It’s been such a long time since I’ve done a What I Ate Wednesday post that I thought it was time to share what we have been eating. Jenn over at Peas and Crayons is the mastermind behind “What I Ate Wednesday”.
We try to make only one meal … for my vegan husband, my kinda picky toddler and me – nursing mama who eats meat. Sometimes it can be a challenge but at the same time it’s nice to know we are eating pretty much healthy meals. And there are some days when I am lucky enough to make a meal that me and Lilly will eat and my poor husband has to figure something out for himself. You know the British can make up some pretty
crazy strange meals 😉
This is what I have been eating – not solely on a Wednesday but randomly throughout the week.
Top left – Curried cauliflower with chickpeas (recipe coming soon)
Top right – Chicken with pesto on nann bread; massive salad with mixed greens, red pepper, snow peas, mushrooms, carrots, sunflower seeds (saltless), cran-raisins.
Middle – pretty normal and quick breakfast – Raisin Brain, Bran Buds (apparently I like Bran) and a Banana.
Bottom left – Massive sandwich for lunch one day, it was so hard to eat. Olive bread, avocado, fried egg, mushrooms, and cheddar cheese. Grapes.
Bottom right – Boring breakfast … or was this lunch??? Toast with vegan butter, two boiled eggs and a little cranberry juice.
It’s been fun making new “meals” for Lilly.
Left – Peanut butter and banana sushi wraps, a.k.a. “special sandwich”.
Right – Pink Lady Apple, Cheddar Cheese and Crackers – she split her snack with Mommy one day. xo
I try hard to eat healthy but there are days when all I want is bad food and you know what, I’m okay with that. I’ve talked about my food philosophy before but since I am nursing Hilary still, I try … really hard to eat well for her. I avoid onions, cauliflower, broccoli, and garlic on occasion since they seem to give her lots of gas but I love those foods minus onions.
I would have shared a picture of what Hilary is eating these days but I’m pretty sure no one wants to see a picture of my boobs. I can’t wait to start making baby food again! I did it with Lilly since it was so easy. Don’t worry, I’ll share my baby food tips come June/July when Hilary starts eating solids.
