On the day I took these pictures, Waits and I slept in (ie, woke up late – oops) (totally worth it) so our morning was all a bit of a flurry. Mornings are always sort of hectic (I will never be a morning person, never ever) but this particular Tuesday was particularly chaotic.
Waits [sort of] ate this while I threw together a smoothie and packed up the rest of his lunch. I’ve stopped drinking breakfast smoothies since they just don’t fill me up (some people swear by them and say they stay full forever – but I just get hungry an hour later), but I still love them for Waits because they’re so dang healthy, and I can add in all sorts of sups.
This mixture had full-fat canned coconut milk, kale, half a banana, a scoop of peanut butter, Sun Warrior vanilla protein powder (the BEST), blackstrap molasses (for iron), sunflower lecithin (for choline), Deva Cal-Mag Plus, and vitamin K-2. And YES, I know I need to write a post about why I supplement the way I do!
I dropped Waits off at
I worked all through the morning, mostly grading papers. Around noon I grabbed the last half of a bottle of Kevita (so not as good as kombucha!)
I took the last few sips with me when I went to pick up Waits, as a treat for him. I like to bring him a little something special when I pick him up – a date or a strawberry or something. I forget more days than not, but I do try.
I worked some more until Waits woke from his nap, at which point – juice time! He nibbled on some organic corn chips, and helped me put together his favorite juice blend.
And then we were off . . .
We had such a great time! And met LOTS of new friends, like:
After the hike we dropped Damian off and headed home for some very-well-earned grub. Dinner was easy-peasy since I had a ton of leftover quinoa from a dinner party I’d attended the night before.
For my dinner, I just melted some Daiya over organic corn chips in the oven, and then used them to scoop up the quinoa concoction. Waits is more apt to eat anything when it’s stuffed inside a cheese-covered taco shell, so that’s just what I did for him:
After dinner the night quickly degenerated, with a contentious bath time, a battle over teeth brushing, and a bed time that stretched until well after 10 pm. I totally forgot about my camera, though in the interest of honesty, I’m pretty sure I had a glass of wine once the kiddo was asleep. Ha!
