What Eat in A Day Off

If you read my post a couple of weeks ago on what I eat on a day I’m working then you should be more then ready to see my culinary habits on a day that I’m off. Warning: BE PREPARED TO GET HUNGRY.


Here we have a nice cup of jo; old fashioned oats with raspberries, blackberries and blueberries cooked in; half a banana and a scoop of peanut butter. Yum city!

I used to absolutely hate- and I do mean hate, oatmeal. But since I’ve learned to add almond extract and ground cloves; in addition to cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Plus topping it with peanut butter, I think I could safely eat it everyday. Yummy!

Mid morning Snack~

Homemade date and coconut energy balls… yummy 🤤

I made these for the first time ever the other day and I am surprised how much I like it. At a 160 calories a pop these are surprisingly filling for being so small. Not for everyone my sister is not a fan… oh well more for me!


A avocado, black been, air fried sweet potatoes coated in my sister’s super secret taco seasoning. The definition of deliciousness!

Oh my gosh! This was amazing!! So filling and delicious. A perfect combo of spicy and sweet. Highly recommend.

Afternoon Snack~

Aka the “second cup of coffee”. Alongside homemade granola(kinda obsessed right now) a touch of plain nonfat yogurt, half a banana, a drizzling of Carmel sauce and a sprinkling of shredded coconut.

A little bit of a sweet snack. I normally don’t do something so sweet… but I wanted some of my homemade granola. I needed a good excuse and it was delicious!


A classic example of a dinner cooked by me- Ha! A cottage cheese, spinach stuffed portobello mushroom; Italian chicken; cucumber, beet and feta salad. Plus whole wheat everything bread and just a touch of Carmel sauce.

Dinners on my days off tend to be a big deal for me. It gives me the time and excuse to cook and play around with recipes. Which basically equals my happy place. These simple, mouth watering mushrooms have been a repeat for me and my sister. So good.

Lots of love,

I am a twenty something year old live-in, Christian nanny. Basically a modern day Mary Poppins. If I'm not chasing around six amazing kids I'm writing my blog or the handful of novels I have going; reading (a lot), baking, eating (a lot), or going on exciting adventures. All of my misadventures I share here with you guys! So grab ahold of my umbrella, something's about to begin.
