WHEW! Yesterday was quite the whirlwind of a travel day, I left my house in Kansas City at 7:30am, flew to Minneapolis, only had a 30 min layover, flew to Chicago, took the train to school, took the bus home and finally walked into my apartment at 6:45pm, still lugging around a heavy backpack and a waaaayyyy too heavy duffel.

I. Am. Pooped.


Seeing as I’m ready for bed (writing this Tuesday night), we’re going to do a slightly shorter version of today’s WIAW, which includes my food from today: travel day! If you’re new to What I Ate Wednesday, head on over to Peas and Crayons, where you can learn what it’s all about and see the other participating bloggers!

And then brought a piece of Udi’s GF bread with Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter, a Chobani bite and coffee with me in the car on the way to the airport.

2. Snack:

I got to the airport plenty early and by the time I was in the middle of my first flight my stomach was grumbling, so I happily took (and ate) the two peanut packets they gave me (plus more coffee).


3. Lunch #1

I had very little time in Minneapolis to find food, so once I found my gate I saw a Starbucks a couple gates down and hurried over there. I got an oatmeal (not my picture, I forgot) and put the nut mix into it, plus some cut up strawberries that I had brought in my backpack from home. The strawberries were sooooo good! Perfect addition.

4. Lunch #2:

After my second flight, taking the train into the city, walking to school and then reading for about an hour, I was getting really hungry. I didn’t want to carry my bags somewhere again so I just threw together a salad from our school’s cafeteria. It included chicken, parmesan cheese, beets, carrots, bell pepper slices, olives, and then red vinegar and olive oil for dressing. I also had an apple which I at a bit later.

I also had a piece of dark chocolate while reading (this x2):

5. Dinner:

Whomp whomp… I had very little food in my apartment when I got home but was thrilled to see that I had a sweet potato, salmon and my greens hadn’t gone bad. Unfortunately after cooking and cutting open the sweet potato I saw it had a couple mealworms… Threw it out. Couldn’t even eat the good parts. Not much grosses me out, but bugs in my food sure does. Also, part of the salmon was just… weird. I think the worms put my senses on alert. I had most of the salmon and all the greens (with extra ketchup…).

6. Dessert/Snack:

Seeing as my dinner was so… filling, I was ready for some peach sorbet (frozen peaches, ice, stevia, salt, xantham gum all mixed in my Vitamix), which I topped with chocolate sauce (sunwarrior protein powder mixed with stevia and cocoa powder) and coconut crumbles (coconut flour, stevia, vanilla, and water – usually almond milk but I didn’t have any).

Followed by some coconut butter and some more coconut crumbles, and this time I made some cinnamon sauce (exchange cocoa powder above with cinnamon).

There you have it! Workout for the day: dragging those bags around! I’m about to fall asleep right now!


Do you have a rolling bag or a duffel when you carry on? (I own rolling bag but my brother borrowed *cough*stole*cough* mine years ago…)


What do you usually grab if you have to eat in the airport or eat fast food?
