Since getting knocked up, my appetite has taken a little upswing.
What I mean to say is I’m suddenly able to take in a lot more food without feeling like a beached whale at high tide. It’s definitely strange, and I’m adapting to my newfound, undeniable, and seemingly never ending appetite.
Case in point: I housed a boatload of peanut butter directly after a big lunch the other day because I was still hungry. A serving of granola, which used to satisfy me before, barely wets my whistle now and I often go back for seconds. Full plates of food I couldn’t dream of finishing three months ago, go down like a spoonful of sugar, usually followed by an actual spoonful of sugar.
Some days I scratch my head and wonder if I’m harboring a tapeworm, while other days I recognize this is a result of growing a tiny human. Either way, I thought it would be fun to bring some pregnancy eats to the What I Ate Wednesday link up today.
Therefore I give you my Sunday eats, from the week before last.
First Breakfast: a giant glass of straight up H2O, followed by warm lemon water, and then some nectar of the gods, also known as coffee. I drink this trifecta daily.
Second Breakfast: a fruit and kale filled smoothie which I very nicely shared with the Hubby.
Third Breakfast: Bagels are my everything right now. I definitely didn’t share with the Hubby.
Snack: fistfuls of this edible fruit arrangement, including some of those sea salt chocolate covered caramel apple slices, which were drool worthy.
Lunch: a ginormous spinach salad bigger than my head and certainly my fork with two hardboiled eggs, avocado, carrots, bell pepper, green onions and blue cheese. Some roasted red pepper salad dressing completed the look.
Snack Part Two: a Coffee Crisp. It pays to have Canadian friends, in chocolate that is.
Dinner: was a much bigger bowl of Acorn Squash Soup than seen below, although it was topped with feta cheese and pomegranates. It was also accompanied by two Blue Cheese and Chive Drop Biscuits.
Dessert: was another banana, this time dipped in peanut butter and smothered in chocolate chips.
For shits and giggles or really comparison purposes, you can find a pre-pregnancy WIAW here. It’s definitely less food, although just as tasty.
What’s the verdict? Am I harboring a tape worm or a tiny human? If you’ve ever been pregnant, how did your appetite change?
