WIAM: A Day of Eats


I’m usually up for the day between 3-4:30 am so breakfast is always by the moonlight

3 egg whites + 1 egg scrambled in coconut oil & seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic powder & turmeric. Roasted sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts and a fruit salad. Plus 2c unpictured coffee with coconut milk.

Mornings are the best time for me to do things around the house, like clean the kitchen, put away dishes, get everything ready for the day. The older boys play and watch tv and kyle usually is content hanging out in the swing or on his activity mat. At about 8:30/9am I have a morning snack.

2 hard boiled eggs + 1/4c mixed raw cashews & almonds

After preschool dropoff for Jax, we head to the gym. It’s raining so today’s run is on the treadmill. After a 1/4mi warm up, I knock out 4 miles of speedy intervals before cooling down with a 1/2mi walk.

Lunch takes place in the car on the way back home for showers.

After showers, we head to preschool pickup. We always go early so we can play on their awesome playground. Kyle falls asleep in the ergo and i chase an overtired, thus overly giggly, little boy around the playground. We get Jax and head home for naps. I make a snack to eat while nursing Kyle.

A sliced apple drowned in almond butter and sprinkled with cinnamon & coconut flakes.

After the boys wake up, they play in the garden while I clean out and vacuum the car. Eventually we head back inside so I can finish making dinner before daddy gets home.

Dinner is fantastic! Pork carnitas over spring mix, broccoli slaw mixed with cilantro, lime juice & homemade mayo, carrots roasted in ghee (insanely good!), broiled orange bell pepper and topped with avocado, salsa and more lime juice. I literally kicked my plate clean.

After dinner I cleaned the kitchen again and began kyles bedtime routine. I nurse him to sleep until the older boys go into their rooms for books, then slowwwwly transfer him to his pack n play and stealthily sneak out to the nursery to read big brothers to  sleep.

The end!
