Lush + Lazy

August 11, 2012


A gorgeous day out there – lush but not too hot!

Unfortunately / fortunately, I’ve been inside all morning just chillin’ with babe.


Around 1 O’clock, lunch beckoned. I haven’t had cravings for this much healthy food in one bowl since the year was 2011!


Lettuce, RED PEPPER, CARROTS, sea salt, honey, olive oil, avocado, egg, goat cheese, hummus and a date. A fabulous salad packed with flavor variety and nutrition!!


Food of the week: blue corn chips. They hit every craving nerve in my body!



I started reading Breastfeeding Made Simple and ordered something fun for the nursery this morning. Happy August Saturday!

Lots of superfoods in one bowl! Salads like that are the best.

Ha, a healthy food craving is ALWAYS a good feeling. Plus, that salad looks delish!

Today seems to be a perfect day for a quiet lazy morning! I’m doing the same, it’s nice to just relax and let the day just happen :)

Yum! What a beautiful salad. Reminds me I need to buy dates. I loved them stuffed with almond butter for dessert.

This salad is making my mouth water!

That lunch looks SO GOOD. I never think to have an egg over a salad like that…I’ll have to try it. And I must say, I envy your ability to portion control! You seem to only have a few of those tortilla chips at once…corn tortilla chips are one of my weaknesses and the bag would probably gone by the end of my lunch, haha.

Wowee, that salad looks amazing! I wish I had all of those ingredients on hand… I’d be making it right this minute!

That date looks like bacon! :)


9 Elisabeth August 11, 2012 at 2:20 pm

So excited – my grocery finally has those same blue corn chips :)

This might sound weird, but your grass/yard looks so great! The past month has been so hot & dry here that I almost forgot how green & healthy the grass should look — Lush indeed :)

Have a great weekend!

I just love when healthy food looks tastier than unhealthy food. That salad is such eye candy! Hope it was as delicious as it looks.

Your salad looks a little like the ones you get at Whole Foods — except the ones you usually get at Whole Foods have a plethora of ingredients :)

Hi Kath,

I apologize, because I’m sure you’ve covered this in a post or comments at some point, but I don’t remember seeing it. Your eggs always look so pretty! How do you cook them? I figured you must start out making them over-easy, and then burst the yolks at some point. But if that’s how, I’m definitely messing up the timing :)


14 KathEats August 11, 2012 at 3:57 pm

Yep, that’s just what I do. I plop them in a nonstick pan and then poke the yolk so it spreads. Then I just let it cook for about 5 minutes on medium low heat until everything is no longer runny

I adore big salads full of all kinds of goodies. Just had one myself! And I love those bowls — beautiful!

I’m out of avocado. Now I want some! lol


16 Christina August 11, 2012 at 5:05 pm

Looks delicious!! so colorful too.


17 Clare August 11, 2012 at 5:14 pm

Oh wow.. your salad looks amaaazing!


18 Averie @ Averie Cooks August 11, 2012 at 6:39 pm

Funny how pregnancy cravings can come and go and you NEVER know what’s going to hit you or when!


19 Lisa August 11, 2012 at 7:07 pm

The dates look like bacon! haha Yum!


20 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin August 12, 2012 at 6:57 am

I second what the commenter above me said – I thought the date was bacon! I’ve never thought to pair egg with dates before!


21 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More August 12, 2012 at 9:56 am

Now that is MY kind of salad!! :)


22 Lexi @ You, Me, & A World to See August 12, 2012 at 12:06 pm

Gorgeous salad! I love that one little date :)


23 MommyPage August 13, 2012 at 5:21 pm

That looks like a wonderful salad. I like how many different foods you’ve included in it- very flavorful!
