Thank You Larabar

by Meghann on October 21, 2010

I have to start out by saying this… Thank You Larabar for producing mini versions of your new Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie flavor and handing them out at the Chicago Marathon Expo. And Thank You for looking the way when I took two huge handfuls from the container. ;)  They really do make the perfect morning snacks. 🙂


The morning got away from me. I’m working hard to make sure I can get out of here on time for my audition this afternoon. p.s. thanks for all the help – you guys are great! 🙂

Lunch came from my lunch bag

And it went from this


to this


In 5 minutes or less. 😉

Totally forgot to take a photo of just the box (it is in the group shot up above) but this was a Tandoor Chef Palak Paneer Frozen Meal I had received  as a free sample a couple of months ago.


I’ll admit it’s not pretty, but it was a a tasty easy meal. I especially liked the cheese.

It needed something for dipping purposes. I didn’t have any Naan, but I did have pita. 🙂



Isn’t this re-usable bag the cutest?


Tami was kind enough to send me a few different styles and colors months ago, but they got lost in the shuffle that is my apartment. I found the envelope full of them this morning and thought it was the perfect vehicle to transport my dessert in.


Bonus: all these need is a quick spin in the dishwasher and they’re good as new after each use. 🙂


The Gooey Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar was much better today than it was yesterday. Today’s piece has a huge glob of peanut butter on it and I think that helped. It was still thin, flaky and fell apart when I picked it up, but at least it tasted good.

Alright peeps, I have an audition to catch – wish me luck!

Question: Have you ever auditioned for a reality tv show before? Sent in a video? Applied?

Do share!

I love the frozen Indian meals–and the boxed ones from Trader Joe’s. They’re so tasty! I eat mine with chopped spinach a lot!

Good luck with the audition! I’m sure you’ll be great. I’ve never auditioned for a reality TV show but I think it would be a cool experience. Can’t wait to hear how it goes!

Oh my gosh, I found that flavor at Walmart last night & fell in love. They are my FAVE thus far! Now I need to get my hands on some Choc. Chip Cookie Dough ones.


6 Jo @ JAGS Fitness Blog October 21, 2010 at 2:28 pm

Good luck with your audition 🙂

7 Mariana October 21, 2010 at 2:31 pm

Good luck with you audition! I’ve never auditioned either, but I want to audition for The Amazing Race Latin America

8 Kiran October 21, 2010 at 2:31 pm

BTW, I am having a Naturally Nutty nut butter giveaway on my blog.

I <3 your Vera lunch bag! I think the lunch bag might be one of the ONLY Vera pieces I don't already own. 🙂

I have never auditioned for a reality show – I wouldn't even consider it! (I had a nightmare once about being on Project Runway. I can't sew.)

12 Kjirsten- Balanced Healthy Life October 21, 2010 at 2:49 pm

Good Luck! I hope you rock the audition!

13 Caitlin October 21, 2010 at 2:53 pm

I auditioned for The Real World in college but Kristien said if I went on it, he would broke up with me (which makes perfect sense). LOL

I enjoyed the Lara Coconut Cream Pie sample I picked up at my half marathon expo. I have a carrot cake one too that I have not yet tried. Can you buy them in the tiny size??

Indian food never looks pretty, but it’s always delicious!

Palak Paneer is one of my favourite Indian dishes. Next to Chana Masala ( ) of course.

Good luck with the interview.

Haha..yes! I applied to be one of the girls on the Bachelor back in 2002. I made it to the Finals and then chickened out because I really only did it as a joke 😉

I used to be addicted to this awesome palak paneer at a hole-in-the-wall place near my work, but they tragically closed – I didn’t even get to say good-bye or ask if the chef was going to cook anywhere else. It was really salty and yummy and I miss it so. That photo just brought me back some seriously tasty memories.

good luck…have fun! I once attempted to audition for Double Dare (yes, this was in 1989), but the line of cars at the TV studio was so long one hour before the auditions began that they had already given away all of the audition slots. At least I had a good reason for going late to school that morning.

26 Julie (A Case of the Runs) October 21, 2010 at 4:55 pm

Ha ha about it not looking pretty — I eat Spinach Dal sometimes for lunch, and it’s def not a looker but really yummy!

I have never auditioned for a reality show before, but I’ve been to plenty of auditions. I am studying musical theatre in college right now so I’ve had my fair share of auditions. They are always nerve wracking!

I’m sure your audition went GREAT!

good luck!! am i the only one who doesnt really like larabars? i was so excited to try them after all the blogs talk about them but i think they are pretty weird tasting….oh well!

34 Elizabeth October 21, 2010 at 7:12 pm

I tried for American Idol season 2. I ddn’t know that there were two rounds of producers before you even saw the judges. I made it past the first round with the producers and had to signa contract to wear the same thing at every audition. That way they can cut the clips and make it look like you had a lot of time in front of the judges. Crazy huh? Wish I could have gotten further, but it’s still one of my best memories from high school.

35 Emily @ Emilyeatsclean October 21, 2010 at 7:24 pm

Good luck with your audition!! Sounds like a a cool opportunity. I haven’t seen those mini larabars in the newer flavors…..I’ll have to keep my eyes open for them. Cute reuseable bag too! 🙂

I looove those baby Larabars. My boss has gotten addicted, too and now requests that I bring them back for her from expos!

I auditioned for Deal or No Deal about 4 years ago and got called back for a 2nd audition! (My maiden name was Deal so it was kind of funny) I don’t think I was outgoing and crazy enough to be on the show but it was fun to audition!

Wish those mini larabars were sold in stores. I always have to break mine into 1/3’s as a mid morning snack.

I love that you blog about your work lunches! My new favorite lunch to make at work is homemade soup. I use the basic trader joe’s broths and frozen veggies that I leave in the freezer at work- so delicious!

i am glad you are using those little bags, my kids bring them to school every day and everyone asks about them, it’s so much better than throwing plastic bags away every day.
