Going to Richmond Virginia for Hummus

Hello!!! I am currently blogging from 30,000 feet in the air on my way to Richmond,VA.

A few months ago I was contacted by a rep from Sabra about working with them as an ambassador. One of the perks is a trip out to VA to tour the Sabra factory! I have always been a big fan of Sabra and am super excited! I can’t believe this is my life. I am very lucky and happy and stinky (the stinky will be explained below).airplane

First, let’s just call it what it is – yesterday I ate crap all day.

There was no specific reason for it really… First I was sitting at the table when Ben and my fam ate lunch and there were fresh fries and onion rings in front of me. (I didn’t order anything because I wanted movie theater popcorn for lunch AND had a late breakfast.)IMG_8325 (800x600)

The point of my visit was to take my little brother to see Frankenweenie 3D. movies

I decided to sneak in my own popcorn to be a little bit healthier. (I did eat the whole bag, but I always do. 1 bag = 1 serving just like 1 watermelon = 1 serving)IMG_8330 (800x600)

And to top off the carb-fest my mom had Reese’s Pieces cereal and I took a baggie of that to eat on the car ride home. This stuff is GOOD!!! Get some.reeses cereal

We headed home early because I had to pack for today’s travels! I ended up making a big salad for dinner to balance it all out.

This morning Ben’s alarm went off at 4:30am because he was meeting his friends for a hike. I decided to get up with him as it’s impossible to sleep while someone else is getting ready at our place.

Since I had time to kill and it was too dark to take a nice lil’ walk I did Jillian’s 6 Week Six Pack Level 1.

Then, I quickly showered and made breakfast to eat at the airport. IMG_8334 (800x600)

There was almost a snag in my plans when the security officer wasn’t sure if I could take my oatmeal through. They asked someone over walkie-talkie and for a second there I was worried. The lady next to me in the line said, “I hope you get to eat your breakfast,” as she gathered her things. And I think that made them feel bad so they let me have it!

I had a quick layover in Dallas and searched for a Dunkin Donuts to get my iced coffee fix. (Seriously, I should just open a franchise in CA, right?!)

Unfortunately, there was not one in my terminal so I got Starbucks IC and an apple for something like 60 dollars.IMG_8345 (800x600)

I bought Jenna’s book White Jacket Required and am already halfway through it from my first flight. It’s really good!!white jacket required

And I’ll soon be ripping into my weird packed lunch…

It’s 1 hard boiled egg, 2 whites, snap peas and a sweet potato. This is clean eating at it’s stinkiest. I swear I don’t do it on purpose, but I always manage to bring smelly foods on the plane and then feel dumb when I go to eat them. But, we have no protein in the house other than eggs so it was my only option. clean eating bag food

I have no idea how I’m going to eat the sweet potato, but I did salt it Smile

I debated dressing comfy or decent last night on twitter and the response was a resounding COMFY! Glad I listened, but when I get to Richmond I only have an hour before dinner so I’m hoping I have enough time to get to the hotel and freshen up!comfy in dallas airport

Question:  What was the best thing you ate this weekend?

    Hummus from Trader Joe’s for sure. I ate it with sun chips, pretzel slims and veggies. Have fun….I want to travel for a living. :) Maybe when my kids are older I can convince someone to let me be their ambassador.

    Have fun in Richmond! I’m going there in December so I’m going to keep my eyes peeled for your upcoming posts (I wanna see where you eat! Need rec’s!)

    But that book? Uhhh…yeah, no. Not good. Not a good book at all.

    I love that you stole cereal from your mom’s. I once accidently ate an entire box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch while at a friends. I forget how delicious cereal can be. Glad you were allowed to bring your breakfast one the plane. They tried to steal my Chobani once, think the chick was just hungry!

    Stuft Mama’s Kristen had a spaghetti squash post last week…I tried it for the first time this weekend and its TO.DIE.FOR. Boy, have I been missing out on some deliciousness. 😉

    And…what is SABRA? A new type of bra? Yea, I have no idea but that seems like the obvious…now, I will have to google it.

    Ahhh i’m super jealous that you’re visiting the Sabra factory. Love their hummus :). By the way the only Dunkin Donuts in my small town is opening up down the street from my apartment complex. Not sure if it’s a good thing or a bad thing.

    Enjoy Richmond! I’ve been reading your blog for a while and just relocated to Toronto from Richmond! Didn’t even know Sabra was based there :)

    Haha you’re hilarious! I’m slightly envious that you got through with your oats- I’ve tried to bring PB and oats on a plane a few times and always get taken away, I guess it depends if you get a friendly, food-loving TSA agent ;P
