How did I start my birthday? With pudding of course!
1 mashed banana, 1/2 avocado, carob powder, and a splash of almond milk all mixed together to a pudding consistency; then topped with some almond butter and pumpkin seeds. A perfectly healthy
dessert breakfast! :)
For lunch I started by making up some banana raisin pecan muffins. I basically followed the recipe but added 2 T flax seed and about 3/4 C raisins.

|Mixed by my little helper|
|Poured into my muffin cups...then topped with chopped pecans|
|baked & ready to eat!|
I scooped the center out of 2 2" slices of cucumber.
Mixed the removed cucumber with some diced tomatoes and Feta cheese.
And then stuffed it back into the "cups"
And for some protein I decided to cook up some eggs in green pepper.
Obviously the pan wasn't hot enough when I added the egg because it seeped out from under the pepper but no matter...It was still delicious! :)
Now doesn't that look like a good Birthday Lunch?!?
After lunch we were going to go to the library because they were having a special Dinosaur program that I thought sounded fun...But it was just too nice out to stay inside. A quick change of plans later we were at the zoo!

|For some reason this shark was just swimming in circles?!?|
Don't worry some others swam straight and we were able to pet them. :)
|Yes, we go all the way to the zoo just to play in their play ground. :(|
|This girl loves the snakes!|
|It was the baby giraffe's birthday too!!|
|Jumping on the rope bridge is SO much better than actually seeing the Rhinos, lol!|
|"I'm princess of the world"|
She's never seen Titanic but loves to paraphrase it. :)
Rather than spending buku bucks on questionable snacks I threw a couple pears in my purse. Easy to eat while walking around and both of us LOVE pears! A total win. :)
|The baby elephant...he's so cute!|
|The Bear. :)|
I thought the sleeping Red Panda was cute too. It sorta reminded me of Katniss trying to sleep in a tree in Hunger Games...but she needed a rope to insure she didn't fall. This guy was doing it on pure skill. :)
Once home I delayed making dinner as long as I could in the hopes that Hubs would get home and buy me something. But alas, I finally had to give in and make...
Nachos! Hey it was my Birthday and I like them...Even if I do eat them ALL THE TIME. lol!
Chips topped with salsa, green pepper, black beans, corn, spinach, nutritional yeast and a dollop of greek yogurt. :)
