What I Ate Wednesday – Week 3

Happy Valentine’s Day all! As I summed up yesterday, we enjoyed a day full of love-themed festivities in our home today. While we enjoyed some outdoor time (it was finally warm enough to take the littlest peanut outside), we also finished some Valentine’s for Isla’s classmates at daycare and enjoyed dipping strawberries. Then we finished our day with a “red” dinner of red lentil pasta with red sauce, plus salad.

The last few weeks have brought full on teething back for Isla and feeding her has been a struggle. While thankfully her spirits have been great, these two year old molars are no joke and food she normally loves have been met with total disdain. I’m operating by the “fed is best,” motto and when worst comes to worst I’m packing her with high calorie foods and smoothies. This includes foods like beans, bananas, nut butters, avocado, oats, chia, whole milk yogurt, etc.

Meal planning has been more simple with the hope that she will eat something (really, anything!) at all. I’m barely using any recipes this week, opting instead for things like rotisserie chicken and bagged salad, and other go-to’s like eggs and chicken sausage.

Here are some photos of what we’ve been eating this week, followed by a comprehensive list of the meals gone by and to come.

aussie-bites

A high calorie snack option this week includes these Aussie Bites from Costco. One cookie = 130 calories and lots of good for you ingredients.

bagged-salad

Bagged salad for the win!

black-bean-brownies

Isla loved making (and eating) these Black Bean Brownies

pasta-veggies-sausage

In a pinch for time one evening, I threw together some pasta with tons of veggies and sauteed chicken sausage

rotisserie-chicken-salad

One of the easiest meals around here is bagged salad with rotisserie chicken or beans. This is especially great on a night when I threw together a mash up of “toddler” foods or a smoothie for Isla’s dinner.

salmon-leftovers

Here’s some leftover salmon from last week, with green beans and mashed potatoes. This ginger kombucha on the side is $4.50 off at Costco through this weekend!

One of my naptime treats has been these almonds from Trader Joe’s. These have been and probably will always be one of my favorite TJ’s items.
