I know! I can't wait to go grocery shopping with DS tonight :).  Lots of fun and quick ideas!

GREAT thread! notes.gif

 

Things I like that I didn't notice listed:

 

- berry smoothies with kale

- prunes and walnuts

- oranges, sliced up, with almonds

- hummus with a ton of finely chopped crunchy veggies mixed in, eaten with celery or whole wheat pitas

- apples/pears with cheese/nut butter

- sliced tomatoes with balsamic vinegar (and fresh mozz if we have it)

- a bunch of hard veggies, chopped and tossed in balsamic vinaigrette (chick peas work in this, too)

I've been raiding our chicken coop for eggs. I love omlettes with peppers and tomatoes. I've also been mowing down on oatmeal with fruit and maple syrup. We make pancakes nearly every day. I like mine with fried banana in them. (Make the batter in a blender - easy mixing and pouring.)

 

The other ideas have been fabulous. (Sadly, no dairy or wheat for me....just mouth watering envy at the good cheeses listed.)

Peeking in to say thanks for this thread! Lots of great ideas in here.

 

DH and I were just talking the other day about my eating. I really don't feel like I eat any more than I did pre-pregnancy, and he confirmed that my meals/snacks have been the same as they always are. I'm not sure if I'm comfortable with this (I know last time I was eating a LOT more!). But I also don't want to gain as much as I did last time (60lb). I'm not sure I'm finding the best balance yet. At 16 weeks I was at my pre-pregnancy weight (I initially lost 5lb due to morning sickness but by 16 weeks I gained that 5 pounds back, putting me back at my starting weight).

well, I can't eat oatmeal, maple syrup, pancakes, or anything other than very modest amounts of low-sugar fruit (I'm aiming at keeping total carbs per day under 150, and probably going to about 75 or less, with most of it as fiber anyway, as the placenta matures and starts to mess with my insulin function), so that sounds pretty mouth watering to me. Thank goodness I CAN eat cheese.

StephandOwen: I too haven't gained any weight yet. But I am fine with it. I am not thin and I know I am eating plenty of nutrient dense food. I also know I will gain plenty soon :)

I was at Whole Foods today and FINALLY picked up peanut butter. It has been out of the house because DH took it to work. Now I can have my perfect peanut butter breakfast (and lunch.)
