It’s been a couple of weeks since I have done a WIAW so I thought I would do one today. As you know I still struggle with some food issues and aversions in this pregnancy. Basically, I can’t do chicken or fish and the idea of any kind of “green” smoothie sends me running! I am working on getting in grass fed meat 1-2 times a week per doctors suggestion. My biggest cravings are carbs and cheese!! So here is a glimpse in the food that I ate yesterday… no judgement… right??! It’s all about balance!
I had an awesome 3 1/2 mile run in the morning on my treadmill. I’m loving the energy that I have to get a good sweat. Post run was this pumpkin “bowl”
Right, so what is in there you ask? Well greek yogurt, a paleo pumpkin muffin and some good ole plain pumpkin. It’s kind of a mish mosh but soo tasty! Have you started eating pumpkin yet?
I had a meeting in the morning and in between meeting 1 and 2 I had a Go Macro Bar. Keep in mind I am working on upping my protein these days since the doctors suggested a high protein diet during my pregnancy.
Once I got back to my office it was a quick lunch before the afternoon meetings began.
Two hardboiled eggs (a huge love of mine in this pregnancy) and a bowl of crock pot veggie quinoa soup that I made over the weekend!
Around 3pm I had a huge craving for licorice. I haven’t had licorice in a very long time and for the most part I haven’t craved a ton of sweets in this pregnancy but I’ve been having this craving for a few days and it wasn’t going away so before my 4pm meeting I made quick stop at Trader Joes and gave in to the craving. I followed it up with an apple… because hey… it’s all about balance right!??! I did NOT eat all that licorice pictured that was a snap shot of the container but I did have a fair amount which later resulted in heartburn and a tummy ache. Story of my life these days!
I also spotted THIS at Trader Joes but I didn’t buy because I wasn’t going home!
Yippee for another true sign of fall! Brussels sprouts are back in season!! Don’t get me wrong, I will eat them all year but now is the time when they are the best! I’ll surely be back for a stalk of those SOON!!
After a long late afternoon meeting I met the Hubs and Sara for a quick dinner out. Salad and a roasted veggie flatbread hit the spot! Both had a goat cheese (another major LOVE of mine!)
Not pictured is the 1/2 dozen Tums I consumed throughout the day and the massive amounts of ice water (another big pregnancy craving of mine!)
So there you have it… eats for a day– random? Yes… Strange.. maybe? I mean it’s not like I am eating pickles and ice cream!! Right? By the way, pickles is one of the few things that I have always hated!! I will never be that pregnant girl eating pickles… I PROMISE!!
Did you have any weird food cravings in your pregnancy?
Who’s ready for brussels sprout season??!?
