I have a weird obsession with following other people’s lives. It’s been since I was little and my mom would buy stacks and stacks of trashy tabloids to follow the lives of celebrities. Then as I got older I stalked people via AIM away messages. (remember those!?) Next came Myspace, then Facebook, where you can find out every fact of every moment of your friends and foes’ lives. Eventually, I was introduced to the world of blogging. One of my favorite posts to see on my favorite blogging sites is what they ate through a day. So it’s only fair that I share it too! With that in mind, here you go, my own What I Ate Wednesday!
Morning Snack: Cheesin’ hard while enjoying Easiest Baby Cookie Ever
Breakfast: Eggs, PB&J on breast milk pancakes, steamed veggies, and roasted sweet potatoes for Ryan, PB&J Tostada for momma. (Corn tortilla cooked very crispy in coconut oil, topped with peanut butter and jelly. Go make one right now, trust me.)
Lunch: Eggs, roasted sweet potatoes, steamed carrots, broccoli, peas, and corn, raw tomato and cucumber for Ryan, a “quesadilla” with refried beans, corn, olives, and cut up carrots with a side of homemade salsa for me.
Dinner: Poached chicken, steamed veggies, tomato, cucumber, roast sweet potatoes and raw and steamed apples for dessert for Ryan, a huge salad (lettuce mix, tomato, cucumber, olive, banana pepper and homemade strawberry red wine vinegar dressing) and barbecue chicken and onion kabobs and a Coke Zero (life) for me!
There was also an unpictured, larger-than-it-should-have-been handful of Enjoy Life dark chocolate chips after Ryan went to bed too. 😉
So there was our day in food! I try to give Ryan a good bit of options with each meal, but as you can see there is a good bit of overlap, since I use a lot of frozen veggies, and steam a ton at one time to use for multiple meals. Today he had his first olives – I know they’re a bit salty, but it considering that he has no other added salt in his diet, and it was 8 slices total, I’m not worried. I make sure water is readily available at all times as well.
I’m linking up with Peas and Crayons for What I Ate Wednesday!
Have you ever made a random concoction of deliciousness, like I did with my PB&J ‘tostada’? Let me know in the comments!
