What Would You Do?
Let’s just say you are a pregnant woman, say, 21 weeks and 3 days pregnant. I am just pulling that figure out of my arse 😉
You have eaten your normal amount of pretty healthy, well-balanced food for the day. Fruits, vegetables, nuts etc.
But all you freaking want is carbs. You want a giant donut or bagel or muffin. You want it to be made with white flour and white sugar. The whiter the better (You are a bit of a carb racist today).
However, you pride yourself on eating well and know that your easy-so-far pregnancy is attributable to this. Aside from gaining 8 pounds in 4 weeks, you feel great in your body and like the way things are going.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
Give in to the unhealthy carb craving or hold out for something healthier or just eat what you’ve packed in your lunch? (which is an apple that needs to last you for the next 5 hours). Keep in mind that dinner tonight involves a bagel (ooh, teaser!).
Anyway, earlier today before the Carb Monster began rearing his ugly head, I had some cantaloupe for a snack. It was so tasty and refreshing!
However, I was still hungry, so I ate some crackers I had packed for this afternoon. Whoops!
This seemed to satisfy me until lunchtime when I had my usual salad.
This salad includes:
- Baby spinach
- Green pepper
- Feta Cheese
- Dried apricots
- Sunflower seeds
- Tiny bit of Mediterranean dressing, which is now all gone 😦
I love blueberry, walnut and feta together! The secret is to get them all on the same forkful together. Difficult, but not impossible 🙂
Now I think I will spend the rest of the afternoon having illicit fantasies involving all-purpose flour.
