Your ankle deep in wet mud, with a sunburnt face and rumbling tummy whilst being crushed in a mosh pit. Music festivals, the pinnacle of British summer. But if you’re not interested in the customary mix of burgers and booze, then you’ll probably be quite limited for food options.
We have the perfect solution for you if you long to stay healthy but still partake in the fun; a stock of jerky! A packet of Wild West Original Jerky contains 37% protein and is low in fat. It’s also in light and handy sized packaging that will fit in your bum bag (if that’s your thing) and is tastes good.
Jerky will stay fresh in your tent as it doesn’t need refrigerating and it comes in a waterproof bag, ready to take on day 2 and 3. Wild West also comes in a range of flavours so your tastebuds won’t get bored.
If you’re still hoping to keep your diet relatively balanced at a music festival, you could bring some nuts and dried fruit which go really well with jerky. These won’t spoil when you don’t have fridge handy.
Protein is essential for muscle re-growth and it builds and repairs skin, hair and bones. As your body does not store protein, it’s important to eat regular amounts throughout the day, which can be problematic at festivals. Keeping a pack of jerky on you will help curb the hunger pangs until you’re able to escape the crowd and get yourself a pint and a burger.
All that’s left to do is enjoy the festival atmosphere and probably get a pair of wellies.
