I had a delicious lunch today.  Eating a satisfying lunch with lots of little tastes make me feel so GOOD!


Started off with Roasted Red Pepper Soup.


And two pieces of toast with hummus and cucumbers:


And cherries for dessert!


Exciting Healthy Living Summit News!


I swear I don’t have a stash of Healthy Living Summit Golden Tickets that I’m squirreling away.  They just keep popping up (people find out they can’t attend)!


Since the last Team in Training Silent Auction was sooo successful, I’ll be running another one THIS MONDAY!   Stay tuned for the official rules and details.  Remember all proceeds go to an excellent cause AND the winner gets to attend the BIGGEST BLOG EVENT of the year!  Woo hooo!


FYI, we’ll be putting the final agenda up later today.  It’s full of fun activities, special guest speakers, and great giveaways.  The Summit is going to be a blasty!

    Yay, I can't wait to see the final summit agenda! I love having little tastes of things for a meal. For dinner a few nights ago I had warm baguette with butter and salted radishes (French-inspired) and zucchini and hummus. Yum!

    That's great there's another ticket out there.

    I'm hosting my sister's bridal shower that day, so I'm out. But otherwise I'd try to bid on something. 🙂

    I had a cucumber salad for lunch today! (chopped up cucumbers, pepper, & a tsp of EVOO) YUM! I never thought to put it on toast with hummus!! I must try it!!

    Ever since you wrote about how you couldn't decide what dress to wear, I've been stressing too!

    Cucumbers are one of my favorite veggies (fruit? they have seeds..). I love to eat them with a little whipped creamcheese and tomatoe

  • Mel @ She Runs Brooklyn July 24, 2009, 12:15 pm

    I'm with you.
    Lunches and dinners with multiple components are so key for me. I always eat a yogurt as part of my lunch, but eat it last so it feels like dessert which helps my mind feel satisfied after i eat… sounds like i play mind games with myself haha

    every time the summit is referenced, I am even more sad I can't go!!

  • Sarah July 24, 2009, 2:35 pm

    What luck for your Team in Training fundraising!

    quick question – this has nothing to do with the post, but I know that you are so knowlegable of serving sizes. The Rotini pasta I bought said a serving size was 2 oz dry. Is that really only 1/4 cup dry? that seemed so tiny to me!

    lovely lunch by the way 🙂

    peanut hmmm probably, unfortunately. im not sure though!

  • Gab* July 24, 2009, 4:23 pm

    Yum! The roast red pepper soup looks delicious, I've never had that before.

  • Anna July 24, 2009, 5:07 pm

    Toast and hummus is my fav! I could eat it everyday for lunch. Sometimes I put hummus on an English muffin and have it for breakfast 🙂

  • Stacey July 24, 2009, 5:18 pm

    Gah 🙁 Totally sucks I can't go! At least I will get to see tons of pics on tons of blogs that I read, haha

    PS. Soup looks soo creamy and delish!
