This weekend we spent time in the pool, had a family move night (at home), attended church and spent some time resting.
We work really hard during the week and need time to recharge on the weekend.
I know that we have to be careful about spending too much time in the sun and use sun screen, I even wrote about it last year, but I feel great after 15 minutes in the sun. I don’t get burned but I get nice and hot and start to sweat. Even when I have a headache, if I can go outside and relax for 15 minutes I feel so much better. Do you have a 15 minute recharge?
We did a little bit of cooking as well. Sweet Potatoes and small red potatoes, brown rice and black beans were all cooked in my Instant Pot. I shouldn’t say “we” because my husband cooked them. He does most of the cooking these days. Isn’t that awesome?
Our boys start swim lessons this week so we wanted to be prepared for the week since our schedule will be different. I know all of that swimming will have the boys extra hungry.
No matter what we have for breakfast we are loading up on delicious summer fruit to go with it. Peaches, nectarines, berries and melon!
- Triple Berry Porridge
- Multi Grain Breakfast Bowl
- Toast with Sun Butter and fruit
- Summer Berry Breakfast Quinoa
I pack my lunch when I go to the office. In addition to bringing lunch I pack lots of veggies for snacking and always eat a piece of fruit on the way home. Jim takes the boys on a “field trip” once a week and packs them lunch. This week they go to the Science Center.
- Veggie Sandwich
- Leftover Soup
- Bean and Grain Bowl
- Big Black Bean Salad
- Baked Potatoes
We still have Mexican Casserole leftover along with all of the foods Jim cooked for us. On a side note our 4 year old calls the Mexican Casserole Mess-Kit Casserole. It’s too funny.
- Veggie Fried Rice
- BBQ Cauliflower Bites with Pasta Salad and salad
- Potato and Broccoli Soup OR Potato Kale Soup
- Veggie Pasta with side salad
- Lentil Tacos with Mexican Rice and Pico de Gallo
We may not need to cook all of those dinners since we have other things already made. We have a plan to fall back on though.
What are you eating this week? I’ll try to post lots of pictures on Instagram.
