A Day in Eats – Travel Edition

Happy half way through the week!  How’s your week going so far?  Since this is only a four-day week for me, it feels like it is zipping by.  Today I thought I would share a day of eats. This is from Monday, which was a travel day for me, as I made my way home from Denver.

I woke up early and decided to take a little stroll down the street to get some coffee.  The weather was so nice and cool compared to Tucson, and I pretty much jumped at any excuse to be outside.

An hour or so later, Sarah and I enjoyed breakfast at Jelly Cafe, which is an adorable little diner.  We started with some house-made donut holes.  I enjoyed the two on the bottom, Mexican chocolate, and maple bacon, they were delicious!  Sarah sampled a lemon jelly one, as well as a Thai peanut flavor.

For my actual breakfast, I had a root vegetable (potatoes, carrots, parsnips and Brussel sprouts) hash with over easy eggs and toast.  They served it with homemade jam.  It was so tasty and kept me full for hours.

After breakfast, I was off to the airport.  I didn’t really eat lunch, I was not hungry until later, and was making my way home until about 3:30 pm.  I did snack on some pretzels and a Rx Bar on the plane though.  It was the first time I had tried the Maple Sea Salt flavor, it was pretty good, but not my favorite.

A couple of hours later I had a package of trail mix, which held me over on the drive home from Phoenix.

As soon as I got home, the little dude was requesting Almond balls, so we whipped up a batch.  We were out of chocolate chips, so I subbed in dried cranberries.

Dinner was a quick one of bagged Asian salad mix, blueberries, and rotisserie chicken.  Quick and simple, but totally hit the spot.

So there you have it, a Monday in eats.  This was a bit of an unusual day, mainly in that I did not eat a normal lunch, which I generally always do.  I knew my eats would be a little off schedule with my mid day flight though.  Whenever I am traveling, I always try to pack a bunch of healthy snacks.  I find that it really helps me avoid impulse buying junk in the airport.  It also helps to save some money, as airport food tends to be expensive.

What are your favorite travel snacks?  Any recent awesome eats to share?

Hope you have a great day!

  1. What a great post! The donut holes look amazing. And at this point in the morning I would love to dive into the coffee!
    I love snacking on “Firecrackers”. If you’ve never had them, you can google for recipe. But I use the mini wheat club butter crackers instead of saltines for even easier snacking!

  2. I have days like this too, often at work when my lunch break comes really late. Healthy snacks are vital! For traveling and work I love almonds and protein bars!

    1. I would imagine in your job that sometimes there is little time for sit down meals. Nuts and protein bars are my go to snacks as well, they are so easy to keep in your purse.

  3. Yum! Those over-easy eggs look so good! Runny yolks are my favorite and I always call them dippy eggs because I can dip stuff in them – so original right!?
    I made some pretty awesome crab cakes for dinner Monday night – I used my husband’s aunt’s recipe and they were a hit! (I shared the recipe if you’re interested!)
    Have a great day!

  4. What a yummy day of eats! I love making homemade bliss balls and cranberries sounds like a delicious, chewy add-in!
