WIAW: Healthy Snacks

Hello there!

How is everyone this Wednesday? This is actually sort of like a Thursday for me because we have Friday off for Superintendent Conference Day! Ya gotta love those days. And then we have Monday off for Columbus Day, so I am psyched for the four-day weekend. To add to the fun, next week is homecoming week, which means Retro Day, Wacky Wednesday (Maybe I should dress up as a food item as an ode to WIAW? Ehhh, maybe not), spirit day, and some other day that I can’t quite remember. I’ll be sure to share pictures from the shenanigans (as our WIAW host, Jenn, always loves to say).

I appreciate your comments on my more reflective post on Monday about being more thankful for family. As much as I love getting deep and solemn, I’m ready for this post to be more light-hearted! So without further ado, here are some of my eats from this week, with the theme of healthy snacks for October!

Breakfasts

Peanut butter, pumpkin, banana English muffin sandwich with a glass o’ milk (as always!)

PB banana smoothie that was really runny. I totally should have used it as cereal sauce!!! Next time.

Kind of a weird-looking one. Rice Krispies and Puffins with milk + banana with pb

Pumpkin waffles with a dollop of Greek yogurt and pepita sunseed butter!

Lunches

I keep forgetting to take pictures of my lunch at school, but they have mostly been delicious chicken sandwiches/wraps that my mom has so kindly prepared for my dad, Ben, and me. She ROCKS.

These awesome wannabe “KIND” bars from Costco. I love them! And the ingredients are comparable to KIND bars.

Dinners

Quinoa Brown Rice blend from Seeds of Change that Mom combined with sun dried tomatoes, egg, and lettuce. Delish.
