More Mmmm

in All Posts

Excuse the delay – we were out office hunting again!


Today, we found some potential spaces.  Keeping my fingers crossed.  The Holistic Wellness Center needs a new home.


The Hus was in charge of breakfast – and you guys know what that means!  Kale on the side.  He loves his greens.


Also – over-easy eggs on toast with Mmmm Sauce.   I literally took a bite and said, “Mmmm!”


I had grand plans to go swimming but got thwarted by the office hunting.  It’s a shame because my favorite days are Tuesday and Thursday because the pool does the long course (50 meters as opposed to 25 yards) on those days.  Oh well – maybe tomorrow! 


Luna’s Living Kitchen for lunch.


Whenever someone asked me for a restaurant recommendation in Charlotte, I always say Luna’s.   The food is so fresh and lovingly prepared. 


I got the Kamut veggie burger with collard green wrap.  The sauce was standout – some sort of pickled cucumber topping.  Mmmm again!



It’s time to prepare for Girls on the Run.  I missed the last lesson so I’m very excited to see the girls today.  Our lesson is on healthy nutrition and how to keep a steady pace while running – something I could use a refresher on, too.  Heh.


Thought of the Day:


“The great thing is, if one can, to stop regarding all the unpleasant things as interruptions in one’s "own" or "real" life. The truth is, of course, that what one regards as interruptions are precisely one’s life.” CS Lewis

    I never thought of putting mmmm sauce on eggs before. That’s a really good idea. Lately, I’ve been thinking of switching my bagel and cream cheese for a bagel and hummus, which is sort of the same idea as mmmm sauce at breakfast.

  • Tracy October 4, 2011, 2:04 pm

    Nice quote 🙂 My favorite is “Life is what happens while we’re busy making plans.” Same sentiment.

    • CaitlinHTP October 4, 2011, 7:39 pm

      I also love that quote. So powerful.

      • Liz October 5, 2011, 12:42 am

        Yep, a favorite quote of mine, too! Actually, it’s in the lyrics for a favorite song of mine – John Lennon’s ‘Beautiful Boy’ 🙂

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife October 4, 2011, 2:06 pm

    That food does look MMMMM 🙂

    Good luck with the office hunt! P.s. my little sis goes to GOTR and she loooovvveees it .SO cute!

  • Sophie @ LoveLiveAndLearn October 4, 2011, 2:16 pm

    Searching for a new office building must be so exciting, I hope you find somewhere really fantastic!
    I love that it was Kristien’s turn to make breakfast, I love it when my boyfriend makes me breakfast 🙂
    That veggie burger looks delicious!

  • Casey @ Pocket Full of Sunshine October 4, 2011, 2:22 pm

    I really like that quote. I have absolutely never thought about it that way before!

  • Ashley @ My Food 'N' FitnessDiaries October 4, 2011, 2:23 pm

    I love the quote you posted at the end. C.S. Lewis is an awesome man – full of wisdom and intelligence.

  • Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga October 4, 2011, 2:27 pm

    I love sauces on just about…anything! Glad to see you got creative with mmmmm & eggs 🙂

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) October 4, 2011, 2:30 pm

    Nice quote! I love it! Lunch looks amazing. Hopefully it’s the perfect fuel to get you through the rest of your day looking for office spaces! Good luck!

  • April @ Grits and Granola Bars October 4, 2011, 2:41 pm

    Caitlin! Can you post tonight about how to keep a steady pace?? Pretty please?!

    • jamie @ cueyourlife October 4, 2011, 2:47 pm

      April…do you mean in running, swimming or in life?

    • CaitlinHTP October 5, 2011, 8:53 am

      Ask and ye shall receive! Up this morning.

  • katie @ KatieDid October 4, 2011, 2:46 pm

    I eat kale for breakfast too! Green are the best 🙂

  • jamie @ cueyourlife October 4, 2011, 2:47 pm

    Love the quote! That’s totally what Cue Your Life is about…choice of attitude! We can choose to feel how we want to about our lives! Love it! Thanks for always posting super inspirational ideas!

  • Kathryn @ Flopoodle October 4, 2011, 2:47 pm

    Good luck on the office space hunt! So exciting that the biz is growing so much!

  • Tessa @ Amazing Asset October 4, 2011, 2:49 pm

    Mmm sauce on eggs? Brilliant! Thank you for the idea! And good luck on the office space hunt 🙂

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat October 4, 2011, 2:59 pm

    Luna’s sounds delicious! If I’m ever in Charlotte, I’ll be sure to hit it up! Have fun at GOTR tonight!

  • Christine @ BookishlyB October 4, 2011, 3:02 pm

    I’m really jealous of all the unique restuarants you guys have! Where I live we really lack variety. Too many chains!

    • CaitlinHTP October 5, 2011, 8:54 am

      I hate chain restaurantssssssss!

  • Christie October 4, 2011, 3:17 pm

    Great quote – it’s so true, and that’s why we need to try and always enjoy the present moment! Good luck on the office hunt!

  • Lisa October 4, 2011, 4:24 pm

    that kamut burger looks delish!

  • Mary October 4, 2011, 4:48 pm

    Good luck with the office hunting!

  • Katie @ Peace Love and Oats October 4, 2011, 5:21 pm

    That wrap looks so good! I wish I could find more places that did lettuce wraps as opposed to regular wraps. I love the extra veggies! Also, feel free to share that “keeping a pace” advice with us, that’s something I have a big problem with!

  • Samantha @ Samantha in Training October 4, 2011, 5:28 pm

    I love the CS Lewis quote. It’s so true regarding the interruptions (or set backs) in life – that’s what life is all about – what we grow through makes us stronger for the better.

  • Mama Pea October 4, 2011, 5:32 pm

    You know what would have been better on that wrap? Mmmm. 😉

    • April @ Grits and Granola Bars October 4, 2011, 5:33 pm

      I saw this comment without looking at the name and I totally knew it was you. 😉

      • CaitlinHTP October 5, 2011, 8:55 am

        Obbbviously! I should carry some in my purse.

  • marie-pier October 4, 2011, 5:49 pm

    Oh, please do a post about how to keep a steady pace while running! Maybe you’ve done it before? Going to check right now!

  • christina cadden October 4, 2011, 5:59 pm

    I love C.S. Lewis!

  • Dani October 4, 2011, 6:04 pm

    That wrap looks so good! You and Kath make me want to move down south due to all your amazing, healthy, looking restaurants!

  • Rosa - Fitness, Food, Fulfilled October 4, 2011, 6:24 pm

    I had to do some office hunting a few years ago and I hated it. I love going to open houses, but office space just doesn’t excite me.

    Those eggs look so good. I want a bite too!

  • Carin October 4, 2011, 6:54 pm

    Love the first photo – “office hunting” actually apears to be a creepy sort of stalking peering through people’s windows! That entrance looks great though – is that a possible?

    The garnish pic at the end is yummy – did you do a lot of clever-clogs photo-tinkering? Gotta love sprouts & beetroot curls!

    • CaitlinHTP October 5, 2011, 8:57 am

      Nope, that’s how it really looked! Amazing huh?

  • B n B October 4, 2011, 6:57 pm

    Re: that quote – I find I’m always waiting or searching for something else, something better – but then missing all these normal life moments. Even if they are boring moments like watching TV or washing the dishes – that’s still life. Wish I knew what the heck I was waiting for!

  • Molly @ RDexposed October 4, 2011, 7:13 pm

    Is greens for breakfast a bit European?

    • CaitlinHTP October 5, 2011, 8:58 am

      Maybe??? He’s just a weird vegetarian.

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin October 4, 2011, 7:20 pm

    I hate the 25 m lanes too! It makes me feel like a goldfish swimming back and forth in a tank. 😛

  • October 4, 2011, 8:06 pm

    The quote is fantastic– it reminds me to appreciate and consider the deeper meaning of all things that happen on a day-to-day basis.

  • Brittnie (A Joy Renewed) October 4, 2011, 8:11 pm

    I love that your husband will eat (and craves!) greens for breakfast. My hubby won’t even touch a green smoothie for breakfast, which we all know tastes nothing like greens! Love the quote also. Very powerful.

  • Jill @ justfocuswell October 4, 2011, 8:12 pm

    Love the quote! Keeping my fingers crossed for you that you find a new home for the clinic 🙂

  • Lauren October 4, 2011, 8:19 pm

    I love the idea of the sauce on over easy eggs. I’ve been rocking it on scrambled but I bet your method is even better.

  • kathleen @ the daily crumb October 4, 2011, 8:35 pm

    i feel like i say this a million times a day, but what i would do for a hubby who makes me breakfast!! i am the lone cook in this household. maybe i can borrow kristien on our busy mornings?!

  • Terry Miller October 4, 2011, 11:40 pm

    All these people have these nice, insightful, appreciative comments. I’m just thinking about the “pickled cucumber topping”. Aren’t pickled cucumbers…pickles? haha

    • CaitlinHTP October 5, 2011, 8:58 am

      Hahah love this comment. That’s how the menu described it – yes, very redundant!

  • Khushboo October 5, 2011, 12:49 am

    Mmm those eggs looked good! For religious reasons I couldn’t eat eggs for the last 8 days! Today was the end of that which mean pancakes for breakfast, boiled eggs for lunch!

  • Eliza October 5, 2011, 1:40 am

    Such a true quote..

    I love spinach in everything! I always get asked when I cook “Why do you have to put spinach in everything?!”
    Clearly because it is awesome

    • CaitlinHTP October 5, 2011, 8:58 am


  • Sophie @ threetimesf October 5, 2011, 2:37 am

    Mmmm I really need to try the famous Mmmm sauce!

  • tina October 5, 2011, 7:21 am

    Breakfast should be called eggs benmmmmdict!

    • CaitlinHTP October 5, 2011, 8:59 am

      teheheh i like it.

  • Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count October 5, 2011, 8:33 am

    Love the quote! I still haven’t tried te Mmmm Sauce. Guess I’m just behind the times…I have to get on the stick!!

  • Tina October 5, 2011, 9:18 am

    Do you really delete comments that disagree with you?

    • Caitlin October 5, 2011, 9:19 am

      Nope, I welcome discussion, Tina. I only delete comments that are overtly hostile to me or attack another commenter.

  • Heather October 5, 2011, 10:59 am

    That meal at Luna’s looks outstanding! My mouth is watering.

    Love that quote by C.S. Lewis too. His words are so profound and ring so true. 🙂

  • Ali October 5, 2011, 11:34 am

    You suggested Luna’s, and my dad and I went there when we were in Charlotte. It was amazing! We could only have breakfast, but I’m so glad we did. Thanks for the suggestion. I hope to go again!

    • CaitlinHTP October 5, 2011, 11:37 am

      So glad you liked it!

  • Jolene ( October 10, 2011, 1:11 pm
