Eating on the Run in DC

January 11th, 2008 by Mandy


One thing that I have found exceedingly difficult is grabbing something to eat on the run. Think of all the foods people eat when they are in a hurry: burgers, sandwiches, donuts, muffins, scones… ok, I’ll stop, my mouth is watering! Anyway, most of the foods you can carry are portable because they are made of bread, which you can hold onto because it’s dry. Can you think of any GF foods that you can hold? When and who is going to invent something that we can hold in our hands to eat while we’re walking or driving or playing a card game (like this guy, but GF: John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich)?

Of course it is optimal to be one of those people who are “on the ball,” but let’s face it, every once in a while things just don’t work out. So let’s say you’re late for work, and you’re hungry. We’re talking starving, famished, ravenous, your stomach is eying up the other organs for consumption… you get the idea. You get off the metro, push through the crowds, and you know that on your walk you will pass a Starbucks, a Panera/Cosi/Au Bon Pain, and a McDonald’s. We’re all screwed, right? So you walk into your office, finishing off a container of french fries at 9:05 am. How nutritious.
