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! 🙂


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.




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.




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! 😀

  • Danielle April 7, 2009, 12:01 pm

    That wrap looks so good. what a creative combo!

  • Katie April 7, 2009, 12:13 pm

    I am gonna try kashi pumpkin flax bar with Fage yogurt later today! I am so excited!

  • 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

    longgg. It’s ridiculous. They are

  • 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! 🙂

  • 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”. 😉

  • 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! 🙂

  • 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! 🙂

  • 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!
