|5:00 AM Just woke up snack: Food for Life Gluten-Free English Muffin,|
with honey and Earth Balance butter.
|7:30 AM Breakfast: "Chocolate Ice Cream Smoothie"|
Pretty pictures aside, I almost always eat this smoothie
on the go as I'm getting Avery ready or driving to work,
so I use this rockin' mega mug.
|Guess who else is hooked on "Chocolate Ice Cream Smoothies"|
for breakfast? Avery! I'll usually put some in her Lollacup
to take and drink when she's at the sitter.
|9:20 AM Snack: Peanut Butter & Jelly Larabar|
|10:30 AM Morning snack: Gluten-free, vegan pancakes|
from Cinnamon Quill with Maple Agave Nectar as my syrup,
and a "shot" of orange juice to drink.
|12:30 PM Lunch: Potato, Corn, and Black Bean Stew (speaking of veggies!)|
This stew is also great with organic corn tortilla chips...yum!
|2:15 Afternoon snack #1: orangic pear|
|3:30 Afternoon snack #2: small portion of gluten-free pasta|
with spaghetti sauce.
Perhaps it's the frugal side of me that likes to use every bit of the leftovers up, but sometimes if I have a portion that is not big enough to be used as a lunch, but too big that I feel bad about throwing away, I'll use it instead as an afternoon snack. A benefit of this is that I feel like these "mini-meal leftovers" help keep me full for much longer than my usual afternoon snacks of crackers, a piece of fruit, and another Larabar. On top of that who doesn't like spaghetti at 3:00 in the afternoon? Okay, only me I guess. ( : Anyone else use leftovers like this?
After work I headed home and this is who greeted me at the door...doing the splits. She's one flexible girl.
|Just doing a little stretching as I wait for mom to come home.|
|"Is that my mom? I know her! I know her!"|
|Since the weather was unusually nice, we decided to go for a|
wagon ride in the driveway.
|The wagon ride turned into a dance session...as most things do|
|And surprise, someone did not want to sit down in the wagon.|
|Avery enjoyed her second smoothie of the day.|
|Later on she munched on a kale leaf as she crawled around|
in the kitchen...her choice, not mine!
|7:15 Dinner: Pizza (Rudi's Gluten-free pizza crust, Daiya|
vegan mozzarella cheese, organic spaghetti sauce, mushrooms)
with steamed broccoli and Daiya vegan cheddar cheese.
I think it's "yes"!
|Dessert: "Chocolate Mousse Frosting" from Chocolate-Covered Katie|
