A Late Lunch

in All Posts

Wow, you guys have some great non-food blog suggestions (check out the comments for the post below).  I’ve looked at most of them and some are really great, so thanks for sharing!

 

Is it 2:00 already?  It’s like the work fairy has come to visit me! šŸ™‚

 

Mid-morning snack (I was freakishly hungry and lunch seemed far off):

Times two.  I love dates.  Nature’s candy!

 

And lunch was light, summer-y, and veggie-packed!

The star of the meal was a cottage cheese-stuffed Flat Out Wrap with chopped celery.

Mmm. 

 

And veggies, since I feel like I’ve been lacking in that department lately.

My first mid-afternoon snack was a crushed Kashi TLC bar with some vanilla Chobani yogurt.

Re: the whole crushing a granola bar and putting it in yogurt, I feel like I’ve discovered the solution to global warming or something.  It’s that momentous.  Because now I get to enjoy my crack — err yougrt — addiction without OD-ing on portions.  It’s so hard for me to self-portion granola, so this kind of forces me to.

Delish!

 

Another Funny Website

 

Since we’re all sharing non-food blog websites today, here’s another great one:  F My Life.  Prepare to laugh uncontrollably!

    Bars were the only way I could eat Greek yogurt back in the day! Z-bars more specifically!

    I’m intrigued by your CC wrap! Sounds great!

  • Lacey Nicole April 7, 2009, 11:23 am

    oooh these granola bars are seriously the best. FYI: TRY IT WITH MILK,… mmmm.

  • EatRunLitigate April 7, 2009, 11:23 am

    I think you mean this website, but yes absolutely hilarious. They actually have a good mobile website too so it's very easy (& entertaining) to read while bored in the car/doctor's office/any other place you are waiting…

  • Colleen April 7, 2009, 11:30 am

    OMG – that website is toooooo funny! I can’t wait to send that to my sister!

  • Run Sarah April 7, 2009, 11:32 am

    yum! I have to try granola bars and yogurt together, sounds so good!

  • Bec April 7, 2009, 11:34 am

    oh yes, fmylife has provided me with many hours of distraction this term. Also the saying fmylife has become hugely popular on campus!

  • iowagirleats April 7, 2009, 11:36 am

    Yes! I love CC stuffed wraps – awesome!

  • Tyler April 7, 2009, 11:39 am

    LOVE fml (although i can waste way too much time on it..)

  • Brandi April 7, 2009, 11:40 am

    i feel the same way about granola bars on yogurt! i don’t have to worry about the amount – plus it’s fun crumbling them up.

  • Olga April 7, 2009, 11:42 am

    I love the website F my Life! It reminds me that all of us have “those days” =)

    And I’m in the same boat with you about granola…I stopped buying it!

  • Balance, Joy and Delicias! April 7, 2009, 11:45 am

    cottage cheese wrap looks scrumptious!!!! and that granola with greek yogurt… the best dessert ever! šŸ˜€

  • Danielle April 7, 2009, 12:01 pm

  • Katie April 7, 2009, 12:13 pm

  • Victoria April 7, 2009, 12:17 pm

    Ha. My husband loves FML He reads the super funny ones to me while I make dinner.

  • Anonymous April 7, 2009, 12:22 pm

    hi! i’ve been reading for a couple months now, and i’m so impressed by your ability to roll up a wrap. what is your technique?!

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point April 7, 2009, 12:27 pm

    anon hahah when you roll, you need to tuck the inside flap down really hard and roll very firmly. i find having a wet “glue” like mayo or mustard helps too.

  • katecooks April 7, 2009, 12:28 pm

    mmm i could eat yogurt + cereal + fruit every single day of my life for every meal i think! in the last year or so, this has become my breakfast every day LOL. i try so hard to have something else but i CRAVE this like nothing else!!!

  • Nicole (anotheronebitesthecrust.wordpress.com) April 7, 2009, 1:13 pm

    I loooooove dates! They taste like caramel to me! Mmmmmmmm.

  • Niki April 7, 2009, 1:29 pm

  • Missy April 7, 2009, 2:25 pm

    read people’s stories all day
    longgg. It’s ridiculous. They are
    ridiculous.

  • Leah @ Simply Fabulous April 7, 2009, 3:22 pm

    I love using Kashi bars in my cereal or yogurt mixes…total portion control!

    Guess who got her wedding rings today?? I’m totally excited – I remember when you and Hubby picked yours up!!!

    I haven’t posted about them yet because Hubby-to-be hasn’t seen them and I think he deserves to see them before the blog world LOL, but wow- I love them!

    Just wanted to share my excitement with you! I know how much you love wedding talk! šŸ™‚

  • Matt April 7, 2009, 4:03 pm

    Never thought of cottage cheese in a wrap… Might have to try that one!

  • Lisa D. April 7, 2009, 4:14 pm

    fmylife is HILARIOUS! I spend way too much time on there! And yes, crushed up granola bars in yogurt is a great snack! When i discovered it I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner. I used to think I had to snack on one or the other but both together are DIVINE

  • nibblesandwiggles April 7, 2009, 4:15 pm

    What a great solution to your granola “problem”. šŸ˜‰

  • Zesty Cook April 7, 2009, 4:27 pm

    HAHA I am laughing at your comment about crushing you granola bar… and global warming reference…. lovin’ it!

  • livelovelaugheatlearn April 7, 2009, 4:54 pm

    I’ve never even thought of doing that with bars before! You are a genius because I cannot stop when adding Go Lean Crunch to my yogurt!

    Thanks for the advice about the Shred by the way Caitlin! I’m going to start shredding for bad knees tomorrow! šŸ™‚

  • Nutritious is Delicious April 7, 2009, 4:57 pm

    Couldn’t agree more about FML….too funny!

    I always crush up my granola bars too! It’s just better! Lol

  • Adi (oatonomy.com) April 7, 2009, 5:18 pm

    Weee glad the work fairy visited you too today! šŸ™‚

  • ChickPea April 7, 2009, 9:24 pm

    Cottage cheese as a wrap filling=genius!

    FML is a major procrastination tool around here. I am pretty sure my friends and I have wasted hours on that site!

  • healthy ashley April 8, 2009, 7:45 am

    I can’t get over how great that website is!
