Sick of Salad

Being on the road with dietary restrictions sucks!!!

I am getting really tired of eating a salad with oil & vinegar for every meal. 

Today’s lunch restaurant I couldn’t even get protein to eat. So it was salad with oil & vinegar. 

Epic bars and RX bars to the rescue because I was starving to say the least. 

I can’t wait to be home again and cooking my own meals.

Traveling

Ughhhh traveling again. I hate it! Okay I don’t hate traveling when I’m going somewhere fun, but when I’m not headed off for fun traveling sucks. 

Especially when it’s a 12 hour car drive. An entire day wasted in the car. 

Add into the day spent in the car finding acceptable food options for me to eat on the road is hard or next to impossible. Convince store foods aren’t going to work for a person who can’t eat gluten, dairy, added sugar, or soy. 

This morning breakfast at the hotel consisted of some fruit, a few potatoes, and a 1/4 cup of nuts and seeds I had brought with me. 

I can see the next 4 days living off of RX Bars. At least they are clean, healthy, and full of protein. 

Of course my husband is consuming crap left and right. It’s 1 and he’s already had 5 sodas, 2 candy bars, caramel popcorn, and breakfast at the hotel which consisted of biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon, and yogurt. And, he wonders why he gains weight. Uhmmmm you’ve already consumed more calories than do in 3 days, and oh yeah you aren’t burning any of them off sitting in the car for the next 6 hours. 

I will be eating a whole lot of grilled chicken salads over the next 4 days. I’ll be sick of it by the time we get home. 

Why can’t restaurants cook clean and offer healthy items instead of all this food filled with crap. I would just like to eat some real meals from time to time when I travel. 

Eating On The Road

Today was spent in the car and then staying in a hotel which means no home cooking for this girl. 

I ate breakfast in the car. Not the best place to do such an activity but hey we do what we have too. I made up a couple of containers of nuts and seeds for this weekend knowing that I’d be traveling.  

 
Yes that is actually a baby formula stackable container. I used to put my protein powder in them when I was drinking those things. Worked great my nuts and seed mix as well. 

We stopped at Ruby Tuesday for lunch where I had the salad bar with some vinegar on my salad and then got a turkey burger with no bun and some grilled zucchini. I was a bit miffed at the husband as I told him to order me a club soda and when I sat down to take a sip I nearly spit it across the room. As he ordered a tonic water for me. Gross!!!! Too sweet and full of sugar. He tells me they are the same thing. Uhmmmm no not even close. Grrrrrr!!!! Listen for once in your life. 

Once we made it to Aanapolis and did some driving around we went to dinner at a brewery. There was nothing and I mean nothing I could eat. I ordered a Caesar salad without croutons, cheese, and dressing. So yeah I had a bowl of romaine lettuce with some grilled chicken on top.  

 

Looked good but it sucked. Oh and cost more than my husband’s dinner and appetizer. Awesome. 

I came back to the hotel and ate an RX Bar as I was still pretty hungry. 

We are tailgating before and after the Navy Football game tomorrow so I know there will be food I can eat as I’m bringing stuff I can eat. 

Go Navy!!!

Getting Ready To Say Goodbye To Dallas

Today is the last day here in Dallas for me. I fly out early tomorrow morning. Spent the day roaming around Traders Village. A ridiculously huge flea market complete with amusement park. 

Followed that up with dinner in Roanoke Texas which according to them is the Unique Dining Capitol of Texas. Which from seeing the town and the restaurants I’m willing to go with it. We ate at the Twisted Root Burger Company and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a good meal. 

I’ve had a great time here in Texas. 

Tomorrow it’s back to VA. 

Hotel Life

We are staying at a pretty decent hotel here in Dallas. We basically have a studio apartment so that’s awesome because I can cook some meals. And, lots of room to do some working out. Plus the place has a fitness room, pool, basketball court, and volleyball. Not that I’ll be playing basketball and volleyball but I can hit the elliptical, bike, and pool. 

Tonight we are having chicken fajitas for dinner since I can cook. Whoooooo!!!!

On The Road

I’m in Texas for the next day 10 days. I’m spending time with the husband while he is working here and checking out the great state of Texas while I’m at it. 

The only thing with traveling and being in a hotel is eating clean and healthy. I love traveling and going to new places but I do miss my kitchen and being able to make meals. 

I have healthy snacks but that only takes me so far.
