Tomorrow is another day
I bring this entry to you with one full belly. And I’m not just talking about the baby in there. I’m talking about the lentils, the chocolate, the cheese, the crackers, and the ice cream. Oy.
Dinner was absolutely awesome, though! I made Snobby Joes, per The Fitnessista‘s recommendation, and it was absolutely amazing! This is my second lentil recipe in so many weeks and again I was very impressed. Lentils are full of so much fibre and protein, they almost seem too good to be true.
Seriously, I cannot talk lentils up enough. Lentils should be this blog’s mascot!
I had the snobby joes on a bagel (both halves, only the beginning of my night of eating too much!) along with some local, steamed asparagus. Local asparagus is so much skinnier than, uh, foreign.
After eating this, I think went back and had a few more spoonfuls. Then I had a bit of Husband’s. Then I grabbed a few spoonfuls of leftover Greek Pasta salad. A few hours later, I had a few squares of chocolate. Then I had two slices of cheese and some crackers. Then I had a small chocolate-dipped cone from Dairy Queen.
I think I don’t eat enough through the day. I am going to try to beef up my breakfast, as well as my morning snack. Instead of just having a piece of fruit or some veggies, I will try to get some more protein and fibre in there as well (an apple + almonds or blueberries + granola bar etc.). I feel like my body is starting to require that extra 300-500 calories a day that comes with being pregnant (hence this afternoon’s Carb Attack) and I am more than willing to oblige it. I just hope to oblige it with more lentils and less Dairy Queen (well, most of the time, anyway!).
