TONS of healthy food

Sunday, November 04, 2012

I eat a lot. I am hungry all the time, so I decided that since I KNOW that I am going to eat a lot, might as well plan for it! Lately I haven't been planning to eat as much as I end up eating...and it leads to trouble. I dive into the treat box in my classroom, I hit the vending machines, I've even gone and eaten fast food on the way home from school. In my head, I think I should only be eating the 1600-1800 cals that I ate pre-pregnancy...and that is not very smart.

So I bought a ton of food, I packed a ton a food for school, so now there is NO excuse to eat junk from vending machines and fast food places.

Peanut butter and jelly on whole wheat bagel

Turkey on whole wheat bread with honey mustard
Peach-flavored greek yogurt

Carrots with spinach & artichoke hummus
Celery with peanut butter
Protein bar
String cheese

I'm ready to eat! I wonder what my lunch buddies will think of my GIGANTIC bag of foods for the day, lol... Oh well! Pregnant girls gotta eat!

    Yes, you do need to eat!
    Way to plan this out and pack a bunch of good stuff! I can so relate with you about eating a certain amount of calories, food, etc. My pregnant mind definitely plays tricks on me some days, LOL!
    You got this girl!!

    Planning helps SO much! I make much better choices when I don't have to think about it. ;)

    Good planning, and good for you for acknowledging and accepting that a non-pregant body's nutritional needs do not translate for pregnancy (or nursing). You are set!
