I finally prepared a meal that did not upset my tummy. I am 12 weeks pregnant and have been really nauseous and sick to my tummy. The past 2 days have been filled with emptying the tummy and going to sleep with just fluids. Not good, I know.
When I woke up this morning I felt queasy and immediately stuffed 1/2 a banana in my mouth before getting ready to drop Ryan off at school. The banana definitely helped for a bit but then I had a bagel and later had an egg. Blech….my stomach rejected these foods today even though I had been enjoying them the last few weeks.
After a choir rehearsal, I decided I would try a green monster smoothie. I knew I needed greens and protein so I packed in coconut milk, water, spinach, blueberries, protein powder, flaxseed oil and blended away. My tummy was soothed! Yay!
The key then was to know what to make for dinner. When I quickly went grocery shopping in the morning I saw items to make veggie egg rolls. As the morning went by I was not feeling that anymore but I was still debating it because then I ran across a post at Clean Green Simple’s website talking about portabella burgers! I have become so indecisive lately especially since I have been really nauseous, so menu planning has been so hard!
Thank you Facebook fans for helping me make up my mind for tonight’s dinner. It was perfect and it settled really nicely in my tummy. Sigh…
I made some crunchy baked onion rings for the FIRST time! I am so sad I just tried making them because I could have been making them all this time. Nevermind that. Now I can make them often. It was a quick and savory recipe thanks to Isa Chandra’s recipe.
I also made a Russian sauce to add to the sandwich that kind of reminded me of a Thousand Island dressing. Since I did not add too much spice on the portabella cap, I decided to make a sauce. Ryan thought it was flavorful and interesting. I am glad I have leftovers because I have 2 more mushroom caps left!
Enjoy this quick dinner!
