Happy hump day! Both babies are napping (finally), and I'm hustling to get things done so we can go swimming once Piper wakes up!
Here's another full day of eating (past ones are HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE). I always feel the need to say this, but this isn't a guide of how anyone else should eat. It's simply what I ate one day. Hopefully it does provide some meal/snack ideas though!
Every morning, before breakfast, I drink a cup of warm water, with the juice of one lemon, and 1-2 tbsp of raw, unfiltered, apple cider vinegar. Whenever I post this on Instagram, I get tons of questions about why I drink it. I feel like I say this all the time, but I drink it because it's awesome for gut health. It aids in detoxing and energizing the body, and firing up the metabolism for the day.
I had some leftover spiralized sweet potato I made at the end of last week, so I cooked it on the skillet, with a couple of eggs and tomato, and put them on a bed of arugula. I also added some sauerkraut (also great for the gut), and used my cheesy tahini sauce for the dressing (recipe HERE).
**The spiralizer I have can be found HERE. I use it ALL the time to make sweet potato and zucchini noodles
This is one of my all-time favourite snacks (I posted a bunch of my go-to snacks HERE). It never gets old! I love it on crunchy rice cakes, but it's also super good on toast too! I just spread cottage cheese on the rice cake, cut up some avocado, and sprinkle with pink salt.
I prepped some staples on Saturday to have throughout the week, and it's been SO nice! The instant pot is amazing, and I made separate batches of salsa chicken, brown rice, and hard boiled eggs in just over an hour! I used the brown rice and chicken, and added lettuce, guacamole, and plain greek yogurt to a bowl for lunch.
A Perfect Bar late afternoon pick-me-up. This flavour is one of my favourites! I always want something a little sweet between lunch and dinner, and this hit the spot and kept me full for a while!
