What did you eat today?

post #1 of 323
Thread Starter 

I'm really curious to see what everyone is eating and how it's affecting how they feel. I totally don't mean for this to be a diet/food log type of thing, or a place to monitor weight,  just friendly sharing.





Grilled cheese with tomato and arugala, small salad (out)


Second lunch/first dinner:

quinoa and veggies (Trader Joe's) and leftover pork burger patties


About to eat:

Plain Wendy's spicy chicken patty

Baked potato with harvarti slice


snacks/MS cures:

ginger chews, preggie drops, green apple, a saltine



I waited too long after brunch to eat and I felt crappy even after I ate the quinoa and pork. I feel like if I wait too long to eat, I get sick, and then the whole day I am not feeling well. Bleh.

whole grain cereal



tuna melt made with greek yogurt and mustard (genesis bread) with spinach and onion


steamed veggies and brown rice


Beverages: water and orange juice in an icy mug


Feel sick mostly all day, but eating frequently does help some.

I've been eating terribly, because I only eat what I know I can keep down. Today I've had:




Mahi mahi

A few green beans

A baked potato with cheese


That's it!

post #5 of 323



coffee with Tbln of coconut oil and some coconut creamer

Green smoothie- mixed greens, banana and clementines

Amy's Vegan meatloaf, mashed potatoes, peas/carrots

Motherhood tea with soaked goji berries

Kosher Hot dog, corn and tater tots

Cup of Panda Puff Cereal with almond milk

1 cup of ice cream

Water through out day.


I felt pretty poorly most the day, but I think that was lack of sleep from night before. It was not a good day and I'm actually shocked that I ate as much as I did.

Banana at 2am

Bowl of (gross!) Chinese Corn Puff Cereal with Skim Milk (in bed) at 7am 

Banana and Peanut Butter on Whole Wheat Pita w/ huge glass of iced OJ at 9am

Turkish variety platter with Bread (hummus, carrot salad, cucumber, and potato salad), and two slices of Turkish Pizza with  a can of Sprite at 12noon 

Sprite to get me through 'til after work at 4pm (gotta think of a better snack here! I just get so busy!)

3 slices of cheddar cheese at 5pm 

Shrimp, Broccoli, Bok Choy and Mushrooms, and Tofu/Green Beans (all delicious!) and a piece of (gross!) Chinese cake at 6:30pm

Bowl of Rice Krispies and Skim Milk (in bed) at 9pm


Gotta get the Sprite out of the diet and add more protein. :)  But the peanut butter/banana sandwich trick is saving my mornings! Just figured that out this week.

Yesterday my food was like a pregnancy cliche:

Eggs and toast

Ben and Jerry's for mid-morning snack (small bowl, fwiw)

1/3 jar of pickles

2 servings salt and vinegar potato chips

3 chicken wings

decaf latte

green smoothie (kale, oj, milk, and 1 cup frozen fruit)

sliced yellow peppers


I felt so gross before I managed to workout, so I'm going to try to avoid doing that again.  Today I started with eggs and sprouted grain toast and a decaf latte.  Now I am mowing down a spicy tuna melt and a side salad.  Hopefully I can try to eat a little more consistently healthy.  My husband is really pushing the importance of fish, so I have to unlearn my sudden hatred of salmon. 

post #8 of 323

I am just now starting to feel a bit queasy and am not too happy about it!  

So far today I've had:

2 spoonfuls of almond butter upon waking

water w/ probiotic

ginger ale

egg & cheese biscuit


oat cakes with hummus

leftover roasted sweet potatoes w/ spicy aioli from last night

a carrot

a small hamburger patty and a bit of tomato soup


dang I really need to eat some greens!!!!  Too bad anything green is making my stomach turn right now.  Usually I can eat a big green stir fry for breakfast.

Breakfast: egg & cheese sandwich on english muffin, OJ

AM Snack: whole wheat wrap with herb & garlic cheese & spinach, cut into "wheels" and a string cheese, clementine

Lunch: egg salad sandwich, pickles, Doritos, clementine


My m/s seems to be passing, and today I've been starving!

post #10 of 323

Today the only thing I wanted was a Subway sandwich (I forced myself to eat some yogurt, too). Oh man, these cravings are so weird!

post #11 of 323

I really like subway. I've eaten several veggies subs in the past 8 weeks. I do get them with cheese though, so I can get some protein.

post #12 of 323

I've actually been craving tuna subs from Subway, but I wasn't sure if the listeria problem could be passed to the tuna (after they cut a sub or something).  So far, I've been making my own.  Somehow though, it never tastes as good as when someone else makes it.  eyesroll.gif

Bowl of cereal with milk. (8am)

Three gluten free toasts with cream cheese and two hard boiled eggs. (Half at 10, half at 12:30)

Almonds (3)

Whole foods shrimp (4)

Sweet tea (4:30)

Mashed potatoes and broccoli with cheddar cheese (6)

Gluten free breaded chicken tender (6pm)

And a yet to be decided evening snack...or two


The only time I felt bad was starting at 2:30 when I missed the two hour mark.  I was at the park with my boys and stuck in a conversation.  Luckily I had a bad of almonds in my car to tide me over until I got the sushi. 


post #14 of 323

Whole grain wheat cereal + icy mug OJ

homemade black bean and veggie quesadillas + a few dabs of greek yogurt

apple, yogurt, and a few walnuts

leftover black bean and veggie quesadillas + a dab of greek yogurt

some whole wheat mac n cheese but instead of butter/milk mixed with only greek yogurt for extra protein and creaminess 


All I really want all day long are fried things and chips.  

post #15 of 323

Sol y Paz, come cook for me!  I love quesadillas.  That's actually a really good idea.  I love beans, cheese, veggies, and salsa, so if we just get some tortillas....


AFM, today I had two slices toast and two eggs, a pomegranate, an orange, and some salt and vinegar potato chips.  We're hopefully going out to dinner tonight where I'm going to get some catfish.  Deelish!   I did a five mile walk with my mom today, so I'm treating it as a kind of cheat day.  I should have eaten more earlier, but I took a nap and then went on that walk.  Need to squeeze in some more veggies.  Thankfully, I've started craving them again. 

post #16 of 323
Well so far a Berry smoothly, cheesy bacon soup, and 2 fruit leathers. I'm hungry now but nothing looks good...
post #17 of 323

Hmm...not very much. Cereal for breakfast, a couple of bites of leftover ham from Christmas and a cheese breadstick for lunch. Eating is tough...

post #18 of 323

I got a veggie subway sub today since Aimee mentioned subway. I seem very susceptible to the foods mentioned on any of the threads. lol.gif

Now I'm thinking veggie quesadilla!


I've had a green smoothie

cup of Panda puff cereal

handful of seeds and dried fruit

Homemade dried fruit (apple and mango)

steak, salad, potato,

a lot more sugar than I should have in various forms of candy. (Sheepish.gif)


I've actually felt pretty good today.  I really don't think it correlates to what and when I'm eating though. I've really tried to be mindful of that, to see if I can help myself feel better, but turns out if I feel crappy, I feel crappy. And often eating makes me feel a lot worse, no matter what it is.

post #19 of 323

A slice of cheese and chicken pizza for breakfast

French toast for lunch

Gummy bears and a chocolate breakfast drink for snack

Barely any of my ham steak and mashed potatoes with saurkraut


I can't seem to eat a lot of food at once.  I just feel really uncomfortable and full afterwards.  I was sitting in a German restaurant up in the mountains after attempting to eat my kassler with my pants unbuttoned eyesroll.gif

Yesterday I kind of ate like crap and paid for it.

I ended the evening eating a bean burrito and chips and a bunch of yummy homemade salsa my friends made, but I was kind of in agony and sooo bloated when I got home. Bad idea.


Today I 'vehad an English muffin with Peanut Butter and Co's honey peanut butter.

Have you guys had their peanut butters? All natural and soooo yummy, I was into the Dark Chocolate Dreams pre-pregnancy but for some reason chocolate doesn't appeal lately.
