Hello! It has been a while! I promised myself that I would not let this blog stress me out, and, instead, energize me. Today, I felt the need to share!
Life has been busy, relaxing, busy, and then relaxing. We seem to have days where we are super busy doing stuff for our little guy and the house, and then there are days where we binge watch our shows on Netflix and kind of do and think about nothing. It’s been a nice balance. I would definitely say we are nesting though. Tyler has been amazing! He might be nesting more than me.:)
Speaking of our little guy, I start my third trimester next Wednesday. I honestly can’t believe it! This. Is. Happening! To be honest, I am getting nervous, but I am also so excited to meet him.
As for what I have been eating lately, well, I have been craving really satisfying meals and snacks. There are two things that I have been making…a lot. Both leave me and Tyler feeling very satisfied. They are both filled with nutrients but don’t weigh us down.
The first thing I have been making is a peanut butter banana chocolate smoothie in the afternoon. The stretch between lunch and dinner is waaaaay to long for this mama.
1 cup almond milk, 1 frozen banana, 1 heaping spoon of peanut butter, 1 tablespoon cacao, a handful of ice, and topped with Purely Elizabeth granola (sometimes I add a scoop of Vega’s Vanilla Protein Smoothie and a handful of spinach)
Our other favorite weekend lunch is this amazing Spicy Avocado and Chickpea Salad Sandwich from Vegan Richa. I serve it as an open faced sandwich on gluten free bread.
Look at all of those plants!
We are headed out to buy a rug for our room (finally), and tomorrow we are going to a childbirth class. Eek! I’m a little scared about what we are going to learn, but I guess that is why they offer classes. Might as well be as prepared as possible.
Have a great weekend!
