Green On My Greens

in All Posts

Cheerio! 🙂


Another day under my belt, and that many more words into the book!  🙂 Wahoo! It was a pretty productive day, I must admit.


Crossed many things off my to-do list, too!  Are you a big list maker?  I wake up and make a list of to-do items every day.  And I totally write stuff like “shower” and “fix myself.”  Just so I have something to cross off!


Here are my snacks of the afternoon…


Yogurt and granola:


And Clementines.  I just realized that what I’ve been calling Clementines for the past two weeks were actually tangerines.  These are SOOO MUCH better.


I cooked two Boboli mini pizzas (the whole wheat kind) for the Husband and I for dinner.  I had 1/2 (the other 1/2 of mine pizza is the Husband’s lunch for tomorrow… three cheers for multi-tasking in the kitchen).


Underneath all that ooey, gooey cheese is mushrooms and broc


Plus, a side salad:


I actually don’t usually “do” dressing on my salads, which I bought this dressing on a whim today… it was so good!  It’s green because there is parsley and spinach pureed inside.  🙂


Time to watch Gossip Girl and go to bed… I have a 6 miler planned for tomorrow morning, and I’m so EXCITED to run!  One day off and I’m itching to get back.  My sneakers are calling my name,


Sleep tight!  🙂

    haha to do list are my life. Every single morning I make one and you must put shower, eat lunch, get ready, and little things like that because it makes you feel so much better when you can cross everything off the list. I also like to see long list so it looks like I was more productive. Every effort counts 🙂

  • Allie (Live Laugh Eat) December 7, 2009, 9:17 pm

    That yogurt and granola looks way too amazing. I know, you (and I) eat it almost every day, but today’s looks especially great. I’ll be on the lookout for that dressing!

  • Jenna December 7, 2009, 9:30 pm

    the first thing on your to do list should be TO MAKE A LIST so that you are sure you have one thing to cross off 😉

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is December 7, 2009, 9:33 pm

    These are some of the best pics of the pups!

  • Runeatrepeat December 7, 2009, 9:34 pm

    I make lists daily. It’s the only way I function.

  • Erin December 7, 2009, 9:34 pm

    I make a mental list but admire people who write it down. That just takes too much planning for me… 😉

  • Anne December 7, 2009, 9:43 pm

    Ha! It’s so funny that you are talking about lists. All day and this evening I keep thinking about EVERYTHING I have to do and have yet to accomplish. My go to de-stresser is . . . LISTS!! If you have a plan, everything seems so much easier to accomplish.

  • Good Taste. Healthy Me December 7, 2009, 9:44 pm

    Yum I love homemade pizza! I’m making that tomorrow!

  • Kristen December 7, 2009, 9:45 pm

    I’ve got to get some of that Green dressing. It looks awesome. I can totally see it working as a dip for carrots or peppers.

  • Kat (Kat's Daily Plate) December 7, 2009, 9:46 pm

    Wow, James could be a doggie model (Maggie, too! 😉 )
    That dressing looks fantastic!

  • Nicole, MS, RD, LD December 7, 2009, 9:47 pm

    That dressing does sound good!

    I am a HUGE list-maker, too! It really helps me stay organized and productive!

  • Estela @ Weekly Bite December 7, 2009, 9:53 pm

    I HAVE to write a to-do list! I’ve tried google calendar and just can’t get into it. I’m a “write stuff down” kinda gal 🙂

  • Evan Thomas December 7, 2009, 9:55 pm

    I put “make X list” on my list. No lie. Where would we be without lists?

  • steph December 7, 2009, 9:58 pm

    love maggie! looks like a little cow

  • Marisa (Loser for Life) December 7, 2009, 10:01 pm

    I don’t always make lists, but when I do, I find it so gratifying to cross those “to do” items off! Makes you feel like you’ve accomplished so much!

  • Lizzy December 7, 2009, 10:02 pm

    i love making to do lists. i should start putting shower and fix myself cause i love to cross things off too! hehe! have a great night!

  • Sarah @ The Foodie Diaries December 7, 2009, 10:02 pm

    I am the ultimate list-maker. Best feeling in the world is crossing something off the list… though I see you’re a highlighter 😉

  • Madeline @ GreensAndJeans December 7, 2009, 10:10 pm

    Your dogs are such hams! I am a major list maker. I carry a Moleskin with me everywhere that is FULL of lists!

  • Jolene ( December 7, 2009, 10:13 pm

    I love making lists – but I often forget to go back to them and cross things off!! I think sometimes just writing down my “to-dos” is therapeutic.

  • Kristie Lynn December 7, 2009, 10:17 pm

    I haven’t seen that green garlic dressing before – it looks good (and garlic is so up my alley)! I’m planning a 6-miler in the morning too – I’ll have to tell myself that you’re running it too to make sure I don’t put it off (until there is no time to run it) 🙂

  • Laura Smith December 7, 2009, 10:18 pm

    i make lists on my mac with the stickies all the time! my desktop is pretty full 🙂
    I was just wondering what kind of granola you use? I really like Ezkeil, but was wondering what type you use? Thanks!

    • caitlin December 8, 2009, 8:15 am

      that is Harvest brand granola. 🙂

  • Lee December 7, 2009, 10:25 pm

    I’m totally the opposite and never make to-do lists. And then I wonder why I never get anything done.

  • BalancedAnne December 7, 2009, 10:43 pm

    I am a total list maker. I couldn’t keep track of myself without them!

    I made your Black Bean and Sweet Potato Balls today. They were delicious! Thank you for posting the recipe!

  • Sam (Merit to the Carrot) December 7, 2009, 10:46 pm

    Adorable pup. I’m not much of a salad-dressing gal either, but that Annie’s dressing sounds delicious!

    I use China markers and write a to-do list on my bathroom mirror. There’s no denying what has to be done when I see it all day long!

  • Hillary @ Nutrition Nut on the Run December 7, 2009, 11:18 pm

    I am a huge list-maker. Love being productive!

  • Amelia December 7, 2009, 11:19 pm

    Omg I make lists all the time! I have piles of just lists on scrap paper all over my room. Next on the list is to organize the lists! 🙂

    Btw, I was so excited to see Operation Beautiful profiled on FitSugar! Your message/work is really spreading!

  • MarathonVal December 7, 2009, 11:40 pm

    Oh my, I have never before met another person that puts things like “go to work” and “shower” and “set alarm clock” on my to-do-list before you mentioned that you do it too!

    Haha, the people in my life give me grief for this but they will never know the supreme satisfaction of crossing something off your list like we do 😉

  • maria December 7, 2009, 11:41 pm

    I am a total list maker! To a crazy extent!!!

  • Sara December 8, 2009, 12:48 am

    “Fix” yourself?? But you’re already perfect just the way you are! OPERATIONBEAUTIFUL.COM, man! lol, I kid, I kid. 😛
    (Think I need to stop “studying” and go to sleep.)

    • caitlin December 8, 2009, 8:15 am

      hahah its a southern expression for “take off your pjs and put on real clothes”

  • Moran December 8, 2009, 12:51 am

    Seconding Amelia, Operation Beautiful is on FitSugar!


  • Kelly (the Running Phoodie) December 8, 2009, 1:14 am

    I make lists like it’s my job. I seriously have a list that lists the other lists I want to make. And I have a whole book dedicated to my lists which I’ve labeled “List Book”. Somebody get me help 😉

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) December 8, 2009, 1:29 am

    I’m a huge list maker and I definitely add things just to see more crossed off than not. I’ve even been known to add stuff I just did so I can cross it off 🙂

  • Maya December 8, 2009, 4:03 am

    I totally do the same thing! I love writing to do lists and I write things that I donæt need to tell myself to do just so I can cross something off.

  • christie, honoring health December 8, 2009, 5:46 am

    I have started to become a list maker, I just can’t seem to be productive at work without them anymore. I guess I am getting old.

  • Karla December 8, 2009, 6:32 am

    I make lists! It makes me feel good to cross things off it 🙂 That salad dressing looks yummy! I had a lemon tahini dressing a few days ago that I’m trying to recreate!

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg December 8, 2009, 6:58 am

    Mmmm…I just professed my love for Amy’s Green Goddess on my blog, so I’ll have to give that one a try as well.

    I totally write things like “shower” and “eat lunch” on my to-do-lists just so that I can cross them off. 🙂

  • Laura Georgina December 8, 2009, 8:02 am

    I have to make a to-do list for the next day before I go to bed, otherwise I can’t sleep as well (and keep waking up thinking I have to put laundry in the dryer, and other random stuff). And I totally put things on it just so I can cross them off:-)

    Enjoy your run!

  • Caroline December 8, 2009, 8:18 am

    I’m a big list maker! Every Sunday I plan out my entire week with everything down to shower and lunch, just like you!

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Eat December 8, 2009, 8:34 am

    That dressing sounds really good!

    I’m totally a list maker too and if I do something not on the list I go back, write it on there and then cross it out. Ha ha 🙂

    Good luck on your run today!

  • Carolyn December 8, 2009, 8:55 am

    I recently found a ranch dressing made with yogurt. I sneaked it onto the husband’s salad last night. He asked me what kind it was because he LIKED it!! 🙂

  • Lindsey @ EatReadRun December 8, 2009, 9:38 am

    I LOVE LIST-MAKING! Sorry for the caps, but I needed to get across just how much I love them. I have a small “To Do List” notebook at work, which I update at the end of each day for the next morning. I also make weekend To Do Lists, which my husband laughs at. I really enjoy crossing things off!

  • alli December 8, 2009, 9:44 am

    im totally a list maker! i write down the obvious just to cross it off, too 🙂
    what do you usually put on your salads? i dont use typical salad dressing either, i use either hummus or salsa! its so good & low cal 🙂

    • caitlin December 8, 2009, 9:45 am

      usually i just have salads dry. i like it dry!

  • Susan December 8, 2009, 5:11 pm

    I haven’t a sweet clue what the difference between clementines, tangerines and satsumas is. I’m still trying to get used to the idea that pickles are actually little cucumbers…
