A Little of This, A Little of That

by Meghann on May 17, 2010

I LOVE platter plate lunches simple for the fact that you have the option of eating a little of this and a little of that with each every bite. 🙂


Today’s platter lunch was separated into two plates.

Plate #1: Pita, Apple, Carrots, & Broccoli


Plate #2: The ‘dips’ – Almond Butter, Hummus, & Tabouli


Mmm…. let the dipping action begin.



In case you were wondering, broccoli dipped in almond butter isn’t bad.


But, almond butter mixed with hummus? Not good at all. Yuck.

Mid-morning I snacked on some Trader Joe’s Peanut Butter Pretzels.


Healthy Living Summit 2010

Don’t forget! This year’s Healthy Living Summit tickets go on sale Wednesday, May 19th at 9:00 pm! We have a new system in place, so we can hopefully avoid the craziness of last year. Remember when we sold out in less than 20 minutes? Yeah, that was a fun night… Especially when we crashed the server! 😉

This year’s event takes place in Chicago on August 14 – 15th. We have an awesome agenda in the works that includes presentations from your fellow bloggers. We only have 200 tickets for sale, so log on early!

Check out for more details!! 🙂

It was a new jar so it was extra goopy 🙂

I think I could have been satisfied if you just gave me that dip tray and a spoon! Tabouli… it’s been too long since I’ve had some. Yum!

Your dipping plate is such a good idea. Yum!

My lunch was almost the exact same thing except for tortilla chips instead of pitas and mushrooms instead of tabouli!

Snack plates are the best!

I love a tasting platter for lunch–it makes me feel like I’m able to sample a bunch of different foods and really satisfies me. It’s also a mental thing seeing so many different foods on the plate.

I’m impressed you “went there” with the broccoli and almond butter. I wouldn’t doubt that the combo tastes decent enough. Almond butter tasted good on practically anything (except hummus, I guess!). Props to you for being an adventurous foodie! 🙂

Mmmm, I love tabouli! It seems to be popular in blog world lately!

I LOVE platter lunches – no chance of getting bored that’s for sure!!!

I love that plates like that make me feel like I’m getting more food. They are great to take to the office and taste test all day.

Yum! I’ve never had tebouli. Can’t find it anywhere it seems!

15 fitandfortysomething May 17, 2010 at 4:44 pm

I’ve been inspired to make tabouli since you talked about it a few weeks back. I finally pulled all the ingredients together and made it last night… talk about YUM! I see a meal like this in my near future!

I love dips!

18 Melissa @ For the Love of Health May 17, 2010 at 8:16 pm

my absolute favorite kind of lunch too! Yours looks really good! I love your plates too!
I recently try TJ’s PB Pretzels- addictive!! There is a TJ 5 mins from my boyfriend’s in Ann Arbor, MI- and a Whole Foods! Makes me very happy!

I wish I could go to the Summit! Chicago is not far from me at all but I will be travelling to Peru at the time (if all goes as planned!) I hope I can make it next year!

Have a great evening!

I love that you dip your veggies in nut butter. I haven’t gotten quite that brave yet, with the exception of celery. I’ll have to branch out!

Oh gosh, those platers look heavenly! Feel free to send any extras this way 😀

21 Jackie (Peaces of Earth) May 18, 2010 at 12:25 am

Amazing! All the best dips and all the best dippers, I love all the little tastes!
