Happy Wednesday, folks! Itz a splendid week, wouldn’t you say? The weather here in St. Louis has been unbelievable lately. Cool mornings, warm afternoons, sun shining, blue skies, a hint of fall in the air, but itz not quite here yet.
Fall into good habits by always eating breakfast. Your momma told you, you’ve read it before, you know itz true – so just do it already! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! I always eat a rather large breakfast packed with protein and nutrients. Like this peanut flour pancake.
Topped with fresh strawberries, bananas, and a drizzle of maple syrup. Mmm! Lunch has been more of the same: rainbow salad.
Not quite as pretty packed in tupperware, but still a satisfying lunch. Just can’t go wrong with tons of veggies, pinto beans, and tuna with a homemade avocado, plain greek yogurt, and lime juice dressing.
Yesterday was a jam-packed day: morning workout, meeting before school, school, coach soccer practice directly after school, get home at 6:30 hungry and wanting dinner stat. Lucky for me, my hubby took care of dinner last night and had it waiting on the patio table when I got home. We started with a salad.
Then ate a big-oh-bowl of whole wheat pasta mixed with ground turkey, peas, broccoli, and red sauce. Easy, tasty dinner, for sure.
Funny story: I took pictures of my bowls when Jonny was still inside preparing his own bowls. Later at night, he asked me if I liked dinner. I told him of course, and he replied, “Oh, well you didn’t take pictures, so I figured my meal wasn’t good enough.” Silly boy, don’t you know your wifey always takes pictures of yummy food? Shortly after this conversation, he pulled out a carton from the freezer for dessert.
You better believe I snatched that bad boy so fast to take a
bite picture! Ben & Jerry’s Strawberry Shortcake Frozen Yogurt – highly recommended. And possibly a fall staple.
What is your fall staple dessert? I have not yet hopped on the pumpkin bandwagon for fall. No worries, next time I head to the grocery store I’ll be sure to pick up a can or four.
