Every since I got myself knocked up, my eats have been nothing short of strange.
I fully intend to share a full day of food, what with it being What I Ate Wednesday and all and me being today’s host. Before I get there though, I thought I’d give you all a wee bit extra. Who doesn’t love a little sumpin, sumpin? It’s What I Ate Wednesday, super sized. I know Jenn would approve.
My Pregnancy Food Pearls of Wisdom
Ginger is great for nausea.
Small meals and snacks help too.
Mmm carbs. Buttery, delicious carbs.
You’re not actually eating for two. Sorry, it’s true though.
That being said, go ahead and indulge some of those cravings.
Drink lots of water.
Stop two hours before you go to bed.
Fried food is your new best friend.
Try to eat some greens too.
They’re a great source of iron and will help fight fatigue.
Fats, fats, fats! It’s good for the baby’s brain, so make sure to get you some.
It doesn’t hurt to keep a jar of peanut butter and a spoon handy in your purse, unless of course you have a nut allergy and then I wouldn’t recommend it.
Eat when you’re hungry.
Or when you’re angry because you’re probably low blood sugaring.
Stop when you’re full.
All in all, it’s really quite simple.
The hard part is finding someone to make all your meals for you. Good luck with that one.
Now onto the theme of our show: What I Ate Wednesday.
I give you my Sunday eats.
First Breakfast: a banana and raspberries, eaten in the car, on the way to second breakfast/brunch.
Brunch: Bob Evan’s breakfast with a veggie and cheese packed omelet, hash browns and two buttermilk biscuits with more butter. I pretty much licked all my plates clean.
Dessert: I snagged the Hubby’s ice cream and managed to steal a few bites.
