What I Ate in A Day: Preggo Edition
As with anything else on the blog, I write what I like to read about in my own life. Well, I really enjoy reading what people like to eat on a daily basis, so I thought I would share what a day in the life of preggo Ms. Fitfood. While I have been pregnant, I haven't been as much of a creature of habit as I usually am because what sounds good is constantly changing to me. Also, you can LOL at the pictures I took for most of my meals...I am really really bad at remembering to take them. Especially because I am usually real hungry! haha
Pre-breakfast: Around 7AM I usually eat a small snack to start my day and to take my vitamins with. It is usually 1/2 of a Larabar. I keep them in the fridge and either buy the chocolate chip cookie dough or PB chocolate chip flavor.
Breakfast: On the go and in the car! I had a meeting at 10:00 and I had a work meeting, so I made my usual. A protein shake! It had frozen blueberries, a bunch of greens, unsweetened cashew milk, chocolate Plant Fusion protein powder, and PB2.
Snack: I munched on some dried mango that Isabella got from Costco. Who doesn't love dried fruit?
Lunch: My mom, sisters, and BFF were in town so I thought I would take them to one of my favorite places to eat! It's called the Juicy Kitchen. It is a super healthy place to eat and offers a ton of vegan and vegetarian options! I got the Power Bowl which has quinoa, sweet potato, kale, 1 egg, avocado, caramelized onion, and tomato vinaigrette on top! It is my usual when I go! I also got a raw PB quinoa cookie and ate half for dessert!
Snack: I have been obsessed with chocolate almond milk pudding lately that I buy from whole foods and I top with with coco whip and the other 1/2 of my Larabar from the morning. It is relish and usually works as my dessert for the day! I make it into a kind or parfait in a mug.
Dinner: I made Stuffed peppers and paired it with a pre-made salad mix I bought from costco. The salad had about 15 different types of greens and was topped with dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds and a poppyseed dressing. The stuffed peppers had rainbow quinoa, ground turkey (or vegan chicken nuggets for Bailey and Andie), corn, black beans, salsa, sweet potato, and caramelized onion! Easy peasy. Once you cook the filling, just add some vegan or regular cheese and bake for about 25 minutes on 400 degrees!
We ate a late dinner so I didn't really snack after dinner since I wasn't hungry. I have been listening to my body during pregnancy. If I am hungry, I eat. Simple as that. I just try to eat things that are healthy and good for me and baby!
With Love and a full tummy,
