Hello all! I’m back with another WIAT, and this time, I’m taking you with me to Indio Valley for Coachella! This past weekend I was blessed with the opportunity to go to the festival with one of my best friends, and I can honestly say it was the best weekend of my life. I created memories that will last a life time, cried laughing, danced to some awesome music, and over all and an amazing experience. I will defiantly be going back. Anyways, on with the food! I kind of failed at it this day because it was our last day and we didn’t do a ton of eating at the festival, but I’ll include some food from other days as well!
Our hotel was offering free apples and I couldn’t pass one up- especially green, it’s my favorite flavor!
Breakfast: Stopped by Vons and picked up a greek yogurt + a protein bar. Didn’t taste like salted carmel at all, so I probably won’t buy it again. The yogurt was good, though. I ate a little breakfast because we ate a huge lunch two hours later.
Lunch: Before we headed to the festival, we stopped at Rubios, and I got their Balsamic + Roasted Veggies bowl with grilled chicken. WOW it’s amazing. I was extremely full after this meal, and it was full of nutrients!
Snack: Found some charcoal lemonade at the festival and I HAD to try it. It was so tasty, and extremely refreshing considering it was 100+ degrees on this day. I sipped on this while waiting for Marina and the Diamonds, who was amazing.
Dinner: Didn’t get anything else at the festival since everything was over priced, so we stopped at Subway for dinner. This brought me back to the ice skating days when I would eat Subway everyday after practice because it was the only thing semi-healthy that was close to my rink. I got a roasted chicken sandwich on flatbread + basically all the veggies + mustard.
Also had some of these chips because balance and moderation is key. Also I really wanted chips.
What you’re probably all excited for. Coachella offered some interesting food (milky bun anyone?) but everything was also over priced… therefore, I snuck some bars into the festival everyday but I did indulge on some yummy things while I was there! Coachella is full of vegan and healthy options if you look hard, so if you’re thinking of going but wondering about that, you have nothing to worry about that!
This vegan rap filled with carrots + cabbage + beans + a dressing of some sort was so tasty!! My friend got the vegan tacos on the right and I gladly would’ve gotten those as well!
Yes, I did pay $5 for a watermelon wedge. Yes, it was worth it. Hit the spot on a hot day.This lemonade is something I did not mind indulging on. I had it twice and enjoyed it every time.
My friend and I tried a popsicle stand, and got the flavor “Blueberry Lime.” BEST. POPSICLE. EVER. Oh my gosh it was heavenly. Sour and sweet all in one. No words.
Besides food I bought at the festival, I snuck in these two bars each day to fuel me in-between shows and other activities. Like I said- food was expensive, so I didn’t want to spend a ton.
I’ve recently been trying to get myself to like nuts, so I snacked on these Kashi Chocolate Almond Sea Salt Bars with Chia Seeds. I actually liked them, and I didn’t taste a ton of almond (but there were a lot in the bar) thanks to the oats! I recommend them.
Stupid me forgot that we were in the dessert, it was over 100 F everyday, and I was walking around with a hot backpack holding my snacks. Therefore, Luna bars probably weren’t the smartest idea, but I still enjoyed them! I bought two of this flavor, and I really liked it. The only con of it was the fact that it melted and was a mess to eat!
Hope you all enjoyed! I know I did- see y’all in a few days!
