My Pregnancy Diet; 26 weeks pregnant

Wow, another week passes, and another inch on the waist. I’ve certainly got a little bump now – and brought my first pair of maternity jeans and maternity tops. Why I didn’t do that sooner, I will never know. They are soooooo comfy! I brought a lovely collection of bits from Next and couldn’t recommend it enough. I feel like I’m embracing the bump now rather than trying to dress it in baggy clothes!!

I’m still following the Gluten Free diet and loving the benefits. I feel more energised and less bloated. Two common complaints in pregnancy, so how fab is that!?

Here is what I have been eating over the last few days. BFree foods, you have been a life saver!

Breakfast:
Banana & Peanut Butter Smoothie
1 banana
2 teaspoons of peanut or almond butter
Handful of spinach
Tbsp of flaxseed
300ml of water or almond milk
Snack: Chopped apple with peanut butter
Lunch: Roasted Red Pepper and Hummus Pitta
Snack: Sugar snap peas with GF Hummus
Dinner: Chicken & Broccoli Bake (serves 4)
4 Chicken Breasts
Head of Broccoli
Tin of coconut milk
Chicken stock: ENSURE STOCK IS GF
2 slices of BFree brown loaf (for bread crumbs – blitz in blender)
Chop up chicken fillets and fry in pan with a teaspoon of coconut oil until
white. Add in Broccoli for 3-4 minutes. Add in tin of coconut milk and chicken
stock (use 100 ml to mix stock). Place the mixture in an oven proof dish and
sprinkle breadcrumbs on top. Bake for 40 minutes. Sprinkle with a handful of
mozzarella cheese after 30 minutes for the final 10 minutes of baking.
Breakfast:
½ a soft avocado
2 eggs
Sprinkle of Himalayan sea salt
DIRECTIONS
Pouch 2 eggs. Slice the black pudding into thin pieces and cook on the grill,
mash when cooked. Mash the avocado. Toast the BFree loaf, top with the
mashed black pudding, then the avocado and top the mixture with a soft
poached egg and a sprinkle of salt. Serve with rocket.
Lunch:
Chicken Salad
Snack: 4 squares of dark chocolate
Dinner
BFree Pizza
Tomato puree
Hard Goats cheese
tomato,
roasted red peppers,
prosciutto ham.
Spread 1-2 teaspoons of tomato puree on a BFree wrap and add toppings of
choice. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Serve with Side Salad.
Snack: Bag of popcorn
Breakfast: (MY FAV!!!!) 
Simple delicious Paleo Pancakes
1 Medium sized Banana
2 Eggs
1 tsp of baking soda (ensure GF)
Mix 2 eggs, baking powder and chop one banana and blitz in food processor
until smooth. Fry on pan like you would any pancakes – keep them small as
they will be easy to flip. These are delicious served on their own or with a
tablespoon of honey or maple syrup / or a dollop of greek yoghurt and some
berries.
Snack: 4 GF oats cakes topped with almond butter
Lunch: Omelette (2 eggs), with 1/2 pepper,mushrooms, onion, garlic + 2
Snack: Handful of trail mix & a piece of fruit
Dinner: Medium Salmon darne cooked in parchment with a squeeze of lemon
juice + medium sweet potato ,chopped into fries and sprinkled with salt,
pepper & olive oil + cup of broccoli
Dessert: Gluten free cookie. Keep your eyes peeled for the recipe for this 🙂

CO YO hits Tescos……

 

I’m a huge fan of CO YO yogurt. I had it throughout my pregnancy and ever since. It’s dairy-free, sugar-free, Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Soya Free and is made from 99% pure coconut – I can’t wait to give it Lacie once she starts eating food, there is so much you can do with it and it’s simply delicious!
So you can imagine my delight and everyone else’s when CO YO announced yesterday that it will be stocked in 416 stores around the UK. I only tend to buy it when I’m in London, which is not very often at the moment especially as I’m on maternity leave.

LR RT CO YO1318

After some digging around I managed to get the list of stores that CO YO will be stocked in. It will be available from 16th June and online at http://www.tesco.com too! How exciting!

Here is the list of stores… I really hope there is one near you!
