I've been trying to eat a lot of healthy fresh foods lately. Not that you shouldn't eat healthy all the time but I think it is especially important when you are pregnant. My main drive for doing this is my energy levels. They have been super low lately and since I can't just pop open a redbull, I need to find other sources to give myself more energy. I find that when I eat fresh food and drink tons of water my energy always goes up. So, I thought I'd share my favorite lunch and breakfast meal with you in case you need a little healthy inspiration.
2 big handfuls of baby spinach
1 frozen banana (I wait until mine start to go brown and then peel them and freeze them in sandwich bags)
1-2 tbsp of Better N' Peanut Butter
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup of almond milk
If you don't have a frozen banana you can use a fresh one but throw a couple of ice cubes in with the mix. Also I think it's important to put your spinach on the bottom so the rest of the ingredients weigh the spinach down so that it chops finer.
Veggie Lunch Plate
This lunch is easy fresh and delicious. Just get a bunch of your favorite raw veggies and sprinkle with salt, pepper & balsamic vinegar. On this plate I have tomatoes, baby spinach and bell peppers. Then get a few pieces of sesame Melba Toast and spread on some hummus and top with sliced cucumbers. Sooo good- even Aubs approves but then again she will eat pretty much anything that I put balsamic vinegar on.
Make sure you stop by tomorrow for my big gender reveal! The baby was a little shy at first but then started to show off towards the end so we got a pretty clear shot of his/her goods.
