blank'/> A LITTLE BIT OF LACQUER: A Day of Food

June 14, 2013

A Day of Food

I've been getting lots of questions about my diet and exercise habits especially now during pregnancy. 
I figured I'd give you a peak into all of my meals for a day!
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Days I'm not running late I try to include lots of protein and some fresh fruit. 
A go-to is strawberries and 1% cottage cheese with an egg sandwich on a 
low fat whole grain english muffin. So satisfying! 
For a mid-morning snack (especially the days lunch happens much later),  
I have half a peanut butter sandwich on my absolute favorite 15 grain whole wheat bread 
with a cup of skim milk. 
Mid-afternoon I might have the other half of the sandwich if I start to get hungry.
For lunch I'll usually try to be good and bring leftovers from dinner the night before -
of course this means lunch is only healthy if dinner was ;)
This was leftover ratatouille with garlic cous cous (yum!)
I had for lunch with a half cup of fresh blueberries. 
And then dinner.  You can't always plan your meals perfectly and sometimes you end up with pizza
for dinner. I see nothing wrong this, especially when you've been eating well throughout the day!
Enjoy the pizza!
(Not my actual pizza, this actually looks much healthier than mine. At least more veggies...)

So there you have it! An average day of food for me. Not going to bother counting calories because that's not what really matters, more about gaining pregnancy weight at a good, healthy rate, getting enough nutrients for me and baby, and staying active! 

Would love to know if you guys have any other questions or post ideas you'd like to see (besides the usual outfit posts!). 
Thanks as always for reading, and happy Friday!!
