Today is a very special day, but before I talk about that it’s time to share a sneak peak at my food journal from yesterday. I am linking up with Jenn and the What I Ate Wednesday crew to share most of my “eats” from yesterday.
Yesterday morning I got a 5am wake up call from Ava after barely sleeping all night because Cooper was up coughing with his doggy bronchitis. The first thing I did when I walked downstairs was get Ava some milk and heat myself a cup of coffee. I figured I had some time extra time so I sautéed some spinach & mushrooms in olive oil & made some hash browns plus 2 eggs. I am so glad I made this because it was super tasty and we all enjoyed it!
Shortly after breakfast I headed to the YMCA. I had 3 clients in a row and then immediately after I had to take Cooper to the vet so I’m glad I my snack was portable. I ate 2 shakeology Fudge balls in the car and a banana!
The vet took a little longer then expected and my dad had offered to pick me up a salad from Cosi (no refusal there!) I had a salad with pistachios, roasted red peppers, cucumbers, grapes & Sherry Shallot Vinigarette dressing. It also came with some delicious whole grain bread. YUMMMM.
Some baby carrots made there way in to my day too.
For an afternoon snack I wanted something refreshing and satisfying so I quickly made a kid friendly Yogurt smoothie that Ava and I split. It was Dannon plain yogurt, almond milk, pineapple & a handful of spinach.
She clearly stole it from me. I also snacked on an apple & string cheese.
I have been on a sausage kick lately and Al Fresco Chicken sausages are packed with flavor and super simple to whip up. I decided to just chop everything up and throw it on one plate with some eggplant, red peppers & sweet potatoes. This was a perfect meal to have before boot camp because it wasn’t too heavy.
Post Boot camp I had a Chocolate Protein Shake (shakeology) plus some strawberries & watermelon on the side!
I had bought a big watermelon at the store the other day and I’m guessing it will be gone tomorrow the 3 of us can’t stop eating it!
Before I end this post, I wanted to say Happy 4 year Anniversary to my husband Marc. I could have written a whole separate post about our anniversary but I’ll keep it short and simple.
Marc, time with you is my most precious resource. Our anniversaries remind me to be grateful about our past and hopeful for what we have in store for our future! I love you!
If someone could make your meals for you would you eat healthy? I would absolutely eat healthy and having someone choose what I ate would be even better!
What’s one food or meal you have been loving lately? Clearly we have been loving sausage of any kind!

I saw sausages at the farmer’s market yesterday that were made with different wines… now I wish I’d bought them!

That’s so interesting about the sausages, you should definitely go back and get them
