What I’m eating lately & 23 week bump update
You may recall my pregnancy announcement where I listed a lot of my food cravings.
There was definitely a period of time when all I wanted was junk, and vegetables were the enemy. I hardly recognized myself!
But lately, I am mostly back to my normal ways, and I’ve been pumping my body (and my growing baby) with healthier foods.
But before my hubby calls me out on the brownies, cookies, and ice cream I’ve also been eating, I’ll admit that I am not perfect these days (and never was) when it comes to eating.
As my favorite Duck Dynasty star Si might say if he was in my shoes, “I’m going to give it to you straight, Jack… this was my dinner one night last week.”
That’s right- you’re looking at French toast with whipped cream, scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, and a chocolate chip cookie on the side.
I almost didn’t post this picture because well… this meal wasn’t even remotely healthy! I had a really specific craving though, and as long as I am not giving into my cravings at each meal, I think I am completely entitled to give into them every now and then.
I’ve really been trying to eat a lot of healthy fats, such as olives, coconut oil, olive oil, salmon, and avocado (brain food for the baby!), and I make sure that I’m meeting my required daily allowance as far as protein, fruits, and veggies.
Even though I didn’t do so when I ate the French toast dinner, I have also been more mindful of eating foods that do not aggravate my dairy intolerance.
I want my body and my baby to be strong and healthy, and I must be doing something right…
Check out my bump!
As Michael commented yesterday, there’s definitely something in there.
By the way, Baby Turner is still sucking up all of my brain power.
For instance, I was supposed to meet my friend Kirsten for lunch yesterday at Jason’s Deli. She sent me a text sometime in the morning to say that she wasn’t feeling great. For some reason, my flighty mind thought that she asked if we could meet tomorrow instead. I felt horrible when she texted me to ask if I was on my way…and I was sitting at home eating Subway!
Speaking of Subway, the woman behind the counter said, “You’re the woman with the husband who comes in here all of the time because you have sandwich cravings, aren’t you?” when I placed my order.
I was sort of embarrassed, but I owned up to it. After all, who can resist that sweet onion sauce? It’s the best! I need to figure out how to recreate it at home.
Have you ever tried Subway’s sweet onion sauce? If not, you must! It is highly addictive and mighty tasty.
Do you watch Duck Dynasty? I swear, I cannot get enough of it. Si and Jase are my favorites. They always manage to crack me up.
Have a wonderful day!
