Linking up with Peas and Crayons for What I Ate Wednesday.
Here was Monday’s eats:
Morning Juice Ingredients (which I had to re-arrange when I realized the first arrangement (with the cuke and carrot perpendicular to the bag, between the two round fruits) looked rather, uh, male)
The Juice. I hadn’t juiced in a few weeks, but felt the need for an instant energy fix after a rough night with my sick little guy. The juice did it’s magic and had me feeling almost normal and ready to face a day of kid chasing.
Breakfast a couple of hours later was steel cut oats topped with bananas, coconut and pecans.
I snacked on some Hail Merry Grawnola while writing my review and giveaway. Good stuff.
For lunch I turned leftover Cracklin Cauliflower from Peas and Thank You into a curried cauliflower soup. I added some vegetable broth, a splash of rice milk and half of a (leftover) boiled potato and blended away. My husband has an almost instant gag reflex to even the smell of curry powder, so I have to consume my RDA of curries during lunch.
It made two of these bowls and I ate both.
I had a afternoon snack of a banana-almond milk-coconut smoothie. Which looks awesome atop an Elmo placemat.
For dinner I made pizzas. The kids had a cheese pizza which they barely touched. Nice. The husband and I did our usual his and hers pizza. He had chicken apple sausage with peppers and I had spinach, goat cheese, pine nuts and red peppers. We ate the whole thing. Nice.
Looking back, it was a pretty appliance heavy day. I used the juicer, rice cooker (to cook the oats overnight), Vita Mix (twice), Kitchen Aid (to make the pizza dough), stove top and oven. No wonder I felt all dishwashed out that night.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my eats. Go enter the Hail Merry giveaway and come back Friday for another giveaway.
