What I Ate Wednesday {8}

It’s that time of the week again! Time to link up and share food for WIAW. I love reading blogs on Wednesdays, so many new recipes and meal ideas, and today has been no exception.

Let’s get right to it!

Breakfast:

When I find something that tastes delicious and doesn’t make my blood sugars soar, I tend to stick with it until I get sick of it. Lately it has been cinnamon raisin english muffins, topped with crunchy nut butter and then an orange on the side.

Lunch:

Pretty sad that I couldn’t remember what I had for lunch until I went back and looked at the pictures from today. #pregnancyproblems. Pregnancy brain is for real. I had an egg sandwich and a cup of grapes.

Dinner:

I’m happy to say that my aversion to vegetables is fading and I actually had a craving for roasted broccoli all afternoon, I couldn’t wait to eat it for dinner tonight! We had spaghetti and then I roasted broccoli in some coconut oil, sea salt and pepper.

Don’t mind the bump that got in the way of the pictures, that seems to be happening a lot lately.

Speaking of the bump, today is hump day, bump day! 28 weeks, 4 days.

And that wraps up my day! I’ll be finishing off the day with my current bedtime snack of a sliced apple and peanut butter. Exciting.

What I Ate Wednesday {7}

Hello, Hello! Just when I thought food aversions and other yuckiness associated with pregnancy was gone…it’s back with a vengeance. I have had a craving for baked potatoes and chicken for a few days and was so excited to cook that tonight, as you’ll see, that didn’t happen. My stomach has felt “off” all day long today. It’s only 7:15pm, but I’m ready to put the kids and myself to bed. Before that happens, let’s get to the WIAW party!

Breakfast: 

This meal has been on repeat for about a week, it’s so filling and so delicious, I can’t help but eat it every morning.

Carbmaster yogurt with Fiber One Cranberry Almond granola and a sliced banana. Perfection.

Lunch: 

I had an Endocrinology appointment this morning and on the way home I decided to treat myself to a lunch out. Thank you, Jimmy John’s.

This sandwich was SO good, I think it’s going to be dangerous for the rest of the pregnancy that Jimmy Johns is so dang close to us.

Dinner: 

No chicken. Instead I toasted two waffles, slapped some crunchy nut butter and a sliced banana on top and called it a meal. I needed a little something extra, so I had another yogurt.

And because I have yet to finish and publish my 26 week bump-date, here is a picture for hump day, bump day (26 weeks, 4 days).

What I Ate Wednesday {6}

Like almost every other WIAW post I have read today, this is my first one in a couple of weeks, thanks to Christmas Day and New Year’s Day falling on Wednesdays. Glad to be back in the game!

Today was snow day #3. Heaven help us all if school is cancelled again tomorrow.

We kept it low key today and didn’t go anywhere. It was a little warmer than it has been (I think it got up to 14 today which was a heat wave compared to the -40 two days ago) so they were in and out of the house making igloos and snow forts all through the yard. Thank goodness for small favors.

Breakfast:

Looking at this picture makes me sad I emptied the box this morning. I have a mad craving for Frosted Mini Wheats lately, can’t get enough of that goodness! The sliced banana on top makes it even better.

Lunch:

The usual. I’m trying to keep my carb levels to a minimum at least one meal during the day so I don’t have to inject as much insulin. It seems to be helping, my levels have been nothing short of amazing lately. I’m pretty proud of myself :).

Since I was pretty hungry, I also had a makeshift grilled cheese: whole wheat english muffin with sharp cheddar cheese- under the broiler for about 3 minutes.

I had a couple of squares of this little goody this afternoon.

Dinner:

The rest of the family had pancakes, but pancakes make my blood sugar spike to over 200, and I don’t even have syrup with them. Instead, I had an egg sandwich with turkey bacon on the side and a mighty delicious and extra juicy orange.

Can’t forget about hump day, bump day: 25 weeks, 4 days.

I had a bad case of insomnia last night and then the kids were up early this morning, which means I’m ready for bed. Like now. I’m going to go crochet for a little bit and then call it a night when I put the troops to bed.

What I Ate Wednesday {5}

5 in a row, it’s a Christmas miracle! Once again, another WIAW is upon us. I typically post at night, but once I pick up everyone from school, we are headed to my mom’s house for dinner. I’m not sure when we’ll be home, so I’m putting the post up a little bit early today.

Breakfast: 

Simple, but delicious. Oatmeal topped with vanilla stevia and crunchy nut butter.

Yogurt on the side.

Snack:

Pineapple (SO juicy and flavorful!!!) and some sharp cheddar cheese.

Lunch: 

My BIL smoked a turkey for us the other night, so I have been feasting on the leftover turkey meat the last couple of days, today I wanted something different. I turned it into one epic grilled cheese/turkey sandwich.

More pineapple on the side…

Hump Day, Bump Day!

22 weeks and 4 days. My 11 year old wanted to take the pictures this morning. Baby girl is running out of “up room,” pretty soon she’ll just be growing out.

 

What I Ate Wednesday {4}

It’s that time of the week again! I love this day on my favorite blogs, so many new ideas to add to our menus! Let’s get right to it.

Breakfast: It has been COLD here the last few days. I would much rather have this though, then sweating in 100 degree weather. It’s always easier to add more layers, but there’s only so much you can take off. This morning I had oats with crunchy nut butter and then a yogurt.

Lunch: I went to a friend’s house for a brunch which turned into my lunch, my contribution was this yummy egg and canadian baked dish and hash browns. We also had some blueberry muffins that were incredible. It just a laid back morning and we sat around and talked while their kids played and I snuggled with the sweet little 6 month old that was there. I can’t believe I’m going to have a little baby again…and soon!

Snack: My favorite; the mug cake. I have mentioned this so many times over the last week, but I’m not kidding, I ate least have this every other afternoon.

Dinner: Spaghetti! I  needed some vegetables in me (and baby girl) tonight, so I added a cup of steamed broccoli.

Ending with the hump day bump day picture, here we are at 21 weeks and 4 days.

What I Ate Wednesday {3}

It’s that time of the week again, What I Ate Wednesday! I love looking through all of the other entries, gathering meal and snack ideas for when I’m stuck eating the same things over and over again.

Breakfast:

Scrambled eggs, hash brown and an orange.

Snack:

I saw this recipe here and knew I needed to make it ASAP. I made mine with white chocolate chips because that’s what I had in the house, but let me tell you, this is amazing and you should make one. I will be having another one tomorrow and probably every day until I get sick of them.

Lunch:

Two leftover slices of pizza from dinner last night. Apparently my body was not a fan, because even though I gave myself enough insulin to cover the pizza, it was still way too high after that. Lesson learned.

Dinner:

I thought I was ready to cook and eat chicken again. I haven’t been able to eat since the day I got a positive pregnancy test, but it sounded really good. About 1/2 hour into the chicken cooking, I knew that I wasn’t going to be eating it. It still smells in the house and it’s making me so nauseous. Instead, I made a simple wrap with cheese, 1/2 a grapefruit and a yogurt.

Since today is also hump day, bump day; here’s a shot of baby girl at 20 weeks and 4 days. As I was going through the pictures on my phone I saw that I was wearing the same shirt at just 5 weeks pregnant. Amazing how fast the body changes!!!

 

 

What I Ate Wednesday

I haven’t done one of these posts in a very long time, since I had my old blog and even then, it was probably May or possibly April when I did one. 2nd trimester energy is amazing and I hope it never goes away!

If you’re new to the party; Jenn at Peas and Crayons puts this little link up party together every Wednesday, so if you’re hungry or looking for some new meal ideas, go check out everyone who is participating today.

I only have a couple of meals to show you today because my snacks were consumed in the car on the way home from my Dr’s appointment this morning and the afternoon snack on my way to pick up the littles from school.

Breakfast:

Scrambled eggs, toast, turkey bacon and a grapefruit. Yes, I eat my grapefruits like an orange. They are delicious like this and way less effort!

Lunch: 

I tried a new soup from Progresso and I was not disappointed! I also had some Carbmaster yogurt on the side, because it’s the only dessert I get lately and doesn’t send my blood sugars sky high. Win. Win.

And because today is Hump Day Bump Day; I bring you the baby bump at 18 weeks, 4 days.

Have a great night!
