Sometimes the hardest thing about a blog post is actually coming up with a title. Today I simply was not able to come up with the title, so this is a titleless post…
I found some time yesterday to read my many copies of the Whole Living magazine and it was a true wake up call. I’ve been struggling for a couple of weeks now to start eating wholesome and healthy. Making the right food choices has been difficult. But somehow reading the Whole Living magazine really helped me start today the way I used to with a green monster and not a croissant (which by the way is sitting in my bread box – hoping that someone else in the house would eat it).
So the breakfast was a fantastic green monster smoothie topped with rolled oats. I was so focused on my breakfast [read: busy getting ready for work day and getting Mili-Mali ready for the day], that I completely forgot to take a picture, but I did take a photo last night of all the ingredients all ready in the blender 😉
Lunch – a sandwich full good, actually great stuff – multigrain bread + roasted turkey breast + roasted pepper hummus + orange pepper + spinach + avocado + pepper jack cheese – it was delicious!!!!
And than dinner time came…the chef prepared lightly breaded tilapia, steamed mixed veggies and sweet potato fries. It was delicious. I had two helpings of everything, and I still felt light after I cleaned my plate. There is nothing better than knowing I ate good and a lot and it was completely satisfying and fulfilling.
The sweet potato fries were so crunchy and sprinkled with coarse salt. There is nothing better than a contrast of sweet and salty – my favorite combination.
Dessert – none today, which is so odd for me, but I think I am saving it for tomorrow when I will have a double chocolate craving….I know it’s coming, I can feel it.
It’s been a long day – Mili-Mali early feeding [she slept from 8pm last night till 3:30am and than again till 6:30am- in my book this is a great night], a long day in the office, more Mili-Mali time – this time it was tummy time and she did great, and than the usual house stuff – the least I can say – it’s bed time. I started a new book today – Happiest Baby on the Block – hope this will be a little better than BabyWise. Babywise was so frustrating and it made me feel as if I were incompetent mother. I guess it just wasn’t for us, as I think Mili-Mali has good sleeping habits and is a pretty happy baby… Don’t you agree!?!
