Do you know what does not encourage healthy eating? Road trips.
While my older son went to a week-long summer camp, my younger son and I spent the length of the camp session driving around Minnesota visiting friends and relatives. And eating. And eating. And eating.
We spent one night at the gorgeous riverside cabin of my friend from culinary school, who had just that morning turned in the manuscript of a new cookbook but still cooked an amazing meal for us that contained many vegetables prepared perfectly. But aside from that, most of our intake was not so healthy.
I know what you’re thinking: State Fair. But no, we did not go to any state fairs. We did not eat any corn dogs, or deep-fried candy bars, or any specialty foods. We just ate a lot of really normal stuff, but just every day, with no break. You too could replicate this experience by going to your favorite vacation state, driving around, and buying something doughy and either sweet or salt-crusted to shove into your mouth every time you stop the car.
I’m not sure what compelled me to take so many pictures of the things I ate, but I got home and found some photos on my phone. So here it is, a photo essay of what you eat when you drive around Minnesota for five days. Remember, you can do this, too!
