What I Ate Wed 3-12-14

You’ll never believe that we all slept in until 11:30 am today (Tuesday).  Really, it was monumental.

Here’s how it went down.  I got up and got the oldest off to school, got the babies formula and medicines.  Beckham wouldn’t stop screaming, so he went in to lay with his daddy.  They both fell asleep, and Sawyer fell asleep in time-out, so I went back to get in the bed, and I fell asleep.  And no one woke up until 11:30.

Whew!  All of that to say, I have no breakfast picture!  We slept right through it, and I’ll take that.  It was awesome.

So, we start with lunch.

My mom gave my husband an awesome Panini Grill for his birthday, so we tried it out.

After two uses, we know it’s incredible & will make life much easier! It also has flat plates that can make a griddle.  I’m so excited!  No more waiting forever to cook ONE pancake at at time!

This is our signature sandwich with Ezekiel Sprouted Bread (which DOES contain sprouted gluten–if you’ve followed my story, you know my body can digest sprouted gluten very well, so I eat this in a pinch), spinach, tomato, avocado, cheese (we were out of goat cheese, so this is Organic Raw cow cheese which we eat VERY sparingly), hummus, Vegenaise, and Dijon mustard. I paired this with organic strawberries (which taste AMAZING by the way!)

We were actually running around like crazy today preparing for another out of town trip, so I didn’t have much in my fridge!  I didn’t even have the ingredients to make a smoothie!

I hate to admit it, but my afternoon pick me up didn’t come from my green smoothie today.  Candy had to do the trick.  But not your regular nasty candy.  The good stuff.

If you have a sweet tooth & need a candy fix, try this brand Surf Sweets (found at Earth Fare).  Sugar is sugar, but this candy is organically certified and non-GMO certified.  There are NO artificial colorings or flavors.  This is a great alternative for Easter baskets and special treats!

Andrew and I had lots of errands, so we stopped for dinner at Farmhaus. I love eating here because I can still stick to my normal plan!  I had an Organic in-house-made veggie burger on a homemade gluten free bun with some toppings (local lettuce, local tomato, grilled onions, and mustard). Yummo!

If you live in the Augusta area, definitely keep this as a great option to eat out!

After dinner, our date continued at Earth Fare to get groceries (any chance to grocery shop without kids, and I’m in, even if it means that’s our date!).  We had fun walking around & picking out foods!

I knew I wanted a treat, and was trying to make a better choice than the Bakery, so I picked up this little tart.  Wonderful ingredients!

Dessert

I ate it really fast……because it was amazing!

I actually prefer days where I’m eating mostly salads and smoothies, but some days, it just doesn’t happen.  But, no matter where I eat, if I’m on the go especially, I still try to make the best choices I can make in that moment!

This was a different kind of day, but I love when you get insight to all kinds of days, not just the ones full of salads and days at home!
