    I love Ale House Chicken Nachos!! They’re perfect to share with a hungry boy too (cheap and tons of food!). Hmm…your creation with spaghetti squash looks so good!

    American Idol = Ben & Jerry’s. My college roommates and I used to get a pint right before each episode and eat it while we watched!

    Ok, I am way over in San Francisco, but I have been to The Ale House in Gainesville…my step daughter goes to UofF…I love nachos and any chips and salty stuff. Next time, I will have to order those!

    My trigger food, or my go to food ALWAYS….air-popped popcorn sprinkled with Tabasco and grated parmesan cheese and butter spray. I could eat that every day…and there have been weeks where I have when work was too crazy to think about cooking…oh and when I was single and did not have to worry about feeding my hubby too! 🙂

    I love zbars! They are an every day thing for me too.

    I’m so glad you liked yoga this morning 🙂 If you ever want suggestions for free downloads just ask. I might do a post soon about all of my faves actually.

    i think your meal looks yummy and creative! The pancake reminds me of a latke (sp?) or potato pancake thing….i agree with the bar-exercise thing, i always eat them before/after a work out!

    Your lunch looks fab!

    I’m jealous that you can go home to eat! I always have to bring my lunch which sometimes makes it difficult to be creative… It is normally just a sammy or leftovers!

    I think the leftovers look great! I really like the looks of the spaghetti squash pancakes – I think I would like the squash better when cooked that way.

    I typically eat 1/2 a Clif bar every morning before working out, too! Since chocolate brownie is my favorite, it always feels like I’m waking up to eat a brownie. It makes getting out of bed that much easier!

    As far as triggers go…watching TV always makes me want a mug of Coffee Cocoa. I just like having something warm to hold in my hand because I am cold so often!

    Your lunch looks great to me! I am pretty envious that you even get to go home and be semi-creative! My turkey sandwich and salad eaten at my desk are really not glamourous 🙂

    It seems that whenever I sit down to relax in front of the tv at night, it triggers me to want a snack (whether I am hungry or not!) Luckily I have recognized this pattern and will either have tea or diet hot chocolate and a healthy snack if I really feel the need to eat. Nighttime snacking has been my biggest food issue!

    I feel the same way about my “lunch break” (not work, but between classes) because I have such a limited time to eat/prepare it. But, you still managed a delicious meal so bravo 😀

    Well, watching a movie always makes me crave my family’s homemade kettle popcorn! Movies just aren’t the same without popcorn, no matter what!

    Haha, that’s funny. I think just about everything triggers a chocolate craving for me 😛

    I always like to have coffee when reading books or magazines. I think it is all the coffee I drank when studying in college.

    Great lookin’ leftovers! PB ZBAR!! My fav 🙂

    I can’t think of any food correlations except Christmas = homemade mac and cheese and Thanksgiving = green bean casserole – I have to have those or it’s just NOT the holiday!

    I love Z-Bars too! Especially heated up! The chocolate chip flavor tastes like a homeade chocolate chip cookie!
