Food Lately

July 8, 2018

We’ve been eating more meat-based dinners than typical.  This is both because it seems like generally a good idea from a nutrient standpoint in pregnancy, and because I’ve simply been in the mood for meat and heavier meals more often. (I realize that non-meat sources of nutrients and protein are possible.) My weight has been right on track so far just by following my appetite.

Here are a few things I’ve made and enjoyed lately:

On the list of things to try is this and this.  I’ve been using Budget Bytes a lot lately – she has some good and easy recipes!

I have a green smoothie (spinach or kale, yogurt/milk, banana, ground flax seed) for breakfast many mornings to help keep my veggie intake up. I snack on high protein yogurt (usually Icelandic-style rather than greek), hard boiled eggs (and pickled hard boiled eggs!), almonds, and berries.  I’m obsessed with guacamole to the point that I’ve bought it pre-made ($$$$) several times. I also have made a spinach dip from this book sometimes.  There is, of course, some occasional unhealthy stuff, like ice cream, pastries, chocolate and such!

I’m hoping I can keep up good nutrition while traveling this summer, but I’m not going to stress TOO much about it.  Food options won’t be ideal and I don’t think I’ll have as much time as usual to cook and meal prep and think about what I want to eat.  Still, there will be grocery stores and some opportunity to cook and eat well.

    Girl, eat WHATEVER your body wants. I ate spicy noodle soups the entire time I was pregnant, because I craved it. Do not deny what you want to eat — eat within reason and don’t get overly big because of it, but enjoy it. Enjoy your food. Eat more meat if you want.
