We had our homeschool co-op today and I usually take a lunch, but then the Babe decided to eat more than her share and of course I gave her some of my (perfectly portioned and calculated lunch). So I wound up hungry, the kids ran around a lot and were hungrier than usual and after naps wanted to snack all.day.long. It totally made me realize how important and good lunch is for me. And when the kids are snacking, I want to snack too. Thankfully I got some low point equivilants for the times they won't eat fruit or veggies and want my total fav- cheese and crackers. I think I many need to buy stock in Laughing Cow Spreadable Cheese. Here'a my free investment advice- find out what Weight Watchers are eating and buy that stock! I also found this great thread on snack ideas from, where else, Roni's Weigh.
Okay, wrapping up and here is my not-so-perfect food journal for Friday:
|cheery breakfast w/blueberries, coffee & milk||4|
