It’s been a long time since I’ve posted my eats. I’ve gotten a few questions about how and what I eat while pregnant. The truth is, I don’t follow any plan. I listen to my body and eat when I’m hungry (and sometimes when I’m not–oops) and try to have a healthy mix of indulging in my cravings and feeding the baby nutritious food. Sometimes I eat more sweets than vegetables but that’s life.
Breakfast: Blueberry protein waffle with chia seeds topped with defrosted blueberries, syrup & Earth Balance butter
Afternoon Snacks: Pineapple, a TJ’s chocolate fiber bar, hot cocoa w/ whipped cream + chocolate chips and a slice of egg white vegetable casserole topped with feta & salsa (we ate lunch at 11am so there were lots of afternoon snacks between lunch and dinner at 5)
Dinner: Sushi (seaweed salad, 5/8 pieces of a Boston roll (cooked shrimp, avocado, green onion, cucumber) and 2/8 pieces of a caterpillar roll (cooked eel, avocado, cucumber)—I felt unusually & uncomfortably full really fast. I think it’s from how big and how high Andrew/the belly lie (when I sit it’s almost right under my bra line).
& at least 4 of these bad boys + 1(or more) overnight) I cannot get enough water these days. Hopefully it helps my milk supply & I have no problems in that department this time around! Wishful thinking. At the very least it’s good for me, baby & keeping away Braxton Hicks.
Everyday my meals & eats are different. Sometimes I have larger meals, sometimes smaller. Sometimes more snacks, sometimes less. Sometimes less vegetables, sometimes more sweets. In general I try to eat a good balance for myself & for my growing babe.
