Full Week of Clean Eating: 24 Weeks Pregnant

Last week I recorded everything I ate Monday – Saturday to put in a blog post! I frequently post what I’m eating on Snapchat, but I wanted to give everyone a better idea of my diet by posting a full 6 days. I hope this gives you ideas you can incorporate into your own diets.

* Disclaimer: While this is helpful information that you can use to structure your own habits, this specific post should not be used as an exact meal plan for weight loss. I am 25 weeks pregnant and my nutritional needs are different than anyone else’s, especially a woman who is not pregnant and attempting to lose weight (as my body is currently doing the opposite). Even if you are pregnant, you probably need additional or fewer calories, as no one is the same. You may certainly copy and use this, just keep these things in mind. And although my intake may not be nutritionally ideal for you, it’s a good place to start if you are currently consuming a very unhealthy and high-calorie diet. Just remember to listen to your body.

Notes: I got a tummy bug that day, so that’s why I just stuck with toast for a couple of meals in a row. My stomach was feeling better but I had absolutely no energy and went to bed early, so Annie’s Mac to the rescue! I smashed up a leftover turkey burger and mixed the mac, green beans, and ground turkey together. It was super yummy.

  • Breakfast: Breakfast Burrito: scrambled eggs, 1 C spinach, black olives, 3 tbs shredded cheese, and salsa in a whole grain flatout
  • Snack: grapes, 1 slice cheese cut in triangles, 1 serving Mary’s Gone crackers
  • Lunch: 1 slice whole wheat toast + 1 tbs peanut butter
  • Snack: 1 slice toast + 1 tbs peanut butter + 1 scoop whey protein
  • Dinner: 1 C prepared Annie’s Macaroni and Cheese (made with Greek yogurt instead of butter and milk), 1 C green beans + 1 turkey burger

We went to Sioux Falls this night, so I needed a meal on the go. I ate more of an actual “dinner” at home for my late afternoon snack, and threw a protein bar in my purse for my actual “dinner” meal. When we got home at 11:30, I was starving hungry and knew I needed more to eat before I went to sleep, so I had a quick bowl of my granola as cereal.

  • Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs, shredded cheese, 1 slice bacon, Kodiak Cakes Powercakes pancakes, 1 tsp maple syrup, grapes
  • Snack: 1 peach, 1/2 C homemade granola, 3/4 C Greek yogurt
  • Lunch: 1 C prepared Annie’s Macaroni and Cheese (made with Greek yogurt instead of butter and milk), 2 C spinach sauteed in 1.5 tsp olive oil, 1 serving tuna
  • Snack: Chicken Fajita: chicken breast and peppers cooked with olive oil and seasonings, eaten on a Flatout whole grain tortilla with shredded cheese, black olives, and Greek yogurt
  • Dinner: Kirkland protein bar
  • Snack: 1/2 C homemade granola + milk

^My bomb clean eating nachos!

I loved doing this post, and it’s so easy for me to jot down what I eat. I am definitely going to do some more of these posts in the future! Questions are always welcome, as are suggestions for topics you would like to see posts on. Stay fit my friends!
