Weekly Eats {New Chobani Flavors}

Hi everyone, time for my Weekly Eats post!

The absolute highlight of all food related things last week was the free Chobani I received to my front door on Wednesday!

chobaniMy friends at Chobani sent me this sample package to try out some of their new flavors.  So thrilling!  I am OBSESSED with coconut and apricot.  Blackberry is a close runner-up.  Tim is loving orange vanilla and says it tastes like a creamsicle!  Thank you, Chobani, for your generous delivery!  A happy dance may or may not have been done more than once.

Another highlight from last week was the food I ate at my company picnic.  I think I did a pretty good job keeping things healthy despite all the options at my disposal.  I started out with a bowl of fruit, and then I pretty much stuck to seafood: oysters, mussels, lobster.  My treats for the day included sharing fried dough with some of my girlfriends and enjoying some adult bevvies!

PicnicAside from those highlights, we ate two main lunches last week.

First up was a southwestern sweet potato salad:

Honestly I was drowning in things to catch up on and I scarfed down a peanut butter sandwich on a multi-grain sandwich thin at like 10pm.  Oy.  Seriously if you were trying to be in touch with me last week via any form of contact, I’m sorry.  And for the record, I had a headache for about three days straight because I didn’t eat a filling enough dinner and because I ate it so much later than my workout ended.  Not good!

Thursday & Friday
Back on track with grilled chicken and grilled peach salads.

Leftover lobster from our picnic!  Tim and Joe whipped up this lobster salad for lobster rolls while Cate and I drank wine outside and talked about girl things.  I think we could get used to that!

Can’t wait to see who else is rocking their planks this week!  Anyone try a plank for the first time?!

Another weekend update


I survived my travels back to Boston!  For breakfast, Colleen and I met early in the hotel for one last Marriott breakfast of oatmeal and fruit.  At the airport we stopped at Itza Wrap Itza Bowl to grab a healthy “to go” option for lunch during our 4 hour flight.  I chose a wheat wrap with turkey, shredded mozzarella cheese, red pepper, lettuce, tomato, and avocado.  The lady behind the counter could NOT get it through her head that I wanted a wrap without bacon or mayo!  She totally judged me.

I didn’t feel like doing anything crazy once I got home.  I took a nap and helped Tim prep his apartment for his post-picnic party on Saturday while he made me a homemade dinner consisting of steak topped with mushrooms and onions, rice, and steamed broccoli.  After dinner we decided to get some drinks locally.  I wanted to try somewhere new and we ended up at Deep Ellum in Allston – really close to both of our apartments!  You would never think it from the looks of the place from the street, but it has a super cute outdoor patio out back.  So we sat over 2 glasses of sangria for me and a few beers for Tim and caught up on our weeks.  It was a much needed night!


Saturday was my work picnic!  My company has this 2 day event every August.  It has free food – SO much free food – so I knew going into it that it wouldn’t be the healthiest day!  They had lobsters, steamers, clam chowder, hot dogs, burgers, sausages, chicken wings, cotton candy, fried dough, salads, ice cream sundaes, corn on the cob, oysters, and probably so much more that I’m probably forgetting!  Oh and they have free beer and wine too, and a huge carnival with rides, games, and activities geared more toward kids.  This was actually the first year I didn’t go on any kid rides!

I ate steamers, clam chowder, and a lobster at the beginning of the picnic – I figured seafood would be a better choice than the fried options.  But then as the day continued I also had a hot dog and an ice cream sundae – vanilla topped with strawberry and walnuts.  I actually didn’t feel overly stuffed like I usually do, so that was good enough for me!

Tim hosted the post-picnic after party at his apartment.  There were a lot of snacks and dips and cookies and brownies.  I think that after all the salads I ate while on the road that I deserved it!  🙂


We made smoothies for breakfast!

For lunch we ate leftover lobsters – yes we were those people that walked out of the picnic with lobsters to go.  Why not!  And dinner was at my aunt’s new condo – we had a little goodbye dinner for my cousin Andrew who is studying abroad in Prague next semester.  We snacked on cheese and crackers to start, and then dinner options included chicken cutlets, noodles, salad, tiropita, and dolmades.  And some cupcakes & oatmeal cookies for dessert.  I tried to limit myself after Saturday’s indulging but that is definitely hard to do when the food is right in front of you!

Sometimes I wish I were two years old and didn’t have to worry about things like indulging in cupcakes.  Layla is so lucky.

Hope everyone had a great weekend 🙂
