Another Shot at Fame

by Meghann on June 24, 2009

For some reason my stomach is grumbling none stop today. It’s funny I can the same level of activity and eat the same foods, but some mornings I can go until 11:00 with out a snack and others I’m breaking into my snack at 9:30.

This morning it was 9:30.


These Chocolate Bunny Grahams are courtesy of Danica and were a wonderful sweet treat.

Lunch centered around the wonderful chicken left overs from yesterday’s dinner that never had their shot of fame due to Ecto’s immense jealousy and anti-chicken post movement it started last night.


This is your time to shine tenders!


Last night I dipped the free range, organic chicken tenderloins into a bath of egg whites and then a coating of homemade breadcrumbs I made with stale rye bread. They were great last night and perfect as a salad topper today.


Also in the salad:

  • Spinach
  • Radish
  • Cucumber
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Tomato
  • Green beans
  • Okra
  • Grapes
  • Jalapenos
  • Drizzle of Annie’s Cucumber Yogurt Dressing

On the side a piece of Rye Bread.


Great lunch! 🙂


I can not believe the enthusiastic response for the Healthy Living Summit registration giveaway. Seriously Jenna, Kath, Caitlin, Tina, Heather and I are jumping up and down behind the scenes in excitement.

Also, it looks like quite a few of you are planning on attending so PLEASE remember to register early when registration officially opens tomorrow at 8:00pm EST. With this response we are expecting to sell out fast!

And before I forget…..

Love how you breaded the chicken – great way to use up stale bread!

Congrats on the response to the summit! I would go, but I think I am about 15-20 older than the rest of you guys! 😀

Mmm your salad looks yummy!!! So do those chocolate bunnies 🙂

🙁 Cant make it to the summit, darn those stupid new brakes I need! I am sure it will be a blast though 🙂

I totally hear ya! some days I can eat very little and other days I want to eat everything I see/can think of.

I wish I could come to the summit.. but I’m pretty sure it would cost me $$$ in airfare, hotel, etc. 🙁

great lunch! i love chicken tenders on salads.

I’m so excited the summit is getting so much excitement 😉 I really wish I could go.

My hubby loves breaded chicken, I may have to try it your way. As for the summit… I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to go, but Boston is REALLY far from San Diego. You guys need a West Coast Summit.

That salad looks really good, especially with the cucumber and yoghurt dressing. My hunger levels are never the same from day to day either – bodies are strange things!

7 verbalriot June 24, 2009 at 2:41 pm

rye breadcrumbs are the best! Argh, i wish I could go to the Summit, it’s going to be awesome!

8 Becca June 24, 2009 at 2:58 pm

Mmm, jalapenos in salad. I’m going to have to try that soon!

9 Danielle June 24, 2009 at 3:13 pm

Those tenders look awesome, I bet the rye bread was a twist on the usual

10 Tay June 24, 2009 at 3:14 pm

Those tenders look Tenderific!! I’m sorry they had no shining glory last night – but they shone through on your salad!

11 Meredith June 24, 2009 at 3:16 pm

I find the same thing happens to me! Sometimes my oatmeal keeps me full longer than others, and I’m not always sure what to make of it!

12 Matt June 24, 2009 at 3:28 pm

That chicken looks awesome! Sorry we missed your dinner post last night!

13 leslie June 24, 2009 at 4:52 pm

nice homemade tenders! sounds super tasty.

14 Stephanie June 24, 2009 at 5:12 pm

Now, I am really bummed to have missed the dinner post – sounds delish! I bet there was BBQ dipping sauce involved… 😉

I am MORE bummed that I cannot be in Boston Aug. 14-15. I hope that it is such a smashing success that you all want to do it again soon… 🙁

I may have to try to make some tenders for the husband, thanks for sharing!

I’m new to blogging, but that summit sounds fun! Wish I wasn’t’ in the midwestn and stuck with only 5 days of vacation left for the whole year!

16 Casey @ Double Scooped June 24, 2009 at 5:48 pm

I so agree with you on the changing hunger levels. Yesterday I didn’t even want to look at food until 7, and today I’ve been constantly hungry. So strange.

Can’t wait for the contest drawing!

ohhh yummy…faux chicken fingers! I actually can’t stomach the real thing…the whole mystery crispy stuff creeps me out…i just moved back home to the west coast and i’m still trying to adjust my eating schedule to the time difference! my family eats at 7:00 west coast time which is 10:00 p.m. east coast is IMPOSSIBLE not to pick at a million things while waiting for dinner.

YUM, I love Annie’s chocolate grahams! Annie’s also make this big mixed box of the chocolate, honey, and chocolate chip ones– the best.

19 Meg June 24, 2009 at 8:36 pm

Love the salad! Glad there has been a huge response to the summit.

Thank you for the birthday wish. See you in just over a month!

Awww Bummer I was on a plane to Las Vegas when you had this post 🙂 Glad you liked the bunnies – they are fantastic with almond butter and peanut butter 🙂
