I’m back for What I Ate Wednesday! It has been a few weeks since I participated and I took off last Wednesday for good reason – I had just had a baby! That’s right, FW was born June 23 and I’m now a new mom. SO this week includes a random day in the life of a new mom on maternity leave, but with help. B was home this week so I had some help around the house, help with FW and time to prepare my own meals. It was great!
Breakfast was some yogurt, granola (my mom had made it and brought it when she came to visit) AND a huge fruit salad. I’m still on a fruit kick and my parents bought me a ton of fruit when they came and visited and we were given leftover fruit salad from our Fourth of July bbq, so of course I had to have some.
I had a midmorning snack of some sushi. I ended up eating only 3 of these pieces that were leftover but they were good!
B and I then went for a walk with FW. We’ve been taking daily walks with him and enjoying the sunny weather and being home during the day.
For lunch, I couldn’t decide what I wanted. Something sweet? Savory? Leftovers? So I had a bunch of random stuff in our fridge – veggies and hummus (B’s mom had made some hummus and brought it over for us), fruit and cheese, bread and peanut butter and a runny egg with toast. It is SO NICE to eat runny eggs again!
For an afternoon snack I had a peach.
For dinner, I decided to once again use some of the supplies we had in the fridge and made ginormous salads and flatbread pizza. We had pizza Friday night and still had some cheese, homemade sauce and cheese – AND still had some naan from when B’s mom brought it over (to go with aforementioned hummus), and it made for a really good homemade dinner. Oh, and while preparing dinner I snacked on some fresh super soft mozzarella and pepperoni. Only mozzarella is pictured – sorry it’s not super photogenic 🙂
And for dessert? B and I shared some Mitchell’s ice cream – this is one of my favorite flavors!
Some questions for you:
- What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?
- Pregnant people and moms – did you have cravings during or post-pregnancy? Did they stay the same?
