Preparing for the storm with healthy foods that are low in saturated fat

We are in Williamsburg, waiting out the storm.  The ride down south was stressful, not knowing if our vacation house would be decimated by the storm...but once we got to Wolf Lodge, it has actually been wonderful.  We are stranded in a Lodge with huge sprinklers and in door pools and slides..the kids are in heaven and we are in heaven because the kids are happy.  We having a wonderful time riding out the storm in a lodge that has generators for back up power. It has not been crowded. 

The only issue I've had is that as we drove down south, it has become a junk food haven...Because its resorty I just see Shoney's, McDonalds, Hardees, Burger King, Sonics everywhere.  I went to the local Walmart supermarket and we loaded up on water, fruit, lean cuisine.  Normally I would see vacation as a time to indulge but the thought really grossed me out this year.  I'm not a food nazi, I will have a cheese fry or two but I can't eat this as a meal.  Thank God!!!  I consider this an NSV.


  1. Rachel, I was wondering how it was glad you guys are having fun at Wolf Lodge. I so relate to having fun watching the kids have fun :-) And I think it's a definite NSV to not use the storm as an excuse to throw caution to the wind and eat like it's the Last Junk Food Supper...that's definitely "old school" fat girl behavior on my part! Stay safe!!

  2. i love the choice of a safe haven from the storm, if you have to evacuate why not do it in style :)

    I have gotten to be the same way with fast food. great NSV!

  3. OMG! SHONEY'S! You are evil. LOL

    I loooooove Shoney's.

    Also, am glad to know you're going to be safe, my friend. :)

  4. Way to go, not giving yourself permission to indulge on vacation! And it definitely fits the bill for an NSV. :)

  5. That's a great NSV! I'm glad the storm didn't ruin your trip.
