Breakfast- Think Thin protein bar. It was one of those mornings that I was starving right when I woke up, so protein bar for the win while I get everyone dressed and together for day, before we head out to Jazzercise.
Lunch #1- Green smoothie- stopped at Tropical Smoothie Cafe after jazz and picked up an early lunch of smoothies for the kids and myself on the way out to the suburbs for open gym at the gymnastics place. I got mine without sugar, but I have a feeling it had a lot of apple juice in it, ha! Otherwise it was cucumber, green apple, kale, spinach, celery & kiwi.
Lunch #2- After we got home from jumping for a couple hours, Deeds went down for nap, DH had rest time. I worked and munched on field pea salad, brie and crackers (x2- I went back for a second helping).
I was feeling peckish while making our stir fry for dinner, so I made a GIANT iced decaf coffee, with a ton of 2% milk, some stevia and cinnamon to get me through.
Snack #2- a cup of steamed milk with vanilla and cinnamon, honey and or stevia before bed. It helps this pregnant lady sleep and my dreaded nighttime reflux.
DAY TWO- Friday:
Breakfast: Avocado Toast. Hurrah! My avocado is finally ripe! Whole grain bread (Dave's thinly sliced, to be exact), with a lacing of olive oil, and a quarter of an avocado mashed on top, then some sea salt.
Snack #1- a cup of 1% chocolate milk after Jazzercise.
Lunch: We hit the pool, and was pumped to see Baja Fish Tacos as the special. They were delicious! Grilled tilapia on a flour tortilla with pineapple salsa. And fruit on the side.
Dinner- My father-in-law came in town, and we had pork tenderloin, field pea salad, caprese salad, and corn on the cob. Except I left out the corn on the cob- ever since and unfortunate incident with corn, braces and preteen angst it's something I avoid.
Snack #3- steamed milk (same as previous night).
DAY THREE- Saturday:
Breakfast: More avocado toast, except I add two hardboiled eggs this time for a little protein power.
Snack #1- a handful of cherries and a string cheese.
Lunch- I find some of Martha Stewart's chicken soup in my freezer, hurrah! It's just chicken, carrots, celery, onions and parsnips, and so good when you are feeling run-down. I grate a smidge of parmesan on top.
Morgan made dark chocolate Ghirardelli brownie/cookie bars last night. I resisted the night before (not out of willpower- just because of reflux reasons). I give in once Deeds goes down for his nap, while DH is checking out a dino exhibit at the museum with Morgan and Pop-Pop. It's delicious, and I have another piece after this one (smaller though, ha!) and a glass of milk.
Dinner- We order a loaded pizza and Greek salad from our favorite neighborhood place. This is half of a piece. I had the other half and some more salad as well. YUM!
Snack #3- steamed milk.
Well, this was an interesting experiment. I definitely feel like I ate healthier than I might of, knowing I was holding a mirror up to my choices. Also, there are things not pictured- my daily Diet Coke (oh, how I love thee), a handful of pretzels at the pool, or what have you. And, man! I eat a lot of dairy. Part of that is pregnancy- I love milk when I am pregnant!
So what do you eat every day? The voyeur in me loves these kinds of posts!
