|"I'm crashing the WIAW party this week!"|
As for today's food, you may notice that it's looks a little different than it has in the past because my day is totally different. Instead of getting up at 5 AM to workout, get ready and go to school (I'm a teacher), I sleep until about 7:30 or 8:00 when Avery gets up and then my day starts from there. As a result, I eat a bit less, and the times are a little less structured.
Let's jump right into my gluten-free, vegan food for the day, and join me this week to see what my 13 month old ate (besides her usual multiple nursing sessions!).
|8:00AM Breakfast: Chocolate Ice Cream Smoothie|
Chia seeds, hemp seeds, raw cacao powder, rice milk,
2 frozen bananas, 5 frozen strawberries
|Avery had some organic strawberries for breakfast.|
She loves these things right now!
|Of course she had to wash it down with some of my Chocolate|
Ice Cream Smoothie!
|Then while playing in the living room, we were greeted by|
this bird that was determined to try and get in our house!
He just kept hanging out on our windowsill and flying up
against the window. Thanks for the entertainment little guy!
Workout: 1 hour yoga with "The Skinnygirl Workout" with Bethenny Frankel.
|Post-workout snack: 1 banana|
|12:30 PM: Check out this fancy lunch...sike! Just leftovers.|
Kind of a random combo: Vegan Garlic Cream Cheese pasta from
Vegan Food: More Than Tofu and Sprouts, steamed broccoli with Cheddar
Dayia cheese, and Vegan Pizza Quinoa Casserole from Peas & Thank You.
|Dessert: Chocolate Chip Blondies (actually made from chickpeas)|
from Chocolate-Covered Katie topped with this sugar-free,
|A fork and bowl always excites her at lunch.|
|"Do you guys know about this popcorn|
stuff? It's awesome!"
Then we played with our front door. Yes, you read that right, we played with our front door. She's really into doors right now and she loves to open and close them over and over, and over again!
|"Oh, it's just me!"|
|3:30 Afternoon snack: Rudi's Multigrain gluten-free|
toast with organic strawberry spread and Earth Balance vegan butter.
So she joined me for a piece of toast with a little strawberry jelly too.
|"I love toast!" (See that bump on her eyebrow, well that was|
some "door fun" gone bad. Sometimes she's a little too strong
for the door!
|"I also like watching the dogs outside."|
|Just hanging out with my girl.|
|5:00 Afternoon Snack #2: "Chocolate Vanilla Smoothie": vanilla |
coconut milk, Chocolate Sun Warrior Rice Protein Powder,
spinach, 1 1/2 frozen bananas, 3 frozen strawberries
Avery got several sips of this too.
|6:00 PM: "Green Juice" (apple juice + green powder)|
Then we headed over to my parent's house to watch The Bachelorette (a weekly must for us!). Any other Bachelorette fans? Who's your favorites right now? Post below.
|7:00 PM Dinner: Sol Cuisine Original Burger.with|
Vegan BBQ Baked Beans and Alexia Waffle Sweet Potato Fries
|Dessert: Oops, I did it again! Another frosted Chocolate Chip Blondie|
from Chocolate-Covered Katie. What can I say? I'm on summer vacation!
|You know Avery loved this dinner.|
|"Beans and sweet potatoes, my favorite!"|
|Then she headed off for a walk with her Grandma|
|...and I got to work on getting this post ready for you!|
