Baby Bump 21 weeks 5 days.
I thought I would share some healthy meals and snacks that I have made in the past week or so. This is my second meal/snack post. Like I said last time I love to see what other people are making because sometimes you just need some help deciding what to make or need some inspiration.
Hydration is key! Start your day with at least 8 ounces.
My favorite way to flavor water is to throw in some cut up strawberries and lemons (limes are great too!). Aim for half of your body weight in ounces every day.
Breakfast: Most important meal of the day, fuel up! :)
French Toast: made with whole wheat raisin bread, egg whites, almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla & almond extract. Served with a few strawberries on the side which Mollie ended up stealing. :)
Strawberry Lime Protein Pancakes with a side of sliced strawberries.
Tone It Up - Egg White Scramble with spinach, zucchini, mushrooms and green peppers. Slice of whole wheat raisin toast with non-dairy butter spread.
Kashi whole grain waffle with 1 T natural peanut butter and green apple slices. This would make a good mid-morning snack too!
naVeggie pasta with spinach chicken sausage, green beans, carrots, fresh mushrooms and 1/4 C spaghetti sauce. Top with a little low fat mozzarella cheese. I made this for Jason the other day to take to out to work.
Homemade turkey burger (lean turkey, chopped spinach, egg whites & Mrs. Dash). Serve on whole wheat bread with lettuce, pickles, provolone and organic ketchup. Side of grapes not pictured.
Snacks, snacks, snacks! :)
Choc Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie
Fruit salad & Lemon Chobani 0% greek yogurt
Snacks to go: Chobani and 1/4 C granola, water with strawberries & limes and a pear.
Grapes, sliced apple and cheddar cheese (pregnancy craving big time!).
Green Julius (heathly verson of orange julis)
Plum & water...that's simple right!?
Grilled chicken and roasted veggies.
Homemade pizza on whole grain crust with spinach, green peppers, mushrooms, canadian bacon and low fat mozzarella cheese.
Turkey Loaf made with lean ground turkey, egg whites, chopped spinach, pepper, Mrs. Dash, garlic and dry mustard. Topped with 2 T BBQ sauce.
Have a great day!! :)
