Can already tell I’m going to LOVE it here!! It’s all fun and exciting wellness work. And a great office of enthusiastic people located at my favorite intersection in Charlotte 🙂 Also, a 15 minute commute!
Didn’t have time for a grocery store shop last night, so I pulled this lunch together from our fridge. Not bad, if I do say so myself! It has all the important pieces 🙂
The hardest to find: the veg. Leftover lemony mustard greens and a carrot. (Carrots are so easy to pack and last a while in the fridge, so they’re perfect for lunchboxes.)
The protein + dairy source: Pineapple Chobani!! A gift from Emily. I can’t find the pineapple here in Charlotte (but I did see it at multiple grocery stores on our trip to Charlottesville this weekend!!). Galaxy Granola for crunch.
An apple. From the hotel breakfast bar 🙂
And some Dr. Kracker Seeded Spelts for a bit more carbohydrate energy.
Don’t forget your flatware!
I’ll be digging into this lunch in just a few minutes. Ahhh the advantages of taking the photos while packing my lunch!
I totally did a grazing lunch today too. Mine included carrots, celery, nan, hummus, dried cranberries and some marinated feta. I just love carrots lately, don’t you?

Tasty loooking lunch! Do you grow your own carrots? They look all natural and good (not like some of the supermarket ones that are so radioactive and ‘perfect’ looking!)
Glad you’re enjoying your day 🙂
Nope! They are from Harris Teeter
Jessica @ How Sweet says
That is great that you already have a good feeling about the rotation! Will make it that much more enjoyable. 🙂
Estela @ Weekly Bite says
I dying to try pineapple chobani!! I can’t find it anywhere!
I’m so glad you have an exciting rotation! Wellness is so much fun!
Allison (Eat Clean Live Green) says
Short commutes are wonderful! Sometimes grazing/pulled together lunches are the best
Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope says
I love the snacky lunch! So fun! And I’m so glad to hear that you’re enjoying the rotation. You have definitely found your calling Kath.
Lauren @ Eater not a runner says
I still haven’t tried the pineapple chobani….everyone raves about it!
Glad you are enjoying your new rotation 🙂
How great your commute is only 15 minutes. Here in LA that will get me about 1 mile, maybe 2 if I’m lucky!
Mastering Public Health says
Lots of produce, there! I’m excited for summer stone fruits… I actually managed to find organic (though imported) plums and peaches recently, so I’ll take that as a sign that the warmer months are coming. 🙂
shannon (the daily balance) says
yay for short commutes! think of all the extra time you’ll have! 😉

Jessica @ The Process of Healing says
The pineapple Chobani is probably my favorite Greek Yogurt flavor ever. SO amazing! Your lunch looks so colorful!
so glad you have an awesome rotation ahead of ya! i just got those dr krackers in the mail, can’t wait to try em!
Christie @ Honoring Health says
That is a pretty good lunch given you need to shop!
Glad you are enjoying the rotation!
I loooove pineapple chobs! They don’t sell it around me either, so I rely on winning Spoons on Twitter 🙂
Heather (Heather's Dish) says
yum! that sounds like the most amazing lunch EVAH. i’d love to find the pineapple chobani here, but can’t seem to locate it! 🙁 hope you have a great day! i can’t wait to hear more about this rotation!
Lunch looks so good! I have wanted to try the pineapple forever…but I have so much Chobs that I need to get through that buying new stuff is nottttt a good choice right now. 🙂
Mara @ What's For Dinner? says
So glad you’re going to enjoy this rotation! It seems like its going to be exactly what you’ve been in school for!
Yum! That lunch looks so light and fresh. I’ve never seen the pineapple Chobani!
I have a rather odd question about kabocha squash. It’s my new favorite thing. I cut it (well my husband does!) into cubes and roast them. Perfect for my lunch and so delicious!
I know the skin is edible and I do eat it (and I know that you usually eat the skin on most veggies.)….but there are these weird ‘barnacle’ type of bumps/growths on the skin. Do you know what I’m talking about? They don’t come off after when I wash the squash. Is it safe to eat these?
I hope so, because I’m sure I’ve ingested some already!
I know what you’re talking about and I eat them!?
Jenn (www. j3nn.net ) says
I”ve only had pineapple Chobani once, but it’s awesome! I actually used it for overnight oats. Wonderful. 😀
[email protected] says
Pineapple Chobani is excellent! My favorite flavors are the pineapple and the blueberry and they are great combined! I wish I liked raw carrots because they are so easy, but I just don’t like them.
i always buys 10 lb bags of carrots at costco because they seem to never go bad and die on me like everything else in the fridge!
Food Makes Fun Fuel says
Yum! Your portable lunch looks like something I need for class
I have forgotten the flatware so many times! haha. Glad to see you are using that instead of the plastic. 😉
Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) says
I love those kinds of lunches! They always get you to use different things to get all your nutrients! So fun. Glad you like this rotation…makes for good times!
I LOVE that you eat whole carrots (not baby). Baby carrots bother my stomach (my Dad says they are covered in mold BLECK). Also very interesting you are enjoying your office rotation. As a future RD I’m actually dreading the office rotation. I’ll have to look at it in a new light
Kristin @ Iowa Girl Eats says
What a well rounded lunch! I am definitely in love with that pineapple Chobani flavor too – probably the best flavor I’ve tried! Enjoy the rest of your afternoon!
I do like that pineapple yogurt, but I think I prefer the pomegranate one 🙂 So glad the rotation is going well!
So glad that you’re liking the new job! It sounds like fun!
lynn (The Actors Diet) says
i love a little bit of everything for lunch! easy to pack and go…
Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] says
I agree – carrots are the best for on-the-go lunches. I often pack them in my school lunches. I’m actually munching on carrot & cuc sticks right now.
Rachel- No Preservatives Added says
We went on a picnic yesterday and took a ‘snacky’ lunch. Definately the way to go!
Kati @ Living Well says
Dangit. I bought baby carrots! Now to remember to pack them in lunches :>
Lisa @bakebikeblog says
What a great looking lunch! And glad to hear the rotation is sounding fun 🙂
Did you like the pineapple Chobani? I just had it today. Snagged 4 diff. kinds at the Fitness expo last weekend. I didn’t like it. It was too sweet and the texture was kind of “jelly-ish”. Most likely due to all the jelly kind of pineapple on the bottom. I hope I like the other flavors better but so far, my all time favorite yogurt is Chobani Plain. Then I like to add 1 TBS of raisins and nuts.
I always prefer plain, but I do like the flavor. I think I like that it’s so thick too. But you’re right, it is a bit gelled.
Nicole, RD says
Corporate Wellness is so interesting to me! I wish my internship would’ve had a rotation like this! And the short commute: added bonus!!!
christina cadden says
mm, looks good!
Paige(Running Around Normal) says
Glad you like the rotation! I’ve never had the pineapple chobs, but I’ve heard it’s amaaazing:)
Foy Update - Garden. Cook. Write. Repeat. says
I have taken to carrying a fork and spoon in my purse. The fork is getting a little bent up, but it has come in useful so many times. The only problem is I borrowed it from my mother in-law. I should probably give it back and use my own silverware.
Chelsea (Chelsea's Chew and Run Fun) says
Looks like you definitely covered all the nutritional bases with your lunch. I love a good snack based meal every once in a while. I absolutely love pineapple Chobani (so creamy and sweet), sorry to hear it’s unavailable where you live!
Thought I would share. I made natural peanut butter with my Vita-Mix with no other ingredients. Then I added some agave and cocoa by hand. It’s absolutely amazing!
[email protected]://stacey-healthylife.blogspot.com/ says
I just picked up some mini Tupperware for my granola. Thanks for the little tip.
Sarah (OC2Seattle) says
Your new rotation sounds super interesting and hooray for a shorter commute!
Cynthia (It All Changes) says
Good that you have so much healthy stuff just on hand. I try to keep my fridge stocked the same way.
Michelle @ G(Y)G says
I love Dr. Kracker crackers. Is it weird to say that I love them because they taste so healthy?? The hearty crunch and the seeds on top.. it’s the best cracker around.
I have never seen the pinapple flavor either. interesting!
What brand is that fork? I love that pattern!
Kristilyn (My 29th Year) says
I love your lunch! I’m the same way, always packing little bits of things … sometimes I can’t make up my mind! Of course, it looks like I’m packing for an army sometimes, with all my tupperware …
I should get some of the Dr. Kraeker crackers next time I see them. I tried the flatbread, thinking it would taste awesome, but I found it to be so hard that it wasn’t enjoyable to eat. Are the crackers really hard?
