Road Trip USA: Nutrition Edition [Day 1]

Day 1 – Wednesday, October 21st
Bridgewater, NJ to Chicago, IL
12 hours in the car

Ready, set, go!  I packed an assortment of apples, nuts, and Stephanie-approved snack bars, and I had a filling breakfast of scrambled eggs with feta and gluten-free toast before Katie and dogs picked me up.

We drove through New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and stopped at a Panera in Ohio of lunch to getthe Fuji Apple Chicken Salad without cheese.  It even came with an apple for later!  I was hoping to get a gluten-free, casein-free soup, but none of their daily offerings fit the bill.  The cashier was friendly and helpful enough to bring me a binder that lists all of their menu items along with any allergens they contain.  Despite the limited menu for me, it’s great that they have that information handy.

Late on, Katie and I were received in Chicago with delicious, homemade turkey chili courtesy of our hosts, Whitney (friend from New Jersey) and Joe (her boyfriend and the cook).  End of Day 1 and so far, so good!
