While I have immense respect for the women who gain 60 pounds while pregnant, then shed it with a bootcamp combo of no-carbs and 2-a-day workouts post-birth... I don't really want to be one of them. I'd prefer to gain a modest 20 to 30 pounds and then shed them with a normal diet, yoga and walks with my brand-new baby in the fall!
This week has really marked the beginning of my Hunger Strike. I've been trying to come up with creative, filling, somewhat healthful meals, especially for lunch, since I'm lucky enough to be able to stop work for an hour to eat and relax at home each day.
So here it is... a look at What This Pregnant Woman Wants*. Be prepared. These are no light lunches for a tidy, girly appetite. This is, after all, a Hunger Strike we're talking about.
Well, I hope you've enjoyed this little peek into my lunch life.
*"Wants." These meals are not completely honest representations of my "wants." If they were, they would include a lot more ice cream and chips. However, since these are not things I indulge in every day when I'm not pregnant, I didn't think now was any time to be starting. I don't want my child to come into this world with a born-in love for Doritos and Cookies n' Cream!
