Most often I am a 20-something urbanish chick, with a penchant for happy hours after hard week, but occasionally, I am a nanny. It’s epically hard to try to eat well while watching someone else’s young children. 5 Year olds don’t want to eat what adults eat, so it’s usually an endless parade of Mac ‘n Cheese, Grilled Cheese, Pizza, Chicken Fingers, Fish Sticks, etc. This past weekend I was a full time caregiver to an awesome little 5 year old dude, and his parents were kind enough to ask me what I ate so they could stock the fridge. The resulting weekend meals were a mix of kid and adult food…
Veggie Sandwich with Mac & Strawberries
Hummus, Cucumbers, Lettuce, Tomato (coulda really used some dijon)
Little guy gets up at 6:30. Times this pic by three
Flax-iful Waffles become…
REALLY Flax-iful waffles w/ Peanut Butter, Bananas and MORE FLAX
I was lucky enough to get to try these gems
Holy Cuss this was good… Looks like the “real thing”, no?
I had to remove Curious George and the Man in the Yellow hat before partaking…
Dinner last night was pretty typical, plus a yummy salad w/ avos
Now it’s back to the real world…busy week ahead with 2 volunteering nights (I think I forgot to mention I was placed with the Literacy Coalition and am a GED Tutor!), a work dinner, a dinner with friends on Thursday.
