Happy Wednesday! I personally am pretty pumped that the week is halfway over, especially since we’re celebrating our anniversary this weekend! The original idea was to make a beach weekend out of it, but its supposed to be gloomy and cold, so I’m bummed. Either way, a weekend with my boys, relaxing, sounds pretty good right now.
As always, I’m posting my eats for a whole day for What I Ate Wednesday. If you’re new to What I Ate Wednesday, head over to Peas and Crayons to get the full scoop, where Jen hosts this lovely link-up each week. So here, you go!
Breakfast: Half(ish) of a bagel, and yogurt with honey, PB and chopped apple for me, and eggs, tomato, sweet potato, peas, carrots, and broccoli for the boy. Fruit is now given after the meal or else he won’t eat, so some strawberries and apple we eated later.
Snack: Alex sent this on Monday because he’s the sweetest husband ever and knows that food is the way to my heart, not flowers. As you can imagine, we’ve been snacking on this non-stop. The fruit is all perfectly ripe and delicious!! Ryan ate chunks of apple all day, leaving the chewed up, spit out peels all over the house. Thanks, bud.
Lunch: Salad with spinach, chopped turkey, apple, tomato, onion, broccoli, peas and corn, shredded carrot, shredded cheddar and lots of balsamic. Pretty much whatever was in the fridge. Ryan had the same, separated.
Snack: Have you ever tried cream top yogurt? It’s UNBELIEVABLE. I instantly regretted not buying more. This was my second cup, and the first day Ryan had his first few spoonfuls of yogurt (IE, he ate half) and, obviously he loved it. He cried when I took the spoon away.
Dinner: This was pretty similar to lunch, but a million times better. First, spinach, chopped with scissors and sprinkled with seasoning and a good amount of balsamic. Add veggies (I used tomato, onion, peas, carrots) and shredded parmesan and toss together. On top, add warm sweet potatoes (I had just finished roasting some sticks for ryan, so I chopped them and put ’em on top.) and some form of meat. Beans would also work. I used left over beef rib from lunch on Sunday, and OH MY GOD YOU GUYS. I can’t. I also tried this Zevia cola, which was pretty good, but no beloved Coke Zero. It tastes like a melted Coke Slurpee, which I’m okay with. Ryan had balsamic chicken and veggies!
Dessert: I can’t end my day without a tasty treat, so some of that delicious fruit and a big ol’ squirt of whipped cream were in order. Uhm, those chocolate covered strawberries? SO. GOOD.
