First full week of morning sickness, or as I like to call it, being completely turned off by food. Nothing is appealing except (sometimes) meat and (way too often times) junk. I feel puffy and bloated from all this not-ideal food. Taken individually, each food alone is not that bad (and hey, didn’t have ice cream for dinner this week), but all together it equals uncomfortable, because even though my body only wants carbs, I do not respond well to carbs.
I also had a realization that I am primarily turned off by cooked vegetables, which is unfortunate because that is the state of most of the vegetables in our home. Well – not anymore! For next week I have prepared a ton of chopped carrots, radishes, celery, broccoli, and sugar snap peas to munch on. Hopefully then if any single one of those becomes unappealing, I can just remove it without too much of a loss. We’ll see.
Breakfasts: Sauteed kale and sausage, eggs and gf toast and cheese, gf pizza
Lunch: Nightshade-free enchiladas (which are the BEST), yogurt with granola and fruit, chicken vermicelli, toast and sunflower butter, egg and pastrami and pumpernickel sandwich
Dinners: Toast and cheese, burgers, gf pizza, and fried chicken tenders
Snacks: White cheddar popcorn, corn chips, pumpkin gelatin gummies, cheese, bananas, apples, oranges, ginger chews, green tea mochis
Drinks: Water, half-caff coffee, Kombucha, fizzy water, water with lemon, water with electrolytes, ginger-steeped water
Yeah, wow, that’s like anti-vegetables right there. And I am definitely feeling it. Toast was sometimes the only slightly appealing thing to eat, but now I’m completely over toast too, so.
I hope my non-cooked vegetable trick works.
