I generally eat either a pop tart or a package of thin sliced turkey. The
most important thing is to balance what you eat against the conditions of
the day (heat, humidity, etc.  During the tourney I sometimes will eat a
small amount of meat or cheese but only if I know that there will be some
time before my next fight.
