I'm still slightly queasy ALL the time and have no appetite so it's extremely hard for me to find things that sound appetizing to eat. I'll find something and then eat it all the time and burn out on it (like breakfast sandwiches).<br><br>
I remember the last time we had this thread I got a lot of great ideas for foods I hadn't thought of (e.g. cottage cheese and fruit).<br><br>
So can you help me out? What are you eating these days?

Tonight I had rhubarb pie (homemade <3) that was delicious though!

I am trying to eat food that is good for me, but doesn't always work out.<br><br>
Tonight:<br>
Lentils<br>
Salad<br>
Garlic Bread<br><br>
Lunch:<br>
BLT (fake bacon, since I am a vegetarian)<br><br>
Breakfast:<br>
Protein shake<br><br>
I am loving quinoa salad right now: avocado, tomato, mango, cucumber all mixed with cooked and cooled quinia. Add a lot of lime juice and there you go. I LOVE it (and it is a complete protein).<br><br>
Also a spicy black bean dish that my friend gave me the recipe for:<br>
saute garlic<br>
add a couple of cans of black beans<br>
1 can stewed tomatoes (I use the spicy tomatoes from trader joes)<br>
cook for about an hour and there you go.<br><br>
I am gaining fast, so I guess I have found too much stuff that I like... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

what is fake bacon?<br><br>
is it tasty?<br><br>
I do not eat pig products for moral reasons and found giving up bacon to be the hardest (blts, bacon in my pasta salads, etc.) but never knew there was FAKE bacon!

I use smart bacon by litelife (I think) or morning star farms bacon...<br><br>
Made of soy and wheat and other processed things... but I only eat it every couple of weeks.<br><br>
I LOVE it. To me is is so much taster than the real stuff as it doesn't have all the fat pieces...<br><br>
Anyways, I cook it on the stove with a bit of olive oil and it turns out great! Make sure you get it nice and crispy!<br><br>
Give it a try!!!<br><br><a href="http://www.morningstarfarms.com/product_detail.aspx?family=934&id=352" target="_blank">http://www.morningstarfarms.com/prod...ily=934&id=352</a><br><a href="http://www.lightlife.com/product_detail.jsp?p=smartbacon" target="_blank">http://www.lightlife.com/product_det...p?p=smartbacon</a>

Or you could try turkey bacon. I love turkey bacon more than piggy bacon. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
Currently loving my dairy free scalloped potatoes.<br><br>
And red meat. Oh, how I want red meat. Still haven't had much though, it's too pricey. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Currently having roasted garlicky oniony potatoes with bbqed chicken and some veggie steamed side dish thing I thought up.<br><br>
BF was half a cup of frosted mini wheats, a cup of almond milk, and a banana. Followed by 2 tortillas.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
I have also had chocolate chip cookies today. I won't mention the amount of casualties tho.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>

Oh, please share your recipe!! I've been dying for some creamy potato-y thing, but yeah...dairy-free narrows that a little.<br><br>
Last week I was really into smoothies--strawberries, bananas, almond milk/OJ and some of my sprouted rice protein powder. Kinda burned out on that this week.<br><br>
I still really crave processed red meats--salami, pepperoni, summer sausage, bacon. Trying to mostly indulge in nitrite/nitrate free salami sandwiches with lettuce, tomato and mayo. I'm really into other red meat, too, though. Makes me wonder if I'm just teetering on the edge of anemic. We've been eating lots of burgers and meatloaf, spaghetti with meat sauce, etc. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I'm tired of eggs.<br><br>
OH! And I'm loving salads, especially this one: <a href="http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/mixed_green_salad_with_pecans_goat_cheese_and_honey_mustard_vinaigrette/" target="_blank">http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/mixed_green_salad_with_pecans_goat_cheese_and_hone y_mustard_vinaigrette/<br></a>

Still only really want fresh fruits and veggies. And milk. Lots of milk.<br><br><br>
I'm feeling queasy a lot of the time (STILL, after having no m/s at all with my first preg, this is just nuts), and heartburn most of the time. So, not a huge appetite.

I was craving and eating a ton of cereal for awhile but now it's started giving me hearburn so I'm having breakfast sandwiches (made with these little sandwich thins similar to Arnolds thins, cheese and an egg) and fruit for breakfast. Lunch is a sandwich usually unless my hubby feels like cooking (my office is attached to my house and hubby and I work together). Snacks are usually pieces of fruit, string cheese, pita and hummus. I've been craving pizza and have indulged in it too many times, as well as various pastas. Other than that, we've been doing cookouts with BBQ chicken or gardenburgers and corn on the cob.<br><br>
My biggest cravings at the moment (they change from week to week) are Iced soy chai tea lattes, pineapple, strawberries (which I never get because our strawberry season is late and I can't find any organic ones in a 15 mile radius. I won't eat non-organic ones), Sabra or homemade hummus (though I need to cut back on the pitas), and corn on the cob with lime juice and chile powder on it.<br><br>
I've been really BAD about "extras" like ice cream, cookies, whatever. I pretty much have had a little something sweet every day and I think my diet is fairly healthy (although it could be more well rounded probably), except for that. We've decided to give up sugar as a family and I'm working on being more balanced and focusing on simple foods.

Oh all of your food sounds so yummy! I think part of the problem is I don't really like to cook even when I'm not pregnant. Now that I'm pregnant, I have no energy. It's hard to have yummy food if you're not willing to cook.<br><br>
If I were rich I'd just go to Whole Foods every day and buy stuff at their deli. But alas, I can't afford that.

How do you make the iced soy chai latte? That sounds delicious! And I printed out the recipes others have provided. Thanks!

I've been doing a lot of recipes out of the Food & Wine Magazine cookbook collection (the Quick and Easy series). It's fabulous, gourmet/restaurant-type food, and usually it's very, very easy to prepare. Right now I'm working my way through my favorite recipes in the soup & salad book, but I also love the pasta book, the chicken book, the one-dish meals book, and the herb book.<br><br>
...and as a bonus <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">, the cookbooks are out of print now and are VERY cheap when you buy them used on amazon. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FQuick-Scratch-Soups-Salad-Cookbook%2Fdp%2F0916103900%2Fref%3Dsr_1_4%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1274121351%26sr%3D8-4" target="_blank">Soup and Salad</a><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FQuick-Scratch-Chicken-Food-Magazine%2Fdp%2F0916103897%2Fref%3Dsr_1_2%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1274121572%26sr%3D1-2" target="_blank">Chicken</a><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FQuick-Scratch-Herbs-Spices-Cookbook%2Fdp%2F0916103919%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1274121598%26sr%3D1-1" target="_blank">Herbs</a><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FQuick-Scratch-Pasta-Sterling-Eds%2Fdp%2F0916103870%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1274121624%26sr%3D1-1" target="_blank">Pastas</a><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FQuick-Scratch-One-Dish-Meals-Cookbook%2Fdp%2F0916103889%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1274121650%26sr%3D1-1" target="_blank">One Dish Meals</a><br><br>
There's a full-page picture for each recipe, a detailed (and accurate) prep guide, suggested wines for each meal, and recipe variations if you're out of certain meats, ingredients, or herbs.<br><br>
As for what I'm craving, I'm really needing protein this week. I'm trying to make Trader Joe's bison burgers as often as possible...each burger has over 40 grams of protein!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat"><br><br>
I also still love my healthy-pizza snacks. I toast a whole weat english muffin, put two slices of moz. cheese on it, then top it with a thick slice of tomato and some black pepper or a fresh basil leaf.

I just tried the salad. It was YUM-MY! (Though it's not exactly lowfat). It felt so good to eat spinach and lettuce. Now onto the scalloped potatoes!

I'm all over the place with my eating.<br><br>
I tend to eat pretty healthy during the week when I'm at work and having limited access to snacks, but then sometimes I swing by the store in the evening and end up buying chocolate. It really is my weakness. Then I usually don't eat so well on the weekend...not good for me, for baby, or DH!<br><br>
One thing I'm loving for lunch right now is the mango and black bean salad (with quinoa) from the <i>Veganomicon</i>. Super easy to make, a complete protein, and totally delicious.<br><br>
I'm a vegetarian, but ever since I've gotten pregnant I can't really stand any processed foods made with vegetable protein, so my usual easy go-to of a frozen veggie burger has been eliminated from my diet. So sad! However, just made some black bean burgers (also from the <i>Veganomicon</i>), which are totally delicious. When the school year's over I'm going to make a big batch of them and freeze them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

You can also make fake bacon at home with tempeh (fermented soy bean cake--sounds gross, but is based on the same principle (but not taste) as "moldy" cheeses like blue cheese).<br><br>
Tempeh is amazing. Incredibly high in protein, with less fat than tofu. Some folks find it has a bitter taste, but if you boil it first, it eliminates the bitterness and increases the tempeh's ability to soak up a marinade.<br><br>
A few recipes for tempeh bacon:<br><br><a href="http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=7553.0" target="_blank">Recipe 1</a><br><a href="http://kblog.lunchboxbunch.com/2009/06/tempeh-bacon-recipe-vegan-facon-makes.html" target="_blank">Recipe 2</a><br><br>
(you can also google "tempeh bacon" and find lots more!)

Hmmm...I don't have much of an appetite either.<br><br>
I've been wanting a lot of peanut butter, and I've been making myself snack on almonds instead of junk. I have been putting meals in the freezer, and making them in bulk. I still don't want it, but at least I don't have to think about it at the end of the day when I'm tired. Everyone else still has to eat, and if it's there, I'll eat some, too. Meat-wise, we're eating beef. I have about 60 pounds of cow in my freezer and we have to eat it before we move. So...that's what we're eating!
