  • Banana
  • Whole wheat quesadilla for breakfast and lunch (a bit of cheese, lots of black beans, jalapeno, onion, guac, and salsa)
  • dried plum
  • greek yogurt with fresh berries
  • boiled egg
  • I am not sure about dinner yet, I feel like plain tomato soup and an apple but probably should have more protein, maybe more black beans thrown in a simple salad with salsa  EDITED: I had a bunch of sushi (fish was cooked) and it was so delicious. Miso soup too.

  • bran cereal with milk and coffee
  • low fat cottage cheese
  • salad with a bowl of bean chili and piece of rye bread
  • a few pieces of chocolate and another coffee (oops)
  • strawberries
  • a huge thing of pad thai with lots of tofu and chicken (homemade)
  • a bunch of water with splashes of juice (because I get so sick of it plain)
  • another small bowl of bran cereal before bed



Im really craving yogurt, cottage cheese and lots of salads and fruit lately.. I could pretty much live off of grapes and cottage cheese the last week- so weird.


I think the food was so heavy in the US (e.g. we had almost only take out food and it was ALWAYS chinese, mexican or pizza every meal) that my body is sort of just craving simple basics now for a while.. who knows.. I am not used to so much take out food here and I just think I hit a greasy food wall..

  • 1/2 a banana
  • chips and homemade salsa
  • wild caught salmon sandwich on whole wheat with mustard, spicy hummus, spinach, jalapenos, avocado, tomato and lots of fresh fruit (pineapple, strawberries, cantaloupe, apple) 
  • tiny cup of frozen yogurt with walnuts 
  • small glass of cranberry juice for prenatals since taking them with water or tea makes me gag
  • big salad with egg, cottage cheese, nuts, cheddar cheese (LilyTiger, couldn't get cheddar off my mind since your last post about it) lots of baby tomato, carrots, bell pepper, broccoli, 3 bean salad, and spicy hummus 
  • small plain cornbread mini muffin
  • For a snack later on I think I want a bowl of air popped popcorn. I am really craving whole wheat waffles made with cornmeal, walnuts, apple, and berries and topped with a small bit of real maple syrup.  I won't go all out on that as that is too much work for one waffle but maybe if I get up extra early tomorrow I can have that for breakfast. I keep meaning to make a batch and freeze them and that turns out OK but they really taste best fresh.

Well, this morning instead of my usual 2 hard boiled eggs for breakfast, I used those 2 eggs to make myself FIVE slices of french toast.  With LOTS of butter and maple syrup.  OOPS!!!


Baby is giving me the happy dance right now...... bouncy.gif

NewMumJoy, that sounds amazing.  I'm totally dying for french toast.  Or chocolate chip pancakes.  With, as you so rightly point out, LOTS of butter and maple syrup!  That sounds amazing.

French toast sounds delicious!  I had the blueberry/apple/walnut waffles (yes plural) I wanted this morning, topped with sliced bananas and sliced strawberries.  And it is still all I want so batter belly here I come... That is funny a lot of us seem to be craving breakfast foods.

post #239 of 323

Id love the recipe for the "cranberry quinoa muffins" Newmumjoy ! Also what ratios do you use to make the chai seed jello?


post #240 of 323

Here's the recipe for the Quinoa Muffins (there's also a video on this page as well).... I made them for the first time this week - I subbed dried cranberries for the raisins and used melted coconut oil.  I also use paper liners to save from having to grease the pan.  The muffins come out dense and the quinoa gives them an interesting texture......





For the chia seed gel - a small snack size serving - I use a small container or teacup of juice (I use cherry pomegranate) and then stir in 2-3 spoonfuls of the seeds.  I let it sit out for about 15 minutes to check on the consistency and add more seeds if needed.  Then I throw in the fridge for at least a few hours so it can thicken further.  It gets less crunchy the longer you can let it sit..... I used to make this with coconut milk and cinnamon, but I like it with the juice much better now, with the fruity flavor....
