This month has been a particularly busy one for me, but we’re ending it on a fun note. First, with a visit from my mother-in-law, and then with a Labor Day trip to celebrate our son’s first birthday! Seriously, where has this year gone. I can’t believe he’s going to be one year old!
With guests in town and a trip on the horizon, our meals have been a mish-mash of cleaning out the fridge and take out– which has been a nice change. After finishing up my last round of recipe testing for the cookbook, I’m looking forward to a long weekend of not cooking!
Below is a peek at our eats this week.
We kicked off our morning with a fresh vegetable juice made with carrots, romaine, kale, celery, apple, and lemon. Our little guy has started sharing a few sips of my green juice with me lately, so that’s extra motivation for me to make it more often!
A little later I had three eggs scrambled with some fresh spinach– an quick and easy way to stay full for a while.
My mother-in-law has been joining us in the afternoon to help with our son while I work this week, so I whipped up a big batch of my favorite Quinoa Pasta Salad for us all to enjoy for lunch. It’s always a crowd pleaser!
I snacked on some apple slices while whipping up a “pudding” for our son in the Vitamix. (He got a blend of apple, avocado, and frozen mango.)
For dinner, we headed to Whole Foods for an easy take-out meal. We each built our own salads from their salad bar, and mine was a combination of romaine lettuce, steamed beets, carrots, marinated cucumber salad, goat cheese, and chicken. (I added my own homemade salad dressing when we got home.) This combination was SO good.
