I’ve skipped the typical What I ate Wednesday posts for a few weeks, so I thought I’d jump back in today and share what my pregnant eats look like.
This time, the third trimester has been completely different from my first pregnancy. I’ve had bouts of nausea, especially in the morning, which I never experienced when pregnant with L. Even though my appetite is strong throughout the day, it’s really hard to figure out what sounds good. The foods in our cupboard or refrigerator are rarely appealing. Neither is most of the food that I make!
I’m tempted to eat at the Whole Foods hot/cold salad bar every day and stop for ice cream every night. So I cave into both of those about once a week, but otherwise I’m making it work.
Here’s a typical day:
Egg wrap with avocado (and mozzerella and tomato when we have them) – this is one thing I can count on to appeal to me.
Leftovers are the easiest option for lunch, like this ratatouille over polenta. Last week I ate a lot of leftover lasagna, and this week it’s been ratatouille or baked potatoes and salmon.
Confession- on a blah eating day, I will occasionally snack my way through lunch… for example, tortilla chips with string cheese and guacamole + a rice cake with pb and raisins + some dark chocolate or some other odd combo that doesn’t leave me feeling all that great!
Last night we made Chicken and Shrimp Jambalaya in the crock pot and thankfully, it hit the spot! I linked to the recipe in Sunday’s workout recap and meal planning post.
I’m usually looking for something in the evening, but it’s reeeally hard to make this a healthy choice.
I’m not a cereal eater, but cold cereal sounds good at night. Or ice cream! So that’s what it’s been… lately it’s Barbara’s Multigrain Spoonfuls (reminds me of Life) with almond milk. And any kind of gelato or ice cream will do!
Do you have an eating confession? Ever graze your way through lunch?
What are your go to summer eats?
