Hey everyone! It’s been a long time since I blogged and I’ve started missing it a lot lately, so I’m going to try and slowly get back into it. I thought I would start again with this What I Ate blog post, although you might have seen the meals on my youtube channel already if you follow me there. I was gonna post it last Wednesday, but I completely forgot. Can I blame the pregnancy brain for that?! Haha! 🙂 And – well – you can’t post a What I Ate Wednesday on a Friday…it’s just unnatural, haha! Hope you enjoy it!
BREAKFAST – 7 a.m.
For breakfast I had quite a simple but filling option: oatmeal with a banana, some blueberries and chia seeds on top. It’s one of my favourite breakfasts and I basically just throw in there whatever fruit we currently have in the house. I also took my prenatals (I take the Natalvit ones) and I had a latte macchiato on the side.
SNACK – 11 a.m.
Since getting pregnant I discovered that I can’t go as long between meals, so around this time I either have to have a snack or have my lunch early. I get so hungry by 11 a.m. that you would think I haven’t eaten in ages. If I have my lunch too late I will get really lightheaded and dizzy, so I try to avoid that by eating more frequently throughout the day. For today’s snack I had a Nakd bar, the ginger bread kind. I can’t say that I liked this one very much, so I only had a few bites of it. I’ve also tried the apricot type and I much prefer that one.
LUNCH – 1 p.m.
On this day I had a panini with ham and cheese, which I toasted in a panini maker/electric grill. I love these sesame seed breads, they’re so delicious and they’re perfect for my paninis. On the side I had some cucumber and cherry tomatoes.
SNACK – 3:30 p.m.
Yes, I had another snack later on…I feel like I’m constantly snacking on something these days. I had about 5-6 pistachios and two oatmeal cookies.
DINNER – 6:30 p.m.
For dinner I didn’t really feel like cooking something too complicated, so I just went with a simple pasta dish. It’s basically penne pasta with tomato sauce and cheese sprinkled on top. Super simple and quick!
SNACK – 9 p.m.
I had to have a late night snack, because I was actually still feeling a bit hungry and didn’t want to wake up in the middle of the night with a growling stomach. So I had an apple with a spoonful of peanut butter, a bit of pineapple and two of those oatmeal cookies. I try to keep my snacks semi-healthy, although some days they’re basically just chocolate or something sweet.
That’s about it for today’s meals! I hope you enjoyed this blog post. Let me know if you did, so that I know if I should do more or not. Have a great day!
