I also just got the new issue of YJ to bring with
And I am bringing the books I wrote about here.
From yesterday's post about Why you make what you make , and the reasons you cook, whether it be for a creative outlet, for fun, because you just have a taste for something, or you just simply need to throw a meal together, it was fun to read your reasons . Lots of you cook as a creative outlet it sounds like.
And most of you who are bakers and do a lot of baking, also don't eat everything you make .
As I said yesterday, neither do I. I love chocolate and all, but even I can only handle so much sugar!
Half White Chocolate/Half Dark Chocolate Outer Coating with Chocolate PB Center
No Bake Vegan Mint Chocolate Coconut Snowballs
Chocolate and Mint Chocolate Chips Coated in Minty Chocolate
I mean, there'd be no way I could eat everything I make , in entirety. A bite or two sometimes is all I want.
Snack: No-Bake Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Bars
These come together in 5-10 minutes with just a bowl and a spoon. And no fancy or specialty ingredients. I should have whipped up a batch of these for the plane but that hasn't happened yet. Oh well.
No-Bake Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Bars
1. Do you bring food with you on trips?
Yes, I do bring some, but not tons. I'd rather try to just wing it and figure out what I'm going to eat when I get to my destination, but there are a few things I'd rather not leave home without. Like stevia!
2. What do you bring with that you just "can't live without"?
When traveling for long distances having some bars or whatever is portable and can tide you over until a better option comes along, is just using common sense.
I truly try to embrace the local culture and eat what is served as much as possible. The When in Rome thing. With food allergies and being vegan, this can sometimes be tricky and does require a bit of luck and a prayer. But, for me, so far not overthinking, being open to trying new things, and not overpacking too much "stash food", i.e. forcing me to just dive in to the local cuisine, has worked out okay for me.
I realize not everyone is as comfortable with this notion though based on your allergies, dietary restrictions, emotional issues with food, etc.
I did a whole post on my top 20 Travel Tips , too. If you missed it, check it out.
3. Are you a fan of Christmas Music?
I have been hearing it played everywhere already from the grocery store to the bank to even Top 40 "popular" radio stations are throwing in some Ruldolph the Red Nosed Reindeer in between Usher and Katy Perry.
I am okay with Christmas music up to a point, but it's like pumpkin recipes for me; a little is fine, but more is not better type thing. I know some people truly get super into holiday music and that's great, but I guess I don't get super into it.
Time for my 20 minute at-home workout and then working on my to-do list. Have a great day everyone.
