Apparently Lauri and I (EarthFare veterans) make some serious salads
Our morning was filled with two presentations, one on the nutrition research institute up in Kannapolis (really cool stuff going on up there!) and the second on OSHA and pathogen safety.
I had some coffee (black, ’cause I don’t do powdered creamers) when I got there this morning, which I had to chug before going to the first presentation, and then pumpkin spice tea that I brought from home at 11 to warm up.
We broke for lunch at noon and caravaned on foot over to EarthFare. Well, some of us walked. It’s not that cold! And I got some exercize endorphins and vitamin D on my scalp 🙂
I got a wonderful serious salad packed with
A soy nugget
A chicken piece
A handful of berries
A slice of grilled pineapple
A seasame cookie
Hit. The. Spot.
Sipping more hot tea from home brewed in EF water on the walk home!
Shannon (The Daily Balance) says
serious salad, indeed! Pumpkin Spice tea sounds heavenly!
Have a great afternoon 😉
Casey (@Spicy&Sweet) says
Mmm…that salad looks super tasty! I find myself eating more salads during the summer…I need to step it up during the summer 🙂
Jessica @ How Sweet says
That does look like a fantastic salad!
I’ve recently started adding more “stuff” to my salads. I used to be strictly lettuce, cucumbers and dressing. Now I like all kinds of things in the mix!
Morgan @ Healthy Happy Place says
your salad looks delish! i love adding fruit to mine, especially at lunch
The salad looks fantastic!
Hillary @ Nutrition Nut on the Run says
Be careful about not getting too much Vitamin D on your scalp =) Have a great rest of your day!
Heather @ The Joyful Kitchen says
that is a SERIOUSLY amazing salad! hurray for food 🙂
Wow! What a salad — serious eats indeed! (and pretty! haha)
I love huge salads!! Wish there was an EarthFare near me 🙁
weekly bite says
I swear you have the best salads in the blogosphere! YUM!
Sarah (OC2Seattle) says
That is a serious salad – it almost makes me want one (total salad hater)! Sounds like the internship is going well – nice to have that type of camaraderie on a daily basis.
You look so happy!!! (and cold brrr)
Julie @ Peanut Butter Fingers says
quite the salad hodge podge. lovin’ it!
That salad looks fabulous! Do the people in your group realize that they’re eating with a famous foodie? 😉
I’ve told a few 🙂
You LOOK chilly 🙂 I’m glad you got some time at lunch today! Rushing through eating is never fun.
Jenn (www. j3nn.net ) says
Excellent salad!! 😀
Cynthia C. says
I love to fill up big salad bowls at places like that….Keeps me full and healthy.
And I love that you brought your own tea mug. Great way to conserve.
Freya @ foodfitnessandfreya.wordpress.com says
What an amazing and healthy lunch!! I’m taking it Earthfare is a bit like a buffet? I wish we had more places like that in England – salads here are SO dull 🙁 but we have the best chocolate instead 😀
Whitney @ Lettuce Love says
A fabulous salad indeed!
You do have superior salad-making skills. By a long shot. 🙂
I have to say…I think that is the most beautiful salad I’ve ever seen!
My SO is in Rock Hill right now. I’m sending him to EarthFare this week (or next since he’ll be stuck down there for two weeks).
He’s instructed to eat something there since you always have the best looking lunches outta that place!
Lauren @ Reading and Running says
Yum, the salad looks amazing! I sure wish there was an Earthfare in Dallas!
Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) says
I’m not a fan of the powdered creamers either. Even with all the junk that it’s in it, it’s mostly the taste that turns me off. But the tea sounds nice! 😀
Love the salad!
That is a SERIOUS salad!
mary ann says
So last nights din… GLORIOUS. just for the record, i like my meat as rare as the chef’s legally able/willing to serve it, haha. Plus there are supposedly less carcinogens. Holler! to the environment and less toxins in the bod!
That IS a heck of a salad 🙂
Good Taste. Healthy Me says
I am dying to try pumpkin spice tea and I can’t seem to find it! 🙁
That is a serious salad! Nutritious and yummy!
So jealous of your Earth Fare! About the only thing I miss about working in downtown Chicago were my lunch options – although I do save a bunch of $$ bringing my own! 😀
Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope says
Sounds like a busy day! LOVE LOVE that salad!
That is one amazing salad!
Cait (Cait's Plate) says
I’m always so jealous of your Earth Fare salads!
thats a hugh jass!! 🙂 love it!
Wow – that salad sounds, and looks amazing!
I just bought that pumpkni spice tea this week after seeing it on teh blog and have to say–it’s pretty tasty!!!!
Danielle (Coffee Run) says
I love gigantic salads 🙂
Are you blogging from your phone?!
Allison K says
I need a better camera! Your phone takes better pics than my camera!
What is EarthFare and can I find one on the east coast?! Because that salad looked amazzzing
Julie @savvyeats says
I want that salad. Yum!
Katy @ These Beautiful Feet says
Mmm that salad looks super yummy. I thing I love about looking into becoming a registered dietitian is that you are constantly learning with all of the seminars and conferences and such! Super interesting..at least I hope it was for you!! 🙂
Paige(Running Around Normal) says
Sounds like a great day so far. That salad looks amazing! And your coat is adorable! Rocking the one glove look, I see 😉
Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg says
Why the one glove, Michael Jackson? 🙂
Your salad looks delicious!
I had to get the iPhone ready!!

Wow! What a great lookin salad!
ellen eats beets says
damnnnn girl I wish that was the salad I had for lunch!!
Ali @ Food, Fitness, Fashion says
That very much resembles my lunch 🙂
The pumpkin spice tea sounds verrrrry good! And yay for exercise endorphins 😀
That’s one of my favorite teas but I couldn’t find it anywhere around here this year. Glad you enjoyed a cup to warm you up.
Are they any other food bloggers in your class, or have they heard of you? If not, do they think you’re a little crazy?
No other professional bloggers that I know of. One girl recognized me though because she works at the hospital where I will be interning! And I prefer to think of most people’s responses as “cool” and not “crazy”
Sharon @ What Is Sharon Doing Now?! says
I have never heard of Earth Fare, but now, after seeing your plate, need to do some research.
My salads always end up chock full of healthy ingredients, and by the end of building one, it’s HUGE! haha I’m so glad that you had a wonderful afternoon. Earthfare is quite a nice store. I hope you have a great rest of the week!
currently drooling and wondering: what is a soy nugget?
Admittedly not the most “real food” on the buffet… it’s a chicken nugget that’s made of soy. I don’t really care for chicken nuggets or soy-based foods, but for some reason these taste so good to me and have a great texture. I wouldn’t buy them, but I eat them occasionally.
I wish there was an Earth Fare here! And what is a soy nugget?
Having a giveaway on my blog today, come on by!
Beautiful salad, Kath!
Can’t wait to follow along on your dietetic intern experiences. I’m a preceptor for the local Dietetic Interns…we have a class starting next week- each intern will rotate with me for one week in wellness/weight management. It’s been 10 years since my intern experience, so I look forward to seeing your thoughts/experiences…hopefully I can learn something that will make me a better preceptor!
Have a great week!
What is the deal with this cold??? It was freezing everywhere today, I know I am ready for the summer again 🙂
Ooh I like that jacket!! Looks nice on you
P.S I just started blogging if you’d like to check out my page Kath!
Now that’s a salad.
lynn (The Actors Diet) says
berries in salads are a great idea – not so serious!
May as well wear a hat—above about northern FL/southern GA, it is impossible for human skin to synthesize any Vitamin D from sun exposure. Due to the angle of the sun hitting the earth at these latitudes during the winter, the UV penetrance is nowhere near strong enough to produce any Vitamin D. So, either head south or take those supplements!!! You need 1000-3000 IU/day, and it is nearly impossible to overdose (you’d need to be getting probably at LEAST 10k IU/day), so load up!!! 🙂
Oh wow, that salad looks so awesome. Blackberries, well at least that is what they look like.
Might have to start thinking outside the box.
