Food: what we’ve been eating


Let’s see how I am fueling for Sofia during the last two weeks. I think I gained a little room in my stomach as Sofia has dropped. And I want to deliver a normal weight baby (6-7 lbs), so I’m eating with all my abilities despite lack of appetite. My mom is doing a great job on preparing dinners that are varied and nutritious.

For breakfast I’ve been having this mess combo that I like quite a lot. Chocolate almond milk

in this messy bowl: 1 large peach, 2/3 cup greek yogurt, 1 cup kamut puff, 1 tbsp Tj’s raw almond butter cream

a perfect combination of protein, fat and carb. 🙂

Last weekend I prepared a dinner for the photographer of the maternity pics.

  1. Wow, what a beautiful spread of food that meal is! The breakfast cookies look pretty delicious too. My favorite afternoon snack is usually a piece of fruit and a small handful of nuts. 🙂

  2. Pork filled tofu puffs? How good do those sound??? Yummy cookies, too! Usually in the afternoon I eat fruit as a snack and maybe some sort of crackers…

  3. chocolate nut cookies sound awesome!
