Breakfast was crustless quiche, fruit (I had an orange and W had a banana), raisins and fresh made juice (we put apples, kale, raspberries and a pear). Lunch was poached eggs, bacon, left over sweet potato pancakes and W had some left over baked beets and a pear for snack right after lunch. I have never seen him eat so much! For supper we had mustard glazed chicken thighs with cauli-rice (shredded cauliflower fried in coconut oil) and steamed green beans.
We managed to get out of church without the snacks after. W really wanted to stay but I told him we were in a hurry so we couldn't (not completely true but he loves the cookies they have after church). I was starving too so I really did want to get going. On the way home he told me he doesn't like special food anymore.
Today I made up some of the spice mixtures for the recipes this month. My house smells delicious! They are in containers and labeled. I feel like the only things in my cupboards right now are spices and canned salmon/tuna.
My husband comes home tomorrow and things are always harder to stay on track when he is home. He has been very supportive of our decision to make these changes but I am not sure how he is going to like it. We also have 2 international students staying with us for the weekend. I am sure some boys will be sneaking out for fast food. Wish me luck!
W and I went for a great, chilly, early morning run. Well I ran while he sat back wrapped in a nice warm cozy blanket looking at books in his jogging stroller. I don't know what I will do when he is in between being old enough to run with me and too old for the jogging stroller. I am lucky that A loves to run with me.
I bought an ice cream maker for our Kitchen Aid mixer today. I am so excited to try it out with coconut milk and fresh fruit. we also picked up a cute little food cutter that cuts fruit into flowers. W is pretty excited about it.
I had a talk with W today about his school snack tomorrow, he seems ok with not being able to have fishy crackers tomorrow and he helped me pack a special snack. He chose to have raspberries and olives with some vanilla coconut milk. His behaviour today seems to be better. I think he is listening better but it could have nothing to do with the food and just be a good day. We will see how the rest of the week goes.
I feel like I ate too much crap today between eggs, bacon and chicken thighs I feel like I should go to the gym .. lol. It really is harder than I thought to have no grains in my diet. My body is feeling great and I have had energy but my brain wants to have other foods. I think W is actually doing better with it then me at times.
Honey glazed chicken thigh, cauli-rice and steamed green beans. It was really good!
W helped me shred the cauliflower. I was not sure about this but it turned out really good. the recipe called for fresh cilantro but I am not a fan so I ate it with just some black pepper.
