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!
Old faithful: peanut butter and banana on whole-wheat toast. Served with a glass of 1% milk and a glass of water.
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.
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!
Raw broccoli and cauliflower dipped in ranch +
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.
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!
