Whew! We’re back in North Carolina – it feels like everyone in the world was traveling on I-95 today, too. The rest stops were all so crazy.
We did a very poor job of planning meals out before we left my in-laws, so we were stuck with two lunch choices: Subway (again) or the gas station. I opted for the gas station because, honestly, if I have to eat one more sub with raw veggies and cheese slices, I will die. Melodramatic, I know. But also true. 😉
So, gas station it was!
Here’s lunch – kind of random, but pretty decent. A serving of dairy, fruit, veggies, and whole grains! Just all in bottle and bag form. 🙂
I was pleasantly surprised with that V8 Fusion – it tasted like fruit juice but the first ingredients were veggies from concentrate. I also munched on a Clif bar and a Cracker Barrel cheese stick.
A banana later on:
And, somewhere in South Carolina, I spotted a Dairy Queen billboard and forced the entire family to take an unscheduled pee break so I could get a Blizzard.
Now, I’m in the backseat with the pups. I am so sick of traveling… but we’re so close. Soooo close.
A dinner filled with lots of fresh veggies is calling my name! Oh – and a new book. I’ve got grand plans to start Running On Empty, a biography about a 57-year old ultramarathoner.
Hope you have an excellent night, too!
