During the summer, I moonlight as a nanny. It is not that far of a stretch from my real job as a teacher, but it is a nice change to spend time with elementary-age kids.
Today I watched the twin boys I have been with for the last five years. I needed to be there by 8:00am and didn’t get home from the dog park until 7:30 – eek! After a quick shower, I packed my swimsuit and breakfast and drove to my “job” while eating a banana.
Breakfast at 8:00am
Major WIAW fail – no picture! But I think you have all eaten or tasted these ingredients and thus should be able to envision this filling breakfast: Flatout wrap, scrambled eggs (one whole and one white), a little cheese, spinach, black beans and avocado. While in Chicago we ate breakfast both days at Corner Bakery, and I ordered the Power Panini with spinach and avocado both mornings. I was inspired by this breakfast sandwich and have eaten it every morning this week. In my attempt to cut some carbs, I use the Flatout wrap which only has 16g, but I think for net carbs you subtract the grams of fiber. Whatever the carb count, it makes my belly happy for longer than normal.
Lunch @ 12:00pm
The boys made plans to meet a couple friends at the pool. Rough life for me. The boys are old enough to be on their own; they just check in with me every so often. I sipped on a light lemonade and water for the two hours at the pool.
Snack @ 3:30pm
While the boys ate their dinners of mini-corn dogs, string cheese, sugar snap peas, and chocolate milk, I snacked on a little watermelon.
Dinner @ 6:30pm
Because I ate an earlier than normal dinner, I will probably have a snack; I am thinking something with peanut butter.
Thanks to Jenn for hosting this virtual party! If you’ve never checked out her site on Wednesdays, it is a great way to find new blogs to follow or new recipes or food combinations to try.
Have a great WIAW night!
