E2 28 Day Challenge - Day 14

by Rachel

Whew made it through 2 weeks of the challenge! This has been really good for all of us, kids included. Paul and I were discussing how it's really breaking the monotony - monotony that leads us to go out and eat, or grab snacks all the time. I will not be cooking this much after the challenge (TOO MUCH!!!) but I will carry lessons with me from this. Also lots of new things to cook. And I will take more time to have more variety in our meals so we don't end up in a rut again...

Day 14

1404 cals (245g carbs, 20g fat, 55g protein, 56g fiber)

Lemon Cornmeal Pancakes with Raspberries
Multigrain pancakes with fruit
Used the Arrowhead Mills pancake mix we got last week instead of buying more for a different kind. Had applesauce and maple syrup on top, and mixed with bananas and raspberries it was a very nice and satiating breakfast.

Unfortunately for me, the avocados weren't ready yet! I made these up, but with no avocado, I could really tell there was something missing. Paul's not much for the wraps, he didn't really enjoy them today - I had the kids try it too but the response was no surprise :)
Next time around will try hummus instead of cannellini dip and make sure there's an avocado!

This was my first try at homemade split pea soup. It turned out pretty good - although I guess I could have let it cook even more? Not really sure, but after it sat for a few minutes there'd be a layer of water at the top from settling. I have no idea if that is normal or not.
Tasty and filling for me - kids ate it but didn't ask for seconds :)
Paul liked the soup - liked it even more after we remembered there was leftover rice in the fridge and he added it to the soup!

This was really gooey and yummy! Each of us got a 1/4 of the cobbler, and our 6yo was the only one that had any trouble with it. But, he thought it had chocolate in it because of the color, and put it in his mind that he wouldn't like it :(
