Today I am going insane. I’ve been stuck inside waiting for our new fridge-freezer to be delivered and with only store cupboard food to eat. The people delivering our fridge are also taking away the old one. And there’s only so much sitting around and eating carbs I can manage. I think all of this is compounded by the fact that I’m on night shifts this week so I feel like all I’ve done is eat, sleep and work. Not good for one’s physical or mental health. I feel like my body’s turning to mush. Doesn’t help that I’m in the looking-fat-rather-than-pregnant stage. Plus, morning sickness is back so the only thing I can do to get rid of it is eat.
However, up until today we’ve been trying to clear out our fridge and freezer so there have been some vegetables in my diet. Thank goodness!
A DHA top-up salad. Twas good.
This was a weird dinner. I made some soup a couple of weeks ago which tasted rubbish. But I hate waste so I decided to freeze it anyway. Since we’re clearing out the freezer I thought I may as well use it. I just added some frozen veg, curry powder and tomato ketchup to make a dahl-like curry dish, with some naan bread on the side. I really should not eat naan bread. This was half a large one. You bet I went back for seconds and thirds of everything.
Yesterday’s lunch was simply brown rice, frozen veg (steamed), and a veggie burger topped with my new fave sun-dried tomato dip (recipe to come).
And there you have it. Unfortunately, a lot more unhealthy foods were consumed between these healthy ones. Shame. It can only get better… except on my nights again tonight. At least it’s just one 🙂
