Right now I'm eating fried saur kraut. Mmmm.

Dinner? Whole wheat pasta in a garlic cream sauce with spinach and parmasan cheese. "California" style salad on the side...baby greens, mandarin oranges and trail mix tossed in a lemon vinagrette.

Was in the store today and HAD TO BUY those clementines everyone is talking about!! Yum! Had 3 before dinner and DD has 2! I'll probably be back to the store sooner than I want to be!!

For dinner we had fresh picked brussel sprouts, homegrown butternut squash, a corn casserole and parmesan crusted wild haddock.

I'm doing it up while I still can....afraid of what's to come!

I haven't had any food cravings yet, just some aversions to smells. Have been eating a lot of hard boiled eggs. I grind my own flour for bread so have been eating cinnamon toast with homemade apple butter--lots of good B vites. Although, all of this avocado talk has made me have a hankerin' for some avocados! The thought of most fruit and veggies makes my tummy flip flop though.

Linzie2--I like dried cranberries and sliced almonds on my oatmeal--and I prefer scottish oats to rolled oats. But, I do like a little pour of good maple syrup too!

They're easy to make if you use a crockpot! (that's what i've heard, maybe google it or something)

So I browsed through this thread and my only thoughts were "don't ya'll ever EAT?!"

I keep by my bed in a cooler bag what I call a quickie protein shake with oatflour, protein powder, spices and a liquid (usually water cuz i forget the ice pack too often, ha ha!) This is how I like it, but i know others who do it with more fruits and what not. I drink this whenever I wake up enough to know i'm awake, usually just a quick sip or to. ( I have one of those shaker cups witha whipping ball in it). I also keep some Nairn's oatcakes by the bed in an oatcake holder and will munch on those if I am out of the shake.

Then for breakfast I make scrambeled eggs with basil and black pepper and cook up some wedge potatos with skins on and munch on a carrot or two. or sometimes avacado. yum.

Snack: usually curry lentil soup with brown rice or homemade salsa with feta cheese and corn ships

Lunch: (well sometimes I'll eat the lunch for breakfast and eat breakfast for lunch,dependso n my mood tee hee) Last week it was beef stew with potatos and lots of root veggies, yum! This week it's curried chicken with broccoli done in the slow cooker /crockpot and brown rice

Snack: more of the above snack, or sometimes another protein shake if we are out and about as that can be easier to carry around

Dinner: whatever we have left over... this week it's the curried chicken with brown rice and broccoli, last week it was homemade pizza with gluten free crust.

Snack: curried lentil soup with brown rice

and right before bed I will drink a bit more of protein shake to help me make it through the night.

I don't own a crockpot, I'm a rice cooker gal. The Scottish oats are easy enough to make, they just take more time on the stove, vs. 1 minute in the microwave from a tub of quick oats.
I barely have time to eat, much less cook, for myself with 3 boys demanding a huge breakfast.

I just got my first crock pot last month. I had to smuggle it in from the UK as they aren't sold here in Sweden. I'm enjoying it so far. I also love my rice cooker.

Now all I need is a Philip K Dick kitchen that does the shopping, preparing, cooking and cleaning all by itself. I just tell it what I want... *dreams on*

Ugh I seriously just ate like a ton of pepperoni and cheese, spinach dip (think loads of mayo and sour cream), and two chocolate frosted donuts:

I then ate an entire container of raspberries to make up for it.

I feel sick, lol.

morning sickness hit this morning. But I didn't puke until nearly lunchtime. Anyhow, I'm eating a ton because I don't want to let my stomach get empty at all because I know then it feels even worse. But only a few things are appealing to me. So be it.

Nov. 14 --
breakfast: 1 slice toast; soy nuggets (my husband buys this crap sometimes : and I just wanted it this morning).
snack: ramen noodles with broccoli & peanuts.
lunch: ramen noodles with broccoli & peanuts, Take II.
snack: 4 slices of toast. :
dinner: 2 slices tofu swiss chard quiche; 2 slices flax & nut toast; roasted potato halves; blanched spinach.
snack: an orange.

I am so craving candy corn (weird, I know) but I'm holding out. I never eat that kind of crap. I wish I could buy just like 10 of them just so I could stop dreaming of them.

I've been all over the ramen as well. I'm always worried about the msg thing (even when not pregnant) so I've been adding my own broth that doesn't have it. Why, oh why, ramen do you lure me so? :

re: ramen - I don't use the seasoning packets, because they're not vegetarian. I cook the noodles, rinse them briefly (because they're oily), then dribble on a little soy sauce, and sometimes sprinkle on some peanuts. I often add frozen broccoli florets or other vegetables during cooking so that there's actual something nutritious about it!

I've only had 2 pieces of bran toast this morning and some coffee. (opps).
I'm trying to finish up work while my son sleeps but it appears I'm chatting on some forums instead.
All I know is, I'm having garlic bread for dinner tonight. YUM. I *heart* garlic.
I'll probably go heat up some fake chicken nuggets or something for me and my son right now. I haven't had much of an appetite, it comes and goes.

Oh, I've never put soy sauce on them, that sounds good! And I always feel bad about the no veggies too, the broccoli and cauliflower additions are my favorite. I'm not veggie but those little packets have always scared me, my mom and sister get horrible migraines with msg so I usually try to avoid it.

Now you've got me thinking of new ramen stuff. What about sesame oil and peanut (or just soy) butter?
