WIAW: Road Trip Eats

Hi Friends!

It’s time for another WIAW, hosted by Jenn. This week I’m gonna share some of our eats for our little road trip last weekend :)

Let’s see…we’ll skip breakfast. I’ll give you one guess what it was? You’re right…cereal.

Moving on to lunch. After we got on the road, I started doing a little research to find a vegetarian-friendly restaurant near Ikea. It didn’t take long before I came upon The Veg Head.  It got rave reviews and was only 15 minutes out of the way, so that’s where we headed!

The place was so cute! It had all sorts of fun nick-nacks, sold it’s own granola and recycled EVERYTHING!

And the food? Even better! Here’s what we ordered:

We got the wrap with black beans and curry hummus and the pizza with the ranch dressing on the side.

Here’s what it looked like:

The pizza was FANTASTIC. I think they used a wrap as the crust so it was super thin and crispy, with lots of curry powder :)

Lunch kept us full all the way until we got home. And then we were STARVING! And exhausted from walking miles and miles in the stores. We just wanted to snack, so we headed to the grocery store and picked up some of our favs :)

The sushi was for the hubby…I probably ate almost the whole bowl of grapes and most of the cheese and crackers :) We shared the chips and salsa.

Then, we had a lovely evening together and after a while, we needed a little snack :)

So, I realize this wasn’t the most veggie-packed dinner….but you know what?! Sometimes you just gotta snack :)

Today’s Workout: After two solid days of rest, my knee was feeling pretty good, even after taking the dogs on a 2.5 mile walk…so I decided to tackle a treadmill run and see how it went. I put together a fun little 2-4-6-8 run named because the speed increases by .2 mph, then .4mph and so on. Here’s what it looked like

Pin It

I covered 2 miles and then stopped to play it safe. I was a sweaty mess!


PS…Don’t forget that there’s still a few days to sign up for Foodie Penpals! Check it out if you like food and getting mail :)

  1. Hubby & I are not big Pinot Noir fans, but we have had some Cab from Cellar No. 8 and loved it! Even though I try not to have them too often, snacky days are fun!

  2. I love the idea of combining curry, hummus and ranch dressing–and on a pizza nonetheless! Talk about a serious punch of flavor! I’m definitely going to be trying this at home. :-)

    “Snacky” dinners are often my favorites. I find that eating a meal-sized bowl of one thing (like soup), gets a bit boring halfway through, so I’d much rather take a few bites of this and a few bites of that. :-) I think this is the reason why I enjoy tapas so much!

  3. That pizza looks amazing! Pinots are my go-to red, but I haven’t tried Cellar 8 . Might have to check it out :)

  4. That pizza does look so good. Also, chips and salsa are maybe my favourite snack ever!

  22. Wow! Cruising your website at lunch and now I’m hungry again:) Being a pizza lover I think that picture/description of the pizza was just how I like it. Thin crispy crust with plenty of cheese.

  23. Cheese and crackers is always a fantastic meal…especially when accompanied by red wine!!

  24. I love how wine is part of your snack! <3 :)

  25. That lunch looks so GOOD! Pizza is probably my favorite meal and I like it even better when it’s a thin crust. One it’s healthier for you, but also allows you to enjoy the toppings a lot more. Oh and you don’t leave as bloated! 😉

  26. That is a “snack” from my own heart…although I prefer white! All looks delicious.
