eating right on vacation . . . part I
Nobody wants to slow down to eat, so we eat in line at Universal Studios. My DH developed a new hobby: taking photos of us eating whole plant foods, with people in the photo eating more typical amusement-park, processed food. Our children found this new hobby MUCH less amusing than we did. Can you see the lady with the Cheetohs behind us as we eat a big bag of cucumber slices?
Almonds are high in fiber, and I made these soaked and dehydrated, so they’re giving us live energy, too. They’re higher in calories than many plant foods (while lower in fat than most nuts). Can you see the cotton candy being sold behind us?
We’re eating Tonya’s For Cryin’ Out Loud Onion Bread here. Somebody behind us is eating some kind of fried dough thing.
Apples and plums are the perfect fruit for the backpack because they don’t get banged up too easily and require no preparation or mess. See the lady eating a push-up popsicle behind us?
We did more on vacation than just eat, believe it or not. For instance, we also took disapproving photos in front of candy stores.
After DH took a million photos with junk-food eating going on in the background, Kincade grumbled, “This has gone far beyond ‘research’–it’s become some kind of sick fun for you two.” Well, I’m about to get the last laugh now. Here’s what happened when Shaggy and Scooby Doo saw Kincade: Shaggy said, “MY TWIN! Where have you been all my life?!” and Scooby put his arm around Cade and walked away, waving goodbye to the “real” Shaggy.
