We actually go though 3-4 a month my whole family will eat darn near any veggie if its dipped in annies and its one of the few brand that offers dairy free dressings (DS1 is allergic to cows milk)

MMMM! Homemade hashbrowns... I think I'll do that tonight!

Veggies and dip.... I discovered a great organic ranch mix that, when combined with organic sour cream from grass fed cows, is AMAZING!

The past 3 nights we've had spaghetti , either with salad or whatever. I"m sick to death of it but I made a whack of it and didn't want to freeze it so we've been eating it nonstop. It's gone though. FInally. TOmmorow I"m making a beef stew with organic sweet potatoes, red potatoes, celery, carrots, and onions. Now that it is cold out I want hot, sloppy food, and lots of it.

Well yesterday's lunch was a falafel with babganoush, tabouli salad and roasted potatoes. I didn't eat dinner as I was too tired and full. For breakfast I am having 2 hard boiled eggs with butter and salt, and oatmeal with milk. My nausea is really better, so food is going down better (and I can drink coffee again - decaf).

This morning has been awful. I was dry heaving before I was even out of bed. Finally I nibbled down some nutitionally empty white toast... and a cup of weak tea with lemon and honey.

Hopefully by this afternoon I can stomache my incredible beef stew... I need catch up nutrients.

Trying to get back on track here. I made an awesome soup yesterday. I based it off a potato leek recipe, but caused cauliflower instead. I sauteed the leeks in olive oil, boil the cauliflower just a bit, add some homemade stock - about 2 cups, stirred in the cauliflower, salt and pepper and then wirred it all around in the blender. Best part is Luke loves it too, he kept asking for more, I think he ate about 6 of his little bowls.

Tonight we are having steak (had a craving), steamed brocoli, and mini potatoes (told ya I was craving them big time). Pretty simple, but I worked all day and didn't want to be a chef tonight.

Yesterday was a good eating day, but I had some bad nausea in the afternoon.

For breakfast I ate just yogurt and a peach. But for lunch we went to a Thai restaurant because I was craving their Spicy Thai noodles with shrimp. It is so yummy and basically glass noodles, fresh coriander, fresh Thai basil, veggies, and hot spicy goodness. I also had a small bowl of lemongrass soup and a spring roll (ok, two).

For dinner we ate steak again, mashed potatoes/sweet potatoes/cheddar cheese/garlic (divine), fresh beets, green/yellow beans, and yellow bell peppers (raw). All organic except the steak.

For breakfast I am having various cheeses (went shopping yesterday), raspberries, a nice organic gala apple, and a black plum. Yum, yum! I'm going out to a visit with a client soon that could lead to a long day, so I needed to fortify myself with anti-junk food in case that's all I can get later.

Tonight I am making a broccoli cheese soup for dinner.

All these good eats and I still haven't put on more than 2-3 pounds!

Ok Carolyn ya making me sick here, my weight keeps a climbing. Trying to eat relatively healthy, but I am now onto the I have to eat every 2 hrs. I think I am just destined to be fat and preggo. I have to have a huge and I mean huge breakfast or I am hungry an hour later, like I ate 3 eggs and 2 pieces of bacon (farm fresh all naturale) and a big nectarine, promptly 2 hours later I had an apple and raw milk cheese. 1 .5 hrs later I had kung pao chicken and rice with some garden fresh tomatoes and greens. 2 hrs later some kefir. Another 2 hrs and a big helping of panseared steak and onions, mashed potatoes and a fresh tomato. Then about 2.5 hrs later we are in town and I had to eat again as I was about to throw up.

Oh boy... yesterday I had a booth at a trade show type event, and ate 'fair food' all day... fries, greasy sausage on a bun, etc, etc... but I also ate apples throughout the day and had a pile of veggies for dinner when I came home.

Today is my oldest ds's birthday party, so I am preparing lots of fresh cut up fruit and veggies to go with the inevitable pizza, and then of course the cake.... if I do berries and icecream with only a little piece of the cake, I won't feel so bad...

Last night we went to Oktoberfest at the Horse Palace! What fun! Polka bands and everything. Have you ever had fresh Ribbon Fries?? To die for! And yummy fresh chicken-dumpling soup and of course Bratwurst! I was in heaven and ds loved the dancing on the wooden dance floor.

This am, I made a fresh pumpkin - pecan pie and we had sweet potato homefries with bacon for breakfast. An egg-salad sandwich (from our own hens) and tonight smoked Cornish Game Hen (also our own) and salad.

I'm sorry -- I am a queen-sized Mummy so I am pleased that I am not getting more queen-sized. I'll be a bit more discrete at my delight.

Alls forgiven :P

Ignore me as I am just bitter. I have a newly prego friend (who is no where near overweight) who only put on 15 lbs for her first pregnancy (which shocker ended up early) and then just 20 for her last. She was going off on a tangent about women gaining so much during pregnancy and eating whatever they want. I seriously want to strangle her. I gained 55 lbs last time, but seriously ate way more healthy than her, for one thing I don't down mountain dews, but I digress. Feeling bitter about this...

For all my bravado, I gained 40-50 lbs with each pregnancy. It just looks better on you when you have a baby belly, and not just a mama belly!

I jumped on the scale today and I am up another 2 pounds....poetic justice, no?

I gained a pile of weight with my second, and vowed to be more careful this time but as of yet I have not been working out,and I"ve developed a distinct grabable 'layer' on my abdomen. It stresses me out, but I'm coping. Trying to eat well though, and to get out for a walk at least if I can't handle the gym.
