A Day of Michigan Eats

by HEAB on August 9, 2010

Yesterday I happen to take photos of everything I ate, and so I thought I’d share all my eats with you since it’s been a while.

Breakfast consisted of 1 egg scrambled with 2 egg whites and some cheese alongside a toasted cinnamon raisin English muffin, one half topped with whipped cream cheese and the other half with Trader Joe’s unsalted peanut butter. I love any kind of cinnamon raisin bread. Such a great combo!


It turned out to be a nice day, and so CD and I drove to up to Petoskey, MI for a little exploring. Such a cute little town!

Our first stop was American Spoon where I sampled their popular cherry peach salsa.


Check out the cherry chunkage. Delicious!

Next up, we had lunch at a little, but very busy coffee shop called Roast and Toast where I ordered the turkey and avocado club wrap…and I’ve decided I need to eat more bacon + avocado sandwiches. As much as I love cheese, I’ve been overdoing it on the dairy, and honestly who needs cheese when you have big slices of avocado?!?


Then per several native Michigan resident’s recommendations, I tried some Michigan fudge.


I ordered the smallest piece of chocolate peanut fudge available, but I could only eat a few bites of it. As tasty as it was, I could just feel my teeth rotting. Fudge tastes like nothing but pure sugar to me and is way too sweet for my taste buds. I think I prefer my butternut squash version instead. :)

After walking all over town, CD and I headed down to the bay and enjoyed some lovely views and a little reading.




We walked around the shoreline a bit and then drove back to Fife Lake, the little town where we’re staying. Once we got back home, we were both hungry. So, CD decided to clean out the fridge and make a pot of chili. He just made the recipe up on the spot, and it was so good – definitely HEAB Recipe Page worthy!


CD’s Almond Butter Chili. Please click here for the recipe.

After dinner, I cooked a small bowl of rolled oats in water, and ate it with 1 melted square of unsweetened Baker’s Chocolate and a spoonful of peanut butter…my favorite dessert. :) Post oatmeal, we took the pups for a 30 minute walk and then settled in the for the evening.


So, there you have it folks – a day in the life of pregnant HEAB. I guess I should mention there was much water consumed in-between meals. I rarely drink beverages with meals as I’ve read it’s bad for your digestion. Not sure if that’s true or not, but I never even think to fix a drink with my meals anymore. Kind of weird since I never ate anything growing up without a glass of something or other in my hand. What about you? Do you drink with your meals?
