Itz been a hot minute since I’ve linked up with Jenn at Peas and Crayons for What I Ate Wednesday! I thought today would be a good day, mostly because yesterday I actually remembered to snap photos of most of what I ate. But first, let’s begin with some William cuteness. He spent the day at my parents’ house (his Yaya and Pops), and clearly had the best time ever.
Itz a shame he’s not a happy baby, eh? 😉
Ok, now for my tasty food. Breakfast involved a raspberry granola yogurt bowl. (And itz the name of this post since itz literally the only thing I actually made to eat all day.)
We’ve got some plain Chobani Greek yogurt sweetened with Pure Via vanilla stevia, mixed with Cascadian Farm ancient grains granola, and tons of fresh raspberries. Driscoll’s raspberries were on sale for a dollar at the grocery store; I’ve never seen them that cheap, so I stocked up and put an entire container in my bowl. So good.
When my dad picked up William for the day, he also brought some chicken salad that my mom made. I love this chicken salad and will soon make my own batch of it. But for now, I’ll eat hers for lunch (while I pump).
My mom’s chicken salad includes chicken (duh), light mayo, dijon mustard, dried cranberries, almond slivers, celery, and apples. Itz the perfect combination.
You all know I snack ALL.DAY.LONG. and I captured most of them.
- Detour SMART bar in blueberry
- Juicy plum
- KIND bar in nut delight
- Dates with peanut butter
- Turkey slices
- Banana chocolate chip muffie (made by my mom)
Not pictured snacks included honey wheat pretzels from Trader Joe’s and fruit salad. So this was the first time I tried the whole date with peanut butter thing. I had seen it on several other blogs and I love both dates and peanut butter, so I thought why not? I was at my parents’ when I tried it and my dad immediately said it sounded weird. To be honest, I didn’t love it. I felt like the peanut butter overpowered the sweet date flavor and I couldn’t really taste the dates at all. So after one, I put the peanut butter away and helped myself to a few more plain dates.
I’ve been drinking tons of water lately thanks to breastfeeding. I usually drink an entire bottle when I pump and I pump three times at school and twice at home on working days. Usually one of those bottles includes a Cocogo packet. Use code ITZLINZ to save $$!
My absolute favorite cup ever.
I hung out at my parents’ when I picked up William, and my dad had made a delicious beef stew in the crockpot for dinner.
We had steamed cauliflower on the side.
For dessert, I had a bowl of Edy’s slow churned mint cookie crunch ice cream, but instead of showing you that I’m going to show you dessert from the weekend because there is a funny story that goes with it. It was at the rehearsal dinner of my cousin’s wedding, and the waiters were bringing dessert to the table. There was cherry pie and a delicious super chocolatey thing (I don’t know what itz called). Well, they were alternating plates of dessert for the guests at each table, so every two people had one of both. I noticed our server still had two plates left on his tray after we were served. I don’t like sharing dessert, so I begged and pleaded for him to give me my own set of desserts. Then my sister chimed in and told this young man that I was breastfeeding. Needless to say, I got both desserts and was pretty happy about it.
I devoured both. (See, Uncle Ricky? I told you this picture would make the blog!) Jonny is smiling in the background either because he’s just as happy as me that he didn’t have to share his dessert or because he’s proud of my skills to get extra dessert!
And just for kicks, let’s end with a picture of the world’s cutest baby.
Bye bye now.
What delicious food have you eaten lately?
