Hailey is up north again this week with her dad on vacation so I am really trying hard to take care of myself. When she is gone I tend to get sad, sit around, feel icky and lethargic. Since I have been feeling better I decided to really focus on the food I am putting into my body. Just taking it day by day. What better than to do another WIAW post!
Lately I have been eating this every morning for breakfast.
Ever since Rachel sent me some awesome french vanilla granola in my foodie penpals package I have been obsessed! I found some at my local grocery store that is pretty tasty. I also tried almond butter and am in love big time. I have been having the granola with a dollop of almond butter every morning. Yummy!
I love this time of year when all the fruit is delicious and in season. I have been making sure to eat a lot of it.
Lunch was organic scrambled eggs with salsa and Fontina cheese that was leftover from fondu night.
Another snack I enjoyed were these whole wheat banana chocolate chip muffins. I threw some in the freezer last time I made a batch so they were ready for me when I needed something to grab quick.
Since I have been filling my body with actual food for the last few days I have more energy. I feel happier inside even though I miss my daughter like crazy. I am also feeling ready to start exercising. I think I will just start out walking – ease into it so I don’t get discouraged and quit. I tend to have an all or nothing attitude so I know starting small is important.
Dinner was also pulled out of the freezer. I love freezing leftovers when I have the time to cook. Turkey meatballs that I made from scratch with spaghetti sauce and quinoa.
A friend told me about the pasta version of quinoa. I have never bought regular spaghetti pasta again. It is healthier, tastes great, and Hailey also loves it. Score!
So, that’s WIAW! I just want to end this post by saying “Good job, Jaime! Keep up the healthy choices – – I know you can do it.”
