Breakfast: Eggs Benedict with mock hollandaise sauce, fake canadian bacon, and avocado. Potatoes, bell pepper, and onions on the side.

Snack: Glass of milk, pistachios, bannana

Lunch: Homemade chimmichangas with flour tortillas, cheese, homemade refried beans, cabbage and more avocado

We had a late start, so not sure if I'm going to eat much more than another snack, but I'm sure I'll get hungry again! I feel like I'm eating all the freakin' time, but then when I look at a list like that it doesn't seem like enough!

MMMMM, they were So good too!

But really, homemade refried beans are SO easy, we'll never eat store bought again!

I feel like a champion! I just ate one and a half tacos! I kept them down! Woo hoo! I also had a few spoonfuls of chocolate ice cream (vegan, of course) and I feel full now. I almost threw up 3 times but I managed to keep it all down - AND I ran the dishwasher! Woo hoo!

Yesterday I had a pretty decent eating day but I have a feeling that today won't be that great cause all I have a taste for at this point it potato chips.

Yesterday I had...
scrambled tofu with oven fried potato wedges
berry smoothie
kombucha tea w/ ginger

veggie sushi
vegan chocolate chip cookie (hey, I gotta keep my glucose levels up, right?)
Clif bar

big, garden salad
bow-tie pasta w/ broccoli and vegan chicken
kombucha tea w/ ginger
Vitamin Water lemonade

I'm heading to whole foods in a while to pick up some stuff for smoothies. I've never been able to make a decent smoothie but I'm going to give it another shot. Any great ideas or recipes?

Bananas, strawberries, and pineapple work great for me. I just throw them in the blender with some soymilk and maybe protein powder and/or water for consistency.

Here's today for me:

Breakfast: Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal (1 pkg)
Lunch: I'll have leftover meatloaf and rice pilaf (ate all the peas last night with dinner)
Dinner: Plans are roast, with onion, carrots and mashed potatoes
I might snack on a few grapes when I get home.

I'll also probably splurge and eat either a browine or a couple girl scout cookies before bed.

Well, I thought I was eating a lot this weekend, but this doesn't seem like much... and I'm not sure I ate more than usual. I'll have to try and remember what I ate this weekend and write it down.

Hmmm, when I made smoothies while trying to get some calories in, I would put a teaspoon on Coconut Oil in. Gave it a really good flavor/texture too. Also, just some really good fruits that you like, either fresh frozen, or buy fresh and freeze yourself, add some juice, water, whatever liquid you like and blend. They might also have smoothie powder. Im not sure where would sell that but it gives it an awesome flavor. I LOVED the ones I got at Whole Foods in California. There is no such thing in San Angelo, TX...

I use a 6-8oz container of yogurt, a whole banana and about a 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries, about a 1/4c of milk and then fill blender with ice. Blend and enjoy. It makes 2 servings worth for me. Very yummy and thick enough to give you something to chew but thin enough you could get it through a straw.

I got a ton of fruit and cut a lot of it up in teeny pieces and froze it all. I figured that way I can just take when I need from a baggie instead of cutting it all up at 7 am. I got yogurt and milk too. I wondered about frozen yogurt. That sounds yummier to me albeit not as healthy. I also got honey and liquid chlorophyll to add to it. I'm going to give raw egg yolks a shot since they're a whole food protein unlike powders.

We had rotisserie chicken breast (skinless) with avocado and tomato in flour tortillas for lunch. Thank the gods, for now the nausea is gone.
Baby_Cakes's Avatar Baby_Cakes 05:52 PM 02-18-2008
Little to no nausea today for me, which is a HUGE difference from yesterday. Couldn't find much that I wanted to eat though, bummer.

large glass of chocolate soymilk
2 mini bagels with herbs & chives Better Than Cream Cheese
1/2 bean burrito
few tortilla chips
2 sour candies

I bought tater tots last night at the store and I'm so looking forward to eating them with a ton of salt and ketchup. Right now it's the only thing I can even remotely think about eating for dinner, lol.
TaraRae82's Avatar TaraRae82 07:24 PM 02-18-2008
Today I've had:

oatmeal, 2c milk
2 eggs, 1 with yolk, 1 w/o, 2 pieces whole grain bread, and 2 slices of cheese....egg sandwich. I really enjoyed it! Yum. I haven't had one in forever.
TONS of water of course!

I've found that I won't need to eat as much as the Brewer diet suggests because the labels on my food show the serving sizes to have WAY more protein that what they guesstimate. That's good because I just can't eat that much!
Changed's Avatar Changed 07:32 PM 02-18-2008
I tried the brewer diet... it's hard to manage and I've known people who gained a TON on it. I can't fathom that happening with you but it is a lot of food to put away. I'm trying to just pay attention to how much protein I eat and later on, I'll be more careful to get more if I'm not getting enough.
TaraRae82's Avatar TaraRae82 07:42 PM 02-18-2008
^It seems to be pretty close to what I'm already eating so I'm not worried about gaining crazy weight, especially since I'm teaching 10-12 classes a week right now. But, thanks for sharing the weight concern. I didn't really even think about it. My Doula just said this is the diet that most mw's recommend so I thought it'd be awesome. Like I said, I won't have to eat as much as it says since my labels are showing a lot more protein in a serving than what the diet guesstimates. Thank goodness! I wonder if others have gained lots of weight because they assumed they knew how large a serving size was (most people way underestimate) and they were wrong or the diet incorrectly guessed the amount of protein so they ate more than necessary?
Changed's Avatar Changed 07:46 PM 02-18-2008
Well, if you think about it it's very hard to get that much protein without a pretty good amount of fat also. Working out 12 times a week, I would imagine whatever you gain is what your baby and body truly NEED. I was a SAHM and not exercising at all when I was doing it. I didn't really stick with it, I modified it because it was hard and too much food. A lot that I didn't like.

You're really lucky to be starting out with such a healthy lifestyle. I bet your birth will be easy peasy.
elspethshimon's Avatar elspethshimon 08:22 PM 02-18-2008
Today was much healthier!

Breakfast: protein bar (and I thought I was going to vomit, I think I need to get some Luna or lara bars)

Second breakfast: whole milk yogurt and granola

Lunch: whole grain toast, turkey, cheese wedge

snack: carrots and roasted red pepper hummus, also tortilla chips

dinner: home made pizza with red peppers and onions

I am also going to boil a bunch of eggs.


I want to buy one of those egg "circles" so I can make McD's-like breakfast sandwiches.

I just woke up from a 2 hour nap and I can't wait for those tater tots. Chris is making the most elaborate and garlic-y smelling sauce, and I just want him out of the kitchen so I can make them.

Hey guys, do you know any way to get a husband to stop making really fragrant, pungent, and non-appealing food? I've tried asking. I've stopped eating the food. But for the past few days, he's been making new and old recipes that take forever, and smell so pungent that I need to physically smell lemons so I don't start gagging, and there is no WAY I can eat them. He sure has been enjoying his dinners, though. I just hate being rude about it, lol.

Breakfast: "Hiker" bagel (all the toppings: garlic, sesame, poppy, etc.) with peanut butter and an orange

Snack: Banana & pistachio nuts

Lunch: Leftovers of linguini, wheat based fake sausages, rainbow chard & tomato sauce

Snack: Yogurt

Dinner: Garlic mashed potatoes with nutritional yeast gravy & tofu and cabbage/carrot coleslaw.

I'm currently doing a 5 day diet diary to see how well I'm managing to get all the nutrients I need according to Anne Frye's lacto-ovo veggie diet. I think I'm doing ok, but will need to up the protein!!! Even though I've been super hungry, it's still hard to eat this much! I feel like I'm constantly in the kitchen.
TaraRae82's Avatar TaraRae82 12:51 AM 02-19-2008
I had leftover chili for dinner with a small glass of milk (yes, I drink a LOT of milk). I need to add up the protein I've had for the day. I was doing pretty good but I'm pretty sure I didn't hit 100 for the day. I'm thinking I've had closer to maybe 75 or 80.
heidirk's Avatar heidirk 01:38 AM 02-19-2008
I did the brewer diet, and it worked well, for me. I'm 5'10" and I gained 30 lbs. DS was 9lbs, 5ozs of that!


Today I ate eggs, cheese, turkey ham and bacon on a tortilla for breakfast.

French fries, just a few,

leftover beef stroganoff for lunch

a coke and a grilled chicken sandwich for dinner

and a few peices of cheese.
and a few cups of coffee.

sigh....it hasn't been the best day in the balanced nutrition department...

DS just woke up and yarked his french fries up all over DH and himself:Puke
I hope I don't get sick from them too!
