Protein, protein, protein! What are you eating?

I am noticing what I think is a big difference so far in this pregnancy - I eat a LOT of protein and have basically since DD was born and started nursing two years ago. Before that, and in my last pregnancy, I ate too many grains and carbs. I feel SO much better now. I feel full longer and don't need to eat as much. I'm doing sausage and eggs for breakfast, Greek yogurt, nuts and fruit for a snack, and will have some leftover paella for lunch... Yum! Hoping this will keep from gaining 50 lbs again this time! Ugh.

I am dying for a huge Jersey Mike's sub, though. I miss deli meat so much when I'm preggo. I don't have any other cravings yet. Last pg I ate two or three whole raw green bell peppers every day. It was so weird. I just had to have them.

What are YOU eating?

I found this non fat greek yogurt that has more protein? It is really good, one of my favorite snacks. I have been eating oatmeal for breakfast everyday, and I bought some pre-cooked chicken and I have been having it in a salad with avocado, lettuce and tomato. I also snack on fruit and nuts. I gained so much weight with my other two kids I hope I do not gain it this time

Not much honestly. I know it's bad but I have zero appetite and I'm so tired. I choke down milk and my prenatal in the morning I try and eat some nuts for a snack and maybe sausage and spaghetti noodles with butter and parm for dinner. I just don't want anything but a nap!

Re: Protein, protein, protein! What are you eating?

I am pro fat and pro protien, I gained 56lbs last time, (me doc told me to gain 50 becuase he thought I was underwieght then I ended up with gestationl diabetes and liver failure because I gained too much wieght) not doing that again. I am trying to keep it low carb. I had a major sweet tooth last ime, but I ate a candy bar last night and it didn't even taste good, so maybe that is a good thing.

well whenever I complain of nausea to my DH, he always offers me some "protein"... that's the last thing I want to do. GAG!

Eggs! I used to hate them, but every morning now when I wake up the first thing I do when I walk in the kitchen is reach for a hard boiled egg.

Well, so much for MY protein kick - this morning just the mention of eggs and sausage almost made me hurl. Had a plain bagel instead. Ahh, hello, first trimester...

Ugh. Meat or eggs of any sort makes me want to hurl. Right now, all I can really stomach is a bowl of Rice Crispies with a banana. I gained 58 lbs last time and am starting out 9 pounds heavier this time, so I'm hoping to be super good about eating and exercising.
