Food: breakfast and lunch


Last week I’ve been specially careful on eating well and taking pics of the food because I’m approaching the 20 weeks mark (this Wednesday):shock:, and I need to get the nutrients delivered to the baby. I’ve started to track my food intake to make sure that I get enough protein, calcium and iron since they are super important for baby’s development, and because if I don’t remind myself, I’d miss these nutrients. I’m not vegetarian but my natural preference is toward vegetables and whole grains, therefore making sure to get 70-100g of protein everyday is a challenge. Fortunately, once I set up a target, I make sure to meet the target EVERYDAY! ๐Ÿ™‚

For breakfast this week, I switched between two combos.

#1:ย kabocha waffle, kiwi and soy milk

#3: For days that I have seminar at lunch time, I’d bring a salad. Assorted veggies topped with egg/tofu/canned salmon

As afternoon snack, I tried some sweet potato chips, which were quite good, not so greasy and super crunchy.

Q: What’s the nutrient that you’re naturally deficient of? In my case, protein and iron because I’m not a big meat eater.

    I definitely don’t get enough iron in my diet. I don’t eat very much meat…I’m sure this is why! And you’re half way there!!! YAY!
