Today seems to have been the day of super-tasty food that looks gross. I am also a terrible food photographer so that doesn't help.
Breakfast was yummy.
|Oats cooked with 1/2 cup skim milk, 1/2 cup water, bananas and pumpkin, fried egg with salsa and the rest of my coffee from yesterday that has a dash of vanilla oat milk in it.|
3 years ago, I bought a bunch of Valentines craft stuff at AC Moore. I remember that it was 3 years ago because at the time I was thinking "this will be really useful for entertaining Emily next year when I have a little baby to take care of too". Then I lost the bag of stuff, and only recently found it again when Will cleaned out our downstairs closet. Today, faced with yet another day trapped in the house with my sick kid, I dug out the jewels and the glitter glue for some desperation crafts. Luckily the girls enjoyed it, and it only required minimal cleanup afterward. A definite win!
|The colander was for sticking pipe cleaners in. I don't know why, but kids love it.|
While the girls were crafting, I had a babybel light cheese wheel, then started assembling my lunch.
I didn't know what I wanted, but then I remembered I had leftover guac in the fridge that won't last much longer and an idea was born. This was one fantastic salad!
|Greens, guac, salsa, chopped orange bell peppers, pinto beans, sweet brown rice, black olives, nonfat plain greek yogurt, chopped red onions, corn kernels and a sprinkling of hot chili powder and salt|
In the afternoon I was craving some fruit...
|Pineapple spear and raspberries|
|Yes, I counted them out|
|1/2 banana and 1 Tbsp Justin's peanut butter|
I wasn't sure of the nutritionals on these guys and I was too lazy to look everything up so I just started out with two...
|Mmmm, meat cupcakes|
|Looks gross, tastes delicious|
I loved this take on traditional meatloaf because it was filled with veggies and whole grains, making it a well-balanced dinner all in a convenient loaf format :-) Plus a full 50% of my children ate their serving, which is impressive. Will and I agreed this is how we should always make meatloaf in the future!
A grapefruit rounded out my day.
|Repeat footage. I didn't feel like snapping and uploading for just 1 more picture but I assure you my grapefruit looked almost exactly like this one I ate last month|
