There is a bread company here in VA that makes delicious breads but none that I can eat anymore. For 3 days I’ve been craving their famous Apple Scrapple bread. It has sweet chunks of apples with a cinnamon/ sugar topping. The bread was to amazing and I really miss being able to eat Great Harvest. I improvised and decided to keep it paleo rather than cheat. While this is in no way the apple scrapple I used to inhale, it definitely gave me my fix.
Part of my bed rest issues… I watched a lot of HGTV, Food Network, and Travel Channel. This recipe is a primal version of a recipe I saw on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. It was an all meatloaf episode. Preggo craving needed this so I did my best to make it primal. I used Applegate meats and Kerrygold cheese. I normally avoid dairy at all costs because it doesn’t settle well with my tummy but since I’ve been pregnant, I crave it and it doesn’t bother me so I have a little on occasion. Continue reading
Being pregnant has made me really want things that I didn’t used to miss. Mostly cereal, cheesesteaks, and cupcakes. I have been doing a great job curbing my sweet tooth by having a little bit of chocolate, or a lot of fruit when I get those cravings. My mom and my sister both got gestational diabetes with at least one of their pregnancies and I am doing my best to stay clear of that. I tried eating a few gluten items early on in my pregnancy, but my stomach just can’t handle it. I’ve been as Paleo as I can be and it has been wonderful. I still haven’t gotten morning sickness, headaches, or any terrible pregnancy symptoms. I’ve had a happy, healthy, and enjoyable pregnancy so far. I can feel little brownie bite moving frequently and I can’t wait for super hubby to feel the baby too. The biggest problem in my life right now is that I am dealing with A terrible foot injury that just won’t heal. Fractured foot turned into planters fasciitis, bursitis, Achilles tendinitis and a broken toe. I’ve been in physical therapy for 12 weeks and saw a podiatrist. Nothing seems to be working. Everyone says, if you weren’t pregnant we could… But my job is to rest, ice baths for my entire leg every night, elevation and stretching. It is hard when I am on my feet all day. I just want to get back to normal, cook and go on long walks. I am doing prenatal yoga and lifting weights as often as possible. Praying for some fine intervention and complete healing in the next few days! Since I have been unable to cook as often, super hubby has taken over and he is making some awesome Paleo meals for me. My blogs are few and far between but hopefully you will enjoy some of the recipes I add today during my snow day. Continue reading
