I am currently eating some beans that I defrosted over jasmine rice. i made a big enough batch so Ill have enough of both of these for a couple days.

I brought some bread with cheese for breakfast #2 (I ate cereal immediately upon waking).

I ate a pear for mid morning snack. (and 1/2 a croissant someone brought in)

I have a mandarin and greek yogurt and hard pretzel for this afternoon. 

My pregnancy food is not my normal food for many reasons.

1) I cant seem to get down veggies most days and I used to eat a ton of those. I am eating way more grains than I ever used to.

2) I am eating stuff to clear out my cubboards as we are moving in a couple weeks. 

3) Darling Husband is not here so I am not really cooking much at all.

I try to bring leftovers whenever possible. Last week I made a batch of veggie burgers and ate one everyday for lunch. I bring PB&J and milk when I’m a) too lazy to put together anything else or b) we are low on groceries. 

Snacks: granola bars, fresh fruit, almonds, the occasional Luna bar

I was bringing Chobani yogurt cups for a snack but I got sick of them. So I just started blending them into a smoothie in the morning. 

I used to snack on raw veggies & hummus or blue cheese dressing all the time, but I can’t seem to get myself to eat raw veggies right now. 

Breakfast is usually toast, oatmeal, or a smoothie. I eat eggs or cereal during the weekend. I also had a major bagel & cream cheese craving for a while, but I’m trying not to eat them too often. 

I try not to eat lunch out very often, but when I do it’s a chicken sandwich from Subway or a local place or a Jimmy Johns vegetarian sub. I used to hate Jimmy Johns and now I find myself craving it.

I have a Bunch of food allergies (dairy, eggs, wheat, beef, garlic & pineapple) so

I might have some good ideas for people struggling with dairy apparently that happens in early pregnancy?? 
Oatmeal w/ apples baked in & cinnamon
Peanut butter & rice cakes with banana slices and honey. 
Hash browns & ham w/ sliced tomatoes.
Hummus and veggies, for me mostly carrots, Cucomber & cauliflower 
Low sodium potato chips plain 
Fruit salad 
Pickles 🙂 had to add that one xo
Gluten free crackers with peanut butter
Banana bread (homemade, nothing I eat is processed due to concern of contamination & my food allergies) 
Lunch / dinners
(for me these are the same, I always eat leftovers for lunch)
Taco salad, lots of avocado & veggies
Shepards pie
BBQ chicken & potatoes 
Spaghetti & pork meatballs
Butter chicken (dairy free ! )

I’m 27 weeks and just “failed” my glucose test, so I’m currently on a diabetic meal plan to see if that stablizes my sugars.

Soo… looks something like this:

Snack: banana and two cheese string

Lunch: Big greek salad, chicken breast, 1/2 a whole wheat pita, 2 plain yogurts and an apple. 

Afternoon snack – handful of nuts and raw veggies

@StaceyA:  I would have posted my ideas but you and I pack the exact. same. foods. It is almost creepy! haha! The only thing I pack that you don’t have listed is string cheese. I get the Weight Watchers kind and it helps me get some extra protein in!

Here are some of the lunches I have.. I try to mix it up so I don’t get bored:


-Big salad with different vegetables and grilled chicken

-Whole wheat wrap with garlic hummus and vegetables 

-BLT on whole wheat (with the uncured/nitrate free bacon)

-Homemade chicken salad with Rotiseree chicken, red grapes, and celery 

-There are more but I’m drawing a blank right now. I also eat a lot of leftovers for lunch depending on what I had for dinner the night before.

Sandwich, cottage cheese, watermelon, banana, graham crackers, and i bring a gallon of water to drink every day.  but I eat all of this slowly all day long… I dont actually just sit and eat a whole lunch.

Most of the time it is leftovers with the fruit.
