Sunny Side UP

October 21, 2011

gOOd AFterNooN!!!


I’m wrapping up the digital world here and then headed down to the bakery and to run some errands soon.

Went to Body Pump this morning. I was feeling a bit weak today and went lighter on the weights. I always feel stronger on Mondays than Fridays! I am LOVING my “commute” to the gym these days. 1 mile walk through downtown. I couldn’t ask for a better path to get from house to gym!


Lunch today was a big green salad with green pepper and carrot topped with leftover beans, 2 hidden plantains, an egg and some cheese


Eggs taste best with smoked paprika!


And a flavorful yolk


See that plantain hidden in there? That was my last bite and it was awesome!



Grapes on the side! [Said to the tune of ‘pants on the ground’]



Happy Birthday Cullen!!

And Happy Weekend to the rest of you : )

Commute? I guess since you’re a HLB, going to the gym does kind of count as going to work! Haha, very cool. :)

You make some creative salads!

Yum what a great salad! good inspiration – im making one right now! love paprika on eggs.

I miss walking to the gym so much. Not only did it save on gas, but it was so fun walking through the ‘hood and people watching. That’s what I get for moving from city to suburbia!


5 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen October 21, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Yay baby Cullen! I’m in love with his name :) Happy weekend indeed!

Excellent lunch! Looks great :)

Your photos look EXTRA vibrant and beautiful today!

I’m LOVING the salad – had a hard boiled egg this morning and now I wish I had made it a sunny side up!

Glad you have your walking routes back! There’s nothing better :)

What a cute placemat – so picnicky! I love saving extra awesome bites for last. I can only imagine how great that plantain was. And every time I read your blog I get so envious of your walkable/bikeable life style. It is a major consideration for me as I consider where to job search!

Love love love egg on a salad! Happy Friday afternoon! :)


10 Maria @ Sinfully Nutritious October 21, 2011 at 12:55 pm

Looks so refreshing. I kinda had a cheating lunch, your looks healthier!

Another beautiful salad! Love the egg on top! And thanks, now I will have “Pants on the Ground” stuck in my head for a week! :)

I went to Bodypump this morning too!! Mine was at 6:00 am. I felt a bit shaky too, actually, but I think it was a combination of being very early and my latest session was somewhat recent. Feels good though! :)

I hate the taste of eggs. I know I’ve mentioned that in comments on here before. This morning I was browsing some old posts and kept coming across photos of different incarnations of French Toast. Now I want some French Toast. Interesting how that works. I think I can doctor the egg up enough so that it doesn’t taste too eggy and I’ll have to use a GF bread product. Multi-seed English muffins perhaps? We’ll see what happens over the weekend.


14 Andrea @ The Skinny Chronicles October 21, 2011 at 1:23 pm

Happy Weekend to you too! Such a lovely salad. Loving the smoked paprika tip. I am definitely trying that this weekend.


15 Angel7 October 21, 2011 at 1:24 pm

I am going to try paprika on our eggs the next time I make them.


16 Julia H. @ The Petite Spiel October 21, 2011 at 1:24 pm

I need to remember to try paprika next time I fry up an egg! I usually just season it with pepper, but it sounds like paprika is the way to go.


17 Hope @ With A Side Of Hope October 21, 2011 at 1:42 pm

I love paprika on potatoes. I bet it would taste great on a fried egg! I love that you put eggs on a salad. I’m going to have to try it. :)


18 Lindsay @ biking before bed October 21, 2011 at 1:52 pm

Loved the reference to “pants on the ground” it’s my little brothers favorite YouTube video.


19 katie @KatieDid October 21, 2011 at 2:04 pm

The colors of your lunch are just popping off the screen, love it! Happy friday :)


20 Ashley O. @ The Vegetable Life October 21, 2011 at 2:05 pm

I love cubed cheese on my salads! Nothing better than a big bite of cheese!!! I tried my first plantain last month and could not get past the fact that it looked and did not taste line a banana!


21 Yum Yucky October 21, 2011 at 2:08 pm

Paprika on eggs sound eggmazing! hahaha. I want summa those grapes, too.


22 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga October 21, 2011 at 2:21 pm

super crunchy looking grapes, smoked paprika, and those plantains…YES, that sounds great.

Enjoy your weekend, Kath!


23 Ali @ Peaches and Football October 21, 2011 at 2:26 pm

Yummy looking salad there Kath! Have a great weekend to you too. The sun is shining and you can’t beat that for a late October day!


24 Fran October 21, 2011 at 2:40 pm

Salad looks great! So cool about Baby Cullen! Have a great weekend!


25 Sweet and Savvy October 21, 2011 at 2:45 pm

Have a great weekend!:) That “commute” sounds wonderful!


26 Emily @ The Divine Carrot October 21, 2011 at 3:01 pm

Creative salad! Looks great!!


27 Christine @ Oatmeal in my Bowl October 21, 2011 at 3:07 pm

My husband and I just enjoyed a beautiful downtown walk after lunch today. It was to walk off the margaritas and big plates of Mexican food. LOL. I do wish I had the downtown to walk everyday {like I used to}. I miss that.

Yeah, to baby Cullen!


28 Christin October 21, 2011 at 3:35 pm

your eggs always turn out so perfectly! looks delicious as always :)

don’t you just love body pump? it’s my ultimate favorite gym class…I always feel so strong afterwards (and then really sore the next day lol)


29 Amanda October 21, 2011 at 3:38 pm

Is the smoked paprika a lot different from regular paprika?

Such a fun, colorful salad! The grapes look particularly good.


30 KathEats October 21, 2011 at 3:40 pm

Yes, it’s very different – the smoke adds a ton!


31 Molly @ RDexposed October 21, 2011 at 5:00 pm

It’s all about cutting into the egg and letting it run over the salad! That’s tentively on my dinner menu tonight!


32 Kim @ Eat, Live, and Blog October 21, 2011 at 5:01 pm

I love runny egg on top of salads! 😀


33 Kristin October 21, 2011 at 5:38 pm

Yum!! An egg in a salad? I need to try that one. Plus, those grapes seem so fresh. This looks like a delicious combination of healthy foods!


34 Zoe @ loseweightandgainhealth October 21, 2011 at 5:52 pm

Still not tempted by a runny egg on salad but loving the idea of smoked paprika on an egg. That would work well. Happy weekend all you Statesiders!


35 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) October 21, 2011 at 5:54 pm

Everything in the salad sounds like a winning combination! I like the cubed cheese; when it’s shredded, I swear I don’t taste it in salads!


36 Health Bee October 21, 2011 at 8:00 pm

Love your commute! I agree, eggs with paprika is delicious!


37 Jen Adair October 25, 2011 at 2:13 pm

What app did you use to take the first photo?


38 KathEats October 25, 2011 at 2:14 pm

Retro Camera for Android


39 Jen Adair October 25, 2011 at 2:44 pm

Awesome. I love it. I’ve been dying for one like Instagram on the iPhone ever since I switched to Android. Wish they would just make the switch to Android already!!
