I’m on fire about food right now because for the past month, I haven’t really liked it. Like. At. All. Extreme nausea and some vomiting will do that to you. I wanted so badly to share what I was going through with you guys, but I didn’t want to pull you into the pregnancy until I knew I wouldn’t miscarry (and well, we know how that ended). As with my previous pregnancies, the morning sickness makes me lose about 10 pounds. I lose my sweet tooth. I can barely stomach water. No veggies. Salty carbs are my friend. Lots of saltines – I’d be happy if I never saw a saltine again.
But NOW….now that I’m no longer dealing with those pregnancy hormones, I feel back to normal (and yes, I’d much rather be pregnant and sick). I want eat ALL THE FOODS. Sweet. Vegetables. Lots of water. My daily green drink. My protein pancakes. I love it all. You don’t understand how much JOY and HAPPINESS food brings you until you can’t stand it anymore.
The joy is back. And here’s what I’ve been eating:
Egg McMuffin, courtesy of a 6am McDonald’s run.
Swanson’s Super Green Max powder with Bragg’s ACV
Chocolate Chip Clif Bar
Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter, courtesy of my best pal. No spoon required – a finger will do.
Banana…don’t mind the chipped nail polish.
KIWI!! My favorite fruit!
(Makes me want to buy the ingredients for a Fruit Pizza – do you guys like those?)
THE best cookies ever! And almost gone.
Butter Lettuce (yum), Cucumbers, Carrots, Feta, & Hummus Dressing (mix hummus with water)
Hillbilly Roasted Marshmallows
A bacon quiche, courtesy of Susanna. Thank you, friend!
Plant Fusion Protein Pancake + COOOFFFEEEEE!!
A “blessing meal”, courtesy of Heather. Thank you, friend!
Eggs + Quinoa + Mushrooms + Black Beans
Had to save the BEST for last. Ghirardelli brownies + Reese’s PB chips (+ fuzzy slippers)
What a wonderful thing. FOOD. I dare say I’m in love.
QUESTION: What’s the BEST THING you’ve eaten lately? (and do you like fruit pizza? if not, leave and never come back.)
