Howdy, pals! I’m 23 weeks pregnant this week and having all kinds of fun symptoms like shortness of breath, endless burping, and charlie horses at night. I will be writing a full second trimester recap, don’t you worry.
My current challenge is deciding what stroller to get, so if you have strong feelings about one, let me know! I’m leaning toward one that converts for two kids because we want to have our kids close together.
For now, let’s talk good eats!
Lovely Meals and Snacks Lately
Whole Foods brand blueberry waffles with fresh blueberries, peanut butter and maple syrup.
I made a sweet potato black bean version of my beloved pumpkin walnut burgers, which I’ll be sharing with you soon!
I was craving mint chocolate so I made an amazing smoothie with frozen banana, frozen zucchini, spinach, cashew butter, cacao, chocolate plant protein, peppermint extract, and coconut water + almond milk. I forgot to take a photo post blend!
Apple cinnamon swirl bread heated up from the freezer with coffee in the morning. It freezes super well.
Black bean and shiitake veggie burger at Alchemy with all the fixings.
Shrimp curry with green beans and peppers from our CSA served with brown rice. Delish!
Have you ever made a s’more with a dark chocolate peanut butter cup? Amazing!
Overnight steel cut oatmeal with Honeycrisp apples, peanut butter, maple syrup and salt. It tastes like a caramel apple!
Creamy butternut squash pasta with peas. This is a throwback recipe I love that comes together really quickly, especially if you use frozen pre-cut squash. Great with hot sauce.
Pumpkin muffins on repeat! I have a new super easy flourless version coming soon that you’re going to go bonkers for.
Paulie Gee’s Detroit-style square pizza (one cheese and one pep) for a Friday night treat. I always heat it up on the stovetop when we get home so it’s extra crispy. The honey takes it over the top…seriously the best ever!
Lentil soup (I subbed sweet potatoes since I had a bunch) and leftover pizza for a nice Sunday lunch.
Things I’m Loving Lately
WEARING: If you need new Ugg’s this winter, these are all 30% off. I got these slippers for Jeff. Loving this vintage crew neck that comes in so many cute patterns! This long leopard cardigan is so cozy.
READING: I’m excited to start There’s No Such Thing as Bad Weather, which came highly recommended for moms-to-be!
LISTENING: I’m loving Calm Guitar on Spotify while I work.
Have an amazing week, pals!
