What is your typical breakfast and lunch??

  1. Hi everyone!

    So I am a creature of habit and that applies to my diet too. I would love to know what healthy breakfasts and lunches you all eat. Dinner changes daily, but I'd love to have a regular schedule for the other two meals. And easy-to-bring-to-work snack ideas would be great too!!

    hi jeannie.
    I always have porridge for breakfast made by the chef at my work...i pinch a bowl when his back is turned...hehe
    and usually have a sandwich for lunch
    you could put some cereal or alpen in a lunchbox and just add the milk at work.

    ohhh its nearly sunday....we know what that means...8 weeks preggo!

    Well...

    I take a tub of cereal to work and add the milk there. In my lunch bag I have a load of fruit as I am craving these alot (apple, banana, plums, oranges, nectarines) and also a pot noodle as I love them alot right now which is strange but am sure they arent good for you but its my back up for when I am feeling a bit rubbish.

    For lunch its a sandwich or I take a flask of soup or in summery times a salad. Crisps and a yoghurt.

    Every morning for breakfast, I eat toast with peanut butter and jelly. I just started craving that every day with this pregnancy. I drink water with it. I used to drink tea in the morning but have developed an aversion to tea. Usually for lunch I have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or beef stew... Although I just had the last of the beef stew so I will make something new for next week. You can cut up veggies to take to work too. Saltines are a daily staple too. I keep those for the afternoon to evening nausea that always strikes.

    I normally have cereal for breakfast, normally weetabix or porridge? sometimes i have banana on toast or maybe boiled egg with toast. Lunch is either, soup and a roll, beans on toast, sardnines on toast, sometimes I have left over pasta from tea. Snack on friut, nuts throughot the day
     
  7. I thought peanut butter was a no-no because of the possibility of nut allergies??? Keep in mind, I am a worrier...and restrict what I eat/drink greatly based on what I find out.
     
  8. boiled egg with toast. soup and a roll. I think I just found my staples!!!

    OMG, I didn't know that!!! I feel so stupid!!! I have been craving peanut butter like crazy too. I just found this online:

    Although there is not yet an extensive amount of research on fetal sensitization, there have been suggestions that a fetus may be exposed to peanut allergens if a woman consumes peanut products while pregnant, so that an infant with predisposition to allergy may develop a peanut allergy.

    I DO have many food allergies and my daughter does as well, although peanuts are fine for both my daughter and I. Yikes!!! So do you all think I should avoid peanut butter then???

    Since I got pregnant I have craved cornflakes every morning with ice cold milk.

    Snack mid-morning is usually sliced peaches with yoghurt.

    Lunch I will have a wrap with marinated peppers,feta and lots of crunchy lettuce or a bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese.

    Or a hot tuna melt or mozzarella and pesto melt :)

    I still eat peanut butter. A few times a week. There is no cause for concern by my doctor because there are no known peanut allergies in my family. None of my girls have it and I crave peanut butter bad when I am pregnant. At least once in my pregnancy I go like a full 1-2 weeks of peanut butter on toast with raspberry jam. Then I slow down some and end up like I do now. Eat it a few times a week. Probably less. Then I go to nothing



    Breaky: normally cereal
    Lunch: toast with something on it.. Depends on how I feel.

    I snack around eating yogurts and I try to eat as much fruit as I can.
