Hey guys! Hope you had a great weekend!
The weather was beautiful here so we spent a lot of time outside.
Friday I had my baby shower! The girls from work wanted to wait until Jett was born to throw me a party and it was so nice to see everyone! It was such a treat to interact with people that can actually talk back 😉
Jett and I got so many amazing thoughtful gifts ♥
[I wish they made that dress in my size!]
After everyone left I hung out with Jett while Andrew made supper.
Buddah burger with Vegenaise, mustard, pickles, tomato and lettuce, yam with salsa and feta and caesar salad with lots of avocado
Saturday morning we took Jett and Beasley for a nice long walk along the river.
As Jett is getting older she is getting so much more alert and doesn’t like to be strapped down in her stroller. The past three walks we have had to take her out and carry her. She just likes to look at everything!
We spent the day shopping yesterday [Andrew needed new clothes] and went and visited with his parents and nephew Jaxon. When we got home Andrew made the most delicious supper! Andrew usually makes supper because Jett usually wants to eat as soon as she smells food 😉
ezekiel wrap with tomato paste + spices, sautéed fennel and yellow peppers, crumbled Field Roast smoked apple sage veggie sausage and grated goat cheese and a salad with spring greens, roasted pecans, cranberries, avocado and fennel and peppers with balsamic dressing
I’ve been eating the same smoothie for breakfast all week. Today was no exception:
I found the recipe on The Green Lean Bean and added strawberries like Lauren did. I looove the coconut water and goji berries in this!
After breakfast we headed to our Bradley Method class reunion! There were 9 couples in our class and now that everyone has had their babies we decided to get together and have a potluck brunch and a play date 🙂
Prego before pic:
After baby pic:
There were five girls and four boys. Eight natural births and one c-section. Nine healthy, happy babies 🙂
[Jett’s skirt kept riding up so we just let her hang out in her diaper]
After the reunion we came home and Jett and I had a looong nap. Best.feeling.ever. I woke up feeling completely refreshed – naps don’t happen here very often – and HUNGRY! Thankfully we brought home leftovers from the potluck:
quinoa mac n’ cheese with red pepper and broccoli, mixed greens with avocado, feta and balsamic dressing
And a raw chocolate macaroon for dessert ♥
It is definitely time for bed! Night!
Something about your weekend! Did you do anything fun? Eat anything delicious?? Fill me in 🙂
Holla! IT’S FRIIIDAY!!! Awesome possum. I am up waaay too early and tonight is gonna be pretty painful! Haha but that’s nothing new. I had LOTS of eats yesterday aaaaaand…..drumroll please…..
I RAN FOR 10 MINUTES STRAIGHT!!!!
One whole mile! No stops! I know that might not be a big deal to most people, but I don’t think I’ve ever ran that long before. So proud 🙂 I felt so great after!! And I’m so looking forward to doing it again!
Now onto the foooods.
B-fast was a smoothie because I had a nail appointment and I had to mooooove.
I was lurking on the Living Harvest website and found this great smoothie recipe. I halved it.
Vanilla Strawberry Banana Smoothie
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup frozen strawberries
2 tbsp Vanilla Spice protein powder
Blend it and drink it.
When I got home I decided to make some Quinoa Protein Muffins found here. All I did was change the flava of protein. (No idea why I’m so into protein powder right now. Anything to help me stay fuller longer!)
My muffins did not turn out as well as I was hoping. Mine crumbled so I stuck them together with cashew butter to have as a snack at work.
While these were cooking I went and did my run 😉 Oh and because I had made a tons of quinoa, I made some of Angela’s maple quinoa cereal. Check it out riiiiight here!. I have actually made this three times now and burnt it everytime!! This was my best attempt yet though, ha.
I haven’t actually had any of this yet, but Andrew had it for breakfast (with almond milk I think) and he said it was gooood. Win.
I took Bizzle for a long walk and it went by so quickly now that I have new songs on my ipod. I hadn’t changed the songs in 2 years!! Shameful, absolutely. But I rock out now 🙂
I had eggs for lunch! I am so addicted I have been licking my plate clean for the last three days. I mashed some blackberries instead of using jam this time and IT IS DA BOMB. I also finished up the rest of the stuffed focaccia inards (spinach, red pepper, pine nuts, feta, onion) and a piece of Squirrley bread.
I totally didn’t do Raw Food Long Change. Deferred success. So I made orange and white potato salad. Another win.
Sweet Potato Salad
3 tbsp plain organic yogurt
1 1/2 tbsp low fat mayo
squeeze of lemon juice
1/2 tsp vinegar
1 tsp stoneground mustard
tiny bit of fresh grated ginger
salt and pepper
Use as much of everything to taste.You can’t really mess this up 🙂
I made a wrap using the leftover veggies from supper the night before. I just added goat cheese and sprouts.
Blue Lagoon smoothie is next. Or purple lagoon. Whateves. Sooo good. Same recipe as before, just subbed in a cup of Saskatoon berries that we picked and froze in the summer. Now, please don’t judge the fact that it’s in a jar. I had no to-go cup. I tried to pretty the pic up 😉
Here is my lunchi all ready for my lunch kit
Oranges and the protein muffin with cashew butter make up the excess.
Look at what is in store for tomorrow!!! Caaan’t wait.
Hope you guys have a GREAT weekend! Hopefully the sun will come out tomorrow. I am on days off in T-14 hrs!!!
