I started the day with a big breakfast (after almost cheating on the first day). I had a craving for a snack last night and almost grabbed a handful of Cs pirate booty. Instead I had some raisins. Today I am going to make Parmesan and butter popcorn to have to snack on when I need it. The challenge there will be to not eat it all in one sitting.
Anyway! The big breakfast. I wake up somewhere between 4:30 and 5:30 everyday (depending on Cs schedule). I get up, make him breakfast and lunch, get the kids ready, take my kindergartener to school, then come home and make breakfast for me and the two littles.
2 Scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese, a homemade whole wheat tortilla with Brie, and a plain Greek yogurt. Coffee and my lactation tea.
It was delicious and mostly free
Lunch is usually small with a snack in between breakfast and lunch and another between lunch and dinner.
Zucchini fritters with sour cream and Parmesan.
Raisins, Parmesan and butter popcorn
Dinner: fajitas with black beans
Grocery list for the day:
Pasture raised eggs (free, the joy of having chickens)
Hormone free Cheddar cheese ($4)
Tortilla (whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder, water, olive oil) ($8 for the olive oil)
Brie ($3.50 in the sale bin)
Plain Greek yogurt ($1)
All natural Sour cream ($1.50)
Steak for fajitas ($17.50, but it’s 2 large strip steaks that I cut into 4 meals worth of steak fajitas)
Bell peppers ($2.50)
Can of black beans ($1)
Total: $45 with 3 frozen fajita meals, popcorn, Brie, raisins, sour cream, and oil I can use for later. I call that a win!
