I’m actually kinda excited about today’s WIAW because I’m completely out of my comfort zone of ‘normal Holley foods’.
Matty B and I are on our way back from a fabulous vacation to Lake Tahoe but we drove (yes, we’re crazy) so this is a day of ‘travel eats’. Definitely not typical, but real, nonetheless:)
Before we hit the road I had instant grits with some almond butter and jelly mixed in and a banana. Then, on the way out of town Matty B and I split an amazing blueberry muffin from Sweet Pine Bakery in South Tahoe. So good! I have absolutely no reason to believe this muffin was vegan, but I didn’t really care. It’s a vacation mentality that I’ve gotta get out of! I did have a soy latte, so I haven’t completely fallen off the wagon…
Then we drove. A lot. I snacked…
The snack theme was apparently “apple”. This larabar was good, but my favorite flavor is still peanut butter cookie (shocker, huh?)
Then we drove. A lot. There was loud, obnoxious singing (both Matty B and I were guilty of this, although he wins the prize for highest note reached:). Both Roxette and Heart are necessary for a road trip:)
We stopped at Mt Shasta for lunch. This was a total win for me! I had sad visions of a subway sandwich with no meat, cheese or mayo (which wouldn’t have been the end of the world, but not my fave), but we found a little natural grocery store with a sandwich counter in the back. I got the best sandwich!
WW bread with vegenaise, pesto, guacamole, sprouts, tomato, cucumber, lettuce, and onion. Do you see how awesome this sandwich was? Especially because I was expecting truck stop food.
A couple of vegan ginger cookies were shared between Matty B and I, followed by a ginger tea. So apparently the theme is apples and ginger:)
And then we drove some more. I whined about the blood clots that were surely developing in my legs. I read some more “Veganomicon”. We stopped in Eugene for gas and I perused the gas station aisles, desperate for something healthy. Am I crazy? I think the blood clots were getting to me…
We got home, I surveyed the empty fridge, and opted for a bowl of cereal with soy milk.
This was definitely not a normal day. Very low on fruits and veg, but tomorrow’s another day, right?
What do YOU eat when you’re on the road?
