chicago-20Healthy eating while traveling is easy as pie when you have Larabar! These are my go-to portable travel snacks because they are a gluten-free blend of unsweetened fruits, nuts, and spices – made from whole foods. Each flavor contains no more than nine ingredients, is minimally processed, and are as close to their natural state as possible. Their “Pie” flavors come in Pecan Pie, Pumpkin Pie, Apple, PieCoconut Cream Pie, Key Lime Pie, and Cherry Pie!

I’ve heard about DAVID’s Tea for years and I finally got to visit a store while I was in Chicago. t did not disappoint at all. I seriously spent an hour in there, bought Christmas gifts for all of my friends, and made Matt walk back two days in a row so I could get a “Forever Nuts” tea latte each day! Their branding and stores are soon cute! Love the bright teal color of the cups!

chicago-5Matt and I were walking down the street and did a full on double take when we saw a sign in front of Starbucks that said “BEER.” Say what? Beer? At Starbucks? We walking in to check it out…
chicago-6Lo and behold they serve wine & cheese, and bacon wrapped dates at this Starbucks location after 2pm! We definitely don’t have this at any of the Starbucks locations in Southern California by my house!
chicago-13We stopped by Whole Foods to pick up Sandwiches for lunch, and I was pleasantly surprised to see nutritional yeast at the salad bar! I love putting nutritional yeast on my salads for a vegan “cheese” option, but not all Whole Foods have nutritional Yeast at their salad bars. It’s the little things!

    What a fun trip! I keep hearing about David’s Teas and need to get to one soon. I had heard about some Starbucks doing the 2pm happy hour thing but none here [in Orange County] either.
