All You Need for Travel is Coffee.

And apparently Greek Food.  I can never get enough of that stuff.

Okay yes, I did promise I would do a food blog about my journey to New York City.  I didn’t take photos of everything because I didn’t really have the energy and the trip wasn’t about my food blogging or blogging.  It was about the broski.

Anywho I also cannot promise I eat the most healthy or even remotely so.  I can promise you I ate all of this and more (did minimum exercise…it was a fabulous break) and didn’t gain any weight.

It’s important to remember that you don’t gain weight in a matter of meals.  It’s life choices baby.

The most important thing about EVERY single one of these meals was I completely enjoyed each of them.  All of them were nom.com. Actually thinking of all my eats makes me want to travel and visit my brother everyday taking the same exact route.

I had 4 Starbucks fraps. And I loved every single one of them. That giftcard I got for my birthday was the best thing ever. I don't know why I contentiously pose with my coffee.

Chick fila breakfast stop. The broski wanted one last time before he only ate college food.

Okay so this salmon salad was the greatest salad I have ever had. EVER. NYC you win.

These meatballs were the size of a small baby...once again winning NYC.

But then I had this gyro meat salad in New Jersey and it came with pita bread. So many hard choices of best salads...

When I visited Katelyn in Rochacha a few months back I fell in love with lentils..when I saw them on the menu I had to order them again.

Not sure why I was in such a greek mood but ordered a greek salad for an app at a DINER of all pancakes (um don't you worry it was after 11 and they didn't serve breakfast) Oh and confessional. I have come to terms with onions. They are now okay in my book.

But the spankopita pie was another great nom. Omg and it was only 5 dollars! Best.Meal.Ever.

As you can see-I’m not going to get my panties in a bunch not eating like I do at home.  Give me coffee and give me…well more coffee and I’ll be good to go.  Mind you-my family isn’t big breakfast eaters so we didn’t go that route.

Can you believe I didn’t have pancakes for an entire 3 days and the world has not ended.

  1. Nice eats Hollie!! I kind of look to eat indulgently while traveling and I don’t worry too much because I know I will go back to my normal eats within days!

  2. Looms like you had an amazing trip! I love NYC!
    When traveling, i get nervous about not having something I will be able eat or want to eat. Also my food allergies don’t help! But I’ve gotten really good at packIng snacks and food for myself when I travel! I love Larabars, apples, and little nut butter packets!

  3. That’s great that you didn’t stress too much over food whilst traveling! I tend to get nervous in general when I can’t plan what I’m going to have, like yesterday at a family lunch. But I pushed myself to have that 2nd piece of Pavlova (it was delicious). All the food looked so yummy..black lentils is one of my fav foods.

  4. I like traveling because it means we’ll be eating in restaurants often which means I can choose foods that I don’t normally make at home — like fish!

    Those meatballs are seriously huge! Wow.

  5. Mmmm 4 starbucks fraps, I could get used to that! 😛 everything looks amazing, especially that salmon salad!!
    I used to worry about it, but not anymore!

  6. Travelling does make me nervous when eating… eating at new restaurants can make me nervous too, just because being a vegetarian, I never know what they’ll have. But I do like trying new foods when I’m travelling or eating things I don’t normally eat.

    I usually eat more on vacation but all our vacations are also really active so I don’t really gain weight. All your food looks super yummy especially those Greek salads. Have you ever had baklava, it’s a dessert and it’s yummy and Greek?

    A.L.

  7. That salmon salad looks phenomenal.

    Yeah, traveling freaks me out food-wise because of my eating disorder…sometimes I have to pack things for myself to avoid full on panic attacks, hah. I have an extended overseas trip coming up and have legit been contemplating mailing 14 quarts of my “special” brand of choc soymilk to Eastern Europe…this is not normal. 😛

  8. I can’t believe we missed each other in NYC! I am glad you enjoyed all of the amazing looking food pretty lady 🙂 Travel definitely makes me nervous food-wise. I am getting better at it though

  9. Nice eats girl! Everything looks delish! And I agree…when you’re on vacay ya gotta take in the local eats otherwise its just a waste! Like for example I am in boston this weekend and plan on eating seafood up the wazoo!! I mean literally stuffing my face with the freshest stuff on earth! Oh yes.

  10. I usually gain weight when I travel but when I come home I get back to normal so I try not to freak out about it! My boyfriend would completely agree with your have coffee will travel attitude! Boy is like a walking Starbucks gps:)

  11. Nom nom. That all looks delish. Traveling makes me excited for eats because I get to eat things I don’t normally! 🙂

    Happy to be back in your blogging life.

  12. I would seriously eat greek food for every meal if I could. I love it.
    My favorite part of traveling is trying all the cool new restaurants and foods and what not, but I hate when there are no vegetarian options and all I can have is iceburg lettuce salads. I used to struggle a lot but now I look forward to eating out and trying new things without preparing it myself — for me it actually takes the “anxiety” away since I just come to terms with making do with the situation.

  13. Nope food is definitely one of the best things about traveling! Although I don’t like I gain weight after traveling I wouldn’t worry about food when traveling for a single moment.

  14. Looks like a great trip! I’m jonesin’ for all of that now… except I’m not a fan of feta lol. Glad you kept a healthy mindset and enjoyed it all because you need it!

    And no, never “Rocha” lol, only variation is “Raahhhhhhchessta” like they say it up there ; )

  15. I think my favorite part of trael is that 99% of road stops out here have A&W’s at them… meaning I can get diet rootbeer and it makes me happy.

    I became absolutely ADDICTED to small little greek restaurants due to an ex bf. We ALWAYS ate at them, they’re fantastic becuase they have EVERYTHING

  16. OMG that salad looks amazing!!! I love salmon on a salad- theeee best. I usually don’t get nervous eating/traveling, I probably eat less while on the road and on vaycay than I do working from home every day soooooo.. bahah.

  17. Whoa, that salmon salad does look amazing!!! I prefer to eat at home most of the time because I like things a certain way…MY way, LOL! But it’s a nice change when given the opportunity to eat out on vacations and stuff. It’s all about the balance! And coffee. You definitely have your priorities right with that one. 😉
