A Full Day’s Eats

in All Posts

My post-Christmas Party breakfast was Blueberry Pecan cereal (from Costco) and OJ:


And then we drove back to Orlando, and I tried to pull my life together!  I was suppose to go to a Orlando blogger meet-up, but I needed to work on the book and was really tired.  :(  I got a bunch of work done, though!


My lunch was an Arnold Sandwich Thin, egg, and cheese sandwich, a clementine, and a shot of wheatgrass:


Plus, a huge bowl of fruit:


I was CRAVING fruit today.  I joked that I had scurvy after last night’s fun. 😉


The Hus and I did work on the couch.  He is taking his Board Exams next week!  Wish him luck!


We snacked on Naan (found it at Publix!) and salsa.  We split this plate:


And yogurt and granola (I think Greek yogurt is my primary source of protein!):


Dinner was a tag-team effort by the Hus and I.  I was in charge of pasta, and he was in charge of vegetables.

Ravioli with cream sauce and stir-fried asparagus


The Hus mixed the asparagus with some Ginger sauce he found in the Asian section of the grocery store – it was great!


I was suppose to run 6.0 miles today, but truthfully – I was not feeling it! :)  I’m going to make it up tomorrow!  I want to try to stick to my overall mileage as much as possible now that I’m only 26 days out from the DISNEY MARATHONI have been/will be peaking at 30 – 34 miles a week (then tapering).  I know that’s kind of low for a marathon plan, but I get injured so easily and I’m not running the marathon for time… just for charity and fun! But I definitely want to meet my minimum mileage goals to be safe.  I know I can do it. 🙂


Have a good night!

    That asparagus looks great…as do all your other eats. Chobani – yummm!

  • Marisa (Loser for Life) December 13, 2009, 7:48 pm

    Everything looks so delicious!

    I love naan AND Chobani!

    Good luck on the boards, hubs!

  • Evan Thomas December 13, 2009, 7:51 pm

    I think my majority of protein comes from yogurt, too. Yesterday I had 2 Oikos cups and a 2% Chobani, haha.

  • Sam (Merit to the Carrot) December 13, 2009, 7:53 pm

    Greek Yogurt has won me over for the sole reason of its protein content. It’s like a miracle food in a self-serve container. Love it.

    Looks like a great day of eats 🙂

  • Lauren December 13, 2009, 7:55 pm

    Peaking at 34 miles is nothing to be ashamed of! That is amazing! 🙂

    Honestly Caitlin, the fact that you are running this marathon shortly after recovering from a major injury, and the passion that you have poured into every single mile shows amazing courage, strength and unbelievable accomplishment. You rock! 🙂

  • Sana December 13, 2009, 8:08 pm

    Blueberry Pecan cereal is sooooo amazing!

    Good luck- I am glad you got a lot done today. I wish I could say the same…

  • MarathonVal December 13, 2009, 8:13 pm

    Don’t worry about the mileage, you will be fine!!! I usually don’t run more than you are doing before a marathon, and I feel confident that you are very prepared.

    You are going to have an awesome marathon, I know it! 🙂

  • ashleigh December 13, 2009, 8:17 pm

    greek yogurt is where i get all my protein from too! it’s so good and has so much protein that i love to eat it every day.

    good luck to the hubs!

  • Julie December 13, 2009, 8:24 pm

    Good luck to the hubs!

    Of course you can do it! You’re pretty much a machine.

  • Jenna December 13, 2009, 8:30 pm

    lots of great eats today!

  • Lee December 13, 2009, 8:34 pm

    Do you do any runs with the Team in Training group? Just wondering.

    • caitlin December 13, 2009, 8:35 pm

      no. 🙂 they meet 1/2 an hour from my apartment.

  • Susan December 13, 2009, 8:40 pm

    Haha I’m pretty sure Greek yog and cottage cheese are my only sources of protein too!

  • Susan December 13, 2009, 8:56 pm

    Aahhh!! Your marathon is so soon! That means your London trip is even sooner! Funny, I just commented on Kath’s blog about her scrambled egg sandwich for lunch – I had a fried egg sandwich for lunch today too! (with a piece of fruit, of course) Must be good Sunday lunch food 🙂

  • Jessica December 13, 2009, 9:06 pm

    this morning i made your baked oatmeal with cranberries and bananas…and i added coconut on the top for the last five…


    and the corn casserole…
    lets just say it was a hit and no one knew about the tofu…HAHAHA… (evil laugh)
    and I am super excited about the leftovers for the week 🙂

    • caitlin December 14, 2009, 8:39 am

      hahaha i love to sneak in tofu and not tell people. its like my evil vegetarian plot for world domination.

      • Jessica December 14, 2009, 2:34 pm

        I even steered clear of the turkey for this celebration….and I didnt even miss it.

  • Cindy December 13, 2009, 9:39 pm

    I love Chobani and regular yogurt as well! I think it is my main protein source as well. Your food looks so good for today. I have to go to the store as soon as I get paid so I can have good lunches like that!

    Wishing your husband good luck!

  • Christy December 13, 2009, 9:41 pm

    That fruit bowl looks good! Cantaloupe sounds so yum!

  • Madeline @ GreensAndJeans December 13, 2009, 9:59 pm

    I rely on yogurt and peanut butter as my main sources of protein, even though I am not a vegetarian!

  • Matt December 13, 2009, 10:09 pm

    Greek yogurt is awesome. I eat some everyday, but it is starting to get pricey!

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is December 13, 2009, 10:13 pm

    I love your melted cheese sammies…I tend to eat alot of them, too. They are one of my fave comfort foods.

  • Katy @ These Beautiful Feet December 13, 2009, 10:35 pm

    I am SO excited to come see you all at the marathon. Ryan and I are coming to take pictures and cheer you all on. It’s going to be AWESOME!! 🙂

  • Wendy December 13, 2009, 11:42 pm

    Good luck Husband!!!

    You are ROCKING the marathon training plan, Caitlin!

  • Joelle (The Pancake Girl) December 14, 2009, 12:36 am

    Just do what you can do every day! You’re doing great!

  • Karla December 14, 2009, 12:41 am

    Wow! Your dinner looks insanely good tonight! Maybe I’ve just been in this computer lab for far, far too long and need food!

  • Tania @ Moment Anew December 14, 2009, 4:29 am

    Why oh why can I not find Greek yogurt here in Toronto???? 🙁

    • caitlin December 14, 2009, 8:41 am

      you can make it on your own by straining regular yogurt over cheese cloth!

  • sarah (ghost world) December 14, 2009, 7:09 am

    just wanted to say (in case you’re worried) that i think you will be fine with that peak mileage! i just ran a marathon this week on the least mileage plan ever (i think i peaked at high 30s, mayyybe 40), and i PR’d AND made it to the starting line without injuring myself (a huge change for me in recent years).

    more miles does not mean ‘better’! at least not for everyone.

    • caitlin December 14, 2009, 8:40 am

      oh this makes me feel so much better – i know YOU know what you’re talking about, sarah!! THANK YOU! 🙂

  • Katie December 14, 2009, 7:16 am

    Wow your ravioli looks delicious!

  • Nicole, MS, RD, LD December 14, 2009, 8:19 am

    I want to eat what you ate yesterday! Naan and chobani and ravioli with cream sauce and asparagus…mmmmm!

    Good plan with the marathon training, I like it!

  • Janna (Just Flourishing) December 14, 2009, 9:05 am

    I’ve been craving fruit lately too!

    Yay 26 days! No need to worry about your mileage. You’ve been training so much and like you said, you’re just doing it for charity and fun! You’ll do great!

  • mikey December 14, 2009, 9:50 am

    great eats! you will do great at disney 🙂

  • Danielle December 14, 2009, 10:33 am

    I know you’ve posted about the cream sauce that you love on your pasta before but would you mind sharing the brand again? I can’t remember it!

    Also, do you know if making your own Greek yogurt (as you mentioned to someone else in the comments section)also increases the protein?


    • Caitlin December 14, 2009, 10:45 am

      Paul Newman’s and… I don’t know about the protein content! Sorry. 🙁

  • RunToTheFinish December 14, 2009, 1:07 pm

    Just realized that my Google reader stopped updating with your posts. YEAHH on disney!! I was trying to find a way to come up and cheer since so many are running it

  • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) December 14, 2009, 1:18 pm

    There is no Greek yogurt in any of the grocery stores in my city!! It is silly!
