Brandon took the day off today to spend with the fam. In the morning he took Jeremiah with him to a networking meeting and they ate breakfast there. They took a few date balls with them and a banana-nut muffin and ate eggs at the meeting. Jeremiah said it wasn’t even tempting to eat the other foods there, especially since him and his Daddy were eating healthy together. Shiloh, Levi and I ate a few eggs (I ate 5) and a couple of apple muffins.
We went on a field trip to the Destrhan Plantation Heritage Day when they got back. The weather was sooo beautiful, it was really nice to be under those enormous oak trees and enjoy God’s creation. Jeremiah gave a speech reciting the Battle Hymn of the Republic while violins played the song. He did a great job. Here’s a couple of pics of our day:
As we ran out the door to the festival I remembered that we needed to bring a lunch! I hurriedly pack some ham, chicken, butternut squash fries, trail mix, chicharrones, and figs. Everyone loved it! (Although, of course, I forgot to take a picture. Bummer.)
Every Tuesday we normally make pizza for dinner because we go to Alpha at church and the kids are served pizza there. To not make the kids feel awkward we’ve been bringing our own healthy pizza. On the last Tuesday of our whole30 we ALL decided that we should bring a dinner that is not like pizza at all, to really be in the spirit of what the whole30 is all about. Jeremiah offered to make us tuna salad, his specialty, and it was great!
Day25 kids dinner: Jeremiah made everyone tuna salad…and tomatoes, carrots, prunes and cranberries sprinkled with coconut flakes, and a pumpkin
cupcake with coconut icing. We covered all the food groups and it tastes delicious!
Day25 dinner: Tuna salad on a tomato! My most favorite easy meal. We also had a pumpkin muffin and prunes.
