BBQ, another pound, good weekend

Another week, another pound up - I like that rate and could handle it for the long haul! Apparently the baby is the size of a navel orange this week. Crazy.

I went to a BBQ yesterday, had a burger and pie and kale salad and chips. We were there from 2-10 PM though and I was hungry! No regrets about the tasty food.

I have really healthy (and minimal grain) lunches planned this week - we had a lot of meatball/tomato sauce/broccoli leftovers to pack up. Also peas and a lot of beautiful, cheap, seasonal fruit.

I'm really pleased to be getting back to my old food template more.. However, dairy is a huge component of my diet right now and it is staying for the foreseeable future! I think the calcium and non-meat protein are perfect for me right now. Lots of yogurts, cheeses, and milk right now. Meat is still not my favorite thing right now, so alternate protein sources are needed (and beans are grossing me out too).

Got in a lot of walking, socializing AND relaxing this weekend. Couldn't be happier :)

I'll leave you with a picture of the goose family from my local pond:


  1. It sounds like a great weekend was had and that you are treating your body well. I am so happy for you Jeanette and your pregnancy.

  2. Eggs are inexpensive high quality protein...a hardboiled egg and a few greek olives - a nice snack.

    1. Oh yeah - definitely forgot to mention eggs. I eat eggs a ton, always have!

    2. It sounds like you are doing great. I had a hard time with eating while I was pregnant because all of my usual favorite healthy foods just grossed me out.

  3. How sweet is that photo !

    I just love kale and broccoli ...

    Have a good week and Happy June

    All the best Jan
