That scallop BLT is awesome! Too cute! I’m a red wine girl at heart, but every once in a while a viognier hits the spot. Is Yalumba difficult to find?

I’m going to Blend, too! Can’t wait to meet you! :)

I found it a whole foods! and i know, i am so a red girl but it was a warm day and this was FAB!

Interesting about the Maca powder – I clicked on the link and read about it. I’m always confused about what kinds of superfoods and supplements I should buy

LCCotter January 30, 2013 at 5:52 pm

it’s hard to keep up! but this one is good for lots of baking. let me know if you try it!

My Chobani shipment just came today and I’m so excited to have some for lunch tomorrow. Not sure if I want to start with banana or pear?! ah!!

Reply

LCCotter January 30, 2013 at 5:53 pm

oh gosh, tough call. Maybe a banana pear mix? haha

Jess January 30, 2013 at 5:46 pm

SO jealous that you’ll be at Blend and I won’t be! That is the ONE blogger event I would LOVE to attend. And Chobani is sponsoring you? All the better. I heart Chobani — they just dropped me off some goodies today in fact. Love that!

Also? I need to try this sauv blanc, if its anything like Kim Crawford, I’ll love it. HUGE fan of NZ sauv blancs!! (and hm it’s Winesday, what will YOU be drinking tonight my love?)

LCCotter January 30, 2013 at 5:52 pm

haha, no chobani is sponsoring blend, like the a BIG sponsor! they are awesome like that, whoa! healthy bites is kinda sponsoring me. hehe, trying to. I wish you were going. I need to see you! This wine is nothing like a sauv but it is so CRISP and good! hugs!

Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries January 30, 2013 at 6:08 pm

This post was so fun and you are too cute! I just received my Chobani box today, and I’m definitely thinkin’ I need to try out your banana Chobani combo – yum!

Reply

Paige @ Your Trainer Paige January 30, 2013 at 6:28 pm

Yeah!! That’s so awesome that Chobani is sponsoring your trip. I’m still looking for a sponsor. Either that, or getting our house back in Illinois to sell, stat ;-)
I’ve never tried banana flavored chobani! Sounds yummy.

LCCotter January 30, 2013 at 6:45 pm

Oh not me, I meant the retreat in general. Whoops! Haha

I’m so excited that you’re going to BLEND!!! Yipee!! And your version of milk and cookies? perfect.

Lauren January 30, 2013 at 6:55 pm

AHH banana chobani + chocolate chips FROZEN, then topped with almond butter. Say hello to my nighttime snack tonight!

I wish so bad I could afford to go to BLEND. It would probably be a really good experience for me.

Heather (Where's the Beach) January 30, 2013 at 7:35 pm

Mmm love a good Sauv. Blanc, or pinot grigio, or wine period ;-) I sure wish I could make it to the Blend Retreat. Just terrible timing again.

Reply

Katie January 30, 2013 at 7:35 pm

I can’t do white wine, but reds….I’m all over those.

I also don’t know if I’ve ever had scallops. I must have. Right?

Gina @ Health, Love, and Chocolate January 30, 2013 at 8:11 pm

I can’t wait to try the banana Chobani! And I so wish I could make it to Blend this year, but it is right in the middle of my finals week, ugh. :-(

Reply

Bre January 30, 2013 at 8:52 pm

I love love love that you are getting to go to the Blend Retreat— it will be amazing! :) and I’m loving the Zooma Run plan— I approve of that one too! I need to get on my own training plan for running…maybe this week I will get together a marathon plan. oops. ;)

Reply

Brittany @ Delights and Delectables January 30, 2013 at 9:03 pm

I’m so glad you are going to Blend! I can’t wait to give you a huge hug!! :) I just got my Chobani in the mail, and the hubby is ready to dive in!

Abby @ Change of Pace January 30, 2013 at 9:17 pm

Those scallops look delectable! And I love all the cross training on your run plan! What is one way to stay warm in weather ranging from -26 to -42? Stay inside and put on winter PJs at the earliest possible time!

Reply

Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen January 30, 2013 at 9:18 pm

Scallop BLT? I would jump right off the vegan train for that one I think…maybe…

I like this idea of “run not race” considering I’m SO SLOW and probably always will be. That doesn’t mean I still can’t enjoy it, right?

YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY for BLEND!!!

Ohh I love the “run not race” training plan! So less daunting! I also love the banana CHO, but I mean, who doesn’t love that. ;) I need to try adding nut butter and chocolate to mine!

You won’t believe it (but you should)…I’m already nearly finished with my Healthy Bites! My goodness were they delicious. Next order? The chocolate chip version featured in this post, please. :D I’ll be emailing you this weekend! :)

Oh, and the passage about grace really hit home. Thanks for including that. <3
