The Sailor Man would have been proud with the amount of spinach I snuck in throughout the day yesterday…
I was in need of something filling and comforting, and this hit the spot! It’s half of a Thomas’ Whole Wheat bagel with 2 Tbsp of JIF Natural Peanut Butter, half of a banana and a solid sprinkling of Chia seeds. Gotta love getting in some omega-3s with breakfast!
*Also, I had 1 cup of orange juice, which is unpictured because my sweet Hubbs brought it to me while I was still in bed. Sometimes my blood sugar is a little low in the mornings if I sleep for a while, and OJ helps give me a boost. Oh pregnancy…
Lunch started with leftover Zucchini, Basil and Shrimp Pasta (recipe to come!), which I heated up over a bed of spinach before mixing it all together.
Plus, a hummus snack plate with a few Juice Plus Gummies on the side!
True to form, I snacked throughout the afternoon…
Self explanatory above, followed by a simple egg salad, which I made up as I went along. 2 boiled DHA eggs, celery, 1/2 Tbsp Smart Balance light mayo, mustard and a cut up dill pickle slice… served on spinach, of course.
Then, there was more hummus. Creamy Sabra, you sucker me in every time!
We really do eat a lot of (homemade) pizza, and last night the craving struck again! Started off with a simple spinach salad with tomato, feta, kalamata olives, onions and Newman’s Light Balsamic…
And ended with homemade veggie pizza, made with a new New York Styles crust recipe I tried out, topped with broccoli, spinach, roasted garlic, onions, peppers and fresh mozzarella. I had 2 slices.

I’d like to have protein be a higher percentage of my calorie total, especially with all the brain development going on with Baby D this week, but overall, I’m happy with yesterday’s eats 🙂
Best thing you ate yesterday?
I’m always looking for new ideas 🙂
