    Very little. Before a gig I have a mild case of the butterfies that suppresses my appetite. During a break, when I calm down, I typically order a burger with something if the venue has a kitchen.

    No iron supplement?
  4. Yeah I got a gut and type 2 diabetes so I should really get away from the grains. Beer is a little bit harder to stop.

    Ah man. I just keep it....safe.

    Once upon a time, I went up the street to a bar that featured venison chili on Fridays, and that was the day. I had some. Pretty good.

    I very nearly missed the downbeat. Luckily a sprint from bathroom to stage was fast enough to make it, but it was close, and while I didn't feel fantastic on stage, the worst was, well, behind me.

    Ever since then, I take fewer chances before the gig.

    Check out most of the Gig Reports in the TB Band Humor & Gig Stories forum. There are lots of food photo shots there!

    Last night it was vegetarian coconut curry, since the band decided to eat together. I can skip the meat until later. But on the way home I grabbed a microwave croissant egg & cheese at the rest area vending machine, which is becoming a habit.

  12. Replies need to be weighted for who has and who hasn't a gall bladder. That meal may or may not have short term ramifications. :eek:

    Light meal. Baked chicken or cod. Kale or peas and corn.

    Then an apple and peppermint tea.

    Generate I like to eat food. And some beer. Liqour makes for a bad set. Not too much beer either. I eat regular food but that's before I go to a venue and hardly ever play within the first 2/3 hours of doors opening.
