This is a just for fun post and somewhat of a throwback to the old days of blogging. When I first started reading blogs, I think 90% of the ones I followed were about food and nutrition, so once a week the author would do a post like this one.
Seeing what someone eats in a day has the same level of satisfaction we get when we slowly drive by a stranger’s house and creep to see what their living room looks like through the window 😂Try to convince me you don’t ever do that…
Anyway, my strategy with my daily eats is to get as much fiber and fresh fruit as I possibly can while making sure I get adequate protein. Also, in my non-pregnant state, I don’t eat nearly as much dairy as I do right now and I’m also not overly strict in general.
Here’s a day of what I’d consider semi-indulgent eats!
Meal 1: 9:30am: Oatmeal
Meal 2: 2:15pm: Lunch
Snacks @ 4:15pm & 5pm:
Meal 4: Dinner @ 7:30pm:
“Meal” 5: Dessert @ 9:30pm:
And there you have it! On a typical day, I wouldn’t have ice cream and definitely not in such a large quantity, but this is just one snapshot of a day in the life. My main meals & snacks generally look pretty similar with one obvious thing missing: WATER. I drink 3-4 liters of water a day while pregnant because I also usually either workout or do yoga. Plus, not pictured is my GIANT prenatal vitamin, haha! This was a Sunday, so I took the day off except for a nice long walk ☺️
Over to you! What’s your go-to menu for a typical day in the life?
