A simple day at home with baby Charlotte.
My mom came to visit.
The dogs barked at everyone who passed by.
I remembered why changing pads were invented.
I did laundry.
I ate yummy food.
I worked out.
Pretty much in that order.
Here are the day’s eats!
Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Waffle
topped with Warm Cinnamon Apples
Cheesy Eggs made with
4 Scrambled Egg Whites
and 1 Slice of Kraft 2% Cheddar Cheese
Coffee with Skim Milk
Strawberries & Light Microwave Popcorn
It’s so helpful to keep cooked quinoa in the fridge! I cooked up some extra chicken breast when I was grilling the other day, so lunch was a cinch!! Oh, and I seem to be on a bit of a Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge kick.
1/2 C. Cooked Quinoa with One Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge
and 3 oz. Grilled Chicken, Salsa
Again, with the cheese wedge!

Her recipe, my picture. 🙂
I cut my meatloaf into 8 slices, and planned to eat two slices with dinner since I had the points available. I ate one slice while waiting for Mike to get home from work. It was almost 7:30 and I was starving!
I ate 10 PPV
(including the piece of meatloaf I had before I filled up my plate)
This plate of food is 7 PPV
