Viva la Food Truck Revolucion!

Thank goodness for the street food movement! With a heavy workload consuming almost every waking minute this week, I ran out of time to hit the grocery store - leaving us with bare pantries several days in a row. Fortunately, I live in the midst of the neighborhood food truck park revolution, so we found ample opportunity to wander over for a quick nosh that was not hard on the wallet. Look, I'm not talking about a dude handing out store-bought hot dogs on buns. I'm referring to local chefs whipping up Korean tacos, sliders, pulled pork sandwiches, Belgian-style fries, burritos, arepas, cupcakes and all-natural popsicles. Don't worry - I didn't totally splurge on the calories while getting my food truck fix. I stuck to the lighter fare, such as a veggie wrap and gazpacho. But I did have to sneak a small cup of gelato. So much yum!

Anyway, once I hit the store to load up on supplies, I plan to make some of those items myself, using sucralose and other light ingredients to trim the calories. Check it out!
