Eats From The Week 4

Hi everyone!

It’s Wednesday (WIAW)so let’s talk food. I’ve got another addition of my eats from the week along with a special request from my kiddos.

Let’s get to it!

Eats from the week 4 breakfasts -

  • OIAJ – I’m so excited when there’s an empty jar. And it seems like there’s always an empty jar. We like our nut butters in our house!
  • Green smoothie – I’ve been experimenting with coconut water instead of almond milk. I like it! It’s not as thick (depending on what I put in it) but tastes great.
  • Nutty Nuggets – seriously can’t get enough of them. My kiddos have even become lovers. No added sugars and with only 4 ingredients. So yummy warmed up with bananas or blueberries and of course, a scoop of nut butter.

eats from the week 4 lunch -

  • Toasted hummus and veggie sandwich + Pink Lady apple – sometimes just a plain, simple sandwich hits the spot.
  • Stir Fry Veggies – One of those days when nothing but veggies sound good. I’m on a serious mushroom kick lately (see below).
  • Lavash veggie pizza with nutritional yeast + steamed broccoli
  • Spinach salad with leftover Easter eggs and salsa – I can honestly say I’m sick of hard boiled eggs right now.

Eats from the week 4 dinners -

  • Thai Peanut Salmon Salad –ย  Had plans for another recipe but saw a variation of this and changed my mind. Definitely will be making this again.
  • Black Bean and Avocado Salad over spinach
  • Fried egg sandwich + sweet potato w/ cinnamon + sauteed mushrooms (more eggs and mushrooms of course)
  • Baked haddock with seafood stuffing + roasted asparagus
  • Mexican Spaghetti Squash Pie
  • Falafel Veggie Burger
  • Dr. Praeger’s Veggie Burgers – Hands down my favorite pre-made veggie burgers. No soy fillers and made with actual veggies. Great for a quick weekday dinner.
  • Prepping veggies for the week
  • Baked Broccoli Slaw Egg Rolls

Eats from the week snacks -

  • Chocolate “larabar” Balls + Coconut Apricot Bites – prepping snacks for the week for everyone
  • Banana toast – tastes delicious even without nut butter
  • Dates + almonds
  • Chocolate Mug Cake + PB – I was craving chocolate in a major way but I didn’t want to break from the sugar detox challenge. Made this little concoction that hit the spot – no sugar needed!

Yesterday I had a “You know you’re a blogger when…” moment. I was taking pics of my food when my kiddos asked me to take pics of theirs too. They thought it was hilarious!

A little taste of our Munchkin Meals from yesterday:

Eats from the week 4 munchkin meals -

  • Nutty Nuggets + raisins – They are both all about cereal (hot and cold) lately.
  • Egg salad sandwiches (leftover Easter eggs + plain yogurt), grapes and orange peppers
  • YoKids yogurt frozen for a cool snack
  • My little guy surprises me all the time – snacking on 1/2 a zucchini!

I try to give my kids the same foods that I eat just a variation. For instance, we had Mexican Spaghetti Squash Pie last night for dinner. I knew the kids wouldn’t actually eat a piece of the pie so I served them a deconstructed version – plain spaghetti squash, cottage cheese, black beans and peppers. It works for us because Ron and I tend to like spicy foods which the kiddos don’t tolerate.

What have you been eating lately that you can’t get enough of?

Obviously, I love spinach, eggs and mushrooms!

  1. I’m coming to live with you for a week =) Ha Ha.. seriously though, everything looks delicious. Glad your enjoying coconut water in your smoothies. Have you tried adding 1/2-1 tsp. of xanthan gum for thickening?

  2. I’m in the midst of an April eat your veggies challenge that I’m hoping last far longer than just this month. I need serious help with the veggie consumption. The broccoli slaw egg rolls look (and sound) fantastic!

  3. I’m drooling just looking at your pictures! We received a bread maker for Christmas, and our family is loving homemade cinnamon and raisin bread right now. I love bread, so making it at home cuts out all of the processed junk. Plus, the smell of freshly baked bread is wonderful! Our oldest also eats the same food we do, with slight variations when we kick up the spice. This is the way to go. It discourages healthy eating and teaches your little ones to like a variety of foods. Plus, it’s hard enough to get one meal on the table, let alone two separate entrees! My in-laws were astonished when our daughter, two years old at the time, was asking for more cous cous please.

  4. It all looks so yummy! My kids are addicted to those Yo-kids squeezers. One likes them frozen, and the other two like them plain, so I always have one box in the freezer and one in the fridge. Love that they’re so happy to eat a healthy snack! My current addiction is hummus and taboule – can’t stop eating it!!!

  6. I love the idea of serving deconstructed versions of your dinner to the kids. My son often won’t eat casserole type dishes that we love, but likes the individual pieces. Those pieces could be set aside during prep times and save me time during actual mealtimes! Thanks for the great idea ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Lentils are also commonly used in Ethiopia in a stew-like dish called kik, or kik wot, one of the dishes people eat with Ethiopia’s national food, injera flat bread. Yellow lentils are used to make a nonspicy stew, which is one of the first solid foods Ethiopian women feed their babies.-“,;
