A Quick WIAW

Oh my gosh you guys I can’t believe my little man turns two next week!

Seems like just yesterday we were taking his newborn pictures.  Time flies by so fast!

Anyways, with his birthday fast approaching I’m scrambling to get things done.  Normally I’m a fairly organized party planner but for some reason with this one I’ve been slacking just a little bit.  So… today’s post will be a quickly so I can get moving with party planning!

Thanks to the lovely Jenn for hosting!

Peas and Crayons

Make sure to head over and check out her yummy recipes and posts 🙂

Okay, a quick rundown of my Tuesday eats!

For a few months now I’ve been starting my morning with a tablespoon of Apple Cider vinegar in a shot of water followed by a cup of water.

ACV

I’m not going to lie, it doesn’t taste great but if I don’t breath between the ACV and the water I don’t  taste it as much.  Then I have a cup of coffee to rid the taste completely.

A little while lately I had breakfast with The Love Nugget.

Coffee with coconut milk, strawberries, pineapple, sauteed kale, chicken sausage a fried egg and avocado.  Hit the spot!

After a run to the gym, boot camp, my challenge exercises, and a long walk home, I came home and enjoyed my newest favorite snack.

I know some of you are probably thinking, “dairy isn’t Paleo.”  Well, I realized that I had been overdoing it on my nut intake.  So I cut out all nuts, nut butter, etc. for awhile.  I decided to add in a little healthy, grassfed, organic yogurt as a protein packed snack.

Surprisingly by the time The Love Nugget woke up around 1:30, I wasn’t very hungry.  Must be all the protein in the yogurt!  I made myself a small snack plate since we were heading out the door to run some errands.

While out running errands, we stopped by Costco for a few things and I found this Turkey Jerky I’ve been wanting to try.

snack

Even though it has a little soy, it doesn’t have a ton of other ingredients and uses evaporated cane juice.  Oh and it’s delicious!

When we got home I had a handful of ginormous cherries from the farmer’s market,

and my new favorite Kevita drink.

So good!

I munched on a few carrot sticks while making dinner.

I made Melissa’s Cauliflower Rice (Mediterranean style).   I added a can of diced tomatoes and didn’t use as much cauliflower.  It was really good!

I ended the night with a few more cherries.  So love that it’s cherry season right now!

On another note, if you didn’t get a chance to sign up for the Summer Ready Challenge we’re only on day three so there’s still time!

Just comment telling me you’d like to join in and I’ll add you to the spreadsheet.

If you’ve started, how’s it going?  Have you found it easy to squeeze in the exercises or hard?  Are you doing it all at one time or breaking it up?

  1. Please add me to your spreadsheet. Question though, how does this really work? Do I just keep you updated daily or weekly?

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      No problem, adding you now 🙂 I’ll email you the spreadsheet and once you finish your workout for the day just hop on and check it off. It’s a Google doc. so it saves automatically. Then at the end of the three weeks I’ll randomly choose a few winners for some awesome prizes!

  2. I love that flavor of Kevita! It’s the only one i have tried but I was surprised how good it tasted!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      It’s definitely become my favorite! I also like the mango and strawberry!

  3. I cannot wait for cherries to be available around here….those look delicious!

    I start my day with ACV in water too. I’ve tried it like you, but it was so bad that I now add just a touch of stevia to help cut the bitterness. Works like a charm.

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      I might have to try the stevia. Most days I can choke it down fine but some days it’s a little more difficult. Such great benefits though!

  4. Your dinner looks awesome! Thank you for sharing the link. I will definitely have to try that out with vegan sausage.

  5. I’d love to participate, please add me!

  6. I’ve been known to overdue it with the nutbutters and nuts too! Everything looks very tasty, especially those cherries. I need to get me some!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      I wish I wasn’t noticing as much of a reaction as I was lately because I LOVE nut butter!

  7. I tried that same Kevita drink this weekend, but didn’t like it…it was the first kefir drink I’ve ever had though…so maybe I need to try again?
    I’ve been doing ACV for a few months now, and love it! I had to force it for a while, but I finally got the perfect cocktail down, and now look forward to it every morning!
    All your eats look so yummy! Happy Wednesday!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      Which one did you try? The mango and strawberry are my favorite but I’ve had some that I didn’t enjoy as much.
      I love the benefits of ACV but the taste is still a little harsh on me.

  8. Time goes by way too fast. Our kids are getting big before our very own eyes. But I always insist I stay the same. 🙂 Next month I will have a 2 and 4 year old. It is crazy.

    I can’t wait to see the party pictures. I am sure it is going to be wonderful!!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      It is so crazy right!?! I’m so slacking on party planning this year but hopefully it turns out to be a lot of fun!

  9. Thank you for sharing what you eat! I love seeing it, and I appreciate you sharing healthy finds from Costco (since I shop there the most 🙂 so I can have an easier time making my healthy shopping choices when I am trying to get through the store quickly with my three kiddos. Love your blog!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      I’m so glad you enjoy my blog! I love finding good deals at Costco and seriously find more each time I visit!

  10. That breakfast looks AMAZING! I drink a little apple cidar vinegar in the mornings, too, and yeah, it’s pretty rough. It always makes my throat sting? Hopefully that’s normal? haha but I know the benefits are great, plus it’s such a small amount, it’s totally doable! Those cherries looks so yummy, you’ve made me want to get to the farmer’s market ASAP!

    xo

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      It burns my throat too 🙁 Not as bad when mixed with water though and as long as I don’t breathe between the ACV and my glass of water I’m okay. I’ve heard adding a little stevia to the mix cuts the taste quite a bit! The cherries were from the downtown market. Make sure to ask if they use pesticides or not as they are on the dirty dozen. I found a stand that said they didn’t use any sprays at all but there was probably some in the irrigation. Better than sprayed!

  11. your breakfast looks so good- and pretty! 🙂
    that dinner sounds pretty awesome too.
    good luck with the party planning!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      Thank you! Both were really good and The Love Nugget ate the dinner too which is always a plus!

  12. I’ve seen that turkey jerky and have been wanting to try it! I’m definitely going to get some the next time we are there.

    To be honest, I haven’t done the exercises. After I’m done with CrossFit, I’m completely warn out and I keep forgetting to do them. Today, I’m planning on doing them before the WOD, so hopefully that will help me remember them!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      It’s really good! They have a few other flavors as well that sounded pretty good. I think a citrus basil maybe?
      Um I’m sure you bust your butt enough with Crossfit! I so wish I could join a Crossfit gym right now!

  13. I’ve heard great things about those Kevitas! I need to get my hands on some. Look at those cherries! Amazing!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      Yes! Kevita’s are delicious! They are so light and refreshing and while I enjoy Kombucha teas, these taste nothing like them.

  14. I’ve never tried KeVita, but it looks delicious!! 🙂
    I’ve been doing the the crunches in increments of 25, but I typically do all the exercises at once. LOVE this by the way, very fun and challenging!

  15. Love Ketiva! My little one turns 4 in 3 weeks and I can’t believe it!!!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      Oh my before I know it my little man will be 3, then 4, then 16! So crazy!

  16. Please add me, I need a new challenge!!

  17. One already!! Time flies!! Loving all your eats! Kevita I want to try too! But I think no good until baby g comes , since there is a tiny bit of alcohol in there right?

  18. I sooo easily overdo it on nuts and nutbutter. I’ve been trying to watch fats a little more lately! Greek yogurt is one of my go to snacks!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      It’s amazing how much I was eating! I definitely noticed a difference after cutting them out. However, I’m adding a little back in here and there. Can’t live without nut butter!

  19. Oh my goodness that photo of your little guy is adorable! I also love Siggi’s, its one of my only other go-to brands other than Chobani and Fage.

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      Thanks Gina! I love Fage and Chobani as well but really love that Siggi’s is from grass-fed cows 🙂
