I thought we ate pretty well at Johnny Carinos. We had a lovely date and I didn't feel gross afterwards like I often do after eating out. I don't worry about a little white bread here or there. :) We finished our date at home with some Breyer's ice cream. I love that it only has a few ingredients. Much less junky than most store-bought ice cream!
Unfortunately none of my whole grains were soaked or sprouted or soured. I've been very tired, my husband has been very busy, and I haven't been baking very much. I'm trying to get back into it this week - I have some sourdough cookies and biscuits (from the GNOWFGLINS sourdough e-book) souring right now, and plans to make granola bars from Healthy Snacks To-Go soon!
Three super snacks were consumed on this day: Apple-Flax Muffins, Silky Smooth Bean Fudge, and a Strawberry Orange Julius (recipe coming soon). They are the sort of thing that has been getting me through my extreme hunger!
Are you pregnant? What are you eating to nourish yourself and your baby? What are your biggest challenges?
