I just got on a really long internet search about beans/grains and how they are full or carbs and basically make you fat. I am vegetarian, so these make up a huge part of my diet. Plus, I have always heard they are great for you! I am TTC #1 and want to be as healthy as possible, and also don't want to experience too much weight gain during/after pregnancy. My typical weekday diet is the same every single day:
B: oatmeal with skim milk and chia seeds
L: lentils with spinach, small apple
S2: broccoli, cauliflower, and/or carrots with hummus
large spinach salad with lima beans and corn and 1/2 avocado (1 tbsp. evoo as dressing)
Dessert: 0% greek yogurt with fruit or granola cereal on top, or some other healthy dessert, usually involving Peanut Butter and bananas
So basically, from what I read today, all of these things are pretty bad. Bananas have as much sugar as a can of coke, lentils and limas are full of carbs and make you hold on to fat, and oatmeal and all grains, whole or otherwise, are terrible for you. What are we supposed to do? Its information like this that makes me want to just stop trying. Thoughts?
