What I ate Wednesday

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.

Clean Rhubarb Raspberry Crumb Cake

I am so excited to share with you my first post! I hope you enjoy… 

I was having a craving for crumb cake/coffee cake the other day so I decided to give it a go. I had rhubarb and raspberries in the freezer and decided that the tart and sweet would make the perfect combination. It turned out so yummy! It is moist and delicious…and the best part is that it is healthy!
