Man! This week is crawling by for some reason. Maybe it’s because I’m super excited for this weekend. Saturday, the hubby and I are sneaking away for a night away by ourselves! As if that wasn’t cool enough, we are attending a wine event called “The Big Crush” in Amador County which is a lot of fun! An adult weekend with just the two of us, can’t wait!
Alas, it’s only Thursday… The one plus about that is Grey’s Anatomy is on tonight!
Today I’m linking up with Brittany at A Healthy Slice of Life for Munchkin Meals. This week we’re focusing on an entire day of eats for the Love Nugget. That’s a lot of food for this little guy!
For as much as he eats, you’d think he’d weigh a little more than 23 pounds but that’s it! I’m pretty sure he has my husbands speedy metabolism. Lucky guy!
Here is a day of eats for this busy little guy.
Breakfast – Green smoothie, sweet potato pancake, and cottage cheese mixed with applesauce.
He doesn’t usually get to drink out of my cup but all his straw cups were dirty and I was being lazy. He loves this cup though!
Today was a long day at the gym so when we got home he had a quick snack before going down for his nap. He’s been loving these little granola bites I made him using this recipe.
Lunch – Spinach and cheese tortellini with corn, nutritional yeast and coconut butter along with salmon, and edemame.
It’s funny, if we got to sushi, he LOVES the edemame. At home, he picks at it, eats a few, throws some on the ground for the dog and pushes them around. They taste exactly the same!
After he had eaten all his lunch, he ate a few slices of watermelon.
He loves watermelon!
Snack – (not pictured) around 3:00 he usually wants a little snack so he’ll have some apples, celery with peanut butter or an oat drop.
Dinner – Salmon, roasted butternut squash and leftovers from our dinner last night (quinoa, butternut squash, pumpkin skillet).
I forgot to snap a pic before he started eating. He doesn’t usually wait to long after its put on his tray. He loves his salmon which I usually bake with a little of Trader Joe’s 21 Salute seasoning (salt free). Sometimes I’ll top it with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast. I haven’t given him a ton of other fish yet. We had some baked cod awhile back and he enjoyed the leftovers but that’s about it.
After he ate the majority of his dinner, he had a few chunks of watermelon. Yum, yum!
QUESTION – Does your little one like salmon? Have you tried any other fish?
