The second rule is to pick somewhere that has something everyone wants to eat - and I've discovered that grown-ups can be just as particular as kids. That is exactly why my family and my girlfriends and I so often choose Panera for our lunch dates....more
She didn't know I was planning to pick her up from school. She usually rides the bus. When we walked past the vending machines on the way to the car she asked, "Can I get something?" I said, "Lucy. No. We are going to Panera." To which she skipped and wooted and I win. Immediately, she asked, "Can I get one of those.... BREADBOWLS?"...more
Lunch with a toddler is tricky. I’m not a fan of fast food restaurants, but sitting down to a long meal is just asking for trouble. For these reasons, Panera is one of our favorite out-to-lunch options. For starters, I know I can find my favorites there. I usually opt for the You Pick Two because I have problems with committing to just one menu item....more
When you go out to eat, do you order the same meal most times, or -- instead -- do you try something new? I definitely have distinct favorites, especially when it comes to food out at different local and chain restaurants. So, when BlogHer approached me with the opportunity to share my favorite Panera meal, I jumped on the chance; I surely have a go-to....more
We are big-time Panera customers - breakfast consumers. Almost every Sunday, you can find either my husband or myself in our local Panera, trying to get just the right mix of bagels for breakfast. Usually it involves a frantic text conversation - Don't forget the Chocolate Chip and the Asiago Cheese - oh! If they have Cherry Vanilla those are the BEST....more
One of my favorite places to eat is Panera Bread. I was so excited when a Panera Bread opened up a few minutes from our house last year. Our girls were excited also because it has one of their favorite things... Cinnamon Crunch Bagels....more
One of my favorite restaurants that I have frequented OFTEN for the last 15 or more years is Panera. It went WAY up a notch for me over the last year or two when ours relocated and added a Drive-Thru!!! Hallelujah!!! If there is anything a mother of small children loves - it's a drive-thru! It's nice to have a place I can go with the kids in the car without getting out and have healthy alternatives to fast food....more
There is more than one person in my life that gets a kick out of the fact that there is always food stashed in my purse. It might just be a few dates or a banana, but I hardly ever leave the house without something to snack on. Being prepared with healthy snacks while out and about is definitely one of my cornerstones for staying healthy....more
Dining out can be pretty tough when you're trying to be healthy. There are so many temptations and sometimes finding healthy items on the menu can be difficult. One of our go to spots for a quick lunch is Panera Bread. I'm sure many of you eat at Panera as well so today I thought I would share my go to favorite healthy meal from there. I've been eating off their "hidden menu" for quite some time but now it's not so hidden ;)...more
Panera has always been one of my favorite meet up spots for lunch. I love the atmosphere, the lunch options, and the prices! Whether it was grabbing a sandwich with my teammates back in college, enjoying a bowl of soup with my family after church, or grabbing my favorite You Pick Two option after a long morning of moving, Panera has always been a great lunch (and dinner) spot....more
