Okay, so I think I need to start drinking coffee. Yes, I said it. Anyone who has been reading my blog for awhile knows I don’t drink anything with caffeine in it on a regular basis. Yes, there are those occasional situations where I may have a Starbucks, caramel macchiato, but that’s about it. I must say right now I feel as though I am dragging. I have been exhausted this week and we have been sleeping pretty well, so I am not sure what is going on. Actually, maybe it’s simply the fact that I have four little ones, yes I think that may be the answer. Ha!! And I must tell you my biggest reservation about drinking coffee isn’t the coffee itself it’s the fact that I only like it all jazzed up and I don’t want to use all the “fake” coffee creamers everyday. I have found a ton of healthy options to put in my coffee on pinterest. One of these days I am going to give those a try.
Anyway, it’s Wednesday so it’s time to talk about what I have been eating lately. Well at least what I ate today. Thank you Jenn for hosting.
Peanut Butter Protein Shake – I think I told all of you this a couple weeks ago, but I figured out our mornings are much smoother when I eat/drink something before the girls get up. This way I don’t have to try to feed myself before getting out the door.
Once, we got back from the bus stop I made us some Greek Yogurt Waffles and turkey sausage. I must tell you McKayla and McKenzie love sausage, no seriously they ate so much of it and kept saying, “mo, mo” (more).
I’m sorry my picture taking pretty much didn’t happen this afternoon; McKenzie and McKayla were very cranky (they haven’t been feeling well).
I made one of my favorites; a poach egg on an English muffin paired with a few sweet potato tortilla chips. I must tell you these are addicting. I
always most of the time count out my chips before eating.
My mom made a batch a Ghirardelli brownies and bought some to us last night so I had one of those. The perfect little treat.
I was hungry again so I ate some turkey, carrots, and hummus. The perfect afternoon snack. This way I don’t mindlessly munch on junk.
Steve had lunch at Buddies Pizza with his dad yesterday so we had leftover pizza for dinner and it was delicious. I must say Buddies is probably my favorite.
Steve, surprised me with one of my favorite sweet treats; a caramel and m&m covered marshmallow from the Rocky Chocolate Mountain Factory.
