Intermittent sunshine here today, but a lovely one indeed. I’m really enjoying reading all of the BERF comments on names today!! Thanks to the 98% of you who have been nice : ) You guys have some awesome ideas!

I went grocery shopping this morning, which was bad because I wasn’t in a rush and bought too many want items. But a lot of needs too! Such as more popsicles Winking smile

FYI, yay for Instagram on Android! Connect with me as @katheats if you want. I’m still learning how to figure out the whole following thing, but I love the app!

I did some nibbling off my groceries as I put them away (almond here, melted ice cream top there) so I was in a snacking mood for lunch.

Newly purchased goat cheese was a lunch requirement – atop of greens with last week’s brown avocado

One of those wants – Route 11 chips! Karen got me hooked on our IKEA trip last week. Or maybe it’s a craving phase. Obsessed!

I love when I have tons of new foods to taste after the grocery store! Haha I’m so bad about digging into things while I’m putting it all away – especially grapes! They never last long…

Love the instagram pics!!! Great fruit platter – I’m looking for a good one.

Random question, but – do you not refrigerate your berries? I always have and didn’t know you could leave them out!

8 KathEats April 17, 2012 at 12:56 pm

I do :) Put them in the fridge after the photo. Just wanted all the fruit in the fruit bowl for the photo

Fresh fruit tastes so good in warm weather!

I’ve been avoiding Instagram for Android… phone storage is already low! :)

I haven’t been using my Instagram app much, but your photos look so good I may have to start. Hope all goes well for you and BERF at the doctor!

Best wishes at the docs. Hope you hear only good things. Love the multi fruit photo. Must find Siggi’s. I’ve seen it somewhere but I’m not sure it was in Topeka.

Hi Kath! Always enjoyed reading your blog for a few years now! I’ve always envisioned that pregnant women ate out of control and always had junk food cravings. Thank you for challenging and proving my vision wrong! It gives me inspiration that when I’m pregnant that I can follow a nutritious diet like you have exemplified!

Lots of yummy fruits and veggies…my kinda lunch!

18 Sarah @ Fresh Living April 17, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Your lunch plate looks delicious. I just had a salad with avocado and goat cheese for lunch as well. I arrived back to London today and was surprised to see that the train station had some healthy lunch options! Great photos!

Ohhhh myyy this whole time I had NO idea android had instagram!! haha! I will for sure check it out now. :D Oh, and I agree with Wendy’s comment above me! That’s true~I was surprised by your eating too, but in a good way.

I also bought grapes and strawberries this week and have been enjoying them quite a bit!

My posts have been somewhat taken over with Instagram lately too. I was SO excited to find it finally came to Android!

22 Katie @ Creature of Habit April 17, 2012 at 2:12 pm

I just discovered Instagram a few weeks ago and spent way too much time photographing stupid things. Too many fun options ended up ruining more photos than not.

I loved the name post on BERF today so much. I have no plans for another baby and it was still awesome reading all the name comments and suggestions. FUN!

Beautiful foods! I get such satisfaction out of finishing off a pantry as well as restocking it.

I love it when my fruit & veg basket is full, I feel complete when it looks pretty lol
The food looks amazing, as always :)

I always feel so rich when my fruit bowl is overflowing. I don’t know why. It’s just so comforting.

30 Sara April 17, 2012 at 3:36 pm

I was inspired by your lunch boxes you always get at whole foods and stopped by the fresh market and created one on my own! Although they didn’t have as good as a selection as whole foods, I am now officially obsessed with tofu and can’t wait to try some of your recipes!

31 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning April 17, 2012 at 4:06 pm

You got a batch of stuff from Siggi’s?? SO JEALOUS. If you had the coconut yogurt, you have to let me know how it was. I just can’t bring myself to buy it a 200 calories for 5.3 oz of yogurt (I’d rather have a full cup of froyo for the same calories!!)

Reply

32 KathEats April 17, 2012 at 6:39 pm

I didn’t think it was double-the-calories worth it, but it was good. Worth trying on your own to see. I have 2 in my fridge – I’ll have to try again. It was on the runny side, which I didn’t like

33 Jeri April 17, 2012 at 4:10 pm

How do you determine how much you will need for the week? I’m trying to change my shopping habits because it’s really only me and my daughter. Like I see you have a few red potatoes, where I will still buy the 3-5pound bag.

34 KathEats April 17, 2012 at 6:39 pm

I do a general building-block style meal plan, which you can see in this post: http://www.katheats.com/sweating-in-my-sweater

35 Caitlin April 17, 2012 at 4:40 pm

I’ve been searching for Siggi’s high and low!!

What’s been your favorite flavor so far? And do you prefer the drinkable or regular yogurt cup?

Reply

36 KathEats April 17, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Pineapple! Although I LOVE the Orange Ginger for some reason. I think I prefer the regular cup, but I do like drinkable too – esp. in a bowl with cereal!

I had a doc appt today too! Once a week is so much better than once a month!

Just got instagram two days ago and loving it too, very fun to share bits and pieces throughout the day. Following you now!

Welcome to Instagram! Finally, my two obsessions, Instagram and katheats.com, have joined forces! What a wonderful day! I am an Insta-addict, I love using it for food photography, the effects make everything look more delicious. Next time I make something that’s KathEats inspired I’ll be sure to Instagram it and tag you! It would make my Instagram career if my favorite blogger followed me back on my new favorite social media ;) ;) @thenataliegray. Also, fellow readers, I’m always looking for new people to follow who take cool and relevant pics, comment with your insta-name and I’ll follow you!

43 KathEats April 17, 2012 at 8:37 pm

:) Fun! Do you tag people just like Twitter?

Reply

44 Natalie April 17, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Yup. Just use the @ symbol in captions and comments!

45 KathEats April 17, 2012 at 8:47 pm

Thanks! One more question for an expert: Is there any way to access it online, or do you have to use a phone?

Reply

46 Natalie April 17, 2012 at 8:53 pm

Officially, I believe you can only access it from your Android, iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. But I have heard of websites, like web.stagram.com, where you can access it online, but I’ve never tried it.

47 KathEats April 17, 2012 at 8:54 pm

Cool, thanks!

I <3 kettle cooked chips so much that I could eat them everyday–but don't :) It is all about the saltiness and crunch factor.

Popsicles are a definite must! Snacky lunches are the best…next to the very late snacky breakfast I just had :)
