A Day of Eats

Here we sit at Monday again!  I hope it's a beautiful and sunny where you are as it is here. The temps are still pretty cool, but after a pretty drab and sunless winter, I welcome the sunshine!  I'm just coming off a 3 day hockey tournament weekend; the last of the season and finally have some time to post a day of eats.  I took these photos last week so it's about time I get on it!

I find that I've been mixing my breakfasts up quite a bit lately.  If you've been reading for a while you'll remember that I ate oats every. single. morning for years.  These days oats are reserved for weekend mornings.  Not sure how that happened, but it did!  Through the week I've been enjoying GF toast with PB & jam, waffles and this Nature's Path Coconut Chia Granola with Almond Breeze Coconut Almond milk:


 So, so good!  You know I'm crazy for coconut!  LOL  I try to eat some fruit in the morning, say around 10-10:30 as a light snack.  These grapefruit sections in a little cup have been going down real easy the past few weeks:
I love me some grapefruit but am so lazy about actually peeling one for myself!  I just hate all the pith and usually can't be bothered which makes these "all the work is done for me" cups perfect!

I still hit the gym on my lunch hour, but that has switched up, too.  I use to be all cardio, cardio and more cardio, but since I injured my back last May I've been focusing a bit more on stretching.  My time in the gym is usually split like this; 25 mins either walking on the treadmill or the elliptical, 10 mins of light weights and 15 mins of stretches.  My body appreciates the variety!

On this particular day I went out for lunch with my boss.  On my plate was a roasted red pepper & goat cheese sandwich on GF bread with a side of the best ever sweet potato fries!
Most afternoons (while at work, anyways) you can find me sipping a hot tea.  This Stash coconut mango is a regular in my tea rotation:

Lastly, dinner!  My kids love pasta so I'd say we eat it once a week for sure.  I always make myself a gluten free noodle, but the sauce is the same for the four of us.
These were rice noodles, but I like corn and quinoa versions, too.  Parmesan cheese and lots of hot sauce are a must on any pasta dish of mine!

Those are all the photos I took although I can pretty much guarantee that I also ate either an Activia yogurt or a handful of corn tortilla chips before I went to bed!

So there you have my eats for a day!  I'll been getting a post up soon about a little DIY that we tackled not too long ago.  For now, here's a sneak peak:

Bye for now!!!

**I wasn't asked to review any of these products.  All have been bought with my own money.  The opinions are mine, as well!**

  1. Good to hear from you! Those grapefruit cups look very convenient! I don't like peeling and dealing with grapefruits either...

    I'm curious to find out what the DIY project was!

    Have a great week!

  5. I have still not tried that granola, which is a fail on part, because I might like coconut as much as you. Glad to see you have some time to post again!

  7. You know, come to think of it, I stopped eating oats everyday too and now resort more to cereal! Especially with that almond/coconut milk around! So good!

  9. Your breakfast looks fab! I've been getting into almond milk recently and it is just SO tasty :) I'm a fan of Stash teas, too - I usually have one every afternoon.

    Can't wait to hear about your DIY project!
