I feel sorry for anyone who road trips me. I am not one of those people who limits their consumption of liquids for the sake of fewer bathroom stops ;)
My lady and I are away for the weekend visiting her family, so in honor of the occasion, I bring you a “What I Ate” style post for a day on the road:
Heading out of our hotel this morning I filled up my water bottle with hot water from the breakfast bar and dropped in a 50/50 mix of Ginger and Caramel teas with stevia. A Dr. Ohira’s probiotic was washed down with this concoction.
Mid-day we stopped at my FAVORITE natural foods store of all time in Missoula, Montana: The Good Food Store. Brit picked up a veggie sandwich and I ordered a TRAY full of delicious liquids. I’m sure the baristas had no idea that the entire order was for me ;) My afternoon consisted of a 16 oz cucumber/parsley/celery juice (with a touch of stevia), a 16 oz americano (yes, it happens sometimes), and a 16 oz carrot/spinach juice with cinnamon and nutmeg. Many roadside bathrooms were attended.
It was “taco night” at our destination and I discreetly loaded up my plate with greens and salsa with a side of raw smoked sheep cheese from our earlier health food store excursion. It was a big ‘ol chunk of cheese, probably 6-ish ounces, but I did my best to share (*sighs* so difficult…) samples of our “fancy cheese” :)
Dessert was a mug of Blood Orange Chocolate tea (stevia-sweetened) and a shared bar of delicious, creamy, local dark chocolate. I tried to have a slightly smaller serving of chocolate tonight as I did have coffee earlier and well, I want to sleep tonight (oh yeah, and it’s acidic and stuff).
That’s it for today, we’re tucked away into a cheesy little hotel for the night, happy Easter weekend!
