Hey y'all... My morning sickness disappeared, leaving me a bottomless pit of cranky hungry- which is good, because I'm down five pounds! But being pregnant has messed with my sense of taste and willingness to eat the same thing every day for breakfast and lunch. So I came up with a meal plan thinger, and figured since this was so much work (eww, work) and because I'm not quite sure it's good nutritionally, I figured I'd post it here and let you all see it, steal it, edit it, suggest things and what not. This past week was not so good- I just had snacky food on hand, because its what I could tolerate, at the time.
I don't like fish cooked (man do I miss sushi), and this menu plan is for two people (me & DH) so that's important to know... It's based off of the Stop & Shop's sale flyer.
Breakfast: oatmeal (cooked with milk and trail mix added in) or a (vegan) banana cranberry walnut muffin (its http://caloriecount.about.com/vegan-banana-muffins-recipe-r954174 this recipe, with 3/4-1 C cranberries and 1/2 C walnuts substituted for the almonds and raspberries.
morning snacks: apple, pistachios, orange, strawberries, yogurt
Lunches: Hummus & veggie sticks with string cheese, chicken salad (from leftovers) sandwich with spinach salad, leftover pork stir fry, fruit salad, spinach salad with egg & avocado.
afternoon snacks: string cheese, veggie sticks, hummus & crackers, walnuts or pistachios
Dinner: Orange 1/2 chicken, mashed potatoes & mix veggies, Pork with snap peas and rice, chicken skillet meal (leftover chicken, egg noodles and veggies with some sort of sauce), Pork tenderloin with mustard sauce, hassleback potatoes, veggie.
This leaves my husband to come up with two meals, one of which will most likely be "lets visit my parents." I love them, and not just because they feed me. Wednesdays are just me for dinner, so I'm not sure what to eat then. Most likely an omlette.
This is intended to cook half a chicken, and one pork tenderloin cut in two for two meals... they're usually just under 2 lbs. I spatchcock my chickens so they cook quicker (and so I don't waste food). I'll most likely be making a stock from the bones, because YUM- way better than the box stuff.
So if anyone has suggestions, wants recipes, or wants to share (please share!) have at it!
