As a vegetarian it can be difficult to find much to take to festivals that constitutes an actual meal. I sometimes break for a week and eat fish as that greatly extends my options but I want to try not to this year.
Tins of fruit are a given, plus snack bars etc... last year I took baked beans to eat cold which was great on day one but then the tins heated, cooled and re-heated inside the tent so many times that they made me ill. And I won't be taking a stove or anything.
So... suggestions?! They have stalls etc of course but I wind up spending like £150 on food if I eat every meal from them.
I did some work for a camping company once - their meal in a bag things were actually quite tasty!
I'd suggest things like cooking falafel and keeping it in an airtight container. Not sure if pasta and rice can be unrefrigerated for a few days.. But that with pesto is good cold. And of course sandwiches and the like.
I travel quite a bit & tend to bring things that don't need refrigerated like cans of tuna (if you give into the fish). I always have peanut butter & honey (unless you're vegan) with bread & a bag of pretzel sticks to dip in it too. Along with protein bars & canned meals. And I find corn chips to be pretty filling. Not much fancy when I'm on the road.
I know how hard it can be, I was a vegetarian for about 8 years. Would have been vegan if cheese didn't exist, never desired to give that up. I still think eating meat is way too overrated.
I'm not sure about your side but over here we have a thing where they sell pre-made yeast dough in the supermarkets, we pinch off little balls and deep fry em, they can be kept for about a week and go well with any sauce or jam or syrup. Kind of like doughnuts, but we call it vetkoek. Convenient for fests.
I also love the baked beans tin thing, can't the cans be kept in a cooler?

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.

SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.

FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

Dreadlocks Co.: Anyone thought of becoming a dreadloctician fulltime? I found some awesome courses on getting certified at http://divinedreadlocks.com/

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.
