MyLarry burns calories like mad (the nutritionist has him on 9K a day once and he gained no weight).
The new tuna pack steaks are very good. We have a vac-sealer this year, so are looking at a lot of beans and rice, pre-cooked and ready to heat.

Vac-sealing really does seem to be the way to go. As per before, most of the group is abroad (myself included) but I go back to the states regularly so I'd probably be the one picking up the unit if we went that route.

If I'm not feeling that hungry, I'll turn down a big meal effort because I wouldn't want things to go to waste or won't feel like going to all that effort. Of course regardless of what I'm feeling my body needs fuel, so I need to get protein and carbs and all that good stuff. I've found smaller portions and where possible pre-cooked (then we use a vac-sealer to keep it fresh) to minimize prep time works best.
Perhaps some smoked fish or tinned goodies, whatever you think might work within your diet and tastebuds. Depending on your plans and cooler scheme and pre-event shopping, you might even be able to hook up some salmon or tuna from a grocer in Reno that you can pack on ice in your cooler then grill up once you get there.
Good luck & eat well!
