#VGNMF16 Cardinal Rules of Surviving Omnivore Dominated Events

  1. Avoid hangry meltdowns, plan ahead.
  2. Never leave the house without snacks and protein boosters.

I work with a lot of nutrition professionals so if this happens to me, I imagine that it has happened to almost everyone.  You provide your dietary restrictions far in advance and on the day of the event are handed bowl of leaves.  I’m not an ungrateful person; but, leaves do not equal lunch.  So instead of risking attacking co-workers in a fit of hangry rage, I’ve decided to just assume I’ll only be provided with leaves and plan accordingly.  This year I was totally right again, but I was prepared.


  1. This is so timely! I’m off to a weekend training camp for Scouters and I’m packing a lot of my own food — otherwise it will be just fruit, veggies, and oatmeal. (Not that there’s anything wrong with those things but they’re not really enough substantial enough for meals on end.)

    • Sounds like an active weekend, I definitely couldn’t run on fruit, veg, and oatmeal alone. I’m glad this helps 🙂
