A road trip is not an easy time for a restricted diet, but with a combination of preparation and an understanding family I made it work.
I made sitting in the car for six hours work by dressing in comfy-cute clothing.
Plus my driving moccasins.
<– name that show!
Food from home was for breakfast. A sandwich of tempeh, Smart Balance, and strawberry jam (a killer combination) on a Sandwich Thin.
A small apple.
A piece of leftover Halloween candy.
And a sugar-free Red Bull from a gas stop.
I have been seriously tired lately; I need to make sleep a priority next week or I should basically just buy stock in energy drinks.
For lunch I was jazzed to spot a Sheetz.
I had a medium soy milk latte with marshmallow syrup.
I’m doubtful that the syrup was actually vegan but I’m taking a loose approach to the challenge on this trip. The coffee was delicious with tons of foamed milk and I was glad I got it, vegan or not.
Plus a veggie burrito.
This was not delicious. I made myself eat half so I wouldn’t be too hungry for dinner but if there had been other options I probably would have tossed the whole thing.
For dinner we got Italian food with my in-laws. P.S. We are staying with Adam’s sister and her husband and getting to spend time with my two nieces is making my ovaries hurt; they are so flipping cute!
A piece of bruschetta to start.
The waitress was very nice about bringing me new tomatoes when the first batch came out sprinkled with cheese.
And two slices of veggie pizza (sans cheese) for dinner.
Healthy, vegan, and tasty; I’ll take it.
