  • This baby is obsessed with Lucky Charms.  I will probably never eat a bowl again after this pregnancy (I'm already sick of them), but for some reason I just keep eating them......

  • I'm currently eating like a hobbit, just without supper. @peachy0709, my second breakfast all week has been lucky charms. They're magically delicious!

  • Forgot to mention and TB wont let me edit... I mix my sugary cereal half and half with plain cheerios. Cuts down on the sugar overall while not cutting down on the volume I allow myself to eat.

  • I’m not usually a huge fan of extra cheese, but lately I need cheese on everything!!!

  • Welp, today was 50-cent corn dog day at Sonic. I think I eat *maybe* 2 a year, but when I saw that email come across yesterday, I knew it was going to be my lunch today. That and tater tots and diet Cherry Limeade. I've been mostly avoiding fried foods (I might eat them once or twice a month, normally) because my gallbladder gets ornery during pregnancy, but I was risking it today.

    I think I may end up with Greek yogurt and honey for second lunch. Maybe add granola if I'm feeling crazy.

  • last week I really wanted fried cheese sticks. I got them for lunch from sonic and then regretted it. I usually don't eat fried food and they weren't even that good. 
    Yesterday it was peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies. I ate a peanut butter cup chobani yogurt instead. it did the trick. lol

    Also, still eating way too much take out.

  • @Avrilmai I hate when that happens, you get all excited about something and it doesn’t taste as good as you thought it would or makes you sick. That was a daily occurrence for me in first tri. 
    MamaK225Avrilmai
  • This past weekend DH and I were out for lunch, and they served a watermelon slice with my food. I loved it and immediately started wondering where they got their watermelon. This would be fine and not noteworthy, except for the fact that I don't like watermelon.

    I splurged on Halo Top peanut butter cup today. It's sitting in my freezer waiting for my willpower to disappear.

  • We’re on vacation so I’m eating everything. The B&B we’re staying at includes breakfast and afternoon tea, both of which include baked goods. We had a late lunch (lobster roll and fries for me) and then I never wanted proper dinner, instead I ate half a fritter I’d saved from breakfast and a toffee and chocolate blondie.

  • @zamora_spin - OMG fritters ... I miss those!! <3 So jeally.

    I'm back to my fruit cravings from Tri 1, but basically sticking with bananas (trying not to over do it with the BM issues) and apples with some raspberries and watermelon sprinkled in. It's going to be HOOOOOOOOT over the next 2 weeks, so I'm trying to up my water intake wherever I can.

  • I was "good" and made a granola/Greek yogurt parfait at my desk for breakfast. Not sure if I'm gonna splurge and get some indulgent BBQ for lunch or continue on the path and get a salad. We'll see.

    I'm having a craving for a grocery store bakery birthday cake. Pretty sure I'm going to stop for a mini one on my way home today...and then put it in the fridge and have it cold. I can't wait.
    Also, green apples, still enjoying sandwiches with spicy mustard and lettuce, cottage cheese. 
    Really there's not much food that doesn't make me happy right now :)

    Right? Omg, now I'm thinking I'll probably go to bigger store so I can ask them to decorate it with an obscene amount of frosting flowers.....

    @thirdtimesacharm2019 yes!!! I was trying to think of what my explanation would be....
    MamaK225thirdtimesacharm2019
  • @emqbee whenever someone questions my food choices I tell them it's for the baby. For example
    Other person: 3 donuts?!
    Me: yeah one for me, and two for the baby.

  • I was trying to get DH to decide on a place to eat lunch and I listed 3 or 4 places (we work in a pretty small town), he was like "I really don't want to eat that much" ... helllllloooo! That's why I didn't list any buffets. Not my fault you have zero self-restraint. I was like "well, lunch IS my big meal, so either you eat alone or pick a place and make a good choice." [eye roll]

    BTW - I ended up with a "Southern" burger (pimento cheese, chili, bacon - though I took off the bacon) and it was heavenly. I'm glad I took a preemptive Pepcid ;)

    They wouldn’t add more flowers because it was ‘too small’. Pshhh they coulda made it sloppy. I wouldn’t have cared. It’s as delicious as I hoped!

    mia8263
  • Some other fun things to eat frozen: green grapes and sliced bananas :) However, I'm currently eating DD1's mini Reese's Blast because she opted for cereal. Make way for Mom of the Year ovah hea! :D
