Whatcha eatin?

post #1 of 147

I thought it would be cool and somewhat inspiring to read what other mamas in here are eating. I noticed a lot of veg mamas, so I was thinking I might get some ideas reading what everyone else is eating.

We could list snacks or meals or whatever.

I am making dinner right now. We're having long grain brown rice, cannellini beans w/ lots of garlic, something green (broccoli? spinach?) and maybe some sliced tomatoes.

Anyone else?

I start my day with a big bowl of oatmeal, 2 pieces of toast with lots of butter, one with jelly (no sugar) and the other with a nut butter, a big glass of raw milk and a serving of fruit. I've eaten this meal for breakfast every single day for the last two years.

For lunch I make sure I get at least 2 servings of veggies and one fruit. Whole wheat pastas with sauce and meat, casseroles (I have a wonderful mac & cheese made with dried mustard, yogurt and a touch of cayenne, mmmm!!!), bread puddings, etc.

Dinner we eat common meal (I live in cohousing) so I just eat whatever is served.

Lots and Lots of Avacado! I'm eating them in ww tortillas with cheese and sour cream, or just plain, whatever. I love them!

Scrambeled eggs, carrots, cheese cubes, salsa, I crave meat but don't generally eat or cook with it so I'm not really having much. Seafood - lots of seafood. Whole grain rice. I'm starving all the time!

I tend to eat leftovers for lunch from the night before (usually pasta or someting both a veg -me and a nonveg - dh can eat).
Breakfast lastely has been homemade banana bread but sometimes english muffins with veggie sausage like a sandwich. I eat a lot of veggie burgers, tempeh, pasta, burrito type things for lunch if not leftovers. I like cooking in bulk. LOL. I make bean veggie bean soups and chilis (yikes) and sometimes I'll just have some veggies and nuts for lunch. I've been really trying, the last year, to only eat when I'm hungry. And to only eat until I'm full... if I don't want a full meal, I won't eat one. I like to graze now. :-)

Clementine oranges! I bought a huge box of them at Costco and they are calling my name! Better that than the bucket of leftover Halloween candy. . .

Mmmm, everything sounds delicious! I want grapes and cheese and wine, too. Avocadoes...

I'm afraid to eat seafood because of all the heavy metals. I just stick with the fish oil supplement.

I just ate a half a pint of gelato...

Last night I made some pumpkin granola bars (recipe from mothering.com) and we had those for breakfast this morning. They really hit the spot. Dinner tonight was a baked turkey breast, yams, and cranberry sauce. yum. I am constantly starving to death and mostly craving meat. I need to go to whole foods and stock up on stuff that I can just grab (and lots of organic ground turkey lol).

I love to cook but lately, whoa! I want MEALS! I roasted a chicken the other night, mashed sweet potatoes and peas. Today I made homemade chicken soup with tons of veggies....really hit the spot on this cold night! I'm going to go make some pumpkin bread from the pumpkins I froze last week. OH! I want to bake and bake and bake!!

Will probably be making a ziti tomorrow....that should call for some yummy homemade garlic bread!!

Off to preheat the oven.......

Eating? Just making food for my son and husband is making me ill. All I can handle is sucking on limes and sipping chocolate milk.

I forgot to add that I'm cooking up a storm while I can....

I saw a post in which someone mentioned "feeding the freezer" for the MS time frame.....a little late for you

Oh no, see now I need clementines too!!!! Egg sandwiches are big on my list right now. Water with lemon. I had a craving for peanut butter earlier but I was out and got distracted by the egg sandwich when I finally got home

mmm...food...i love to eat! we had pizza tonight cause we got home late and we were too hungry to deal with cooking. the night before i made a west african style dinner w/swt potatoes, corn, tomatoes, white beans, onions and garlic, and then seasoned it with ginger, cayenne pepper, and chili powder, all served over brown rice. i've been on an orange veggie kick i guess cause before that i made baked squashes stuffed with veggie sausage, granny smith apples, and nuts, topped with just a drizzle of maple syrup. i loooove cooking!
