Well, my wife and I are back on tour. Our first stop San Diego, California. There's a lot of new cities for us to tour on this next leg of our journey so hopefully I'll get some new low carb tricks and places on here.
We're gonna wreck it!
My wife and I found ourselves fortunate enough to have a friend get us into Disneyland during our time off from tour. Usually that means it's a full day affair. We get up early, get a bite to eat, and head into the park so we can spend a lot of time doing all the rides we want to do. But it can also mean eating quick and eating out, especially since we are on tour and don't alway have a kitchen. So what did this particular day look like for us? Let me break it down for you.
We started our day with a quick bite to eat from the local Jack in the Box. I opted for the Extreme sausage sandwich with no bun. Its eggs, cheese and sausage and it fill you up. And it runs about $2.69 so its not to bad for a quick breakfast fix.
We were going to try to spend the whole day without eating in the park since we knew we had dinner plans for later that day. That was easier said than done. When you are surrounded by al the smells of a theme park at a certain point you break down and get something. We grabbed a bite at The Bengal BBQ which is are favorite spot in the park in Adventureland by the Jungle Cruise. They do kabobs and are pretty reasonable for theme park food. Each kabob is about $2.69-3.49. The veggie one is great because they load it up with yummy choices.
The day ended at the Cheesecake Factory where we had plans to meet some extended family. I got myself a salad to keep it simple and light, but of course had to get a slice of the Low Carb Cheesecake with strawberries. Its soo good and you would never even notice the difference.
All in all the day was a success. We road Star Tours, the Nightmare Before Christmased Haunted Mansion, and of course since it was 87 degrees in November we took the plunge on Splash Mountain. Not a shabby day.
Its lower in carbs cause it uses Splenda so its a lot better option than other things out there. Still has some carbs in it so you should watch out but if you are in a pinch and need something sweet on your low carb ice-cream give it a try. But don't go over board.
Halloween has always been a holiday that I have enjoyed. It's not one i take to seriously like some people do, but I do love the creativity that the day causes in people. It's always fun to see what friends and family come up with for costumes.
In the past my wife and I would volunteer at a harvest party to hand out candy and see all the kids, but we haven't been able to do it the last few years and being on tour makes it a bit tricky too. We decided this year to spend our Halloween by dressing up, taking advantage of the Halloween discount at Chipotle, walking through a local churches Trunk or Treat festival, and handing out some candy at home while watching a bad "spooky" movie. We had a great night.
