I’ll be honest. Inspiration for this food diary post came from the fact that I really had no time to develop and photograph some of the blog topics I want to write about. Since we got back from Disney (I think that has been roughly a month now- ha!), I feel like I’ve been in a constant game of catch up. My new year’s goal for this space was to derive more content from my everyday life, so I pulled out my camera and started snapping. Long story short– here is yesterday through the eyes of my plate.
Sauteed peppers (from the freezer) and onion with a fried egg (we were out of avocado!) and watermelon. Earl Gray tea with one scoop of collagen to drink.
Though I was going to stay food focused with this post, I couldn’t help but giggle while I watched the girls so I had to snap a (poorly lit and blurry) picture of this:
My friends are helping me redecorate our living room and all these old pillows were piled up in the kitchen. The girls were so excited to turn them into “beds” while I made breakfast.
I hit up Burn in the morning for a whiteboard then we headed straight to the library to meet up with a friend.
It was a great workout (drop set each different color row 20-15-10-5 then to 40 high knees and switch to the next row).
I needed a quick snack after so I grabbed a chocolate sea salt RX Bar. I’ve tried a maple sea salt bar and could not eat it; tasted terrible to me. The blueberry was OK. The chocolate sea salt was pretty good! They remind me of a giant tootsie roll but I love the clean ingredients and added protein. I’ll buy them again.
Since it’s almost my grocery shopping day and we are low on food, I pulled a jar of Tonnino tuna fish out of the pantry for lunch. I like that it’s wild caught, low mercury, and comes in some delicious varieties.
Mixed greens, grape tomatoes, garlic caper tuna fish, carrot sticks, and plantain chips with Garlic Expressions salad dressing.
As usual, as soon as I set down my bowl, little hands wanted in on my lunch action.
I made a second cup of tea to do some work on the computer while the girls had rest time (neither napped- typical) then played together in the playroom for another hour. Since my tuna salad didn’t stick for long, I grabbed a snack too.
Sliced banana with Publix’s almond butter (I like the consistency of it) and a sprinkle of Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips.
We all ate dinner together at 5:30 while I relished in the joy of a later sunset.
Slow Cooker honey garlic chicken thighs over rice.
Yesterday was Hailey’s half birthday. Since I have trouble enough trying to keep up with celebrations for real birthdays, I don’t usually do anything spectacular, but I did sneak in two mini cheesecakes to surprise her.
We all sang and dug in with our forks.
She giggled and sparkled with pride as she relayed to us the story of telling her preschool teacher that she was now officially 5 1/2.
My sweet girl (heart eye emoji).
After the girls went down, I sipped a pamplemousse La Croix (which is probably my favorite flavor) while watching This Is Us. I’m a committed fan since binge watching it when I had the flu, though I’m a week behind so no spoilers please! 😉
And that was it- our wild and crazy Wednesday!
Do you celebrate half birthdays at your house?
Any new bar or food product you’ve tried and liked (or not liked!) lately?
