Now that I’m eating for me and Tiny Tong, I’ve been trying to make some better food choices, and since I obviously won’t be able to keep my New Years Resolution (lose weight. Ha!) I figured I could at least get into better eating habits NOW, so that come September it will be an easy transition into eating healthy, low calorie and hopefully burn off that baby weight before we get snowed in for the winter.
Mostly it’s making sure I’m getting plenty of colorful fruits and vegetables. I’ve been eating grapefruits for breakfast, and I really think I need to go buy a grapefruit spoon, because man, those things are hard to eat with a regular spoon. Another favorite (and always makes me feel better!) is kiwi. I love kiwis.
I would eat those things all day long if they weren’t so expensive. Oh! Also and Pink Lady Apples. Those with a spoonful of peanut butter make a good mid-morning snack!
All of my food cravings have really just been for tart fruit, which I suppose is a pretty good craving to have! I’ve been having some major meat aversions, chicken has been tasting pretty gross since the beginning of the pregnancy, but in the last 4-5 days beef has really gone downhill for me, so it might be a struggle for me to get enough iron, but I am hoping to balance it out with my vitamins. (I got some gummy ones, here’s to hoping those won’t make me feel as sick!)
Any other moms have any great tips for good things to eat in the first trimester that won’t make you feel awful? (and that don’t have meat?) You should definitely leave me a comment and tell me what worked for you!
