Pizza-induced slumber

Hey hey heyyy 😀 Hope you’re having a wonderful day! About 99% of mine has looked like this:


Oh, and this:


Eye candy… ow ow!

Shortly after my last post (which yes, I was busted for, haha) we hit the road.

Breakfast was my favorite bar:


And a little while later, I munched some of these raw flax crackers:


Carrots and homemade hummus:


We were meeting the pilot’s dadoo (also a pilot) for lonchi, but since we got there a little early I was stoked to check out the health food store across the street. I purchases some goodies (hemp milk, bars, mulberries and dried mango) and then we met the FIL at Savage Pizza.


It’s a pretty awesome little place—the servers are covered in tattoos and the walls are covered with comic book covers. The pizza menu was pretty serious, and most importantly, they have WHOLE WHEAT crust.



The pilots shared a large greek pizza and they made me a little greek cheese-less pizza on wheat:


And in appropriate savage fashion, I ate almost the whole thing:


And proceeded to fall into a pizza-induced slumber as we drove from Atlanta into Alabama.

We’ll be in Little Rock by tonight and will be staying there until Saturday, when we’ll finish the last part of our route to OKC.

Of course I’ll be keeping ya updated the whole time 😉


In total honesty, I LOVE road trips. Even the ridiculously long ones. I’m pretty sure that’s a bonus since we have to move and travel all the time—we’ve driven completely across the US 4 times. Crraaazzzyyyy!

I’m off to scrounge for some dried mango 😀

See you tomorrow!



Something to do: Head over to The Daily Balance for your chance to bid on some macaroons!! 😀

    So glad it’s going well–wow you really have done a lot of road tripping!

  2. Jenna on September 3, 2009 at 7:00 pm

    That pizza crust totally looks like the thick kind that I could just eat the crusts of the slices and be 100% content! Delicious looking lunch.

    I’m not a good road tripped unless there it is scenic or I could have internet access the whole time 🙂

    Have fun and drive safe!

  3. Mara @ What's For Dinner? on September 3, 2009 at 7:01 pm

    I need to go on a road trip soon… how long to Valdizzle from Chicago?? 🙂

  4. theskinnyplate on September 3, 2009 at 7:09 pm

    I love road trips too, but we have to make regular stops at Sbux!

  5. Candice on September 3, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    Yum, that pizza looks delish!!! And your turquoise blue top is super cute!

  6. kay (eating machine) on September 3, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    oh man, i would KILL for a pizza place with whole wheat! i make my own at home… that’d be way easier 🙂

  7. Michelle-pure2raw on September 3, 2009 at 7:35 pm

    hey girl, I am so jealous you have already started your trip…plus you have company : ) I will be traveling all alone Saturday morning : ( But I love road trips too!! You will see amazing things on the way…I did one with the sis from Florida to Colorado, and then back. Crazy! But sometimes the best memories our made during road trips!! Have fun in Little Rock!I have been there though just for a few hours to get some sleep before hitting the road again. I know there is a Starbucks… though they did make my drink wrong 🙁

  8. Emily on September 3, 2009 at 7:41 pm

    I really like road trips too! Its fun to be in the car on an adventure – especially with the respective cuties in our lives. 🙂 Have fun!

  9. Averie(LoveVeggiesandYoga) on September 3, 2009 at 7:44 pm

    I’m so impressed you can blog in the car and do all your computer work shotgun. A little is ok with me but more than that leaves me with that icky carsicky feelin’. The pizza looked awesome btw! I can’t do gluten but I can still say it looked really good 🙂

  10. Lauren on September 3, 2009 at 8:02 pm

    Your road trips always look like so much fun. I can’t say I mind them too much, but they are not my favorite thing in the world. SO long as there are good snacks, music, and a good book…I survive!

    Pizza for lunch looked amazing. And of course you had to finish it, where would you have stored the leftovers? 😉

    Have a safe trip hun!

  11. Pearl on September 3, 2009 at 8:07 pm

    i totally love long road trips, too! something about relaxing in the car, listening to music, being with the person you love. *sigh*.

  12. M on September 3, 2009 at 8:08 pm

    The pilot is SO cute, and you’re too beautiful. What a foxy couple!

  13. Melissa on September 3, 2009 at 8:10 pm

    Your pizza looked amazing. I, too, like road trips. I like stopping to eat at different places. So fun!

  14. angieinatlanta on September 3, 2009 at 8:30 pm

    I know that health store! Seavanada – it’s a good one!

    I’m intrigued to Savage Pizza now; I’ll have to try it out!

  15. *Andrea* on September 3, 2009 at 8:31 pm

    you have great skin!! haha random.. that pizza looks divine. i am in love with trader joe’s whole wheat crust and making my own pizzas with veggies 🙂

  16. Mandy A on September 3, 2009 at 8:49 pm

    Haha! I am in quite the pizza coma myself tonight!!! And I ate less than I normally do and had a glass of wine! We did have bruchetta with it, though.. maybe that was the overload. 🙂

    Anyway, it was gooood!

    Safe travels! Love your updates!

  17. Lizzy on September 3, 2009 at 9:05 pm

  18. Erica on September 3, 2009 at 9:05 pm

    Great car eats girl! I love that its called a survival bar…because isn’t that how you feel when you reach for a bar…thank goodness I have this ;). The pizza looks super yum too. Safe travels 🙂

  19. Tay on September 3, 2009 at 9:06 pm

    Wow that pizza looks fantabulous!! What a nice place to cater to your needs.

  20. Kelly on September 3, 2009 at 9:14 pm

    I love road trips too! The summer I moved to join my pilot, I drove from Georgia to North Dakota, then we drove from ND to Louisiana and back, all over a two month period. I loved every minute of it (well, almost)! Have a safe and FUN trip!!

  21. Shannon (The Daily Balance) on September 3, 2009 at 9:31 pm

    Thanks for the shout-out, girl! The Macaroons are doing SO WELL! 😉

  22. Jenna on September 3, 2009 at 10:15 pm

    oh gina you are too funny with your laptop in the car!
    have fun on the road trip 🙂


  23. Nicci@NiftyEats on September 3, 2009 at 10:20 pm

    Road trips are so much fun. I went From Tx to Az in a day to see our Rangers at Spring Training! I love Greek Pizza too! Get some sleep

  24. Stephanie on September 3, 2009 at 10:52 pm

    Oh man, the menu to this place looks fab… I’ll have 7 of the sav-veg pizzas to-go please! 😉 Glad you are enjoying your road trip!

  25. Rebecca on September 3, 2009 at 11:07 pm

    That pizza looks amazing!! Have a good trip!

  26. Leianna on September 3, 2009 at 11:21 pm

    Those are some healthy road snacks! Never been to Little Rock, but my FIL lives in Bentonville, Arkansas! It’s an interesting state!

  27. Jen (Running With Cake) on September 3, 2009 at 11:29 pm

    You look like you’re having a ton of fun! And the pizza looks fantastic. Seeing your pics really makes me want to go on a road trip. Maybe I can talk my husband into it! Keep enjoying yourself on this long weekend!

  28. Shelby on September 4, 2009 at 6:38 am

    I think road trips are good when you are with someone you love and enjoy hanging with. 4 little brothers in a cramped A/C-less van? Not so much.

    PIZZA! Now I’m super hungry!

  29. Caroline on September 4, 2009 at 8:32 am

    Oh my gosh, I haven’t been to Savage Pizza since middle school! I know where I’ll be headed next time I end up in Atlanta’s Lil 5!

  30. Pam on September 4, 2009 at 8:44 am

  31. Heather on September 4, 2009 at 8:59 am

    I LOVE SAVAGE PIZZA! I always go there when I’m in Atlanta and get the exact same thing you got. Sooo good. Hope you’ve arrived safely!

    I can’t find those Survival Bars ANYWHERE – are they a GA only thing, I wonder?!

  32. Ana on September 4, 2009 at 9:10 am

    I just found your blog last week and I am half way through reading the archives.It is great that you have such a healthy attitude towards food.And thank you for putting this blog out there. Every time I read it,I feel so motivated! Having been going through a fitness slump, I thought nothing would get me back to the gym and away from the fast food.Thank you!

  33. carolinebee on September 4, 2009 at 9:12 am

    Ginaaa i just caught up on 10 posts whilst stealing my neighb’s internet ;D GOOOD LUCK GOOD LUCK!!! So exciting and i am so in the midst of moving craziness…we totally don’t have a blender and I’m so jeal of all your sludgy goodness. I’m hoping to score one on craig’s list asap! Have fun I can’t wait to hear about all the crazy raw adventures.

  34. Low on September 4, 2009 at 9:43 am

    The pizza looks delish! And daaahaaamn you are a road-trippin’ machine (I say that with a hard ‘ch’ as in match-een). Have fun in Little Rock!

  35. Tavolini on September 4, 2009 at 9:57 am

    Ahh–you were in my neck of the woods 🙂 Isn’t Sevenanda a great store?? Hope you guys have a safe trip and I’m looking forward to reading your blogs about school.

  36. foodcents on September 4, 2009 at 10:04 am

    Aaaahhh, a pizza baby might be the best kind of baby to be.

    Safe traveling, on da’ the road!!!

  37. Gena on September 4, 2009 at 10:28 am

    Love all the cool raw snackies! Happy road trippin’!

  38. DIana (Soap & Chocolate) on September 4, 2009 at 11:18 am

    I love that your computer is pink. 🙂 I would get so nauseous using it in the car though! Hope your stomach is stronger than mine.

    I plan on pizza-ing myself into a coma this weekend too. Isn’t whole grain crust so much better? Love the hearty taste.

  39. Angharad (Eating for England) on September 4, 2009 at 2:43 pm

    Love finding places that make healthy choices/substitutions. Hurray for wholewheat pizza dough!
    Um and you are too gorgeous – please stop 😉

  40. Liz on September 4, 2009 at 3:33 pm

    Nice pizza! That’s cool that they did a cheeseless pizza for you. Looks sorta like the Amy’s cheeseless pizza. Major yum. Drive safe!

  41. Sarah on September 4, 2009 at 3:54 pm

    That pizza looks delicious. I’m thinking the next time I order one I’m going to ask for it without cheese. Has any restaurant ever made a big deal out of you doing that?

  42. Mari on September 4, 2009 at 5:52 pm

    Hey! Love the blog. This may be a stupid question, but when you get chickpeas from a can, are they raw? I can’t seem to figure out if they go through boiling or not… ahh! Thanks 🙂

  43. Lisa on September 4, 2009 at 6:18 pm

    Where is your macaroon recipe from? I always see them on your blog and want to make some!!

  44. fittingbackin on September 4, 2009 at 6:33 pm

    Cute on-the-road pics!! I was like wait- that’s ATL then I saw Savage Pizza and was like yup!! Love the pic of you + ‘puter – cute!

  45. jessica on September 4, 2009 at 10:15 pm

    I live in Atlanta and I love me some Savage Pizza! Delish! Have a safe trip!

  46. CaSaundra on September 5, 2009 at 9:13 am

    That pizza place sounds fun! I always want to ask for my pizza cheeseless, but I feel odd. Do you ever get bad responses from the waiter/waitress, or is it something a lot of ppl do?!

    • Fitnessista on September 5, 2009 at 9:39 pm

      hi casaundra,
      i’ve never gotten any beef (pun? haha) about it. a lot of people are lactose intolerant, so i’m thinking it’s pretty common to ask for no cheese

  47. Lee on September 15, 2009 at 7:35 pm

    Aww, I need to read your blog more often. I live like 2 miles from Savage Pizza! Are you planning on stopping in ATL on your way home?
