Have you ever been to Staunton, Virginia? Probably not. Why would you? On one of my drives South to Roanoke, I got hungry and wanted something healthy and quick. That combination is harder to find the further South you go, but Yelp! came to the rescue.
Staunton, which I learned is actually pronounced Stan-ton, is a tiny town in the Shenandoah Valley just a few minutes off the highway. It is the birthplace of Woodrow Wilson, and home to 2 colleges. If you are taking a trip to Shenandoah, it is worth taking a little detour to check out the town and grab a bite after your hike or scenic ride on Skyline Drive.
Cranberry’s Grocery popped up as a grocery store and market with gluten-free options and smoothies. Liquid breakfast=best option if you don’t want to arrive at work with your meal on your shirt (or is that just me that spills in the car?).
All about efficiency here. Coffee and smoothie combined in the Grown Up Snack Attack.
They offer coffee, breakfast, salads, soups, sandwiches, wraps, and the BEST rice bowls. The rice bowl is definitely hazardous to eat on the go, but I would highly suggest you try the Taj Mahal or The Thai. Everything on the menu is clearly labeled with gluten-free and vegan options, and they are really good about substitutions, too.
