These posts should really be called “What I Ate Tuesday,” but I prefer the alliteration that Wednesday brings to the title. Here’s a peek at what I ate yesterday, while working from home and caring for that cute little guy you may spot in the background.
Our son doesn’t mind the noisy blender when he’s awake, so I whipped up a smoothie using the fresh fruit we had on hand. (He sits in this chair that attaches to our kitchen counter, so I can talk to him about the fruits and veggies as I prepare our meals.)
This particular smoothie included a quarter of a pineapple and a couple handfuls of fresh blueberries, along with a chopped cucumber, half an avocado, and a handful of fresh parsley. It wasn’t the best smoothie (too much avocado!), but it was a quick and convenient way to get some nutrients into my busy morning.
I’ve been having two mini-meals in the afternoon, starting with a mixed green salad topped with soft goat cheese, steamed beets (from Trader Joe’s), chopped cherry tomatoes, and Honey Dijon dressing.
A little while later, I whipped up this Chocolate Banana Protein Smoothie.
For a little afternoon pick-me-up I sipped on a cold pressed green juice made of cucumber, kale, celery, broccoli, green apple, lemon, and ginger. I also ended up snacking on two of the cookies pictured above while shooting them for an upcoming recipe post. (They’re so good!!)
Up until recently, my husband had never tried salmon– but now that he has, he’s hooked! He requested salmon and roasted asparagus for dinner last night, so that’s what we had. I served mine over a leafy green salad smothered in more Honey Dijon dressing. I love the hearty combination of warm toppings over mixed greens.
And not surprisingly, I had a mug of decaf green tea and mint dark chocolate for dessert.
