Day of Eats: Pregnant Edition

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen that we are Team… “YELLOW.”20170717_155045We are having another girl and a baby boy and we couldn’t be happier! Both babies are doing well and are healthy.20170717_155043***

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! 18671124_10103006128830590_2326381334240356815_nFor 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. 20170726_163407The 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.20170728_075433The 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! 20170726_162240I’ll usually have some fruit. Lately it’s been red grapes or strawberries.

I’ll also do a couple dark chocolate truffles. #Yum 20170726_162005Dinner: 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. 20170720_100921I 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). 20170728_075404I’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! 🙂
