Munchkin Meals

Breakfast: oatmeal with maple syrup, bluerberries, bananas, organic whole milk

This weekend we went on our first road trip as a family of four. Even though I tried to keep healthy snacks on hand we still ate junk. No sleep, long hours in the car with a 2 year-old and 8 week-old, plus junk food makes one feel kinda, well, yucky. So since we got back on Sunday I have been craving all sorts of veggies and fruit. I just assume my toddler did too. :)

Morning Snack: seedless watermelon and organic colby cheese

I have been eating kale chips, and more kale chips, and more... I am convinced it's all in how you word things to a toddler. Call it a chip? Put some parmeasean cheese on it? My toddler will eat it.

Lunch: egg scramble with broccoli, spinach, mushrooms, and garlic scapes, parmeasean kale chips, organic ketchup for dipping

He definitely still dug out every piece of broccoli from those eggs. He really used to love broccoli. I even tried the "Mommy is going to eat your broccoli!" but it didn't even lure him in!

After nap snack: smoothie or "juice" with-get ready-strawberries, banana, raspberry, pineapple, spinach, avacado, plain yogurt, ground flax seed, and milk

I saved some extra smoothie for the hubby and he asked sarcastically "Is that it?" when I listed what was in it that day.  Hey, I've got to get all this stuff in a toddler, ad he loves these so let's pile it on buddy!

Dinner: pasta and cheese - again! With spinach, broccoli, and mushrooms
I have to admit that we had a repeat of lunch for dinner since when the hubby called to check in he seemed really excited about an egg scramble.  So when given the choice Asher wanted the leftover pasta from the night before. I thought about snapping a picture from another dinner but why not tell it like it is? Sometimes lunch is worth having again for dinner. :)


  1. we love smoothies around here. we havent tried avocado in our before though. Sounds delicious, I am trying it in my next one!

  2. So at our next meeting, I am hitting you up on how to get my toddler on board with healthy eating.
