Movie snacks

Recommended Posts

I just finished day 3, during which I saw a movie at the theater. I tend to be a person who likes to have a hot dog or sandwich in a movie (don't really know why, I just like having a 'meal' in there) so I decided to bring in a Whole 30 meal. I went to Whole Foods before and got some freshly sliced roast beef, dried mango, a Kombucha drink and carrot sticks. I really enjoyed snacking on these in the theater (though I left my carrots til after the movie because they were way too loud!). It was a little weird to pull out a baggie of roast beef when everyone else is enjoying their popcorn, but it felt good to know that I was doing something I enjoy and still sticking with my commitment to the Whole 30. I've also been trying not to have dried fruit at all on the program because I love it and tend to just keep eating it, so the mango felt like a special movie time treat!

I have brought some Gourmet Grassfed jerky with me, along with veggies (baby carrots or bell peppers or cucumbers). Hard-boiled eggs work too. I don't have a big fruit problem, so sometimes I'll bring a chopped apple or pear and eat that with my jerky. I used to use Larabars as my substitute, but that is too close to a candy bar for me and just makes me crave the real thing, so I don't eat those much anymore. If you like hot dogs, Applegate has a really yummy one that has compliant ingredients - you could still enjoy your movie hot dog (just minus the bun and the condiments - may look weird eating a plain hot dog, but they're still yummy :)). Hope that helps!

Has anyone tried paleo cauliflower popcorn? Movies + popcorn = exactly what I want at the movies. Probably SWYPO. I want to try it but as a side dish and incorporated into my meal so that it's not SWYPO. I could even do that by bringing a Whole30 dinner for which paleo popcorn is one of the vegetables. I've found two recipes and I think they're both compliant. The first is savory and like regular popcorn and the other looks like it's sweet like caramel corn.

I went to a play last night at our little local playhouse and I brought along raisins just in case. I had rushed dinner and didn't have really any veggies or fruits so I figured that would balance out a little. I didn't end up eating them - it was a small theater and a really fun show!

Bringing raisins was such a weird thing for me - before my W30 I'd bring peanut butter chips or chocolate chips or something like that. I guess I'm kind of growing up finally (only took 27 years...)?
