Draining Hourglass

April 30, 2009

Time is closing in on me!!

I had a noon phone call followed by an errand uptown and just finished lunch!! The granola breakfast actually held me over beautifully – I didn’t start getting hungry until around 1pm – 4 hours later. And it was only light hunger, so I could have gone another hour (and really did before I had my “real” lunch).

Kelsey  stopped by around 1 and before I knew it my chance to have lunch was gone, so I chose a snack to have on my drive up and back. (This errand was a beauty thing that I probably shouldn’t say to be unladylike – nothing major).

So my snack was a big apple and some nuts: cranberry pecans and salty peanuts. They held me over perfectly until I could have a 3pm lunch.

When I got home I was getting hungry again so I made a sandwich: Navy Bean Dip (too much raw garlic ), Goat Cheese + Spinach with some pimentos on a Dakota bun.

Half a cup of Stonyfield yogurt with 1 heaping tbsp PB2 and some AgavePlus granola. I am lovin’ PB2 in yogurt!

And a carrot

Which needed a dip into the Barney Butter jar!

Heh heh … love the fist. : )

Ladylike, schmadylike – being pretty is dirty work!

PB2 in yogurt sounds quite tasty. Now I just have to see if I can find it …


4 Kristen April 30, 2009 at 2:54 pm

It’s so funny the difference camera angles can make. For example–the bowl with a half-cup of yogurt looks like the size of one of my huge breakfast cereal bowls! Haha =)

Good luck on your studies!

Your lunch looked great. I’ve never tried carrot/pb combo! That sounds pretty good!

8 Sharon April 30, 2009 at 3:23 pm

Good luck!


9 megan April 30, 2009 at 3:23 pm

do you mix pb2 with water first or just stir it right in the yogurt?


10 Danielle April 30, 2009 at 3:25 pm

Good luck with studying, your so close to being done!
Your food looks fantastic!

It’s tough work to be a girl, hope the errand was an enjoyable one and not a waxing type one.


12 Kailey (SnackFace) April 30, 2009 at 3:40 pm

My day is escaping me, too! I’m vowing never to sleep in again!

Hmm that girly task sounds like it may have been painful. I’m just sayin’, I don’t like having to wax my upper lip. Therefore it goes wild sometimes. I hope that’s not what you were doing. haha

I love the lunch in parts! My fave thing to do…just eat here and there all day.

Good luck with the studying, Kath!


13 Brooke April 30, 2009 at 3:41 pm

When you put the PB2 in the yogurt do you put it in once it has been prepared with water? Or do you just add the powder?


14 Run Sarah April 30, 2009 at 3:56 pm

What an awesome sandwich combo! Carrots always taste better with PB or AB!


15 Heather April 30, 2009 at 3:58 pm

Good luck studying! Looks like you fueled yourself up with some delicious eats to keep you going 😉 ! I’ve gotta try my PB2 in yogurt. I haven’t had a chance yet, but I can’t wait to play around with it.


16 Bec April 30, 2009 at 4:02 pm

17 Kelly L. April 30, 2009 at 4:04 pm

18 WEEKLY BITE April 30, 2009 at 4:06 pm

Good luck on BioChem tomorrow :)

27 Sarah April 30, 2009 at 5:46 pm

I never thought about adding pb2 to my yogurt. I may have to try that, I have some just sitting in my pantry than needs to be used.


28 ari April 30, 2009 at 6:12 pm

29 Stephanie April 30, 2009 at 6:23 pm

What is a Dakota Bun and where do I find them? I haven’t seen them in my regular grocery store.

Good luck on your Biochem exam. I remember when I had to take that class…I don’t envy you! :)


30 Kath April 30, 2009 at 6:45 pm

Ha! You guys were right with your guesses 😉

megan + Brooke ,
Yup – just stir it right into the yogurt.

Michelle ,
Thanks!! That’s the whole goal of this blog!!

Stephanie ,
They are made by Great Harvest Bread Co. where Matt works.
