I kicked the morning off with this delicious green juice – I haven’t been really into juicing lately, but I was craving this!  It was good.



And when everyone else woke up, I had the rest of my breakfast – eggs, spinach, and toast.  I am a total frozen spinach convert.  That stuff is amazing for eggs, smoothies, and baking.




Speaking of favorite things, Chia Seed Pudding is my new thing.   I cannot get enough of it and have been eating several bowls a day.  Not a bad thing since chia seeds are packed with so much protein, fiber, and Omega 3s!  I use the super simple recipe above to make two servings.  The key is to drizzle some maple syrup on top right before you eat it.  I want some right now…



This was one of those “I don’t know what to eat” meals.  Blueberries, pickles, tofu with aioli sauce, and a piece of celery with peanut butter.  Weird but oh well.  It hit all my food cravings.


If Chia Seed Pudding is in the fridge, I am going to eat it…


I also had some of these Roasted Chickpeas, which I had made in bulk earlier in the day.  I drizzled some cinnamon, chili powder, and honey on the beans before roasted them at 375 for 20 minutes.



More eggs!  I’m really embracing the Bradley Method philosophy of egg eating during pregnancy.  Good thing eggs are my favorite food…


And an entire bag of popcorn while watching back-to-back episodes of Parenthood, which is my new favorite show.  My stomach hurt after this…


Maggie photo bomb!


Speaking of Maggie cuteness… Look what a reader named Adrienne made for us!


It’s a little painting of Maggie, James, and Ferguson.  Isn’t it adorable?  I love how James’ ears stick out because that’s what they really do in real life.  The painting now lives in our guest bathroom; you can see what it looks like hung up here.  I absolutely love it!  She even made me a mini painting of our dearly departed Pippa; that painting is above her little urn.  <3  So thoughtful, right?  I think this would make such a cute gift – you can learn more on Adrienne’s Facebook page and Etsy shop.


What’s the best thing you ate today?

    i need to try that recipe for chia pudding it looks delicious! And Parenthood is one of my favorite shows ever. I just recently watched all 5 seasons on netflix in about a month..I was obsessed!

  • Beks June 4, 2014, 8:19 am

    Those are some awesomely easy recipes that I’m going to have to incorporate into my food prep day. 🙂
    I’ve been looking for other breakfast ideas. Smoothies and oatmeal are getting old (tasty, but not as fun as trying something new).

  • Sara June 4, 2014, 8:19 am

    I love Parenthood. Makes me cry every time. I’m so sad that next season (which will be short) is the last.

    The frozen spinach–tastes just as if you used fresh in a smoothie, right? No taste difference?

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More June 4, 2014, 8:44 am

    How cute is that little painting!! Maybe that will have to be in the new nursery? 🙂

  • Jackie June 4, 2014, 8:50 am

    I had a delicious wrap with peanut butter for breakfast, it hit the spot!

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed June 4, 2014, 8:50 am

    The only thing I’ve had so far today is coffee & more coffee!!!! Last night I had an awesome salad though. It was romaine, spinach, sliced almonds, craisins, blue cheese, strawberries, and chicken in a blush wine vinaigrette, NOM 🙂

    I love eggs too. I need to hard boil some for a quick easy bfast option for work.

  • Elizabeth {Positively Healthy} June 4, 2014, 9:14 am

    I really need to try the chia pudding! Today we had some great grilled peppers and onions!

  • Ali June 4, 2014, 9:51 am

    My husband and I have been juicing green apples with honeydew and it’s my all-time favorite. Tastes like a starburst or something!

  • Becky@TheSavedRunner June 4, 2014, 10:01 am

    I am definitely going to try that chia seed “greek yogurt” recipe! I have learned that my body doesn’t do too well with dairy, so this would be a perfect substitution for dairy. Plus it’s so easy! Thanks for sharing!

  • Laura@SneakersandSpatulas June 4, 2014, 10:20 am

    I’ve been really into sliced cheddar cheese and ritz crackers lately…yum!

  • Chelsea@TableForOne June 4, 2014, 12:38 pm

    I absolutely can’t get enough Parenthood in my life! All I want right now is to watch episode after episode with a bowl of chia pudding.

  • abigail June 4, 2014, 1:11 pm

    I have the same problem with chia seed pudding. if it’s in the fridge… it’s all over. I’m glad I’m not alone! 🙂

  • Stephanie @ Whole Health Dork June 4, 2014, 1:12 pm

    I laughed at your lunch because I have definitely been known to make a lunch like that. A little of this, a little of that, and voila.
    The best thing I had so far today was definitely a mishmash. For some reason I am having the worst cramps and needed something to eat so I could take some ibuprofen. I found some oats in my desk, mixed it with some hot water and a little milk, added in a little strawberry jam and some sunflower butter. Just that little bit of filling, warm food and then having the ibuprofen made everything better.
    I’ve been playing around with overnight oats lately, but will try out your chia seed recipe for tomorrow! Thanks for sharing!

  • Adrienne June 4, 2014, 5:11 pm

    Thanks so much for the shout out!! I love a good random lunch. Pickles are usually involved in mine too! #salt

  • RunnerGirlEats June 4, 2014, 8:52 pm

    Cute picture! Your random meal looks like 90% of the lunches I eat on the weekends…a little bit of every thing in the fridge 🙂

  • CARLA June 5, 2014, 7:45 am

    ANNND we have all that here, too.
    Im in to VITAMIX and try it!

  • Amy June 5, 2014, 8:28 am

    Congratulations! Sorry, I’m just catching up. Hope you are doing well. Also, if you ever want to chat about going from 1 – 2, feel free to email me. I’m no expert, but my transition has been pretty great and my kids are almost the same spacing as yours. I’d be happy to share some of our experience!

    • Caitlin June 5, 2014, 9:33 am

      Thanks!!! How did you ‘introduce’ the second one to the first?

      • Amy June 5, 2014, 12:52 pm

        My sister brought him to the hospital, but key was that the baby wasn’t in the room at first. So, after not seeing us all morning, we just hung out and gave him a little present from the baby (puzzles so they could keep him busy in the room). He could go look at the baby in the nursery window, but didn’t meet him until later. This was really helpful!
