…. To grandma’s house we go!
With the Husband at a work conference all weekend, I decided to drive us over to Grandma Jojo’s house for the weekend. We’ve been doing nothing but eating, playing, and relaxing.
(Oh, Maggie – you’re the best!)
I hardly every do ‘daily eats’ post anymore, but I actually remembered to photograph all of my meals today! It must be because Jojo is constantly hustling in the kitchen – I try to help out, but she’s always got everything under control.
So – here are our delicious eats at Jojo’s house.
Breakfast: Eggs and Gluten-Free Cinnamon Chip from Great Harvest.
And a banana while supervising Henry go up and down the slide approximately 1 million times. He has perfected his dismount!
For lunch, my auntie Cherie stopped by.
Lunch: A lentil and egg sandwich with spinach and hummus. Plus chips and more hummus. And fruit.
I scrambled the egg with lentils to make it all stick together. It was good! A yummy alternative to a tofu or tempeh sandwich.
Snack: Almonds and soy milk.
During the afternoon, MomHTP’s fiancé Dwight stopped by and brought over his juicer. Check this thing out! It’s over 40 years old, and it’s still going strong.
It’s a centrifuge juicer, which means it spins the produce to juice it (as opposed to my juicer, which masticates the produce). Dwight said it was the ‘Cadillac of Juicers’ when he bought it. I believe it, considering it still juices away!
Side note: Anyone have any thoughts of the concept that you shouldn’t combine vegetables and fruits when juicing? I only recently heard about this… I tried doing a veggie-only juice today, and to be honest – it wasn’t very tasty. Fruit makes it yummy!
Snack: Celery, spinach, and carrots
And last, but not least, Aunt Cherie and Uncle Johnny came back over for dinner. It was a grand spread!
Dinner: Tofu, quinoa, roasted veggies.
I wish I could say that I eat like this every day, but it’s usually more sporadic and not half as healthy. I’d love to eat that many fruits and veggies every single day! Guess it’s not so hard when you’re on vacation at the happiest place on Earth. <3
What was the best thing you ate today?
