purple smoothies (grape juice, strawberries, frozen banana, frozen blueberries, flax, yogurt, tangelo), plus 1/2 slice homemade bread with sunbutter (mom), homemade bread (dad), and half bar (child)
Lunch: Costco: Mom: chicken salad wrap. Dad: pizza and hot dog. Child: pizza.
Dinner: whole wheat pasta with green sauce (cilantro, garlic, chard, lemon, and pesto from the freezer), roast chicken from Costco, asparagus, chips with hummus, guac, and salsa (friends over for dinner), Trader Joe's vanilla cake for dessert.

Breakfast: mom and dad: homemade bread. Child: cereal bar.
