Is it Friday yet?

by Meghann on May 27, 2009

Work today has been ok. With such an exciting weekend in the forecast, it’s honestly hard to concentrate! I just keep thinking of all the to dos I have to at home and with the blog before I take off. Busy, busy, busy!

Food always helps keep my mind on track though. 🙂

Mid-morning I snacked on a Chocolate Brownie Gnu bar.


This really is a good bar, but I think I have been over doing it on ‘brownie’ flavored bars lately. This one just was not as great as it once was. I need to remember to lay off of chocolate flavored bars for a while.

Lunch today was a combination of freezer and fridge finds.


Which all centered around this new (to me) Amy’s Burrito that has been in the freezer for a while.


Before I made a concious effort to start eating healthier, I used to be obsessed with Taco Bell’s Bean Burrito with cheese. How could you go wrong with a 79 cent ooey gooey burrito? Amy’s Burrito reminded me of that ooey gooey burrito which I had loved for so long. Now we just need to work on making this version 79 cents. 😉


Gooey cheese and beans were over flowing out of the burrito. It was really a treat to eat!

With the burrito I had the last cup of Creamy Portobello Pacific Soup with some Blue Cheese Crumbles.


The soup itself was ok, the best bites were the ones with the blue cheese and once those ran out I stopped eating the soup. The soup served a better purpose as the base for the vegetable soup I created with it last night.

To round the meal out I chopped a small apple.


As I stated above I am done with chocolate flavored bars for the moment, but genuine Dark Chocolate Bars? Pshhh… never.


I had three pieces of the Hershey’s Dark Chocolate bar that as been on my counter since San Antonio. It was screaming ‘Eat Me’ today.

Now I just have to make it through the rest of the today and then tomorrow and I am free for 4 days! Yay!

I don’t see any clothes on your coffee table. Does that mean you put them all away like a good Meghann should?? 😉

You do such a good job of not wasting food! You are definitely my inspiration to use up everything I have! (Also, I am a poor grad student!! haha)

3 megan May 27, 2009 at 12:31 pm

you have such varied meals! I totally run out of time and imagination and my lunches are sometimes quite sad and boring. thanks for the inspiration 🙂

Weird! I had an amy’s burrito and an apple for lunch too! I had the cheddar cheese one though.. but it was delicious. I highly recommend them 🙂

i still haven’t tried those Amy’s burritos, but they always look great.

Special Dark is one of my FAVORITES! Yes, this week is going by WAY too slowly 😉

OMG, I use to LOVE LOVE LOVE Taco Bell’s Gordita’s! I don’t think it’s any coincidence that in Spanish Gordita means “little fat girl”. Very happy to have laid off the Taco Bell long ago myself!

Good luck this weekend in San Diego! You’re going to do wonderfully and i’m so excited that you’ll be able to run with Bobbi!! If you have any half marathon prep tips i’m always interested as a bunch of us have one on Saturday here in NYC!

9 Bec May 27, 2009 at 1:17 pm

That sucks that the soup was not so tasty but at least you had a yummy burrito right?

10 Sarah (from See Sarah Eat) May 27, 2009 at 1:22 pm

I hear you on the 79 cent burritos, those used to be a staple of mine as well, yikes 😉 I wish Amy’s was 79 cents!!

11 Pearl May 27, 2009 at 1:26 pm

almost done!

12 HelpMeghanRun May 27, 2009 at 1:28 pm

Mmm…I have never tried one of those burritos, I think I need to create one on my own. 🙂 You’ll be in San Diego before you know it!

13 strivingforbalance May 27, 2009 at 1:29 pm

Nothing beats a chocolate bar lol!

love your flower plate!

14 runeatrepeat May 27, 2009 at 1:32 pm

I have to work until Friday, but then I get a week off! I’m so excited 🙂

15 The Novice Berker May 27, 2009 at 1:35 pm

Oohhh, the burrito looks GOOD. I’m such a sucker for cheap Taco Bell burritos and tacos. Reminds me of the good ol’ days. 😛 I totally agree though; no way Amy’s burritos are going to be 79 cents anytime soon (I WISH). Haha!

16 Jenn@slim-shoppin May 27, 2009 at 1:37 pm

I love Amy’s burritos, because I love the spiciness of them, but yes, I wish they were less expensive too!

17 Jenny May 27, 2009 at 1:41 pm

those Amy’s burritos are my favorite – i also really love the non-dairy one! but you are absolutely right – they do major damage to my wallet!

18 Melissa S. May 27, 2009 at 1:47 pm

love the after lunch chocolate…i totally ate chocolate chips out of the bag when i was baking earlier. hehee!

19 Emily May 27, 2009 at 2:02 pm

it’s so great that you’re able to go home for lunch!

i’ve actually never tried any Amy’s products (i don’t think?). i know she makes plenty of vegan products, right? might be good things to have on hand for quick meals.

20 Leah May 27, 2009 at 2:03 pm

Great lunch! Love the dark choc!

21 Matt May 27, 2009 at 2:05 pm

Mmm Mexican!

22 theangrydieter May 27, 2009 at 2:07 pm

Ooo….I love that flavor of Amy’s Burrito. I think it is my favorite kind!!!

23 Marissa May 27, 2009 at 2:29 pm

I love Amy’s burritos! I saw a teryaki wrap at whole foods the other day that I want to try

24 Sara May 27, 2009 at 2:51 pm

Back in college, I used to LOVE Taco Bell’s bean and cheese burritos! Amy’s Burrito looks delicious.,

25 Niki May 27, 2009 at 3:12 pm

Love Amy’s Burritos!!

26 meghan May 27, 2009 at 3:22 pm

If you like the amy’s burritos you should try the cedarlanes ones as well…sooo yummy!!

27 burpexcuzme May 27, 2009 at 3:34 pm

putting blue cheese on top of that soup is a GENIUS idea! Now I’ve got a new obsession on putting some kind of strong cheese on top of my soups!

28 glidingcalm May 27, 2009 at 3:43 pm

burrito and an apple = such a yummy lunch!

29 Nicole May 27, 2009 at 3:51 pm

Mmmm, Amy’s burritos are so tasty!

30 peacelovepb May 27, 2009 at 3:55 pm

im dying to find that burrito! sounds amazing!

31 Christina May 27, 2009 at 4:03 pm

On par with taco bell? Yum! Amy’s burritos are going on my shopping list 🙂

32 Quinn May 27, 2009 at 4:13 pm

I agree – I LOVE Amy’s but they are so darn $$$. The best my grocery does is 2 for $5.

33 luckytastebuds May 27, 2009 at 4:17 pm

ahhh what lovely fridge finds!! I totally agree with you on that flavor of the Gnu bar!!! I like the banana walnut flavor best i thinK! 😛

34 ksgoodeats May 27, 2009 at 5:07 pm

Oh Taco Hell! I made many trips there during HS! I’ll have to try that Amy’s for myself – it sounds great!

35 Melissa May 27, 2009 at 5:43 pm

you were so right about j&K+8. I was a mess! My heart was breaking!

I haven’t watched why they run yet, but I sent it to a few of my fellow tnt friends,and one told me that I better stock up on puffs.

36 bhealthier May 28, 2009 at 8:53 am

i totally agree on the chocolate GNU bar- I loved the other samples they sent me like the banana walnut and esp. the orange cranberry but the chocolate one was gross- i would have rather eaten a hershey bar!

so exciting that your race is almost here! good luck!

37 Chemical November 20, 2009 at 1:09 pm

OMG TACO BELL BEAN BURRITOS (no cheese)! i’m getting some later! yummy! I’m about to eat an Amy’s non-dairy burrito now, but taco bell is just so much better.. even though its probably alot unhealthier 🙁
