I just ate a (microwaved--gaaahhh!) sweet potato heavily accented with coconut oil. I must say, it really hit the spot. Thank you, Envirobecca, for the suggestion! That will be my favorite until it's not anymore, haha.

This is my life right now. Its all what I am loving right now or not. I had the most awesome healthy burrito and I nearly gagged on the veggies inside. The veggies, my favorite part! I just wanted to dig out the white rice (rice? seriously?) and gobble it down.
Dang. White rice kind of sounds good right now.
The sweet potatoes are actually sounding good, but the one on my counter is sprouting. Waaaahh!
I decided to try making some turkey broth yesterday, but without all the extra onions, garlic, herbs, and veggies. It is just turkey backs and necks in water. Oh. My. Gosh. I think it is the first thing in a couple weeks that has actually smelled mouth watering. I've been smelling it all night and couldn't wait to have some this morning. Now I'm just waiting for some of it to cool in the fridge so I can skim off the fat. I want some now!!
Now I just need to get motivated to clean up the huge pile of potatoes on the counter. My boys "surprised" me with a mountain of unwashed potatoes on my counter the other day, and I haven't mustered the energy to scrub them yet.
I scrambled eggs yesterday with a little sea salt, cheese and milk, it was delicious!
I have realized I need to eat more veggies. I'm getting more fruit in than usual (which wasn't much or any at all some weeks before), by drinking fresh fruit smoothies daily. So now I need to work on veggies more in lunch and dinner meals or as snacks possibly? hmm
I was upset to find out last night that a medication I take lowers the ability to absorb folate. People taking this med who are trying to get pregnant are supposed to take mega doses of folic acid. I was taking 400 mg folic acid and eating more fruits and vegetables than I normally do. I hope that was enough I may decide to do more of the bloodwork for DownSyndrome and spinal defects now. I just wish I would have known.
I'm either nauseous or starving. No in between and when I'm starving, I'm starving. It actually hurts. Oh, and I'm thirsty all the time. Right now I am eating chips and salsa because that appeals to me. It's very frustrating.
My midwives says eggs are so good during the first trimester because they have choline which is good for brain development.
