In return for leaving work early, I had to stay and work through lunch. As much as I hate eating lunch at my desk, I do enjoy any excuse to use my Vera Bradley lunch sack. 😉
Not only is she a beauty, she also always comes bearing gifts of good food.
Last night I made a Taboule, Hummus, Sprouts and Feta wrap.
It looked so tiny when I rolled it up I was afraid it wasn’t going to be very filling, but it worked out perfectly.
With the wrap I had a baggie of Asparagus and Cherry Tomatoes.
Raw asparagus is really fun to munch on. It has a nice crunch to it that makes it easy to nibble one.
My thirst quencher
Last but not least there was an Apricot and Nut Granola Bar.
I am always hesitant with new bars, but this one was great! It tasted just like an oatmeal cookie. The perfect dessert for my lunch.
If you are Twitter Fanatic, like myself, then you may know a little something about Follow Friday or #FF.
For the twitter newbies, Follow Friday is a concept where you Tweet which Twitter accounts you are particularly enjoying that week under the hash mark #FF. This way the people following you will see who you are following and they may want to follow them as well.
I decided to do my own twist of Follow Friday. Instead of tweeting who I’m loving on Twitter, what about blogging about who I’m loving in my google reader?
Each Friday I will write about 2 blogs that I suggest you should add to your google reader as well. They may be lesser known blogs or they may be ones you’ve already been a fan of or they may not even be food related. Either way I want to give them a shout out!
Here is who I’m following this week:
- Marathon, Marrying and Milestones – When I first started reading Emily’s blog back in February she was in the middle of training for a marathon and planning her fabulous wedding. I should probably mention the marathon she was training and hoping to BQ for also fell exactly one week before that fabulous wedding she was simultaneously planning. Insane, right? Well she did it and kicked ass while doing so. This past month Emily and her new Husband made the life altering decision to pack up and move many miles away from their family & friends to persue their dreams. Emily is due to start culinary school at Johnson & Wales this month and I can not wait to continue to read as she embarks on this new journey!
- Frayed Laces – This is a running themed blog that Caitlin turned me on to. If you think I am insane, you haven’t seen anything yet. This girl literally broke her pelvis while running a marathon she was hoping to BQ during. She pushed through the pain and miraculously finished. A year later she finally BQed only to injure herself a month before Boston. She still ran it, slowly but surely. She also is a Marathon Maniac, has ran countless Ultra-marathons and completed Half Iron Mans. Seriously you need to check this girl out!
Any good blogs your following lately?
