What a pregnant lady eats (i.e., EVERYTHING).

As I mentioned on Monday, my appetite has been fairly ravenous recently.  But I’ve just been going with it, since I’m making (mostly) healthy choices.

Today, here’s a look at what a pregnancy lady (at least this pregnant lady) eats on a typical day.

(Keep in mind, this is a “good” day.  You can look back on my vacation post to see that I’m not always so virtuous!)

As always, go to Jenn’s blog for more What I Ate Wednesday fun!

Breakfast:

010-1500

Old faithful: peanut butter and banana on whole-wheat toast.  Served with a glass of 1% milk and a glass of water.

Daytime snacks:

011-1500

008-1500

The top picture speaks for itself.  The bottom picture shows one of my current favorite snacks, frozen grapes.  Don’t let the small amount fool you … I had already eaten several before I snapped the pic. Winking smile

Lunch:

004

I sautéed some garlic and onion in a little olive oil, then added in sliced chicken sausage and cooked it all up until the sausage was nice and brown.  Then I added in the spinach at the last minute.  Served it with mashed sweet potatoes (from a box … I wasn’t feeling that motivated!).  Delicious! Thumbs up

Dinner:

005

Raw broccoli and cauliflower dipped in ranch +

006-1500

I made Amy’s Southwestern Skillet Chicken Chili Mac.  Click on the link for her recipe.  I followed the recipe exactly, except I used whole-wheat penne pasta, because that’s what I had in the house.

This recipe was delicious.  It reminded me of a pasta version of one of my more popular blog recipes, Slow-Cooker Chicken Taco Soup.  It was spicy and mega-flavorful. 

It felt a little weird to be eating Mexican pasta (I never would have put the two together!), but it was a happy weird. Smile

Evening Snack:

001-1500

A bowl of Kashi Oat Flakes & Blueberry Clusters (milk added post-pic), plus one more piece of toast with peanut butter. 

Well, I guess that’s it for today, my friends!  I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!

Question for ya …

    Wow, that definitely is a really good day of eating! Thanks for linking back to a slow cooker recipe. I got a Crock Pot for Christmas and so I’ve been searching for recipes for it like mad. :)

    YUM! You eat very similar to the way I eat. And isn’t chicken sausage great? I went through a phase when I used it all the time for easy lunches + lightened-up dinners. I need to remember to buy some next time I’m at the store!

      I saw it (chicken sausage) recently on Julie’s blog, and it made me remember to go buy some. Like you said, it’s so easy and delicious!

    Mmm I love frozen grapes! It’s been too cold for me to think about them lately, but we used to always eat them when I worked at a pool in college during the summer. Do you get to go home for lunch? Your lunches always look so yummy!

      Hahaha no, I just often post my eats from the weekend, rather than during the week. Or I’ll show a pretty picture from dinner the night before, because I’m eating the leftovers of that dinner for lunch. ;) I wish I could go home for lunch … that would be awesome!

    I love frozen grapes too, but only during the summer. As for my snacks, I’m been into fruit and some sort of protein a lot lately. I’m transitioning into eating clean!

    I am surprised your stomach can handle raw broccoli, I cant even do that!

    Those Caramel Nut Balance Bars taste just like Twix. I swear. [Read: I want to eat another one after I have finished the first. They are CANDY.]

    Is it weird that boxed mashed potatoes actually taste good to me? I think it is because my dad used to make them all the time when we were growing up, so it is like a taste of home. [This before my dad actually learned how to cook. :) ]

      I think they taste like Snickers bars … I agree, I could totally eat them like candy. And I definitely think that we like the foods that we grow up with. My mom often made boxed mashed potatoes, too, so I love them!

    I feel like I eat more than this and I am not pregnant! I admire all the healthy foods you have going on!

    Whoa! Chicken chili mac! That sounds pretty amazing. I loved the chickpea curry we made this week for meatless monday.

    The best thing I have eaten all week: oatmeal raisin cookies my coworker made! They were moist, thick and chewy. :)

    Do you ever have a hard time limiting yourself with grapes? Lol. They are so addicting. I can’t just eat one! :) I didn’t know that Fiber One had a chocolate chip cookie- Have to tell my brother about that!

    • notsodomesticated

      Oh yes … but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with stuffing my face with grapes. ;)

    I love frozen grapes, but only red ones! Lately my fave snack is anything with White Chocolate Wonderful Peanut Butter…soooo addicting!
