Lunch ideas needed for a fishing trip

Hi all!

I'm hoping to get lunch ideas for a fishing trip to Canada I'm taking in just under 2 weeks. We pull the boat on shore for lunch so I need lunches that will keep with an icepack and don't need to be reheated. Last year I made a chicken avocado spread with paleo bread, but it didn't keep well over the week. I'm also pregnant and am not eating canned tuna or deli meats. The only ideas I've had so far are coleslaw and possibly soup in a thermos, but soup won't be the best if it's 90 degrees, which is very possible. Salads are too complicated and messy. Any ideas are welcomed! Thank you!

There are lots of good store-bought mayos out there nowadays. You can find some with only canola and/or olive oil. Or you can make a vegan-naise at home to avoid the raw egg factor.

Listeria is everywhere, or can be. Nothing wrong with cold roast chicken if you've cooked it well and did not cross contaminate it.

90% of those things will be in the boat with me already! I just need a substantial lunch rather than snacky foods now that I'm preggo. Thank you!

There are only a few things that pregnant women are advised not to eat - so I don't know why anyone would starve. Listeria although rare is extremely serious and can kill unborn babies.

if you avoid everything you could make you sick during pregnancy, you'll die of starvation.

Do you have a recipe for the Russian salad that doesn't include mayo? Pinterest didn't come up with anything :) I don't want processed maoynaise and am hesitant about the raw eggs in homemade.

We have several dinners of fish, but cooking fish for a shore lunch everyday isn't feasible, especially because we eat as a group (8 people) and only spend about 20 minutes for lunch before heading out. We also try to bring as much fish home as possible.

I've never really tried chilled soups before, but I like the idea! Thanks!

Sliced Roast Beef (not deli, roast a beef and slice it). If you have the ability, wrapped in lettuce with avocado. Really, there is not much you cannot eat if you have a cooler. Left overs from the previous night, any of these:

what about canned/packets of salmon? i also like smoked mussels and oysters. beef jerky or beef sticks are good, too. can you eat nuts/seeds/dried fruits/coconut butter/coconut oil? those all last really well.

Might be best to avoid cold roast chicken if you're pregnant

Cucumber salad instead of lettuce. Cold roast chicken goes well in it.

Russian salad - aka fancy potato salad.

Um, aren't you going to be fishing? Fry the fish. Bring some veggies for the week, keep them at the cabin in the coolest place possible, and bring enough for one meal at a time. Pan-fry, eat. What would a caveman do? I suppose in today's simulated-Paleo world, we'd use a propane camp burner, but that's simple enough for lunch.

(reply to comment) Oh I see... well I was thinking Sunfish, but I like them personally. Yummy. Most people use them as bait, but try them if you want.

What about a chilled soup like gazpacho and some paleo biscuits? I love chilled soup on a hot day :]
