Any interest in this type of thread? Personally, I'd like to know what you all are eating to get through the first trimester. At the same time, some discussions of food make me pretty nauseated. At this point, my curiosity and need of good ideas outweighs my aversion.
My food aversions are not too bad yet at 5 weeks, but I am getting pretty severe nausea every time I try to eat a real "meal." This sucks, because I've been really hungry for the past week. Here's what I've eaten the last 2 days:
Breakfast - 2 grapefruits and 3 oranges (grapefruits scooped out, oranges roughly chopped and mixed in). This is my staple breakfast.
A couple hours later- a bowl of peanut butter panda puffs and soy milk, then a big mug of almond milk with blackstrap molasses in it.
Late Lunch - quinoa, tempeh with garlic and kale. (This made me pretty sick afterward)
About 4 pm - a green smoothie: stinging nettles blended with apples and lemon juice.
Dinner- we went to Taco del Mar. I had a burrito: spinach tortilla, black beans, rice, guacamole, cabbage, pico de gallo.
Usually I have an evening snack, but I was too exhausted and nauseated last night so I didn't have one.
Breakfast - 2 grapefruits (I had a phone meeting and didn't have time to peel my oranges)
Mid-morning snack - a rice cake with peanut butter and apricot jam, a big mug of almond milk with blackstrap molasses.
Lunch - left-over quinoa with black beans, romaine lettuce, avocado, and TJ's veggie flax chips (I got about 2/3 of the way through this when I felt like I was going to hurl, so I didn't finish it.)
Snack - Trader Joe's cherry chocolate chip soy ice cream with a banana sliced over it.
Dinner - the rest of the romaine lettuce with the 3 oranges I missed this morning sliced over it. (I don't feel up to more than this)
I've been trying to eat as well as I can (and exercise!) while I can, as I know the first-trimester joys will be hitting full force any day now. :)
