A perfect day of eating...kind of

If you could have a perfect day of eating, what would you eat?

I would prefer a perfect week of eating, but wouldn't we all!

I was going through my most recent food photos and realized I had shots of breakfast, snack, and dinner that I could eat every day if I had to!  Well, I would probably get tired of them eventually, but, you get my point.

Let's start the day off with breakfast.

French toast with fresh fruit.  Mix 3 eggs, 2-3 tbs of milk, and your favorite flavors.  I go crazy with vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg.  Toast your bread crusty, soak in the egg mixture, and cook in a non-stick skillet until brown.

Go to work, the gym, whatever you need to do to build up an appetite.

Mix 1/4 cup peanut butter with 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt and your favorite granola (I had some blueberry flax granola!).  Nosh on a banana and bar of some sort.  Today I treated myself to an organic blueberry poptart.  This is not a regular in our house, but it was leftover from our cabin weekend, so, what they hay!

If you have not tried mixing peanut butter and yogurt yet, try it!!

Before you know it, it's time for dinner!

Homemade pesto with whole grain spaghetti!  In a food processor, blend a handful of walnuts (or pine nuts) with 1 1/2 cups of loosely packed basil leaves.  Add a handful of parmesan cheese, 2-3 cloves of garlic, and enough olive oil to make it your desired consistency...less if you like it chunky, more if you like it runny.  Experiment with this one and add more of any ingredient to get the pesto you like.  You really can't go wrong, unless you forget something!

So what do you think?  Could you eat this every day?  What have you made recently that you are loving?

Combine with a swim.  Do 10 laps to warm up, 6 laps of kicking, 6 laps of pulling, and 8 laps of alternating breaststroke/freestyle.
