We ate every meal except one in restaurants. I got very good at selecting nice salads with grilled chicken or other lean proteins on them. And for the most part, the greens were either iceberg lettuce or spinach leaves. I think I did pretty well overall though. One evening I had the best Cobb Salad at a small restaurant… and one day at noon I had a wonderful homemade veggie and beef soup at a golf course. I even splurged and had a giant gluten free chocolate chip cookie, half dipped in chocolate, from a lovely cookie shop in Fort Collins. Wonderful!
Breakfasts were a bit more of a challenge. After the first couple of mornings of having scrambled eggs with crispy bacon, I realized I didn’t want to start each day that way. I had packed some protein powders, raw almonds, and fresh fruit in my bag for emergencies… so I dug into that stash, and made myself a little brekkie in our room each morning before going up to greet our hosts and going out for breakfast. That way I could manage to have just coffee in the restaurant and stay happy till noon. Sneaky, but a girl’s gotta do what she’s gotta do to take care of herself, right?
Since we have been home, I have been enjoying some of my favorite breakfasts… such as:
and also some scrambled egg whites/egg and fruit, with runny PB2 and cinnamon on top.
I have also been experimenting with a new microwave cake that is looking and tasting pretty good as well… recipe soon. This one is chocolate…. MMmmmm.
Are there any foods you particularly miss when you travel?
