Back to Work Flow

Standard

So, I decided it was time for me to re-enter the work force. That decision brought with it a slew of obstacles to my diet routine. I’ll be leaving for work while the family is still prepping for the day which meant b-fast would need to be prepped ahead of time so as  not to put any more responsibility on the girls during their morning routine. I also will have to accommodate for lunches that meet my dietary needs and are portable. I don’t want to microwave my foods so I opted for salads at lunch. I cooked up a bunch of chicken breast and put it in the fridge to make that process easier. For the kids b-fast I opted to make up a huge batch of Maria Emmerich’s Flax Waffles and freeze them for easy toaster waffles.

For myself I decided to make a loaf of her protein bread slightly modifying the recipe. Today I had that bread toasted with cinnamon and xylitol for breakfast with a cup of green tea.

That should give me enough energy to get going and hold me over until about 8:00 or 9:00 when I have my apple and nuts as a second meal.

Oh My Zucchini “Pasta”

Standard

I’ve been craving Ramean noodles and  found this amazing recipe on Maria Emmerich’s blog this week that way over exceeds my expectations for noodles without even containing pasta. I cut two type pastas because the spiral cutter was a new tool and I just had to check out the different blades. Totally gonna use this on a regular basis. It was easy enough for my 9 year old to assist without fear of her getting hurt by any kind of blade.

ImageIt was so good both my husband and I had to go back for seconds. I even let the kids see what I was making and they tried it without fear. Anna loved it and Kayla liked it well enough. I don’t think it will replace her Ramen craving, but it’s a good alternative for me.

Caught Being Creative

Anna used all of my construction paper making lanterns for a party somewhere in the future, but I’m not upset because at least she’s not stuck on television. (smile)
