Ga-hood morning my sinful minions!
It’s a rainy and dreary morning here in the wonderful land of SN, but I have my coffee blinders on so it’s a-okay! Yes coffee (even decaf) seems to induce hallucinations of gum drop rain and cotton candy clouds of cheer.
But it’s still Wednesday and you know the deal. Can I see some id please?
So as the title hints at, I spent a great deal of my day behind the wheel as opposed to eating my meals in my driveway for a change of scenery.
No, I was traveling to the great neighborly state of Vermont where I ran into these equally peanut butter obsessed hooligans. I swear I can sniff them out even across state lines.
I finally got the chance to visit my dear friends at the Vermont Peanut Butter Company which has been long overdue. I swear we actually talked and got some work done instead of posing with peanut butter all day….which I totally could have done too.
Before I departed, I fueled up with a 2 egg spinach omelet filled with herbed goat cheese and homemade pesto, along with some raspberries and blueberries and decaf.
And a cameo appearance of Ms. Carrot & Sir Chunky PB for an on-route snack. I can only imagine the looks I got…
Lunch consisted of a big ‘ol salad topped with cucumber & tomato salad, cottage cheese, and almonds.
No picture?! What gives?!
Well, lunch was eaten in a subway/gas station parking lot where I could count the amount of teeth people had on one hand. Taking pictures of my salad wasn’t on the priority list.
Let’s pretend it was this ama-zing salad from this weekend again. I could eat this FOR DAYS. Oh wait, I did…
Then it was a hop skip and a jump over to Burlington, but not before passing Ben & Jerry’s where I cursed not being able to stop in for a sample and tour….twice. Some fist shaking may have been involved.
I loaded up at the City Market Co-Op where they had a hot bar reminiscent of my Whole Foods experience. BBQ tempeh, baked tofu, Parmesan cauliflower, sauteed Kale and beets, and some broc for good measure.
And my continual obsession with kombucha. This multi-green may be my new fav. Which I say to every new kombucha I try, so don’t feel too special.
And a few bottles of water guzzled when I got home at night. In case you were wondering, it’s about a 3 hour drive one way to Burlington. No one likes to hold it for that long, or stop at that lone gas station…with an outdoor bathroom at 9 at night. By yourself. Three words.
TEXAS. CHAINSAW. MASSACRE.
Thanks again to Ms. Jenn!
Make it a great day!
Do you pack your food or stop somewhere when traveling?
What’s your take on kombucha? Favorite flavor?
