YAY! The weekend is almost here. If you’re a weekend meal planner, here are some meal / snack ideas for you for next week.
Wednesday I went out for an early breakfast date at Adair Kitchen with a friend. Half sweet vanilla latte + chocolate croissant + turkey bacon. My tastebuds have always loved turkey bacon more than regular bacon. I always think it tastes like bacon jerky. Totally fab.
This is a past photo from vacation, but I’ve been on an oatmeal kick. Oats cooked in 2% or whole milk with banana whipped in. Then topped with blueberries + peanut butter + cinnamon + brown sugar. It’s my tastebud’s perfect bowl of oats.
Another vacation breakfast was french toasting a blueberry muffin. If you’ve never french toasted a blueberry muffin, it’s worth a try.
Even in the second trimester, I’m still feeling a lack of appetite a lot around lunch and dinner time. My appetite is there for me at breakfast time, but for the rest of the day it disappears. There is usually hunger throughout the day, but often nothing sounds good. Most meals are eaten to take away hunger…not for a gourmet experience. I’m a big fan of eating every 3 hours. That is what works best for my body & blood sugar levels – pre-pregnancy and still now in pregnancy.
One day this week I stopped by Whole Foods and picked up a Buffalo Chicken Wrap. It was tasty and I’d get it again.
salad + pizza.
chipotle taco’s to-go.
glazed blueberry cake donut + canned latte.
granola bar with nut butter smeared on top.
greek yogurt + honey. Not having a snack RIGHT BEFORE I go to bed is not an option in pregnancy. If I don’t have a snack I wake up in the middle of the night hungry…no thank you. I choose to eat adequately during the day so I can sleep through the night. I imagine once baby girl is here, sleeping through the night isn’t going to be an option early on…so I wanna get as much sleep now as I possibly can :)
What’s the most satisfying thing you’ve eaten this week?
