Hey everyone!!! Soooo my computer has decided to not connect to the Internet, anywhere in Colorado Springs (currently at Starbucks… Not working) so today’s WIAW will be posted from my phone! Haha bear with me.
If you are new to WIAW then head over to Peas and Crayons to check it out!
Today’s WIAW is from yesterday, when my mom and I drove from KC to Colorado Springs (9 hours). I had intended to get up at 5:30 to get in an 8 mile run but apparently set my alarm for 5:30pm… I woke up just after 6:30 and sprinted out the door!
During my run I had two Cliff Shot blocks and then after I had half a banana with almond butter (no picture, I was in a hurry!).
We got on the road and stopped at Roasterie, my favorite coffee place! I got an iced coffee with almond milk and 1 pump sugar free hazelnut. Perfection.
For breakfast I’d made some oats with chia seeds on the stove and put them in a container with some plain Greek yogurt (stevia and vanilla mixed in) and some fresh berries).
Then I happened to be driving while it was time for lunch so I had this new Larabar (amazing!!!) an apple (unpictured) and a couple small pieces of beef jerky. It had soy sauce on it But I bought it anyway in hopes it wouldn’t bother me… It did. Dumped that.
When we switched I had my lunch: a salad with mushrooms, black olives, roast beef and manchengo cheese with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. So good! I also had a couple M&Ms my mom shared.
Later when it was my turn to drive again I needed a pick me up so I got an iced coffee from McDonald’s. Great story. I had just been telling my mom that I’m not a fan of McDonald’s because they take normal food and make it unhealthy. I went in and ordered a medium iced coffee. She handed it to me and it looked like milk. I asked what she put in it and she said cream and sugar… I asked how much cream. 5 containers!!! FIVE! Without me asking for any! Luckily she offered to make another with just one cream and no sugar. Case and point.
It was about dinner time when we got there and we ended up going to a Mexican restaurant called Crystal Park Cantina. It was delicious! Although I want impressed with their chips: very thin.
We both wanted enchiladas (made with corn tortillas) so my mom ordered the spinach and portobello and I ordered chicken with manchengo cheese and we each traded. They were both delicious!!! I was very impressed and it was quality Mexican, not greasy or overly sauced. So good!
After dinner we went to an ice cream place suggested by a friend. I ordered Rocky Road and Strawberry. Unfortunately neither of us were impressed and ended up tossing most of the ice cream. At least we tried!
Then it was to home and in bed! I hope you all have a great Wednesday!
what’s your favorite road trip food?
ever had a bad ice cream experience?
