Onto the past couple of days of eats:
- Paleo Pumpkin Pie Muffins with strawberries
So yummy and such a great pumpkin pie flavor!
- No Oat Oatmeal with leftover butternut squash
Such a good combo!
- Cheesy eggs
Enjoying his cheesy eggs!
Perfectly balanced lunch!
- Egg whites in a mug over a bed of spinach, topped with tomato, avocado, roasted pumpkin seeds and pasta sauce
This is still one of my favorite things to eat for lunch!
-For Keenan: Homemade mini pizzas on a sandwich thin with pasta sauce, chopped chicken and cheddar cheese
Keenan loved his pizza!
A new batch that Keenan and I made yesterday!
- Crock Pot Pork and Apples with roasted butternut squash (sorry, I forgot to snap a picture!)
So good, thanks to my husband for preparing!

We met a friend and her son (Keenan’s best buddy!) at The Bounce Spot in West Sacramento this morning for some play time, since it was raining. The boys had so much fun bouncing, climbing and going down the slides. It was the perfect activity for a rainy day, and it only cost $5.00, not too bad! Though it was a little far out, it was well worth it and something we will definitely do again. Keenan definitely burned off some energy this morning, because by the time we got home, he was tired (rather, cranky) and quickly ate his lunch and went down for a nap (a successful morning in my book!). It is time to get ready for CrossFit, for my last WOD before my competition on Saturday. Tomorrow, I’m just doing a little bit of cardio and then I’m off on Friday. So far (keeping my fingers crossed), my piriformis and rhomboids are feeling good! Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday! Questions: What have you eaten today? What is your favorite slow-cooker/crock pot recipe? I’m looking for some new ideas!
