If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen that we are Team… “YELLOW.”We are having another girl and a baby boy and we couldn’t be happier! Both babies are doing well and are healthy.***
I don’t think I’ve shared a day of its on this blog.
For those who may remember, I use to be “Nutritiously Sweet” before I switched to Fit Coffee Mom. I did a ton of “What I Ate Wednesdays” but then once I got pregnant with Samantha, my day of eats became boring or super receptive.
Not to mention unhealthy some days... #pregnancycravings
For this day of eats, I’ll be sharing one of my work days during this pregnancy!
This post has been requested by some, so here goes nothing. 😉
Pre-breakfast: I usually wake up pretty hungry, so I’ll have either toast or a banana to curb the hunger while I get dressed/ ready for my day.
Breakfast: It varies between Special K’s Red Berries cereal, oatmeal or Nutrigrain whole wheat waffles! For this day, I added a little chia, sunflower seeds, peanut butter, blackberries and splash of pure maple syrup.
Snack #1: I get pretty hungry quick no matter how big of a breakfast I have (because you know twins). I’ll usually do a serving of snap pea crisps with cheese… with coffee. The baby boy in me make craves these salty things!
Lunch: Sometimes I’ll grab lunch from the cafe at work, other times I’ll do a frozen meal or leftovers. I try not to do too many frozen foods, but I do love these Healthy Choice steamers because you can control the sodium.The sauce is separate from the meal. I only add 1/4 of the sauce for flavor and I’ll add a little bit more rice for extra carbs/ energy.
Snack #2: Baby girl gives me those sweet cravings! I’ll usually have some fruit. Lately it’s been red grapes or strawberries.
I’ll also do a couple dark chocolate truffles. #Yum ❤Dinner: I used to have dinner at work before pregnancy, but now I’ll have a “pre-dinner,” of a yogurt with half a bagel and peanut butter. I don’t get home til 8:30pm and I am usually starving.
On these long work days, it something light like an eggwhite sandwich with cheese and maybe even 1/2 of a packet of Shakeology (or Vega Nutrition). I’m still having a terrible time getting nutrients in from veggies, so Shakeology makes up for it! I also usually teach two classes (a barre & Tabata) so I need to refuel as many of those burned calories as I can.
Snack #3: Maybe a chocolate chip cookie [or 3] or some pretzel sticks if I’m feeling a little salty. 😉
That wraps of this post of a pregnancy day of eats! You can see there isn’t too much meat or veggies as I am working my way to get those in.
Eating 5-6 small meals during the day helps to keep the hunger at bay, especially with two little ones hogging my nutrients!
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! 🙂
