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. :-)

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.......

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

Yesterday--
breakfast: pumkpin black bean kale soup; a banana; 1/2 a soy yogurt.
snack: an orange; handful of peanuts; tea.
lunch: Italian pasta salad (yk-ww pasta, olives, chickpeas, tomatoes, broccoli, onion); another bowl of soup.
snack:some grapes; roasted pumpkin seeds.
dinner: edamame; sesame spinach; sushi (vegetarian); green tea.
snack: 1/2 an orange.

The last 2 mornings I have woke up feeling slightly nausous, so I ran into the kitchen for my organic pumpkin omega 3 granola! It is to die for! YUM! Then dh makes me breakfast, our own eggs, toast, once in a while a few pieces of bacon with no nitrates. Lunch is tricky. . ..and never very wonderful. Dinner we eat a lot of meat - our own lamb or chicken, usually squash or potato from the garden, we just got some wonderful spinach from a local farm and have been having spinach, craisen, walnut, flax seed, feta cheese and balsamic vinigrette dressing - delish!! I quit drinking coffe and don't drink soda anyway, and have been staying as far away from sugary sweet processed things as possible.

I have been craving Thanksgiving fare, and couldn't wait for Thanksgiving. Last night we made a Tofurky roast, mashed potatoes with shitake gravy, and steamed green beans. We had a Whole Foods pumpkin pie with real whip cream sweetened with maple syrup. It was so satisfying that I am warming the leftovers up for breakfast.

For breakfast I usually have a thick (so I can eat it with a spoon) smoothie 3-4 times a week made with cashews, walnuts, frozen mangoes, frozen berries, flax or chia seeds, and soy milk (I make it in the food processor, so I can get the right thickness).

I eat oatmeal a couple mornings a week. I mix in cashew butter and maple syrup or agave nectar and top with sliced bananas and soy milk creamer. It is so yummy to me.

I make savory veggie pancakes about once a week. They have grated carrots and zucchini, and they are a big hit with my dp and ds.

Lunch and dinner vary a lot, but I strive to eat a big salad or a big serving of greens everyday.

Mother to two great kids. &

Wow. I know the hungries will hit at some point, but even now everything sounds so delicious!!

Smoothies made with frozen banana chunks are the perfect consistency. You can add protein powder, but I prefer milk or yogurt. This is a great chance to throw in some cod liver oil (pregnant women NEED that Vit A and D!) and ground flax seed, and you'll never taste it.

Ahimsa, post the recipe for those veggie pancakes!! I want to try them.

Linzie, I eat my oatmeal with bananas, raspberries or a spoonful of fortified raw honey (w/bee pollen). Mmm! Just sweet enough. I also pour some cream or milk or melt some butter on top.

I'm struggling with food . I'm having severe nausea despite trying everything to help it . I was trying to go on an alkaline diet but I'm going to have to worry about just eating before I do that. I have found one thing I can stomach: brown rice mixed with beans (black or pink so far) tossed in lemon juice and olive oil.
