Sunday Check-In

Today is transitional!

I just got back from San Francisco. The time change is only two hours, but the lifestyle change is drastic. As I am settling back in to healthful habits and waking up after 4 hours of sleep, I am also re-packing for a rapid turn around. With less than a full night’s sleep at my apartment, I am heading out for the New Harmony Music Festival, where I will spend time with my family and deliriously blissful time with friends that are basically family. I am looking forward to this next trip, but I really have been going at full force. Going on vacation and to a festival and to visit family… but still, going! It may be late August before I’ve spent a full week at my apartment. Today is about getting myself in order and resetting to the pace of the rural midwest.

I am looking forward to a long drive with music, my thoughts, and my cat…actually, not especially psyched about driving alone with the cat, really, but I suppose it will be nice to catch up with him after the long trip away!

Hoping your summer weekends are lazy and restorative.

Travel Snacks

With weeks of back-to-back travel ahead of me, I have made sure that I am well-stocked with snacks. These are my favorite reliable snacks to bridge the gap between the time that you had dinner and the time that your plane lands, or the snack that lets your skip a fast-food joint on the road, saving you time/money/nutrition. What is your number one go to snack while traveling? (I knew a family who always bought gas station corn nuts while on the road. Admittedly, I will usually stop just for an Arizona tea.)

In-shell Pistachios, if you are not driving. (Out-of-shell if you are!)

Mix almonds and craisins for THE BEST salty/sweet flavor combination

My favorite pre-made trail mix is Target’s Sweet Cajun

I like to hide emergency Clif bars in my purse or backpack or that middle console in the car so that they are there if I really need them. I especially love these caffeinated mint-chocolate bars.
