Here is list of what I’m eating today for Monkey and me. Everything is organic (of course). Can I just say AGAIN how happy I am to be pregnant. Oh joy joy joy!!!!! I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life. I can hardly contain my excitement… I just want to jump up and down all day (no worries, though, I’m not really doing any jumping).

Over the next week I plan on introducing you to my AWESOME doula, as well as my midwife, plus I will continue to write the foods I’m eating since many of you are interested in that. I also recorded a quick video about growing sprouts. Look for that this week or next. Oh, and I plan on sending out my email newsletter this week. If you’re not signed up yet, you can do so here. There will be plenty of goodies, including a couple of my latest recipes.
1.5 cups Raspberry Leaf Tea
2 cups watermelon
8 oz yellow lentil soup, 4 Tablespoons golden hummus, a lavash cracker, 1/2 cup quinoa
We went to lunch here and it was really good. I wanted to get an all Raw lunch, but they couldn’t serve us that in the limited 1/2 hour my mom and I had… so we chose things from the menu that we’re quick to get served (soup, hummus, quinoa). It’s very good food and I’m eager to go back for the Raw goodies.
1/2 quart Plant Blood (cucumber, cilantro, lime, carrot)
I used my Breville to make this quickly.
1/4 cup raisins
Large Protein Shake (Sun Warrior Rice Protein, Manitoba Harvest Hemp Protein, Amazing Grass Wheat Grass Powder, ground sprouted flax seeds, cinnamon) I have the vanilla flavor rice protein although that link shows you the chocolate. No chocolate for me while I’m pregnant.
Giant Salad: romaine lettuce, chopped red bell pepper and cucumber, sauerkraut, hemp seeds, and topped with left over Fresh Summer Hot Salsa and Elegant Guacamole (salsa and guac pictured here)
If I’m hungry later, I’ll probably snack on prunes and maybe have a glass of cucumber/carrot/spinach plant blood
Other items I had today:
5 tablets Sequel Naturals chlorella
8 tablets Pine’s Wheat Grass
New Chapter PreNatals
