Before I tell you about my morning, I need a favor. I want to make a few freezable meals for my neighbors, a husband and wife with two little boys who are two and three years old. I love children but arenâ€™t sure what little boys eat! Obviously, Iâ€™d like it to be healthy; it doesnâ€™t have to be vegetarian though.
Here are some suggestions from friends on Twitter!
Comment with recipe links, please! I would love some freezable meal ideas.
So â€“ What else is going on today? Well, today is the Adrenal Stress Index test day. That means no coffee. Iâ€™m dying over here. I went through a very dramatic mini-withdrawal around 10 AM. Help.
Breakfast temporarily distracted me from a major caffeine headache:
Two whole grain waffles with 1/2 a banana and some strawberries. And a glob of maple syrup.
Then, the Husband joined me for a training ride. This was my first time actually on the bike on the street inâ€¦ months. Maybe 6 months? It took me a while to find all my gear!
We rode for 45 minutes in the city. I remember this Tips for Cycling in the Street post and your advice made me much more comfortable around cars. We didnâ€™t try to squeeze uncomfortably next to the curb and opted to just to ride in the lanes (traffic wasnâ€™t that heavy, anyway). Cyclists have a right to use the road when there are no bike lanes! It was much less scary to be more of a defensive cyclist.
I was planning to swim after, but instead, I weeded the garden for 2 hours. I pulled out TONS of overgrown plants.
And since Iâ€™m doing the ASI test today, I canâ€™t eat a few of my normal foods â€“ chocolate, onion, garlic, cabbage, cauliflower, or broccoli. I also had to specifically eat two slices of toast (I added Italian herbs) and a glass of orange juice before the afternoon test (this all has something to do with your adrenal production and saliva).
I ended up going back for a three slice of toast post gardening, but now itâ€™s time to rummage up a meal.
Thanks in advance for your kid-friendly, freezable recipe suggestions!
