A rumble in the Bronx is not just a cheesetastic Jackie Chan movie – it’s also my friend Jason’s hilarious way of saying he’s got some issues in the belly area. All week I’ve also been suffering from a rumble in the Bronx – a sure effect of all the rich food I crammed in my mouth on my vacation. As someone who subsists on greek yogurt, fruit, tons of vegetables and very little meat, my week-long adventure into meat and potatoes land left me feeling a little green.
I didn’t overeat all week (Yay! That’s one benefit of being on the road – you eat 3 solid meals with no snacks), but what I DID eat was salty, greasy, and rich – three things that normally don’t make their way into my weekly eating habits. (Nobody said anything about the weekend, mind you. haha) I started with some cheddar cheese curds in Wisconsin… so fresh they squeak against your teeth!
Then, I HAD to have an authentic vienna beef Chicago hot dog that was “dragged through the garden” (Chicagoans term for a hotdog with EVERYTHING, even fiery sport peppers).
Then, (I had this three times), my ultimate Chicago favorite – a spicy Italian Beef sandwich draped with sweet peppers and nestled into a soft roll with melted cheddar cheese.
As you can see, none of these meals win the “A Skinny Person You Shall Be” award, but they all the win the “OMG delicious noms I never get to have” award! When you travel – do you experience adverse physical symptoms in response to what you eat? Or do you play it safe and stick with your usual eating routine?
