Meals on WheelsPosted: February 8, 2011
Happy Tuesday, loves!
After mourning the end of football season, I began to wonder what I’m going to do with my newly free Sunday afternoons. I’m still in the grieving process (I believe I’m currently experiencing in the denial phase), but I understand that the gaping hole will be filled once again in six months, and in the meantime, a few extra hours each weekend can be filled with other things
that will never be as exciting or interesting as football.
For a girl who has eaten five meals in her car over the last two workdays, a bit of extra time can’t be a bad thing!
It started innocently enough, with an 9 bar between errands. A few days later, I caved on a few slices of carryout pizza before I exactly carried it in the front door. The following night I noshed on an apple left over from my lunch to curb my hunger on my way home.
Before I knew it, I was transporting breakfasts of Publix fruit salad or peaches with whipped cream…
Slowly but surely, I began bypassing the Tupperware and getting the grub straight out of a can…
Pineapple in my cupholder – nothin’ but KLASS over here!
I tell you, folks, it’s a slippery slope! A snack here, a smoothie there, and the next thing you realize, you’re stopping in Publix on the way home to grab a mango Chobani to snack on for your commute…
By far one of my favorite flavors!
Let’s be honest, if you were stuck in a jam like this, you’d be scavenging in your glovebox for something edible as well!
Just promise me that you’ll stop me before I try to down sushi or tacos behind the wheel 😉
Do you ever eat in your car? What are your favorite transportable foods? Some of my other favorite healthy snacks on the go are Clif or Lara bars, cheese cubes, Emerald chocolate almonds and Green Monsters!
