Actually people are not allowed to bring food in, but, well, let's just say I'll carry a big purse! I certainly won't be eating the food there, and I don't think I can go 4-5 hours without eating something, especially as I will be surrounded by the typical ball park food smells, which are bound to make me hungry. Not the dogs mind you, but the fries! Love that smell.
So what can I make and tuck into my purse to bring along to eat. I already figure on bringing some grapes to much on and maybe some dateballs and a bag of nuts. Any other ideas? We will be eating lunch on the way in the van and then eating supper at the ballpark.
Thanks for any help!

What about a Gorilla Sandwich..........You can hold and eat it just like a hot dog. It is a Cucumber cored and stuffed with everything you love. If you are interested do a "Search" on this Forum, there are So many RAWonderful directions to help you have Much RAW Success making it.

That was a great idea Spicyful, thank you for responding. I ended up only eating an orange the whole time we were at the ballpark because I was holding our 8 month old almost the whole time! That's one way to contril your food intake huh?

I seem to be living at baseball games these days and I bring everything and anything with me. Most of the games are my childrens' games so I don't have to worry about sneaking anything in. I recently went to a "real" game and just stuck a tupperware type container in my purse and no one cared. I had called ahead and told them that I was on a special diet. The main office gave me special permission to bring my food in. It turns out I didn't need it because no one searched my purse.
Today I had 3 baseball games so I brought a Mexican salad that I made with romaine, tomato, peppers, olives, red onion and a guacamole dressing with avocado, lime, garlic and salt. I made it for yesterday's baseball game and it was so good that I made it again and I even made an extra one for my hubby and he loved it.
I also made up some nori rolls to bring for my dinner. I have a laptop lunchbox so I filled it with seaweed salad, nori rollls and sugar snap peas. It was lovely.
I have been known to bring collard wraps, zucchini pasta with marinara, stuffed tomatoes, stuffed mushrooms, asian cole slaw, kale salad, wilted broccoli rabe, and any and every kind of salad with me.
The only thing I have trouble with is mixing the sauce ahead of times on some of the things. For instance, if you mix the marinara with the zucchini noodles ahead there will be a lot of extra water in the container. You can just drain it out but I find it unappetizing. I will usually keep it separate and mix it when I am ready to eat. The guacamole dressing makes the salad a bit wilted and I enjoy that but I wouldn't want to let it sit for more than a couple of hours before eating it.
I use a variety of containers and now the laptop lunchbox. I also recently bought some bamboo silverware so I don't have to waste the plastic stuff. It's really great and I enjoy making my food in the morning and having it all done for the entire day. I can't tell you how many people comment on the smell of the food when I open up the containers at the games. They all want to know what I am eating because it smells so good.
