Goats, Preggy Dining, Anonymouses

Looks like I might become the proud caretaker of two female goats. A friend of mine needs to find a home for her two goats and hubby said we could take them in! I've got my work cut out of me. They need to move in before Thanksgiving and that spot out back needs cleaning and the shed needs to be divided and prepped for safe and adequate goat housing.

For Bubby's pregnancy, I allowed myself the pleasure of indulgences. I "ate for two" and gave in to every craving. I knew I was going to blow up like a balloon and that I'd have to work hard to get it off, but I was ok with that because I knew I could do it and I did do it. Not only did I go down to my pre-preggy weight, I lost 7 more lbs!

For this pregnancy, I'm really trying to stay fit and healthy with healthful meals following the Nourishing Traditions diet and exercise. So far, so good because I'm not bogged down with nausea (I get little bouts now and again, but it's still early). Here's today's menu for me:

Breakfast: whey-soaked oatmeal with walnuts, fresh apple, cream and a touch of maple syrup. Water. Cod liver oil, B6 and Folic Acid.

Lunch: A pinch of Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal (my little cheat), roma tomatoes and chicken salad (chicken breast, walnuts, apple, cheese and mayo seasoned with paprika) Water

Snack: Probably a Fruitbu and homemade yogurt if I'm hungry at all, Water

Dinner: Brother is coming over, so I'm making homemade pizza with whole wheat crust. I load mine down with veggies. The men will get sausage. For dessert, I'm thinking of making an Angel Food Cake with homemade whipped cream and peaches. Water, 1/2 dose of a Prenatal Vitamin

Do to the general annoyance of some anonymous commenter(s) who insists on being ridiculous, I'm only allowing blogger registered users to post comments. I apologise to those anonymous commenters who are good and decent, but it really doesn't take much to join blogger and it's free and you don't have to start up a blog.

How did/do your angel food cake turn out? Mine never seem to rise high enough. I use 12 egg whites. Is that enough?

I cheated and used a box mix.

I'm glad to hear someone else is tempted to do that! I never knew what to do with twelve egg yolks anyway. Thanks!
