On the road

I need some help. First emotional support and then ideas.

I just got a part in a touring children's theater company and I am leaving in a few weeks to travel in a van for about six weeks. I'm going to have to eat out every single meal. So the emotional support is needed in realizing that I don't get to cook for six whole weeks.

On top of that, I don't want to eat at nasty chain restaurants the whole time and am going to use chowhound to find local places where I can chow down. What I'm wondering is if besides fruit and nuts, do you have any ideas of things I can prepare that won't go bad and I can take with me to keep me healthy and energized (it's an INSANE schedule).

I'd love to have jerky, but I only eat organic meat (also gonna suck on the road) and have no idea if this is something i can make myself.

Someone should start a 'restaurant' where you do your own cooking...you bring in the food and your friends and you get a small station to mix, puree, saute and bake to your hearts content. Sigh....

Thanks in advance!!
