Good morning and happy Wednesday!
My day started bright and early thanks to an 8am doctor appointment for Baby G. I grabbed a big bottle of water, a decaf coffee and my green juice from Trader Joes for my drive.
The appointment went really well! I am right on track and so is Baby G. Yesterday my doctor pulled out a measuring tape to measure the size of my belly. It was so funny! Apparantly from here forward that is how we will track the size of Baby G.
When I finished, I headed downstairs to the amazing cafeteria for breakfast. I love being able to eat at the hospital because they have fresh, organic, made to order meals all day long that are delicious. For breakfast I wanted something filling so I went with the organic, cage free veggie omelette with fresh toast and turkey bacon.
I made it through half before calling it quits. I was more than satisfied thanks to the salty bacon and hot sauce on the eggs (a must!).
This picture was snapped in the car because I had to scoot off to get my tires rotated a few minutes after I wrapped my doctor appointment. The rest of the morning was spent running a million errands.
Have you ever noticed that when you are super busy you don’t get as hungry? I was so busy all morning that it wasn’t until I saw the clock read 1pm that I knew it was time to eat. Sometimes my body doesn’t tell me I am hungry, but I know that putting in some energy will help me from crashing in the afternoon.
Whole Foods was around the corner, so I swung in for a trip to the cold bar.
I stuck to a ton of veggies (no limit on the clean good stuff) and added in some chickpeas for protein. Because I wasn’t super hungry I like to add a lighter protein such as legumes, hard boiled eggs or tofu. For me, they don’t feel as heavy in my stomach and aren’t as difficult for me to digest.
A recycled photo because I snacked on a ton of watermelon when I returned home. Yup, standing up, slice after slice – totally hit the spot!
I was pretty tired so I stuck with a throw together and go type dinner.
Simply make a batch of quinoa, steam green beans and then roast some cherry tomatoes and shrimp. Once the quinoa was done I drizzled it with a mix of lime vinegar, olive oil, chopped garlic, S&P.
The meal was really good and was on the table in 20 minutes. Can’t beat that!
When you are running around or on the road, what type of food do you eat?
What is your favorite fruit?
Do you ever change up your proteins?
