My pregnancy diet

I figure since I haven’t shared a menu in awhile, I’d show you all what my normal weekly food consumption looks like. I’m 27 weeks along (give or take) so I eat quite a bit during the day to keep my meals small so as not to get heartburn or that overly full feeling. It also helps stabilize the blood sugar a bit more, which is important in regulating hormones. Plus it helps me keep my energy up so that I can chase around a toddler all day!

This week I have a bunch of leftover turkey to use since I roasted a very large one up last week, so you’ll see that a bit more than normal! My husband is also trying out a gluten free diet at the moment so our dinners are normally gluten free so that he doesn’t miss out on anything I serve.

    Oh, this was so helpful to me. Can I twist your arm in getting you to post your menus every week? :)

    And is there anyway I could get your muffin recipe?
