breakfast

Happy Wednesday!  I missed the party last week so I’m back to participate today.  I always go a little crazy on my first grocery shopping trip after vacation so our fridge is completely chock full of yummy food right now.  I’m actually having a hard time choosing what to make for my meals because there are so many good options!  I’m glad that this records Tuesdays eats when the fridge is still full, its a WHOLE different story by Thursday or Friday when I’m scrounging up the last bits of leftovers and stuff in the fridge.

Anyways, here’s my eats!  For breakfast I had some Van’s frozen Whole Grain waffles topped with fresh blueberries.  I also made a chocolate protein smoothie with frozen banana, strawberries, pineapple, almond milk, peanut butter & chocolate protein powder.  YUM!

lunch

For lunch I had a salmon burger that I picked up from the farmer’s market along with a spinach salad and some cottage cheese.

snack

For an afternoon snack I had some greek yogurt with chia seeds, blueberries and fresh figs.  Aren’t figs so beautiful?  Its like a little surprise every time you cut into one.  They were on sale at the store so I couldn’t help myself.  I never really know what to do with them so I usually just end up eating them in yogurt.  I’m thinking I’m going to try to make a roasted fig spread with the rest of them, I’ll let you know how it turns out.

dinner

I had some leftover lamb from lamb burgers the night before so I cooked up a sauce with eggplant, lamb, spices and Trader Joe’s Bruschetta.  It was delicious! Looking forward to the leftovers today.  I served it over a brown rice quinoa blend and then we had the usual spinach salad on the side.

Head on over to Peas & Crayons to see more Wednesday eats!

 

WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:

Watching little kids walk.

kidwalk

I love watching kids navigate the whole walking thing when they just learn, its so cute its hard not to smile.  They always go through a stage of looking slightly inebriated, no I’m not laughing at them, I’m laughing WITH them! SO CUTE!!

  1. I bought some figs this week too! They are my absolute favourite, it’s a shame I can’t get them fresh year-round.
