I was wondering what everyone is eating, and to share the good things that I am eating, as an inspirational thread to keep us all putting good things in our bodies.

I didn't eat really well this morning, and for lunch ate at IKEA. But I am doing better with an afternoon snack of homemade ratatoiulle (sp?) from my garden (all but the onions) over boiled new baby potatoes. For dinner we are having brown rice, fresh spinach salad, and pork shishkabobs.

Mmmm! I want to eat at your house tonight.

Well, it worked. You inspired me!

But, I'll have to drag my butt to the grocery store first!

Unfortunately, I am still having aversions to most of my healthy favorites and bad food tastes good to me right now.: I can't wait for this phase to pass. But in the spirit of this thread, and to try to alleviate some of my guilt for putting pop tarts and McChickens into my system, I have recently eaten:

organic cantalope
oatmeal with raisins
bran flakes
a chicken salad sandwich
organic plums

I am trying so hard to offset the crap I have eaten!

well, I just ate a soy ice cream bar. Awesome. We're also going out for a black-tie fundraiser for my job tonight, so I don't know if there'll be much time to cook something inspiring ;-). You all will have to wait until tomorrow.

The other night we had a chicken and shrimp stir fry with broccoli and peas and little bit of kelp in it along with some rice. We have also been eating alot of bean dishes, as those are better for the budget right now. We make homemade refried beans with meat, homemade salsa, guacamole and sprouted corn tortillas. I have some raw, white cheddar I eat for snacks with some very tastey gluten free crackers with seeds and whole grains in them. And we also eat alot of frozen berries for snacks.

Unfortunately, there is very little that sounds good to me. The good news is, the things that DO sound good are good for me!

Fresh veggies, that is pretty much all I want to eat. Cucumbers, celery, avocado, carrots, tomoatoes, cabbage. This is what I want to eat. When I add a little protein, it helps the nausea. Last night I made veggie chili, heavy on the tomatoes. Tonight I had a cabbage salad with peanuts.

I hear you, momma! I was doing great before the nausea hit at about 6 1/2 weeks. Here was my typical intake prior to feeling perpetually nauseous:

A bowl of Kashi cereal (high protein & fiber) w/ a splash of raw goat's milk
1 or 2 free range eggs
Baby carrots for a snack
A piece of whole grain bread and a big spinach salad for lunch
Baked chicken, brown rice, and veggies for dinner.

Now:

A bowl of Kashi (high protein & fiber) w/ regular cow's milk
2 or 3 "animal crackers" (translates: sugary partially hydrogenated crap w/ white flour) :
Leftover appetizers from DH's b-day party (jalapeno poppers, cheese sticks, and loaded potato skins)

Where did all the veggies go?? : Yikes! Midwife is going to kick my arse. :

Isn't Annie's Goddess Dressing absolutely addictive! I go through at least a bottle a month it is so yummy. I don't eat any other salad dressings 'cuz I like the Annie's too much!

My nausea is on hiatus right now (yay!) and has gone from a 4/10 to a 1/10. I can even have some coffee once in awhile. So eating is interesting again.

Y'all have posted some good food! Yum!

This morning I am having a smoothie (almond butter, soy milk, yogurt, frozen fruit), 2 eggs, and whole grain toast. Pretty simple.

I have to give big kudos to my hubby. Last night I was craving tomato soup - and of course we had none in our house. But the wonderful man went online, got a recipe, picked maters out of our small garden, and made me tomato soup from scratch!!! We had that with turkey burgers, yum!

My biggest craving has been for non-sweetened dairy. Cream cheese and bagels, small chunks of cheese, cottage cheese. Cheese, cheese, cheese!

Mostly my aversions are to sweets, so overall I'm eating pretty healthy. I made an apple pie last night though (my thank you to hubby) and seriously could have eaten the whole thing!

Well, I am still having adversions. I want to eat healthy and then I try and I just can't. I am 8 weeks today. I think the adversions will get better closer to the begining of the 2nd tri.

nothing...waaaaah...

the occasional plain white saltine cracker.

a baked potato for dinner most nights with a tiny bit of real butter.

green apples peeled and sliced very thin.

Propel 'fitness' water...regular water tastes weird to me sometimes but I'm thirsty a lot.

Well, my breakfasts have been absolutely revolting, but the only way to get protein into me early in the morning... my confession : a 10" hotdog rolled in a tortilla (wheat, not corn) with cheese melted on it. It's greasy and salty and downright disgusting I can barely eat it! I need to go buy a ham... then I can have that and have something relatively heathy in it besides a big greasy hotdog!

My snacks have been healthy though!
apples
grapes
baby carrots
cottage cheese
any other kind of cheese!
and... ahem Doritos

and yesterday for lunch I had a salmon/spinach/tomato pasta dish. yum! and for dinner DH gave me the last two slices of ham in my grilled cheese sandwich and made soup and sandwiches for dinner for me because I got in late.

Wow- you guys impress me... normally I eat good, but now nothing sounds good or tastes good.
I do have fruit around, but I feel better with protein.
For lunch I make lemon pepper chicken breast and a loaded baked potato.
For snacks I've been having fruit, tomatoes, yogurt and pudding. Crackers don't do it for me anymore. Was eating the "organic spring mix" salad w/dressing-- but I like ranch... so not the healthiest.
Thankfully I don't really like sweets- but mac & cheese w/ hotdogs has been going down well- so I've eaten alot of that.

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.
