WIAW- Since When Do I Eat Chipotle?



I am actually surprised that it is Wednesday already. Where is the week going and really, more importantly, where is the summer going?

We already started with the school supply shopping last night at Target because I always loved loading up on the school on new notebooks, pens and crayons but I think as my son gets older and school gets more involved, my excitement turns more into dread (early wake-ups, homework, projects and messy binders).

Actually, I don’t wish to talk about school right now.

Let’s take a look at what I ate yesterday instead.




Breakfast #1:

Some oatmeal with cinnamon, banana, berries and a little peanut butter plus coffee before my workout.

Breakfast #2:

I go through fresh berries these days like nobody’s business.

Oatmeal with lots of berries, Skoop B-Strong and peanut butter (stirred in after I took the picture).

I had to be in the city mid-morning so I packed a snack/mini-lunch just in case I got hungry/stuck in traffic.

ezekiel bread with pb bananas and berries

One slice of cinnamon raisin ezekiel bread with peanut butter, a few banana slices and blueberries. I fold the little sandwich in half and wrap it in aluminum foil. Perfect portable filling mini-meal. I much prefer things like this over bars and packaged snacks when I can help it.

I got into the city super quick (no traffic!) so once I parked my car, I walked my way to a Dunkin Donuts for another cup of coffee before heading up to the office.

I was done with my meeting around lunch time and decided to head out of the city rather than stay for lunch to avoid traffic.

I picked at my packed snack while I drove knowing I would make a smoothie bowl as soon as I got home.

In the mix:

  • Ice
  • Spinach
  • Frozen berries (blueberries, cherries, blackberries, raspberries)
  • Cooked, cold oatmeal
  • Skoop B-Strong
  • PB2

I added peanut butter on top 🙂



I am pretty sure this is the first time I am sharing a salad picture from Chipotle here on the blog since yesterday was my first dinner there in I can’t remember how long.


It’s not that I don’t like Mexican food, I just never crave it. My son wanted to go to Chipotle which was fine with me because in the summer, I don’t feel like cooking as much during the week, so I ordered a salad which contained black beans, brown rice, corn, fajita vegetables and guacamole.

I actually just saw on the news that there are two men currently making headlines for eating at Chipotle every day for 100 days. I am a creature of habit like that, I respect it.


I have a fruit addiction lately which isn’t a bad thing, just sometimes an expensive thing if you don’t watch for the specials.


I picked up these gigantic granny smith apples at The Fresh Market the other day which is exciting for me because I love dicing up a big apple at night, sprinkling it with cinnamon and then dipping in some peanut butter with a side of chocolate chips.

Only I forgot to take a picture of the peanut butter part. And the part about the chocolate chips. I think I was too taken back by the amount of apple slices I yielded from cutting such a giant apple.

Be sure to check out what everyone else is eating today!

If you could eat anywhere 100 days in a row, what place would you choose? It’s a toss up between Red Mango and The Cheesecake Factory for me!

Favorite type of apple? Do you eat apples plain or always with nut butter?

Have you started the school supply shopping yet even though it’s early?

    That first paragraph about school got me nervous too! Not ready yet at all! Good move getting in and out of the city quickly, to me that’s a very productive day. And there’s a chipotle really close to my house yet it’s never the right time for it for some reason!

      Chipotle is down the block and Moe’s is the across the street and I never go lol….When I am in and out of the city like nothing it is definitely a pleasure and considered productive! Yesterday was terrific. It’s days like that where schlepping to the city isn’t a shlep at all.

    HAHA our love for huge ass apples is awesome! I only buy big apples. And when I see huge blueberries or grapes that’s a plus too! 🙂

    I love chipotle! I think I could eat there for 100 days straight. Or maybe the Whole Foods salad bar if that’s an option 🙂 I don’t have any kids but I always loved going back to school shopping growing up. I liked school as a kid and I would get excited when a new year was starting 🙂

    Ahhhh.. school! Although some days I really miss it. 😉 Two of the kids get pre-ordered school supplies so I don’t have to go out and shop for them but the older three need to get their lists and start shopping soon before it gets too hectic in the stores. Maybe when it’s smokin hot out next we can go shopping in the air conditioning and get it over with!

    Favorite apples = Pink Lady. I also like Jazz, Braeburn, Granny Smith, and some of the heirloom NY kinds like Baldwins. Yes, I’m an apple fanatic – I definitely eat at least one every day, and in winter when there isn’t all the other fresh fruit it’s more like 2-3.

    I love peanut butter and apples!! Gala and fuji and pink lady are my faves – but I rarely have one i don’t like (except Red Delicious).
    I love school supplies – love that Target already has them and I want them all 🙂 (for me, even though I’m not in school …)
    AND I would go for anything Lebanese for 100 days in a row. Hummus. Tabbouleh. etc. Though CCF is a great choice- so many options!

    If you love your fresh berries.. I would highly recommend NEVER moving to Kuwait. From how much you eat of them, it’ll most likely cost you your savings + retirement $$$.

    Great eats! I have to say I haven’t been to Chipotle in a while…My husband LOVES it and I’m sure if he was here with me he’d be all over it. They built one {finally} close to my parents so I’m sure I will get my fill when he comes to visit!

    It’s nice to see another Meredith in the blogging world! And one that like Dunkin Donuts Coffee, girl after my own heart! If I could eat anywhere for 100 days in a row, it would be Portillos! Chicago hotdogs at their finest!

    Ah, to be a child again getting to buy new school supplies … and a side of stickers for good measure :).
    Your giant apples remind me of the 1 lb+ ones I got at a Farmer’s Market earlier this year. I used to like Granny Smith but not anymore now as I’ve become too sensitive to their acidity. It’s hard/impossible to pick a favourite apple but at the moment I really like Jonagored and Elstar.
