We Are the Champions


kids:pumpkin bread + fruit

me: green smoothie


boy: pb&j, blueberries, strawberries, cucumbers, mango and celery
girl: cheese+ tortillas, mangoes, berries, carrots, broccoli, cucumbers, celery

In case you need proof that my kids eat their lunch, I present the School Day report:

My little guy is the ‘lunch champion’ for 9 days and counting.  We’re raising champions over here.  No wonder I’m so worn out at the end of the day.  Champions are demanding little things.

me: white bean+cashew spread from Eat Drink and Be Vegan, veggies

I too ate all my lunch, but there was no report card for me.  I hereby name myself Lunch Champion.  You can be one too.

Tired Mom’s Black Bean Taco Dinner

My 20 minute start to finish dinner:

  • taco shells, baked at 350 for 7 minutes
  • black beans (from a can), heated for 1 minute – sometimes I season them, sometimes that is too much effort
  • shredded lettuce+chopped cilantro+avocado+diced tomato+shredded cheese
  • jarred salsa
  • chopped fruit
  • that’s all

What is your dinner on tired nights?

    The first thing I thought when I read this was GMI truly left on impression on you – we’re Champion everything these days.


  7. My favorite fast dinner is layering whole wheat tortillas, beans, salsa, mixed veggies, nutritional yeast and pouring enchilada sauce on top and letting it bake for about half an hour. We call it enchilada pie :] It’s fast, easy and tastes good!
