Another Packed Lunch

by Meghann on February 26, 2010

This is the third day this week I’ve had to eat my lunch at my desk. I think that’s a record for me.


I’m trying to get out of town early to avoid some the lovely Orlando/Tampa traffic, so working through lunch was my best option. 🙂


I had quite a few veggies that were begging to be consumed this morning, so I chopped up what I could and made a veggie/ hummus salad creation of sorts.


  • Zucchini
  • Yellow Squash
  • Mushrooms
  • Tomato
  • Apple
  • BBQ Tempeh
  • Hummus


I believe this was also the third time I’ve gone with the ‘put it all in a bowl and hope it works’ technique. A girl’s gotta do, what a girl’s gotta do, right? 😉


To go with my masterpiece I had a small plate of left overs from the office party yesterday.


There was tons of cake left too, but I opted to enjoy the animal crackers I had brought instead. 🙂


Bubbles to quench my thirst


That was one filling meal! I’m stuffed. 🙂


Earlier this morning I had a snack of dried kiwi (courtesy of Oh Nuts!), cashews, and chocolate power berries.


In a couple of hours I will officially be on my way to Tampa to pick up my bib and packet for Gasparilla!!! Yay!!!

Best of luck in the Michelob Challenge…you’ll no doubt ROCK it!

23 Katie February 26, 2010 at 3:22 pm

Good luck this weekend…I know you’ll rock it! Are you doing all the races alone? I know you said that you might have a friend that you would be pacing in the marathon but I don’t remember if you ever told us who…

24 kirsten February 26, 2010 at 3:55 pm

good luck meghann, I can’t wait to read about it!

25 Tamera February 26, 2010 at 4:00 pm

i’ve been reading your blog for quite some time now and you are SO STRICT with your eating! Why don’t you ever cheat? You are trianing for a marathon! It’s okay to live a little. I know you had a peicce of cake yesterday, but then you didn’t even have real dessert. And why didn’t you eat the chocolates that derek got you for vday? Even when you do have dessert, you have a miniscule amount. It’s bizzare to me.

26 christina cadden February 26, 2010 at 4:03 pm

Looks like a great lunch and snack!

27 gina (fitnessista) February 26, 2010 at 4:13 pm

good luck this weekend, you crazy girl! have fun 🙂

28 Runeatrepeat February 26, 2010 at 4:17 pm

I’ve seen those Fit & Fresh containers at super markets too – namely Giant in MD 🙂 saves on shipping!

29 missyrayn February 26, 2010 at 4:19 pm

Hope it works sometimes makes the best salads. That’s what I do for my summer salads. Usually there is leftovers involved. 🙂

30 Anna February 26, 2010 at 4:29 pm

Yum!! What a great mix of flavors and fun stuff!

31 Can You Stay for Dinner February 26, 2010 at 4:48 pm

Looks like a great variety-filled lunch! Good luck with your prep for Gasparilla!! So excited for you!

32 Catherine February 26, 2010 at 5:03 pm

Can’t believe Gasparilla has already come! Looks like you’re fueling up well and we all know you’re ready so have fun & good luck!

Were the dried kiwis sweetened by the way? I’ve never had dried kiwis, so I’m just curious as to how they would taste.

Cute Vera lunch bag!

34 copywriterfele February 26, 2010 at 5:10 pm

Is that a Vera Bradley lunch bag?
I’m from Fort Wayne, where the company is located.
Are you a big fan of them?

35 Heather February 26, 2010 at 5:36 pm

Well eating at your desk is no fun, but at least you have the cutest lunch bag ever!! 🙂

36 Gabriela (froyolover) February 26, 2010 at 6:06 pm

Have a great weekend!

Dried kiwi is on my list of things to acquire – I get hungry every time I see it on your blog!

38 Rachel February 26, 2010 at 6:48 pm

I really want try dried kiwi. I’d never heard about i. Before seeing it on your blog, but it seems like you eat it all the time. Good luck 🙂

44 musingsofthegranolagirl February 26, 2010 at 9:22 pm

That veggie salad looks tasty! Cute lunchbox 🙂

45 jessica February 26, 2010 at 10:21 pm

When you signed up for the race, you mentioned you were running just to help pace another girl who was thinking of signing up too.. I am assuming she decided not to sign up? Are you now running for time?

46 Emilyeatsclean February 27, 2010 at 1:17 am

I found dried kiwi tonight at the Whole Foods in Clearwater, FL…..I was so excited!!! Sooo sad that we don’t have a Whole Foods where I live in TN!
