Today we really did have beautiful weather. D and I tool advantage of the sunny day and went to the park. Before we left I made sure to have a snack so that I was not ravenous when I got home. Making dinner while you are ready to keel over from hunger is not a good thing. I had plain greek yogurt, an apple, Nature’s Path Corn Puffs and a drizzle of Sunbutter.
D had a lot of fun at the park and it was so nice being outside in the warm sunshine.
For dinner I made a big batch of roasted veggies and they were soooooo good. In the mix was a baby eggplant (it was smaller than my hand), red pepper, zucchini and mushrooms. I seasoned the veg with cumin, coriander, cardamom, turmeric, chili powder, salt and olive oil. I roasted them in a 400 degree oven until all the vegetables were soft. I had an Organic Chicken sausage and a gluten free tortilla too.
Dessert was very similar to my afternoon snack – I was in a yogurt & Sunbutter mood. I topped some Corn Puffs with plain greek yogurt, a drizzle of Sunbutter and a blob of TJ’s Blackberry Preserves.
D had a good gluten free day. I was able to get him to eat brown rice pasta for dinner and a banana. He loves pasta so I thought that the change might be difficult for him. Lunch was a little more challenging – he was being picky. He ended up having vanilla yogurt with honey, strawberries, Snikiddy’s, and 2 Enjoy Life Soft baked Chewy Chocolate Chip cookies. At least I sent him to bed with a full tummy and free of any aches.
I hope you all had a great day. I am off to relax. See you tomorrow after our babysitting shift.
