At my monthly prenatal appointment this past week to see our Baby Brown again, the Dr. walked in and congratulated me on doing such a fabulous job at my 10 pound weight gain for being just about half way through this pregnancy. I immediately started laughing not knowing how on earth I only gained 1 pound this entire past month given the fact that I had raided the change jar on our desk for Taco Bell nachos not once, but 4 times last week. I was expecting to get weighed and then cry at what a horrible thing I had done!
After confirming to my Dr. that I do fit in an apple every now and then for the sake of the baby and don’t survive on processed, canned cheese, he assured me that giving in every once and a while is okay, especially if I’m practicing good portion control. Luckily those 89 cent nachos aren’t nearly as big as I would like them to be!
But here’s what sounds good for dinner this week:
- Falafel & Salad
- Southwestern Eggrolls & Brown Rice
- Grilled Pizza w/Ricotta & Pesto
- Wet Bean & Cheese Burritos & Salad
- Pasta, Salad & Homemade French Garlic Bread
- Homemade whole wheat bread
- Breakfast Egg & Cheese Burritos
