What seems like forever ago, I was doing WIAW’s for both Ryan and myself. He was in the very beginning stages of baby led weaning and it was a lot of fun for me to document what he was eating. For some reason (probably because I can barely remember to take pictures of my food, much less mine and a toddler’s.
Either way, I’m bringing it back for this week’s What I Ate Wednesday. Since I apparently don’t have the ability to write a day in the life post, this may be as close as I’ll ever get. These are our eats from last Wednesday. I’m 7 months pregnant and Ryan is 20 months old. Let’s get to it!
Breakfast: Me – unpictured milky coffee much like this one. Ryan – 1 whole wheat pancake (using this recipe, without blueberries because I’m lazy. I double the batch, sub in maple syrup, and freeze them for quick breakfasts) with PB and jelly, yogurt with jelly swirled in
Snack: Ryan – A small cup of rice and raisins a little after breakfast and a smoothie once Alex wakes up. Nothing for me.
Lunch: Sometimes I actually put effort into lunch and don’t just eat leftovers. I KNOW. Me – broccoli with my favorite seasoning (lemon, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese) a scoop of ricotta, and chicken breast with this honey dijon dressing/pan dripping, whatever you want to call it. Ryan – Samesies, plus sweet potatoes and black olives.
Snack: Me – while Ryan napped I had one of these amazing refined sugar free/dairy free/soy free PB cups that I was making to post here soon 😉 In case I can’t have soy or dairy again with this babe, I want to be prepared. Keep an eye out for these because they’re super easy and don’t taste super healthy or weird. Ryan – leftover smoothie. He usually has some kind of fruit and carb, usually rice to be honest, but when there is leftover smoothie in the morning, I just throw it in the fridge for after his nap.
Dinner: Me – a chicken tender, breaded and baked, sweet potato rounds, and frozen mixed vegetables. Ryan – same plus some shredded cheese, broccoli from lunch, and black olives.
Snack: There was unpictured popcorn for me after the boy went to bed. Because can’t stop, won’t stop.
So tell me, what’s your favorite night time snack you can’t stop lately? Mommas – what are your favorite snacks to give your toddlers? Let me know in the comments!
