My breakfasts have been getting bigger lately. Breakfasts are very protein based, lunch is a mix of salads+protein, and I have snacks galore with chocolate, Chex mix, and cake pops. For some reason, I’ve been eating large amounts from 7-3 and then tapering off to small dinners or no dinners at all. I think I missed more than half my dinners last week. The reason? My husband comes home from work 9-10PM and honestly, I don’t want to eat that late. I just make his meal beforehand and I just eat bits of this and that while I’m preparing.
Kyle has also been quite the handful for the past few weeks. He wakes up shrieking bloody murder multiple times throughout the night and is quite mobile with his rapid crawling. So what does that equate to? An overrun, tired mama who is surviving on broken sleep and tired limbs. Sleep > food. I hit the hay right after I see Kyle nod off around 8-9.
Due to this change, my body has incredibly shifted my food choices and eating pattern to something that’s more sustainable to my lifestyle. I need all that protein to energize me for the day. Listen to your body!
Breakfast: Egg white omelet with cheese, leftover rotisserie chicken, and a random half an avocado that needed to be eaten.
Lunch: Whole Foods. I just picked whatever looked appetizing!
Snacks: Japanese strawberry Kit Kat bar from Mitsuwa. I like the green tea one better but I couldn’t waste it, right? I just finished the entire bag in one go. 🙂
Leftover dark chocolate favors from my cousin’s wedding.
Dinner: A rare night I was hungry for dinner. I threw in tofu, yellow squash, and some leftover ground chicken into this Mapo tofu mixture. It doesn’t look too pretty but it was quite nice.
