This is just an idea of some of the meals we eat here. These are not all from the same day, but it at least gives you an idea of what we like to eat and what we buy. It really does not cost a whole lot to eat things like this, that just means you buy less packaged stuff and more whole foods.
For breakfast we almost always have scrambled eggs with cheese, and if we have turkey bacon in the house we'll have that too. Then avocado if we have it as well, or sometimes oatmeal. We usually do it up big for breakfast since that is the most important meal of the day.
The lunch the day I took that photo was SO good! (carrots, grapes, apples, beets, cottage cheese) It was just a few days ago and I hope to do some more lunches like that. Although I did sneak in a couple pieces of cheese and a slice of turkey deli meat. I really do crave and need protein.
The green smoothie is something we have for breakfast or a snack. It is simply just banana, frozen mixed fruit, coconut milk, sometimes kefir or yogurt, ground flaxseed and raw spinach. Ronnie LOVES smoothies and asks for them almost every day.
What are some of your favorite things to eat for breakfast, lunch, and snacks?

This is Pearl, the kitten Ron found at his work last May. She was a tiny little thing, and was a bit beat up. We took her in and nursed her back to health. She was very scared of us (and everything!) but over time she has gotten much better. She began to follow me around the house and just took to me as her favorite. Now she is slowly letting Ron pick her up and pet her too. Oh, and the reason you can see so much skin on her belly is because we got her spayed a few weeks ago, so her fur is still growing back in. :)

A neat little shop opened up here in our town last year called Gigi's Cupcakes. She started her first shop right in Nashville, and it has grown by leaps and bounds. She has several locations in TN now, and is branching out in other states as well.
Just look at this cute little box that they put your cupcake in when you buy it! It is like having a little gift to yourself!
This is the Tiramisu flavored cupcake, it is only served on Fridays and I kept forgetting to try it out. So finally one Friday a few weeks ago I remembered! All the cupcakes are so pretty! The frosting is usually quite high and it is decorated in such a sweet and unique way. (see her website for more photos) No, these are not organic or natural, but they are very tasty for a fun treat to indulge in every now and then.
