Munchkin Meals

I have to admit, this week has seemed a bit crazy.  So to link up with A Healthy Slice of Life I had to take pictures from different meals on different days. Not because I was SO busy I didn't have time, but because I was busy enough that my brain stopped working and I would remember AFTER the toddler had devoured the meal. I'm sure the lack of sleep is partially to blame.  I hope this has happened to you too. No, just me? Great.

Breakfast: Homemade yogurt & honey with watermelon and raspberries

Yep, you read that right. Homemade yogurt. Do you know how long I have been putting that off? A long time. I've been thinking about it for two years since I read about it in my favorite baby food book. Then I learned I could do it in the crockpot. Then I got really low on yogurt and had an extra half gallon of organic whole milk in the fridge. Awesome. 

Lunch: Natural PB on NOT natural graham cracker, feta cheese crumbles, blueberries

I know, I know, graham crackers. As in the store-brand-lots-of-junk in them graham crackers. I had them in the pantry for a cheesecake crust. I am trying to go through our pantry and freezer. For the record, they were delicious and reminded me of my childhood.

Granola Energy Balls

This was a snack AND an activity since the recipe is easy enough for a 2 year-old to help with. I was out of vanilla for these but they taste great without them. I will halve the coconut the next time, but only because the hubs doesn't care for it.
Dinner: Angel hair pasta with Avocado Cream Sauce

This, my friends was amazing. I think I've had pasta on the last two Munchkin Meals but this is worth writing about. I got the recipe from That's So Michelle. It was super quick, easy, and the toddler had 3 servings. That's right, 3.


  1. Homemade yogurt? Impressive! Is it hard to make?

  2. mmmmmmmm all of that looks so good! I am ready to eat now!
    have a great rest of your day!

  3. All this food was soooo good! Half the time I'm so hungry I just eat whats in the fridge, I've got to start eating pretty things too :) hehe
