Snacking all day and #WIAW

Meals lately can be more described as snacking. All. Day. Long.  I don't feel super hungry like I used, the kind of I am going to kill you if I don't get food into me this very second but I do get hungry. And it is often. 

I am pretty lazy at this point when it comes to putting things together so basically all day long it is mix and match of snack.  This has added up to some pretty darn good options.  

Breakfast is still a green smoothie. I finished up the last of the banana bread granola. Contemplating whether or not to make more before or after the baby comes?!?!  Also ground flax seed makes for a thicker smoothie. I was told to up my fiber right now and and adding two tablespoons to my morning smoothies is my current method. 

English muffin pizzas for lunch. Why yes please. So simple and so delicious. This is a classic that will never be bad in my book.

Also a classic is an egg and cheese sandwich. This homemade version was way better than the one from last week which cost $4.  Double the egg and topped with fresh basil. I had this at 11am. Does it make it a late breakfast or an early lunch?

This weekend we hit up our local Indian restaurant for their Sunday lunch buffet. It is a favorite for Mr. J and I thought he deserved a treat. My other motive was spicy food. Bring on the baby. I am not sure I succeeded though. My choices were much more mild than I intended. #FAIL

Another quick and easy snack I have been having lately is plain yogurt with M&M trail mix from Archer Farms.  Almost dessert.  I have this around 3pm to get me to dinner time. It takes all of 1 minute to put together.  Funny, I got the trail mix for Mr. J to have at the hospital for a snack option. I made him swear not to eat any ahead of time being afraid it was going to be gone. Now I am the one snacking away.

Here is my other attempt at spicy food. A plate full of nachos with the spiciest salsa in our pantry.  Fingers crossed it helps jump start my labor. 

And now for the one meal we did create this week. Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, broccoli and carrots.  An American classic for sure. Mr. J sure loved it and we had plenty of leftovers for tonight's dinner!  That's a win in my book.

What is your favorite snack?  What did you eat Wednesday?


  1. Banana bread granola? I need to get my hands on something like that ! I love banana anything! Also, my mom makes me English muffin pizzas when I am home (currently at college), so I just got super nostalgic! They are sooooo good!

  2. Ooh I want meatloaf now!

    Yogurt & trail mix has been my go-to snack for the past two weeks. I can't get enough. My Kroger has this trail mix with pumpkin seeds, almonds, craisins, raisins, and sunflower seeds that I've been loving lately.

    Also while in the hospital, I got oatmeal for breakfast, but they only gave me two packets of sugar (and that went in my coffee), so I used yogurt to sweeten my oatmeal and that ended up being one of the best things I've eaten in my life and also a staple of my postpartum diet. Oats are supposed to be good for breastmilk supply, so I guess it's good that's all I snack on! LOL.

    Sending labor vibes your way!
