What The Boys and I Ate Wednesday

Posted Nov 14 2012 4:43pm

Happy Wednesday to all!

A lot of people ask me “What do you feed your kids? Do they eat the same as you?) The answer, absolutely they eat what I eat. I am trying to teach them good healthy habits. Hopefully as adults they will thank me!

Below is an example of what they eat for lunch everyday. Of course they all like different fruits, veggies, etc.  The extra time and effort is well worth it, knowing they are eating what is good for them. 


Trey’s Lunch


PB & Honey Sandwich on wheat, carrots, broccoli, grapes, Z-Bar, and an apple.

Cole’s Lunch


Pepperoni and Havarti on wheat, kiwi, grapes tomatoes, Greek yogurt and an orange.

Chase’s Lunch


PB and honey on wheat, strawberries, broccoli, carrots, Greek yogurt and a banana.

My Turn!


  • 2 Boiled Eggs no Yolks

Mid-Morning Snack

  • PB & Honey on Wheat



Here is the Recipe (makes 4 servings)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cups prechopped hearts of romaine lettuce
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) fresh mozzarella cheese, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, torn
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (2.8-ounce) multigrain flatbreads (such as Flatout)
  • 1 large garlic clove, halved

1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add lettuce and next 4 ingredients (through tomatoes), tossing to coat.

2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Working with 1 flatbread at a time, cook bread 1 minute on each side or until toasted. Rub 1 side of each flatbread with cut sides of garlic. Arrange 1 1/2 cups chicken mixture in the center of each flatbread; roll up.

I added a Salad to go with the Meat Sauce


The salad has diced pears, walnuts, dried cranberries, baby spinach and spring mix.


Today I had a much better run day.  10.2 miles at an average pace of 8:47.  Tonight I plan to hit the weights with Chris; concentrating on Back, Chest and Abs.


If you have children what do you pack them for lunch?  I would love to hear suggestions.
