We’re halfway through the week, guys!
We heard the baby’s heartbeat on Monday, which is always so exciting and reassuring at the same time. Only a few more weeks until we know the gender, ahhh! I can’t believe this is week 17. It’s actually gone by really quickly, so far.
These eats are from Monday, which was a rainy day. I feel like my eats reflected the rainy, yucky weather.
I have been craving eggs for most of my pregnancy, and loving the higher protein breakfast of eggs, toast and bacon. On Monday, though, I really wanted a cozy bowl of oatmeal given the rainy morning we had. I loaded it with strawberries, banana, frozen mango, hemp seeds, chia seeds and a big glob of Sunbutter. If you love drippy peanut butter, you’ll love Sunbutter.
I added a little yogurt and some protein powder after this picture for a bit of a protein boost. I still needed a morning snack a couple hours later. I went a little longer due to our OB-GYN appointment, but come that 10:30-11am time frame, I was starving. Morning snack happened in the car so no picture, but it was pumpkin yogurt with some cinnamon chex for some crunch. I also stopped to get a caffeine free tea because rainy weather requires warm tea if you ask me!
I’ve been all about the rotisserie chicken lately. I love just buying it on Sunday and having it last through the week. I’ve been throwing it over salads, stirfry bowls and just snacking on it as is. It’s pre-seasoned and I love the flavor.
This was some barley with spinach, arugula, green beans, red pepper and hummus, topped with some soy sauce and hot sauce along with a diet coke. Pregnancy has me sick of drinking just water throughout the day.
I skipped out on my afternoon run due to the weather and wanting to go home and be in sweatpants.
I really only feel like “cooking” a couple times a week. Pregnancy just has me wanting easy, quick comfort food meals. Especially when I have clients until 6 or later, there’s no way I’m coming home to cook. Lately, the gem of a husband I have usually makes dinner. We did a twist on grilled cheese and tomato soup (again, perfect for a rainy day), by adding turkey and spinach. We used Dave’s Killer Seed Bread, which is my favorite bread. I reheated some sad broccoli on the side that wasn’t that good but needed to be used.
I haven’t woken up a lot during then night hungry because I’m pretty consistent with a bed time snack. But, if I don’t have a snack, I’ll be more likely to wake up starving. This snack was a combo of Turkey Hill’s Cookies and Cream + Campfire S’Mores ice cream plus a brownie. I saw the recipe on Cora’s blog and had to make it. The brownies were too soft for me, I was hoping they would harden a bit.
I like soft brownies but I like them to have a little structure! Any good pumpkin brownie recipes that you’ve made?
Favorite night time snack?
Do you crave different foods on rainy days?
