Today’s Spread:

I brought a bowl of spinach, half a lemon and a garbanzo bean salad made with lemon juice (the other half), feta, and Sriratcha (we just bought some more of this – it has been way too long!)

IMG_2691 (800x600)

I squirted the lemon on the spinach and dumped the beans on the salad for a wonderful entree. Baby spinach is so easy to stuff into a lunch box for an instant salad.

I used Kelsey for a photography table :mrgreen:

I also packed some green grapes

And a Peach Chobani with a few tbsp AgavePlus granola

I’ll be munching on this Nature’s Path FlaxPlus Pumpkin Bar during Foodservice! It came in my Yoga Jam bag, and I can’t wait to try it.

Soup Spotting!

The Nutty Vanilla Sweet Potato + Kale Soup made yet another appearance at Lola Runs!

Great looking salad! Good luck with the studying :)


5 Cheryl March 9, 2009 at 12:53 pm

Hey Kath, that sunshine looks great, but I hope you used some sunscreen today. Can’t believe after that burn yesterday, you are back out there today…. really bad for your skin. You eat so healthy, hope you are taking care of your skin.

Otherwise, lunch looks great and good luck on the upcoming tests.


6 Juli March 9, 2009 at 12:54 pm

That post was a picture of delicious: sunshine, park, salad, greek yogurt, fruit, and an energy bar! Plus, silliness!

Enjoy your day!


7 Kath March 9, 2009 at 12:57 pm

Cheryl ,
I always wear sunscreen – except yesterday! Today I’m wearing long pants and we moved into the shade right after eating.



8 tami March 9, 2009 at 12:57 pm

after having BEAUTIFUL weather here Saturday and most of Sunday, it’s snowing! your green grass makes me jealous.


9 michelle March 9, 2009 at 12:59 pm

I just had that pumpkin flax bar for breakfast for the first time. I thought it was great!


10 haya March 9, 2009 at 1:04 pm

i am CRAZY jealous of your amazing weather and beautiful picnics. our snow finally mostly melted (though it did wet snow a bit more this morn) and it was 17ºC last week (that like 64 or something) but the ground was all wet and mucky. no lying on the grass (which is still dead-ish) in shorts :(
soon. soon. i just have to be patient, i guess.

i guess it’s good that you are exposing your body to a little sun before your equatorial adventure! you wouldn’t want to burn while you’re away.


11 VeggieGirl March 9, 2009 at 1:12 pm

HAHA!! So fun 😀

Love that garbanzo bean salad!!


12 haya March 9, 2009 at 1:14 pm

did you have wireless while you were out there? i actually went to the park to write an essay once to get away from the internet and somehow was able to pick up a signal from somewhere. there’s no escaping!


13 Katie March 9, 2009 at 1:14 pm

Oh I am soooooooooo ridiculously jealous of the beuatiful weather! What I would give to lay on a gorgeous lawn in the warm sun. ……. love it.


14 Courtney (The Hungry Yogini) March 9, 2009 at 1:15 pm

Hahaha i love the pictures!! Enjoy your day!


15 Marisa (trim the fat) March 9, 2009 at 1:15 pm

16 Natalie March 9, 2009 at 1:23 pm

17 JENNA March 9, 2009 at 1:26 pm

18 Jenn (eating bender) March 9, 2009 at 1:27 pm

Haha, you gorgeous and silly girls :) Glad you’re soaking up that sun – wish I could say the same, lol.

Great chickpea salad! I love how easy it is to make something look so delicious!


19 Michelle March 9, 2009 at 1:29 pm

The pumpkin flax granola bar is my favorite. I like the Apricot/coconut too. It’s the same brand.


20 Diana March 9, 2009 at 1:30 pm

21 Shelby March 9, 2009 at 1:31 pm

25 Bear March 9, 2009 at 1:54 pm

how do you guys count stationary bike/spinning calories burned vs. recreational biking calories burned?


26 Kailey (SnackFace) March 9, 2009 at 1:58 pm

Haha these pics are great! That’s a perfect way to study! The lunch looks awesome, and the chickpea salad sounds so simple and delicious! Good luck with the rest of the afternoon!


27 Sarah (Tales of Expansion) March 9, 2009 at 2:00 pm

30 Kara March 9, 2009 at 2:07 pm

Mmm salad looks fab! Enjoy the nice weather!


31 Hallie March 9, 2009 at 2:09 pm

I remember nice days in college when everyone would lay out on the lawn to study. In upstate New York, those days are few and far between! It’s funny because I think in San Diego we take for granted the sunny days sometimes.


32 Missy (Missy Maintains) March 9, 2009 at 2:13 pm

You are so lucky it is nice and sunny! Yucky rain here in NY! Such fun pictures!


33 Sarah March 9, 2009 at 2:13 pm

You two are hilarious! Good luck with the studying ; )


34 Jordan (Flows Down Yellow) March 9, 2009 at 2:17 pm

That looks so fun! The weather this weekend was amazing even in NYC! Good luck on your exams!


35 lori March 9, 2009 at 2:27 pm


I saw a black mazda (2door) with a number plate that read “KANZI” on my way home today. Ummm…. I wonder who is driving it!!!


36 Leah March 9, 2009 at 2:32 pm

Great photos!!!

But seriously, you need to stop with the nice sunlight… it’s just NOT FAIR! 😛

Good luck on the studying.


37 Sarah (lovINmytummy) March 9, 2009 at 2:36 pm

You gals are hilarious and serious procrastinators.


38 Foodie (Fab and Delicious Food) March 9, 2009 at 2:40 pm

Love the food!

Good luck studying!


39 Emily March 9, 2009 at 3:03 pm

haha, love the photos…and the great weather! I’m hoping to leave school as soon as possible to get out and enjoy it while it lasts!


40 rhodeygirl March 9, 2009 at 3:29 pm

great pic!

i have a case of the mondays too.


41 Nicole March 9, 2009 at 3:33 pm

Haha, I love the last picture. It’s too cute!


42 Sharon March 9, 2009 at 3:36 pm

Jealous of the gorgeous weather!


43 Michelle March 9, 2009 at 3:38 pm

WOOOW how gorgeous is your “study area”?!?!??!! You betcha I’m jealous. How does one concentrate in such glorious weather with such good lookin’ food around?!??! hahaha

I know when i study, i gotta be:
1) AWAY from temptation, the main one being snacks in my pantry
2) no glorious weather – or I will want to play!

Maybe you should bring a frisbee next time and toss it around during your study break!!! It’ll help rejuvenate your brain cells! I promise!


44 Mel March 9, 2009 at 3:52 pm

I would love to study there! Have a fun afternoon!


45 Bec March 9, 2009 at 4:13 pm

OMG, I am so jealous of your picnic/outside study parties! The food looks really yummy too :)


46 laci March 9, 2009 at 4:15 pm

BEAUTIFUL weather!!! 😀 Ahh, I love planning to multi-task (eat+work) but it always turns out I eat first, then trudge through boring schoolwork! haha 😉


47 Lauren March 9, 2009 at 5:05 pm

Hahaha great pics! Looks like a gorgeous day :)

I love your idea for the garbanzo beans/feta/spinach salad… I might need to steal that combo idea.


48 K March 9, 2009 at 5:18 pm

Haha!! Cute study pic! That’s how I feel with my exams! I love that chickpea/spin combo!


49 Lori March 9, 2009 at 5:31 pm

I am so jealous of that weather! We had snow today!!


50 KLM March 9, 2009 at 6:29 pm
51 lainb March 9, 2009 at 7:21 pm

Was a side of sunscreen packed with the picnic? 😉 Looks like a lovely place to study!


52 Kath March 9, 2009 at 7:29 pm

lori ,
NO WAY!!!! It wasn’t Matt, who drives a silver car, but I’d love to meet the driver!



53 Emily W. March 9, 2009 at 7:40 pm

OMG! How much fun! lol Too funny!


54 Anna Keller March 9, 2009 at 8:10 pm

I’m so envious that you can have picnics in March!


55 Caroline March 10, 2009 at 12:40 am

What a great way to study–it seems like it would be a little less painful to hit the books in the sunshine:)
