Re: do you always eat a healthy balanced meal??

I am the WORST when it comes to preparing meals for just myself (DH works at night). Sometimes I just eat toast for dinner (ezekial bread so it's high in protein) or pita bread with hummus. I just don't have the energy to put into making a meal.

Re: do you always eat a healthy balanced meal??

In the beginning, I had a hard time eating dinner because I was usually felt sick and wasn't hungry. So, I just tried to eat a little something with some nutrition.
Lately, I have been getting better, but there are still plenty of nights when I eat a cheese sandwich for dinner. I work hard to get a lot of nutrition in my lunch and with healthy snacks througout the day, so I don't think it is a big deal not to eat a big meal at dinner time if my body isn't craving it.

I should really be eating more protein but I just don't have an appetite for it. I did have a sausage mcmuffin from mc'ds does that count for protienChat Icon

I have been eating a lot of fast food the past 2 weeks bc I'm too tired to cook.

Re: do you always eat a healthy balanced meal??

I try. I cook most of the time, and when I go out I order a salad or veggie with my dinner. As long as your balanced most of the time, I'm sure you're fine.

not at all.

with DD, i LIVED on chocolate munchkins my whole 3rd trimester. I remember reading an article that said that eating chocolate while PG leads to happy babies- so, i sacrificed my hot bod for a happy kid Chat Icon (i used that as an excuse, but as it turns out, she's the happiest baby ever). So, going into this PG, i was more concerned with sufficient chocolate consumption than my fruits and vegs intake. Chat Icon

Re: do you always eat a healthy balanced meal??

Not so much lately. I eat whatever I want if I want it. Than I feel guilty & go on a healthy food kick. This past week I've been good - veggies, fruit, milk etc.

Last couple of weeks Chat Icon pizza, muffins for breakfast, chips. Good Lord no wonder my as S looks the way it looks Chat Icon

Re: do you always eat a healthy balanced meal??

I don't think I ever have eaten a healthy balanced meal in my life- and this pregnancy is no exception.
I pretty much eat what I like- and most of the time that means there are no veggies- cause I really don't like many veggies.
I eat mainly fat and carbs.

Re: do you always eat a healthy balanced meal??

I used to eat so healthy the first Tri, fruit and dairy every morning, a good lunch, snacks in the middle of the day and a balanced dinner and now there are times I skip meals, grab a granola bar for breakfast and don't eat anything from lunch until dinner.

Only thing I did stick to is taking my pre-natal and drinking water all day.

Re: do you always eat a healthy balanced meal??

I definitely don't, I try, but it doesn't always work out! I am not a huge fan of cooking every night, especially now, but I do try to because I know I should be eating healthy. It's just so much easier to go out and grab something sometimes! As long as it's not all the time, all day, every now and again is ok I'm sure!

No and I feel so guilty about it. I keep saying tomorrow I'll do better but tomorrow comes and eat more carbs and barely any protein.

Re: do you always eat a healthy balanced meal??

i'm just starting to feel like eating fruit and veggies again- for a while, I had zero interest- dairy has always been a problem for me- I really need to start taking my calcuim supplements again but just cant stomach them now
