I am excited to share with you my first WIAW! I love to see what other people are eating for ideas and inspiration. I hope that I can do the same for you. Here is a look at my day:
What I ate Wednesday #1
I woke up early with my little love bear z. She had her milk and I had my favorite protein smoothie. It was delicious and made me feel energized.
Next up I heated up a cup of chai coconut coffee while we snuggled and watched cartoons. I love the idea of having something warm after my cold smoothie. The black thing is the Chai tea bag. Doesn’t look very good but it is.
I few hours later I was craving a little snack so I went with my favorite… almond butter and a banana. It totally hit the spot and keep me running after my two year old until lunch time.
Not quite as hungry for lunch so I had a little chicken, asparagus and yam. Another power combo and quick and easy to throw together because we had leftovers. (we love leftovers)
Dinner was chicken stir fry which is my go to dinner with a side of carrot slices.
And I always want something for dessert so I had my latest cookie ball creation. Little z and I are obsessed so we each had 2. Recipe coming soon. Here is a different cookie ball recipe to hold you over!
I felt pretty good about every bite!

Have you jumped on the raw cookie ball craze? What is your favorite?
Do you love almond butter and bananas as much as I do?
Sunday morning we all got a chance to sleep in which is a rare occasion when you have a little one (and/or a dog). Daddy snuggled with little z and gave me the chance to whip up a healthy breakfast. My sweet husband requested French toast so here is what I came up with.
FRENCH TOAST PANCAKES
1 farm fresh egg
1 egg white
1 tbsp coconut milk
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp chai & flax seed blend (optional but very good and has coconut and cocoa)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Lightly scramble all ingredients in a bowl, Heat a frying pan to medium heat and grease with coconut oil. Pour egg mixture into pan and cook until easy to lift and flip with a spatula. The egg mixture is thin so use a smaller pan and allow it to spread to the edges. Top warm pancakes with bananas, vanilla expresso almond butter(soooo good), coconut oil and/or syrup drizzle. Eat it with a fork or roll and eat like a burrito. Enjoy!
I used the same recipe for little z and f (my husband) but added a slice of Ezekiel 4:9 Cinnamon Raisin Bread. The bread is amazing on its own but I was glad to add the extra protein from the egg mixture. It was a success.
Here is a peek at the rest of the weekend:
We planted our first flower of the year, took the dog for a ride and found a spot to practice on her bike. Looks like our dog is helping little z with her skills!
What was the highlight of your weekend?
