Healthy Options – Day Trip

I had the blessing to visit an old college haunt this weekend with my man – Old Glory BBQ in Georgetown, Washington, D.C..  We ate with such frequency that I remembered tables where I once sat, as well as dishes no longer on the menu…  Good times! 😀

I try to be as healthy as I can when I’m traveling, and I am incredibly thankful I am able to do so – once upon a time, that was nigh impossible.  (I also have the support of my significant other, which is a huge deal in my book.)

Despite the down-home-comfort of most of what they serve, it was incredibly easy to get a healthy meal.  The turkey was smoked and grilled, and the veggies were grilled on a kebab – perfect!  If sodium was a substantial concern, the smoked turkey may have been substituted with the chicken (which generally had less, as I recall.)  But overall, it was a delicious (and filling!) combination of protein and veggies.

We got a little hungry later so we stopped at D&D on M Street – a supermarket would have been better in the pricing department, but I was thankful to be able to buy fresh fruit so I’m not complaining!  Grapes have quite a bit of sugar, but we walked quite a bit, and had a long drive back home – for me, that was just what I needed.  I loved the mixture of green, red and black grapes, too – the colors and taste variety keep the snack interesting.
