Sharing an entire day of eats from begin to end.
Hey hey! Happy humpday! What’s occurring this morning? I've 1:1 calls all morning and getting a podcast episode edited and able to go. I hope you could have a beautiful day forward.
For at the moment’s submit, I believed I’d share a WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) because it’s been some time. I all the time love getting wholesome meal inspiration from pals, so I prefer to share these posts for an thought of what a typical day of eats appears to be like like. I can perceive why all these posts is probably not useful for everybody (sharing my ideas on that right here!) however I attempted some a few new recipes and am excited to share them with ya.
Here’s what a full day of latest eats regarded like from begin to end! (I took these pics a few weeks in the past however am simply sharing them now! The children weren’t at camp this explicit week, so I used to be juggling work stuff in between ensuring they have been pleased, fed, and entertained. The Pilot was additionally out of city for work so I used to be doing the solo parenting factor. I additionally allow them to watch some additional TV whereas I bought issues accomplished, let’s be actual.)
I slept in till 8 (summer time, I like youuuuuuuuuuuu) after which began my day with a big glass of water with Sakara Beauty drops (minerals which might be fully tasteless. I like including these to my water since I filter it with the Berkey, and my stress degree is a bit greater currently, which may deplete minerals)
Since it was a busy morning work-wise, I had a Bulletproof bar and a cup of espresso (decaf with uncooked milk, Stevia, and collagen), probiotics/digestive enzymes from Sakara and made the children a fast breakfast. I sat on the kitchen desk with my laptop and helped the children whereas they labored on their summer time packets.
Watered the vegetation and had the remainder of my breakfast:
2 scrambled eggs, 2 slices of turkey bacon, and a reheated Super Hero muffin from this cookbook. These muffins are SO good and the children cherished serving to me make them. Whenever we make breakfast staples, I attempt to make a double batch and freeze them for fast choices.
I sat by the pool writing whereas the children swam, hopped in for a bit to chill off and play, and took two 1:1 teaching calls upstairs whereas the children dried off and ate their lunch.
1:30 pm: Lunch
Chopped rooster salad with inexperienced olives, artichokes, spinach, Primal Kitchen Goddess dressing, a bowl of blueberries, and a Sakara inexperienced smoothie
(My fave veggie hack = the Poshi packs from Thrive Market. They’re good for including to salads, scrambles, and wraps.)
+ a mug of inexperienced tea whereas I completed unfastened ends and logged out for the day.
I bought dinner into the Instant Pot, and the children and I spent the remainder of the afternoon on the trampoline park (with a cease at DQ for cones for the ladies on the best way house).
This is one among our go-to soup combos at any time when somebody is feeling underneath the climate, or when a soup craving hits. Even when it’s 100+ levels right here, soup all the time sounds good to me. We every had it with a hunk of sourdough bread and the children cherished it, too!
After dinner, we took Maisey for a brief stroll across the neighborhood. Caro selected to stay snoozing on the sofa.
8:30pm baked apples for all. The children and I wished just a little candy chew after dinner, and all of us love this night snack. You simply chop an apple, microwave it in a bowl with cinnamon for about 2 minutes, and high with peanut butter and/or chocolate chips. (In this case, it was chocolate peanut butter. SO good.) I additionally had a mug of heat almond milk with Organifi chocolate gold.
I showered the crew, we learn books, and I put them to mattress, and cranked out some final minute work: completed a weblog submit, drafted social media shout outs, edited a reel whereas listening to an IHP module. I learn just a few pages of a e-book (ending this one) earlier than crashing out at round 11:45.
What I appreciated about today:
I hit my protein purpose, however most significantly: it was a day of filling and satisfying eats. The children loved today of meals, particularly the soup and the breakfast. (For lunch, that they had a deconstructed model of the salad and their breakfast was the identical + some strawberries and banana.) I used to be additionally happy with myself for having actual meals!! It may be troublesome to juggle work and the children in the course of the day (which is why I normally signal them up for a minimum of half-day summer time camps or ask our babysitter to come back over for just a few hours) as a result of I really feel stretched and like I’m all the time ignoring one thing or somebody.
On days like this, until I’ve prepped so much upfront, I are likely to have bites of issues in between duties and chores, or eat on the laptop or within the automotive. This explicit day, I had rounded meals, sat all the way down to get pleasure from them, and I really feel fairly pumped about that.
What I'd have modified:
I'd have discovered a means so as to add some veggies to breakfast to extend my servings only a bit. I additionally would have most well-liked to eat breakfast first as a substitute of the bar, however it was sufficient to carry me over till I might eat a full meal. Since I ended consuming meals on the laptop, I can’t do it anymore! It feels so significantly better to attend till I can sit down and really style the meals I’m consuming. 😉
What’s one of the best factor you ate yesterday? Anything you’re at the moment loving or new cookbook faves?
