Orange Ya Glad It’s Lunchtime?

March 31, 2010

I’m about to head into a lunch meeting about blogging and social media possibilities for my office. Thank goodness for prepared-in-advance lunch posts!!!

Today’s fruit + vegetable feast….

The Lunchbox

Leftover tempeh orange stir-fry.

Super-easy-vegeatble-based lunch #2 = dinner leftovers.

We ran out of rice, but this is veggies + tempeh + orange sauce

Orange to go with orange!

Dr. Krackerrrrrrrrrrrrssss!!

Sunflower Cheddar. I <3 the cheddar flavors the most. Although second to Cherry Semolina,  my new fav!

After lunch I’m walking over to the hospital (about half a mile away) for the afternoon and then walkign back when the workday’s over. Another beautiful day here in Charlotte so gotta take advantage! This is the most beautiful spring we’ve had. I think because last year there was some bad frost that killed all the trees? The forecast high for this weekend: 86*!!!!!!!!!! Crazy. I love warm weather.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

We are having gorgeous weather as well. 77* and sunny. This morning the forecast said “Warm and abundantly sunny” which couldn’t be more perfect in my book :D

I think its truly amazing that so many people eat things like lasagna or pizza and consider them “vegetable servings”… ridiculous!

I was just at Earth Fare eyeing Dr. Crackers debating whether they were worth the $6. I’m guessing that’s a yes? :)

I’m hoping and praying for a beautiful spring! It’s been a very rainy one but maybe that’s just b/c it is going to be so sunny and green come April! A girl can dream, right? :)

Hey Kath! (or anyone else who wants to chime in) My husband and I are traveling to Asheville, NC this weekend. I know you have been there several times, so I was wondering what restaurants you would recommend. Thanks!!

Reply

35 Kath March 31, 2010 at 4:41 pm

Go to The Laughing Seed for lunch! It’s my favorite in Asheville.

Rosetta’s Kitchen doesn’t have great ambiance, but the food is awesome. PB Tofu!!

Also love Tupelo Honey Cafe for dinner.

And Tressa’s for late night drinks + music.

I’ve tried oranges around the world and Florida and Cali have THE BEST. Australian oranges, while local, were absolutely abysmal. :/

Enjoy you’re walk! I’m jealous…It’s been a torrential downpour in Boston for almost 2 days!

I had the most amazing orange today too! Didnt quite match my lunch as well as yours but I enjoyed every bite!

I love Dr Krackers, and the cherry ones are one of my faves too. I love the contrast of the chewy cherries and the crunchy crackers. Yum! :D

Looks like you’re having G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S weather!! Jealous!

44 Keri March 31, 2010 at 4:41 pm

Your lunch looks so refreshing and delicious, not to mention I desperate want to try those Dr. Krackers now!!! And naturally I love your post title…….I just took about 5 oranges from my dining hall earlier today! =D

That would be interesting to hear more about the sodium research you are doing. I can’t believe it’s going to be 86 this weekend. I hope you are planning lots of activities.
