I’m 19 weeks today and feeling great. I saw my acupuncturist and she helped keep everything in alignment and all my pathways open. As the full moon was just upon us, I told her that I might be a little out of wack as I was in rare form over the weekend. She checked my pulses and confirmed that they were a bit funky and so she treated me as such and also addressed some stress that I had come up with in the last few days. She also continued to help me with my lovely varicose vein.

Upon waking from my beautifully peaceful hour with her, my mind wandered to eating, which brought me to this blog. Eating healthy during pregnancy is so important. I truly believe that the healthier you eat the less you have cravings and the better you feel all around. Along with that if you eat well you have less chance of constipation. My husband and I eat pretty healthy and always have. Don’t get me wrong, we go out once or twice a week to local family-owned restaurants and we do love our sweets, but we eat very healthy about 80-90% of the time.

People tend to think it is hard to eat healthy while pregnant. Yes, you will get your moments of craving a certain food, while just a mere mention of another can make you sick. During my first trimester, oatmeal turned into one of those foods, along with certain fish and for the most red meat. Once I got past it I could eat just about anything. The more I eat healthy, the easier it is to keep up a routine of healthy meals. The minute you stray and eat a bunch of crap the harder it is to get back on eating the right meals. Plus you end up craving what your body needs. How many times do you hear of women craving pickles and bananas? Healthy foods, right? They are loaded with the vitamins and minerals you are lacking. Listen to your body, it is always telling you what it needs.

Today, I thought I’d share with you some meals that we typically eat and what our eating looks like from morning ’til night. We eat several small meals throughout the day; once you get the routine down it’s very easy to maintain, and it will keep you regular—constipation is the last thing any pregnant woman wants. Also, you won’t have a ton of pregnancy weight to lose at the end, either!

Day 1 -
Breakfast – 1 slice flax seed bread with 1 tsp of almond butter, 1/2 grapefruit with a little agave nectar, and a berry protein shake (blueberries, blackberries, milk, hemp milk, creamy oat bran, protein powder and yogurt).

Lunch – 1 cup of broccoli, 1 cup of sweet peppers and 4 oz of steak.

Day 2 -
Breakfast – 1 slice flax seed bread with 1 tsp of almond butter, 1/2 grapefruit with agave nectar, and 2 eggs anyway you want.

Snack – 1 glass of fresh spinach, carrot, orange and apple juice. Use a processor and blend one large handful of spinach, 1 cup of carrots, 1 lemon, 2 oranges, and 2 granny smith apples. You won’t believe how good this tastes!

Lunch – 1 cup of broccoli, 1 cup of sweet peppers, and 4 oz of steak.

Snack – 3/4 of a cup of hearts of palm with 1 tsp of olive oil drizzled over the top.

Dinner – 1 cup of asparagus, 1 cup of broccoli and 4 oz of turkey.

Day 3 -
Breakfast – 1 slice flax seed bread with 1 tsp of almond butter, 1/2 grapefruit with a little agave nectar, 1 hard boiled egg or 4 oz of fish and 1 glass of milk.

Snack – 1 small banana, 1/2 cup of cantaloupe and 1/2 cup of yogurt.

Lunch – 1 cup of broccoli, 1 cup of sweet peppers and 4 oz of steak.

Snack – 1 cup of carrots and celery and 2 T. of almond butter.

Dinner – 1 cup of asparagus, 1 cup of broccoli and 4 oz of turkey

After we decide 3 full days of meals and snacks, we just repeat them so that we end up with 6 days of meals with Saturday being an “eat whatever” kind of day. Saturday usually ends up to be a repeat of  one of the better eating days and then we go out for a good meal. You decide what is best for you. This will prevent your blood sugar from crashing, keep your bowels moving, and will decrease your cravings for unhealthy food.

Bon Appetit!
