I've been eating a lot of trailmix and egg salad. What I really want is cookies by the bagfull and ice cream, and it shows; I got the lecture from the midwife last week.
You might also be bored and eating becuase of the bedrest. In that case, crunchy vegetables and fruits are your friend. Low calorie, but give your mouth somthing to do.
I generally drink a gallon and a half a day - a combination through out the day of plain iced rrl and/or nettle tea, and water with apple cider vinegar and pink salt. Sometimes juice or Tazo tea with food. I think I'm drinking enough?
Egg salad, yes. I have that a couple times a week. What I'd really like is some deviled eggs! The girl that helps me out is admittedly not great with making food and while she tried making deviled eggs for the first time ever, they were not really what I was hoping for. Also, we've been doing omelets (eggs, cheese, veggies, potatoes) and breakfast wraps (eggs, beans, cheese, veggies, salsa) a couple times a week, too.
I've been eating a couple handfuls of spinach through out day. But maybe some veggies with hummus would be more satisfying.
Its funny, I usually have a decent sweet tooth, but am not really wanting that kind of stuff right now. Strawberries are really as sweet as I want it. Thanks for letting me think out loud. :)
