Nourishment on the Road!

Summertime is travel-time for many people … and I was no exception this Summer.  My travels took me to Colorado to celebrate the 4th of July events in the Denver/Boulder area.  At first, I was quite concerned that it would be difficult to make healthy choices on the road – but (in fact) I am happy to report that “it was not difficult at all”!

Here is a quick look at what nourishment on the road looks like to me:

  • Poached Eggs with veggies, avocado and fresh fruit (the Buff in Boulder, CO)

  • The Elk Burger with Bacon and Avocado [no bun]  (Wapiti Restaurant & Pub in Estes Park, CO)

Snacks:

  • Raw macadamia nuts, pistachios and coconut flakes – a sort of trail mix that traveled with us everywhere we went (Sprouts Supermarket in Boulder, CO)
  • Water, water and more water!
  • Yes  … coffee, too!!!

See how easy that was?  whew!!!!
