[And I'm not just talking about the coffee I was able to carry on my horse.]–the Georgia pines offered up some other delicious treats as well.
glamorous horse back riding....gliding?
Although as I look back over my photographs, coffee DOES seem to be a somewhat recurring theme.
always take food from a flight attendant. even if you don't normally consume cookies before 7:00 AM.
this cup enjoyed on a park bench downtown during a life chat with my cousin.
Packing pre-measured cups of protein powder was an attempt to maintain a semblance of normalcy in my travel diet, but using a different type of oats, on a different stove, resulted in a couple of overflowing bowls of (still delicious) ‘proat’ soup.
i was never a honey bee until i consumed this local honey on pie-spiced proats...I even kick-started my healthy voyage with proats-on-a-plane. Yes, I pre-packed the proats and toppings…and made it through security with just a swab test. TSA: I need to check something in your bag. Me: Is it the oatmeal? TSA: No, it is in a jar. Me: Right. The oatmeal. Y’all should know by know I have no shame, and neither assembling this in the terminal, nor eating it on the airplane, caused me a moment’s hesitation. [I also didn't flinch at photographing the entire process...repeatedly.] Although my Instagram photos might indicate otherwise…I do actually eat things besides oatmeal. Like oatmeal cookies.
We went out to lunch twice, and staying vegan (with benefits) wasn’t that difficult. I had a cheese-less hearts of palm and artichoke sandwich one day… …and a feta-free Greek salad another. [The Maple Mustard Vinaigrette I asked to be substituted was AMAZING by the way...] Of course, y’all know that my ‘vegan with benefits’ diet often just means ‘vegan who eats Greek yogurt,’ so when Chobani appeared in the fridge, well, how could I deny myself a lil’ bowl?
with leftover cranberry sauce on top of course!Staying healthy while traveling (and during the holidays) really isn’t so tricky. But I plead the fifth on what happened to all the cocoa-dusted pecans.
