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.


cucumber salad


bok choy


seaweed salad


red sauce pork


chicken feet marinated


spicy sauteed potato


spicy red sauced whole fish


They loved the food and I loved the photo session and the company. 🙂

A typical dinner spread prepared by mom


winter melon tomato black fungus soup (I’m having this 2-3 times a week to avoid swelling, so far it works)


sauteed broccoli with mushrooms and smoked tofu


pork filled tofu puffs


porridge made with chinese sausage, brown rice, bok choy and shiitake mushroom


my mom’s favorite soup: pork balls, black fungus and glass noodles, with a lot of spicy sauce


Last weekend I baked some chocolate-nuts cookies for Star’s breakfasts. He likes it a lot! 🙂

2. Beat sugar with butter, add eggs
