So today (Tuesday, as I write this last minute) as been the longest day ever. After a long morning with a cranky baby, going to the store, only to realize I didn’t have my wallet, said cranky baby only taking one 30-minute nap, and my phone dying and refusing to recharge, I’m done with today. Adios, finito, end, DONE. But, at least I have my favorite post of the week to put together and share with all of you!
Like always, I’m linking with Jen for What I Ate Wednesday!
In contrast to the poopy day and rushed food of today, Monday had some pretty good food! Thanks to a surprise early visit from my monthly lady, I was starving at every meal, leading to a huge lunch and dinner. Anyway, enough babbling and whining, here’s my eats! (If you want a more in depth, meal by meal post of Ryan’s eats, check you some of my older What I Ate Wednesdays, like this one, this one, or this one.)
Breakfast: I made Ryan some egg bites and decided to just eat the same for breakfast because I was way too tired. Add in a plethora of watermelon (I’m not going to bother to write “snack” here. Just insert a lot of watermelon between meals.) and a cup of cold brew, and I was a happy momma. Okay, maybe not happy as it was Monday morning, but I was more awake.
Lunch: Oh, hi new favorite salad. Spinach topped with a cooked/thickened mix of brown rice, black beans and salsa, fresh onion, pepper and tomato, more salsa, greek yogurt, cheese, black olives and cilantro. This is a good, easy meal for one that takes less than 5 minutes if you do some meal prep.
Dinner: Ryan had his first corn cob for dinner, and that is a face of pure joy, people. He also had chicken, carrots, broccoli, tomato, I had my favorite fast dinner. A little prep and you’ve got one tasty meal for one. (or maybe two, less hungry people with a side) A bag of frozen stir fry, precooked brown rice, onion, garlic, and chopped chicken. Saute the chicken, onion and garlic until cooked through and steam the veggies. Add the veggies to the pan, add some soy sauce, chili flakes (I’M TRYING TO LIKE SPICY, GUYS.) some optional brown sugar/honey/duck sauce. Saute a bit more, and eat. Dinner for one, DONE.
Dessert: excuse the recycled picture, but I finished this pint of amazing Ben and Jerry’s, Three nights. One pint. #sorryimnotsorry.
