I barely cook these days.
Pretty strange for a food blogger huh?
What can I say? Having a tiny human will do that to you. Instead of fancy gourmet meals, pretending I actually used to make those, I try to make sure my edibles are fast, easy, and tasty. Oh and they also need to keep me satiated long enough to last to the baby’s next nap and my subsequent morsel of food. Bonus points if they’re somewhat nutritious.
It’s a good thing my needs are so simple. Snort.
It’s safe to say, I live my days according to the baby’s naps, which occasionally means I eat when I’m not hungry, mainly because there’s a window of time. It also means some days I shove a granola bar or a hunk of cheese into my face with shaking hands because I’ve suddenly gone low. Nursing takes a lot of me; quite literally.
With predictability out the window, it’s fast and easy eats for me, so with that explanation in place, Happy What I Ate Wednesday, also known as some random day last week. Thanks Laura and Arman for hosting.
First Breakfast: a not pictured glass of warm lemon water, followed by oatmeal and coffee. I make my oats with a mixture of water and almond milk, a dollop of maple syrup, a splash of vanilla, a sprinkle of cinnamon, half a mashed banana, and some flax powder. I top it with the rest of the banana and whatever fruit I’ve got handy. This has been my morning staple for months now.
Second Breakfast: a Liberte yogurt along with a side of planning. I adore these yogurts. They are chock full of fat (9% I believe) and made with milk and cream. Be still my heart.
Lunch: s snack plate smorgasbord containing bell peppers, carrots and hummus, onion rye toast with butter, half an avocado, and a plethora of fresh fruit. I’m so not ready to say good-bye to peach season.
Dinner is usually the only meal where I get crafty because I can cook while the Hubby watches the baby. Of course there are days where tummy time, story telling and all that play mat action wears me the ef out, so Brinner it is; I don’t hate it.
Dinner: roasted potatoes, a leftover raspberry muffin and cheesy scrambled eggs made with almond milk, habanero cheese, salt and pepper.
And for the grand finale, several spoonfuls of peanut butter with mini chocolate chips. It never gets old.
Out of the above, which meal would you most like to have and why?
