Menu Plan : Feb 9

I’m so excited to finally have a blender again! I was able to find a replacement pitcher online so it was much cheaper than buying a whole new one. So now we can have smoothies! I’ve also been a bit more tired this last week, so I’m definitely going easy in the kitchen for a bit. And I don’t know exactly what fruit and veggies we’ll be having until I get a good look at the ads for this week. Luckily though, all of our meat is from the freezer and I also have a good supply of staples on hand so there won’t be to much to buy!

As for the in’s and out’s of what I eat during pregnancy:

  1. Everything is full fat, none of this low fat stuff. Better for me and better for baby.
  2. I try and eat organic produce when I can fit it into my budget. I also try not to be to picky about it since eating any produce is better than none at all!
  3. I stay away from things like high fructose corn syrup and MSG.
  4. I make all of my bread products from home so I know they’re healthy and free from preservatives.
  5. I also try my best to eat a very low to no sugar diet. Not only does this help me feel better, I’m not loading up baby with extra sugar.

    What a great menu. I love the way you have your snacks planned out and everything. My husband was on this exercise program last year, and I had all his meals & snacks planned out like that. I can't imagine doing it for myself though, it would be too tempting to just grab a snack at the last second!

  2. I’m pregnant too, and I really like your idea of planning snacks. Or at least to have a list of snacks even if I don’t plan them out for every day. Too often I end up just grabbing some crackers, which helps, but isn’t the best.

  3. It really is a great idea to plan all meals and snacks! I’ve made a meal plan before, but usually only dinner. When do you make your meal plan for the week?

    Thanks!

  4. I normally plan out my menu Sunday afternoon. It’s become a ritual now. :-) We eat, the kid sleeps, and I look through the ads for the week! A lot of times though the actual “plan” isn’t done till Monday morning, cause mama needs a good Sunday afternoon nap too!

  6. Wow, you’re eating a ton. When I was pregnant, all I wanted and could keep down was meat LOL. I was eating meat breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s so nice to come visit the blogs from the Bloggy Carnival now that I have time to both read and comment.
