I am sitting here with a nap skipper. Finn was not having it with his morning nap so he’s relaxing in his Rock n’ Play, listening to nursery rhymes on Spotify and grinning at me instead. Fun fact: his current favorite jams are The Itsy Bitsy Spider, Baby Shark and You Are My Sunshine. 🙂 I can’t even be frustrated with him. He cracks me up.
Remember how I shared that I chatted with Gina from The Fitnessista yesterday for her new podcast, Healthy In Real Life? Well, the episode is live. We talked about balancing strength training and power yoga, intuitive eating, my new running program, “doing it all” and asking for help as a new mom and more. I’d love for you to give it a listen!
Okay, I had not been to the grocery store in two weeks so a restock was in order yesterday. I snapped some photos of what I bought at Whole Foods to share with you for today’s post.
Let’s start with the healthier stuff first! Produce picks included…
- Yukon gold potatoes
- Delicata squash
- Kabocha squash
- Honeycrisp + pink lady apples
- Frozen sockeye salmon
- Salted butter
- Egg nog
- Chicken thighs
- Deli turkey
- Vitamin D
- Pepper jack slices
I got the vitamin D because mine was borderline low in some recent blood work I had done.
- Salt and vinegar kettle chips
- Pita chips
- Salted caramel kettle corn (impulse purchase)
- Two different kinds of whole bean coffee
- Multi-seed bread
This should easily get me through this week and the weekend along with what I already have in my pantry/freezer. The only thing I didn’t get that I wish I would have was a head of red cabbage to make my braised red cabbage recipe. Boo!
I might make some kind of a soup with the cauliflower! This soup from Food52 looks super simple and delicious. Or maybe this one from Cookie and Kate. Let me know if you have a favorite cauliflower soup recipe to share!
In case you were wondering Finn is now sitting in my lap as I type this post and chewing on his Sophie la Girafe teether. Haha. I couldn’t resist sharing this photo to wrap up the post. Finn was in this get up when I picked him up from spending time with his dad yesterday. It’s a gnome Halloween costume from Carter’s but I guess it looks holiday-ish? Anyway…it kept him warm! 🙂
Related, he LOVED holding that bag of pita chips and shaking it while I was shopping. Kept him entertained for a good 15 minutes.
Have a happy Wednesday friends. We have Finn’s six-month well-child visit today so wish us luck. Shots are in order and those are never fun.
