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! 🙂
For breakfast this week, I switched between two combos.
#1: kabocha waffle, kiwi and soy milk
#2: soy milk, kiwi and english muffin with poached egg, arugula and tomato sauce
Lunches at work
#1: curry potato
sauteed kale and roasted squash
I finished them all, which left me over stuffed 👿
#2: roasted chicken thigh, spicy green rice (I think that was a peruvian day)
sauteed bok choy
#3: For days that I have seminar at lunch time, I’d bring a salad. Assorted veggies topped with egg/tofu/canned salmon
a bottle for the olive oil and balsamic, super convenient! 😉
#4 rice vermilleci topped with veggies and shrimp
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.
