WIAW: Fall Foods… Bone Broth and More

Happy Wednesday-

I’ve got a jam packed day ahead of me and I’ll be even happier when I am back on the couch tonight when it’s over.  This week has been incredibly busy but it should slow down after today and then we have a 3 day weekend!  Yippee for sleeping in past 5:30 for 3 WHOLE DAYS!

Let’s get this food party and WIAW started!

I skipped the workout yesterday because I had an early morning meeting and decided that an extra 30 minutes of sleep was far more important!

I can feel our entire house getting ready for cold season and extra rest of essential for all of us!

I wasn’t feeling great once I got up and moving but almond butter and toast sounded good to me for breakfast!  Now that my favorite almond butter is back at Costco my almond butter sandwiches have returned to my diet!  I practically lived on these during the first trimester and they are still a favorite of mine!

Snack time was celery and hummus.  I’ll admit I have gotten a little lady and haven’t made my own hummus in awhile but I found these awesome single portion organic hummus packages at Costco and love them.  The ingredient list is simple and clean and it’s the perfect snack!  It also prevents me from going overboard with hummus!

Lunch was a much needed bowl of Oh She Glow’s 10 spice cashew cream veggie soup.  Although I love everything I make our of her cookbook this is one of my favorite recipes and I am excited to have a nice stock of it in my fridge for the week.

Dinner was….the return of TACO TUESDAY!  Can’t beat an afternoon playdate… a house full of girls and dollar tacos!  I didn’t get a chance to take a pic but it looked just like this!  I love my veggie tacos and guacamole!  I think the Hubs is a bit happier now that I have slowed down on my taco consumption… I practically needed veggie tacos or some kind of Meixcan food daily for a few weeks during the first trimester.  It was a bit insane.  Thankfully for all of us my food choices and requests have expanded.

Given the fact that it’s only a matter of time before we have colds over here I finally decided to take a stab at making Bone Broth (homemade chicken stock).  It’s been very easy and I wish I would have done this before!  I used this recipe from Danielle at Against All Grain.  I froze the chicken to use at another time and look forward to loads of healthy goodness!

  1. Bone broth is so nutritional that if it came in a pill pharmaceutical companies would be broke.

    Good on you!

    Cuuuuute school pic! I’m amazed how early they’re taking school pics this year. Ours were the 2nd week of school. Wait: bone broth=chicken stock?? How did I not know this? I’ve made chicken stock plenty of times but the term “bone broth” grosses me out. Hahahaha!

      I know— it’s truly chicken stock but adding the apple cider vinegar brings out all the health benefits in the bones- I used it last night to make white chicken chili! Easy and great for all of us.
