I’ve got to admit, it’s going to be interesting transition out of pregnancy eating wise! Over the past 10 months I’ve gone from not wanting to eat much, to craving nothing but carbs, to feeling like myself again, to now not being able to eat enough!
Late 3rd trimester hunger is something else and it makes me wonder what it’s going to be like after the baby arrives (balancing breastfeeding with losing weight). It was difficult at first, feeling like a bottomless pit, but I’ve learned to just take it meal by meal and to listen to my body. This is how I hope to live after the baby arrives, so these last few weeks have been a good test of feeling super hungry and finding a healthy balance.
For this week’s WIAW I’m sharing all of my eats from Tuesday, September 2, 2014 (yesterday).
Breakfast at 7AM – 2 pecan pancakes with syrup and a cup of coffee (breakfast date with Neal at First Watch)

Snack 3 at 6:30PM – Stacy’s pita chips and Tribe rosemary focaccia hummus (THE BOMB)
