Food for our Easter Motorcycle Ride

March 23, 2008 at 4:25 pm 1 comment

Our Easter does not include Sunday services or a ham dinner.  Instead, my BF and I are celebrating the day by riding motorcycles with friends out to a historic saloon from the early 1900s.  Nowadays, the old-fashioned watering hole features a live band and grills to cook steaks. 

“The interior and exterior walls are of stamped tin and manufactured by Sears and Roebuck. It is thought to be one of the last, if not the last of its kind in the United States. The legendary bar installed in 1913 was manufactured by the Brunswick Company in Maine in the 1860’s. As you belly up to wet your whistle you will rest your foot on the original brass foot rail installed when the bar was built.”

We’ve started out the morning on a great nutritional note: Jamba Juice Strawberry Nirvana smoothies.  My small, 16-0unce cup is only 150 calories, no fat and 3g of fiber.  It’s loaded with fresh strawberries and bananas.  I added a daily vitamin “boost”.

For the ride, I’ve packed a few clean eating convenience foods:

I always feel so much better when I’m prepared with good, healthy stuff that I like.  If I choose to eat something else while I’m there, fine.  But, knowing that I have options that fit perfectly into my plan makes me more relaxed and able to enjoy myself.

It’s a going to be a great day.  Happy Easter!
