What I ate Wednesday: Sept. 6th

I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend!

We had a good weekend. I enjoyed the extra day off and was able to get some "settling in" (AKA, STILL unpacking) checked off the list.

Short work weeks usually throw off my menu planning, BUT in a good way! I usually take them as a nice chance to relax a little and cook on the fly! Grace week as I like to call it!

Here is a peak at what I ate today.

Breakfast–> I LOVE Bobo's oatmeal bites (I get the lemon one at Publix, which has been on sale!). If I get up early, I usually have one with some coffee. Then when Tripp wakes up, we usually split a plate of eggs and fruit. And we had a Bfree bun in the fridge, so I toasted it and put some butter on it. Kind of like a bagel!

Lunch–> Tripp and I played almost all morning outside. It was beautiful!! We came in and I threw us together a little variety of a few of my picks and a few of his picks. Chicken with Primal Mayo, celery, carrots with hummus, apple, cheese, olives, asparagus for Tripp, and avocado.

Dinner–> We are having zoodles with roasted potatoes and chicken meatballs. Since this will be up BEFORE then, here was last night's dinner plate 😉

And here is a peak at some of what I have prepped for the week. Publix pre-cut veggies are amazing shortcuts. I got Brussel sprouts and rices cauliflower to help me out a little.

I also threw a whole chicken in the InstantPot… and you know it, made back to back broth batches to round out the process.

Happy Wednesday, y'all!

 

Tripp’s Plate Tuesday: Everything Cold

Happy Tuesday evening! We have had one busy day! But Tripp and I really enjoyed a cold lunch. Part 1 was a green smoothie and part 2…


A plate full of cold stuff! Cucumbers, carrots, pepperoni, yogurt, purple chips… and a pickle

Homemade fermented pickle 🙂

Did I mention we had to water flowers?? Tripp also watered me. Ha little stinker turned that on me so fast. I was trying to sneak a picture of him watering the pink flower… then he sprayed me!

Anyways! I've got a big batch of broth going. I'm weird and love the smell… it's just so comforting! I'll slow cook this overnight then add more bones and new water for a second batch (pressure cooked) then again. Hoping to knock out 3 batches… stock the freezer time!! Although drinking it cold on a hot day is actually really refreshing!

Don't forget if you're looking for a better way to clean and faster, check out Norwex. I'm hosting a party through a friend and have an online link. Do know that when you shop that link, not only does it help me score some sweet hostess gifts (hint hint stuff for another blog giveaway!!) but it'll help my friend too. AND it will be another way to support the switch to safer movement. Here's the shopping link… just click here!!

I used the Envirocloth to wipe down some of my stainless today and I literally told Tripp and Leo to just admire the shine!! Ha. I was amazed. I really do use that cloth for everything. If you're wondering what to try first, I would say that!

I've got a recipe to share tomorrow!! I'll also try and snap photos of what we eat tomorrow for a What I Ate Wednesday post 🙂

Good night!!
