In addition to all the gross-out foods I listed the other day, I am now completely disgusted by the idea of cooked veggies. Raw veggies are still agreeable to me, thank God. Needless to say, for the past few days my diet has been more fail-eo than paleo.
This is what I dined on yesterday ...
Breakfast: 3 scrambled eggs
Snack: Lara bar
Snack: 1 fuji apple
Lunch: A big green salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, unsalted sunflower seeds, olives and balsamic vinaigrette dressing (I also dipped the cucumbers in a small amount of ranch dressing -- something I would not normally do)
Dinner: Pad Thai, hold chicken and tofu. Essentially, a bunch of rice noodles with peanuts, bean sprouts and Pad Thai sauce. I haven't had noodles or peanuts or a sauce like this in months. It was delicious. Usually, this dinner wold leave me full of regret. Not this time. The alternative is to starve. Or gag.
Today is even worse. I've had a Lara Bar, a biscuit with jam, and a small bowl of mint Coconut Bliss (which is not paleo because it contains agave). For dinner, I'm planning on Caesar salad. It sounds OK now, it could be a different story in three hours. Especially after I prepare dinner for Carl and our two dinner guests -- chicken enchiladas. I hope I can get through it! Carl shredded the chicken and threw away the carcass when I wasn't home, so that will help.
I really, really want to do better with this. I know that the closer I stay to paleo throughout my pregnancy, the better I'll feel and the quicker I'll bounce back. I'm trying right now to figure out a reasonable alternative to get me through the rest of the first trimester (or however long the food aversions last), and this might involve throwing in some dairy. Not ideal, but dairy products are better than grains.
