Morning guys! Happy Friday. And thank you for the breakfast ideas on Tuesday’s blog post! I’ve been really into egg wraps this week – so fast and easy. My go-to has been scrambled eggs with wilted spinach (tossed into the pan right before the eggs were fully cooked) and cheese. Yum!
A few of you have asked what wraps I’ve been using lately – they are the “Kock Your Sprouts Off” sprouted grain wraps from Aldi. So good – great ingredient list and they don’t totally fall apart on you either. As for cheese, I’ve been into Cabot’s new grated sharp cheddar (they originally sent me a sample of it, but I already bought more) – I know it’s easy to grate your own cheese but this is such a timesaver! And I love that it’s still super sharp/flavorful unlike some other pre-grated cheeses.
Another food highlight this week was this awesome shrimp salad that my mom made for me (and Riese – she tried a strip of shrimp, and had some mashed avocado) for lunch on Wednesday. It had shrimp, goat cheese, avocado, roasted red pepper, apple, chopped romaine, and a really good orange juice vinaigrette. Thanks for feeding us, mom! 🙂 I also had some cheese and triscuits that went unpictured.
As for dinners, we’ve been into tacos this week – we had homemade chicken tacos on Monday (but I forgot to get a photo), and then on Wednesday night had shrimp tacos. This was a Blue Apron meal and it was soooo good. The carrot and celery slaw on the side was fun – it was made like normal slaw but with carrot and celery instead of cabbage. Nice way to mix it up! I also loved how colorful this meal was – eat the rainbow, my friends!
As for fitness this week, I’ve done my usual long walks with Riese and Freyja. This is becoming more and more of a workout as Riese gets heavier, especially if hills are involved!
And I also made it out to a yoga class with my high school friend Joy, who is in town visiting right now. This was such a treat – great class and great company.
Time to wrap up some to do list items, hop on an AnneTheRD client call, and then start the weekend! It’s rainy right now but I’m hoping the weather will clear in time for me to take Riese on a nice walk this afternoon – fingers crossed!
Also, thank you so much to those of you who provided tips regarding pumping logistics while traveling away from your baby via my request on Instagram stories! I’m going on my first trip away next weekend (ahhh, going to miss her so much) and appreciated the advice. 🙂 If you’ve done a lot of pumping while traveling via plane, happy to hear more tips! I have a 6 hour flight so I’ll have to pump mid-flight – planning to do so at my seat with a cover because I don’t really want to monopolize the bathroom for ages. I just ordered a battery pack for my pump so fingers crossed it works okay, because I don’t want to assume there will be a plug at my seat! I’ll definitely bring a hand pump as a back up, though, just in case.
Have a great weekend guys!
