Last Monday I started living out my plan to get my pregnancy diet back on track. When I say “diet”, I don’t mean weight loss plan, I’m just referring to my daily food intake. My goal was to eat the following each day and to allow myself two “cheat” meals on the weekend.
The Plan (each day)
2-3 cups of veggies
2 pieces of fruit
4 four oz portions of protein (eggs, lean meat, dairy, legumes)
2 servings of grains (one of which being oatmeal)
Lemon water and pregnancy tea to drink
Overall, I’m really happy with my diet this week! I feel really great and know that I’m fueling my body and the baby. I am going to continue to follow this plan and hope that it sustains me for the rest of my pregnancy.
