Munchie Monday: things get out of hand in the face of deliciousness

I am excited about this Munchie Monday! I am excited about this food! This week I got a little TOO excited about some of it..

I have been trying DESPERATELY to shed a final few pounds of baby weight…although I’m at my pre-pregnancy weight and my body looks NOTHING like it used to! WHAT’S UP WITH THAT? I’ve been walking, running, and eliminating some of the most delicious foods on the planet only to still have a very different body. 😦 Not ideal friends…but reality.

One of the main things I’ve been doing is staying away from carbs..not 100% but enough that it’s working. Veggies and fruits have carbs so I can’t cut those out! They are too yummy. 🙂

So this week I for some odd reason had the desire to make Adam banana bread. I love bb and I just assumed he would too. Doesn’t everyone? But why did I think it would be easy to NOT eat a favorite food. Come on girl…think. So I made this oh so delicious, moist, better than a breeze in the hot summer heat banana bread. I set it to the side but I was only fooling myself. Five totally worth it slices later I deemed that day a “cheat day”. Isn’t that what all girls do the moment they indulge and stray from their diet? 😉

Let me show you the bread…and the recipe. It is THE BEST. Maybe you should make some. (unless you’re on a diet…)


Here is the recipe. I left out the nuts..because I didn’t have any but I’m sure it would only make it tastier.

Oh, and Adam did like the bread…he ate it right up. 🙂

Later in the week I rounded up my cheating on my diet thoughts and got back to business.

That’s when I decided to make a most delicious, a lot like a restaurant but WAY cheaper salmon salad.

We all know how to make a salad but I’ll go ahead and tell you what I put on mine.

  • Lettuce of your choice, I prefer a mixture of different types.
  • Strawberries
  • Slivered almonds
  • Balsalmic Vinegarette Dressing
  • Salmon (drizzled with olive oil and a bit of freshly ground pepper and broiled for 10-12 minutes)

Put that all together and voila!

Makes me want another one right now. 🙂

Emerson also tasted something new this week.

Okay. I have never seen a baby eat these but I was under the impression they just slurp it out or something. I think I was wrong? Anybody mind telling me what the appropriate way to do this is? Just put it in a bowl?

I know I did it wrong because this happened…

He did like it though!

Anywho..that’s a bit of our week in the food department!

Happy Monday!
