Happy Wednesday! I hope your week is off to a great start. I had an awesome birthday yesterday, and felt so loved by my family, friends, co-workers, and all of you!
This is what I arrived to at work first thing in the morning. Talk about a great way to start off a Tuesday… even if it was pouring down rain!
Today’s What I Ate Wednesday post is going to be a bit different than normal. I often share my eats from a weekend or a work day, but today I am showing you how I eat on days when I am traveling. Eating on the road certainly is not elaborate, but it can still be delicious! Let’s check out what I ate on Monday when I was traveling back to Nebraska after my weekend at home.
I left for Nebraska at about 7:00 a.m. I ate this Blueberry Muffin Larabar at around 8:30. Sometimes I will eat dry cereal in the car, but I wanted something a bit more portable and easier to eat this time around.
I knew that I had a lunch packed from home for when I arrived to the office at noon, but I was starving with about an hour left of my drive. I snacked on several handfuls of these Korean BBQ seaweed chips. They are super delicious! If you do not like seaweed, you may not be a fan. But I love it and loved these!
So here is where I am supposed to have a picture of that lunch. Well… I was apparently so hungry that I forgot until there were about two bites left. I decided to spare you that picture. For those who are interested, it was leftover Beans and Rice and peas from dinner the night before.
I also ate a small handful of raw almonds before I left work. I knew that it was going to be a late dinner because I had an evening of grocery shopping, food prepping, unpacking, and laundry ahead of me. The almonds nearly did the trick, but I found myself hungry again on the drive home from getting groceries. I finished off the bag of the seaweed chips to tide me over.
Dinner was my favorite quick and easy meal as of lately: a veggie quesadilla! I used a brown rice tortilla and filled it with spicy red pepper hummus and sautéed zucchini, onions, peppers, and tomatoes. I dipped it in a black bean salsa.
As you can see, my traveling days are a bit “snackier” than normal, but whatever works! When you are driving and low on energy, eating frequently is a must.
