Just a quick, quick little post for you. I’ve been trying to get back in the morning run habit, but I think the hardest part is forcing myself to go to bed earlier. There are just too many things I would rather be doing- catching up on OITNB, reading, showering, actually having an adult conversation- y’know, the stuff that’s impossible to do during the day.
This morning Jack complained that his tummy felt “weird.” And then he didn’t really eat much lunch, but my mom came over and we decided to take the kids to Monster Yogurt. Well, he eats a few bites of yogurt, plays on the playground for a while, then walks out and throws up EVERYWHERE. On the floor, on his feet, on my pants, on the chair… it was awful. I ran him into the bathroom while my mom flagged down an employee about the mess (sorry, Monster Yogurt guy). Thankfully he seemed to feel better after that and hasn’t had any episodes since. Knock on wood.
Moving right along…
On Sunday I cooked and shredded a bunch of chicken breasts in the crock pot. I was flipping through my Seriously Delish cookbook on Monday and found a recipe for smoky chicken salad with pineapple, AND I had all of the ingredients on hand: shredded chicken, Greek yogurt, smoked paprika, cumin, pineapple, green onions and sliced almonds. So I whipped up a batch and had that for lunch, along with plantain chips:
I love chicken salad, and this one is particularly great because it uses Greek yogurt instead of mayo- so lower fat + more protein. And I promise that you won’t miss the mayo at all. I can’t find the recipe online, but you really should just go buy the cookbook. It’s one of my favorites.
Ok 10:30… can I squeeze in an episode of Orange??
