    I'm away for a few days this week - staying in a hotel in the Cotswolds (room only) for a couple of nights, then staying at sister-in-laws for a night, then camping in wales for 2 nights.

    Any ideas of food items I can take with me so I don't go completely overboard.

    I'm not back on the plan properly yet but want to limit the damage.

    So far I've thought of

    Alpen light bars
    Crispbreads
    Sweeteners
    Fruit

    Can anyone think of anything else, that would be handy to have at my disposal?

    And also good ideas for choices when eating out?

    Depends what plan you follow, but mug shots are good for lunch on the go-home bargains have got them in at the moment.
    Eating out would all depend on what food you enjoy, what plan you follow, but things like pasta in a tomato based sauce, or grilled meat and salad, or jacket potatoes. Have a look in the eating out thread for tons of ideas
    Have a lovely time-where in Wales are you going camping ?

    Ooo, west wales is my neck of the woods! :D

    Things like pasta and sauce or savoury rice are good for camping, although it depends what cooking facilities you have for camping. You could always add things like tinned sweetcorn or other vegetables to bulk them out.

    Sorry I can't be more helpful...the thought of camping fills me with dread, lol! :)

    Hope you enjoy down in west wales...it's a very pretty part of the country (lots of coastal paths to walk off any syns consumed ;))

    I've never been to west wales before, but really looking forward to it. We're staying inbetween Newquay and Aberystwyth I think.

    I used to live in Aberystwyth-its lovely, and better in the holidays as it's not full of students(before anyone jumps on me, I have nothing against the students-they are just very noisy and drink too much lol)
