You are what you eat

A few nights ago, DH & I had pumpkin - veggie soup for dinner followed by pumpkin smoothies (YUM!). In the last 2 years we've tried changing the way we eat - just more aware of fat, calories, less fast food, more exercise.

Growing up, neither of our families would have had pumpkin soup for dinner, much less pumpkin smoothies. But we try to expand our food options and to expose Ethan to lots of fresh fruits & veggies. We plan to make our own baby foods. I can't wait to see Ethan's reaction to avocado & sweet potato (separately of course).

DH & I have returned to Wat.chers. We have about the same amount of weight to lose. It'll be interesting to see how we do - with me breast-feeding & him having the option of more exercise, (nothing strenuous for me.) Is it wrong that we weighed Ethan at We.ight Wat.chers?? I'm sure it wasn't 100% accurate, DH had to support him. Next time I'll weigh Ethan on the produce scale at the grocery store.

mmmmm, pumpkin smoothies :)

How much did Ethan weigh?

Lori said...

That soup sounds good! YUMMY!! Can I please be there to take a picture when you weigh Ethan at the grocery store! Too funny!

Kristi said...

Monica - he weighed 11.4 lbs!!

Lori - of course, you can be there, I'd need someone to watch out so no one tries to steal my Peanut.

I have a GREAT recipe for Tuscan Pumpkin White Bean Soup that is a WW recipe, if you want it!

Monica said...

OK...that is too funny! When you go to weight watchers do they announce your weight to everyone? I'd like to go but I can't deal with that humiliation. I bought some of those Lean Cuisine meals to help me lose weight. What a joke. I was hungry before I even finished eating it.

Kristi said...

Monica- no, they don't announce what you weigh, but our leader will share how much you lose, with your permission. Yea, the lean cuisine are never enough, add a salad or fruit.

Kim - I'd like your recipe.
