At the Desk Lunch

by Meghann on January 22, 2009

I have a doctor’s appointment this afternoon, so I had lunch at my desk to make up the time difference.


For some reason my stomach was growling at me today. I had my midmorning snack of a Tangerine at 10:00am but for some reason that was not enough.


I held off as long as I could, but at 11:45 I could not take it anymore and dove into my packed goodies.

I had the left over roasted veggies from last night. I topped them with tomato sauce and black eyes peas and was in absolute heaven. Oh how I love this combo so. 🙂


On the side was a chunk of the Rosemary Olive Oil Focaccia.


I have one more chunk of this bad boy left. It’s sooo good, I have to say I haven’t minded eating it with every meal this week.

Now it’s 12:30 and I’m full and happy. I hope this lasts me through my 3:30 doctor’s appointment and my trip across town to pick up my new bike (yay!).

A special thanks to Jasmine (Sweet and FIt), Kristin V., Katie F., and Lindsay J .for their donations today!! Keep them coming!

I absolutely love the combo. of black-eyed peas and tomato sauce — sometimes I think I like it better than pasta w/ tomato sauce! YAY new bike!

That lunch looks awesome!! I was just thinking yesterday how I could never go on a diet where I had to cut out bread – fresh hunks of bread are just sooo amazing!!! I often pack soup (Progresso haha) and then go down to Au Bon Pain and grab a whole grain baguette for $1!! Yummm …

Lunch looks delicious! Cute lunchbag!!

Hey Meghan!
I am a blog lurker of yours! I love you site. I am pretty obsessed with food and have lost over 50 pounds throughout the past year and a half. Now I am trying to maintain my weight and have a healthy balance! I am also a runner but currently have an injury…which stinks.

I just want to say congrats on committing to run a marathon for the leukemia and lymphoma society! That cause is so near and dear to my heart as my little brother suffered from Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I will definitely support your cause soon! My older brother actually just decided (yesterday) to run the Boston Marathon for the SAME cause! I am so excited for the both of you and good luck in your journey! I can’t wait to read all about it. 🙂

Hey Meghann! Lunch looks so yummy!! I eat an afternoon snack usually, but I’m still hungry for din around 6. Do you find that eating early makes you hungry again at night? I usually have to have a snack before bed too!! take care girl

I used to HATE having to eat lunch at my desk to make up time 🙁 I suggest you go shopping or get a latte on your way home from the doctors to stretch out the escape from the office!

Woohooo for the bike!

Hope the doctor’s appt. goes okay. Even thought you were stuck at your desk, your lunch looks delicious. Oh, and I also just saw the picture from this morning of you in your hat – too cute Meghann! Hope things have warmed up down there!

Super cute lunch bag – I was going to make lunchbags for the girls at work this Christmas, but with my hubby sick I didn’t get around to it.

Happy dance for the new bike!
