North Carolina or Bust!

Good afternoon!

So if you know me in real life, you’ll know that “_____- or bust” is pretty much my favorite phrase. Get prepared to see this on the blog a lot 😉

Anyway, this evening after class I’m driving down to UNC-Chapel Hill! They have an open house tomorrow for their MPH program, which is what their Nutrition stuff comes under. I hope it’s worth the drive! I’ll be staying with my friend Amy from high school and her husband. We were on varsity tennis together, although she was way better than me 😉

Lunch today was awesome and veggie-tastic. Veggies or bust?? 😉

One of my favorite combos is hummus and cracked pepper, spread on a wrap or pita (this was the Trader Joes brown rice wraps again)…


… with some fresh sliced tomatoes…


… and then topped off with some Massaged Kale Salad. I learned this tasty recipe awhile ago from Meghann’s blog and have been loving it ever since! Basically, you take some kale (washed and trimmed… or bought in a bag where they’ve already done that for you), drizzle some olive oil on it, add some fresh lemon juice (I used juice from 1/2 a lemon for this portion), add some fresh cracked pepper, and “massage” it all together with your hands! Delish. And makes your hands soft 🙂


Nom, nom nom! The word nom makes me giggle.

Had it with another lovely Goat Cheese and Beet Salad, except that this was actually feta this time, so I’m kind of lying. 🙂


Annnnnnd with some homemade iced tea mixed with a little bit of POM Wonderful (3 parts tea, 1 part POM) Yummy!!!


And an unpictured pear a little bit later 🙂

Off I go! Time to run some errands, head to class, come back, frantically over-pack (duh), eat a quick early din din (leftover Sweet Potato Lentil Chili (topped with marinara sauce and cilantro – so good) and toast?), and then hit the road! I’m packing a billion snacks for the drives and for the info session tomorrow, obviously. No one likes to be around a hungry Anne 😉

I’ll be back either late Friday night or Saturday morning, so stay tuned for a UNC recap! Have a lovely day 🙂

  1. Have fun at the open house. UNC is my dream school. I love it.

  2. I’ve been meaning to try a massaged kale salad. I saw a variation where you massage the kale with avocado. That sounds really good.

  3. Wish you could come to Charlotte!!

  4. Hey Anne – I’ve never really understood that ______ or bust phrase?!?! Probably because I stink with phrases, I always mess them up. Something like “you should walk a mile before that chicken hatches”

  5. california or bust!!
