Meal Planning Monday 2017 - Week 44

Something exciting to look forward to this week - we find out on Wednesday if mini Cowe is a boy or a girl!

I've been suffering extreme fatigue for several weeks now, always in the middle of the day. The midwife just puts it down to my blood pressure tablets (though they never made me tired pre-pregnancy) and since it always happens around lunchtime - in fact, after I've eaten - I'm looking at what I'm eating at midday and trying to switch to a low GI diet where possible. Recently as I've been so busy and quite tired in the evenings I've just been throwing a sandwich together, which I thought was OK as I was using granary bread, but I'm starting to think that's not the case and I need to spend a bit more time preparing my lunches. So here's the meal plan for this week:

Monday - working from home as I have an antenatal appointment
Breakfast yogurt with fruit
Lunch baked sweet potato with tuna and feta - make one for tomorrow as well
Dinner chicken pie and mashed potato (going to do this last week but didn't)

Breakfast yogurt with fruit
Lunch baked sweet potato with tuna and feta - make one for tomorrow as well - reheated in office microwave
Dinner  Chicken and broccoli pasta bake with wholewheat pasta

Wednesday working from home and my husband has taken a day off (lucky him) as it's our scan today
Breakfast porridge
Lunch probably pick something up on the way back from the hospital or leftover pasta bake
Dinner salmon with broccoli and sweet potato mash

Breakfast porridge
Lunch carrot and coriander soup
Dinner fishfingers/ chicken kiev and chips

Breakfast porridge
Lunch not sure yet - depends what we've got left!
Dinner quick risotto as I think I will go to yoga

Breakfast yogurt
Lunch broccoli soup for me, tomato soup for him
Dinner pan-fried hake in lemon butter sauce I was going to make last week but didn't

Breakfast yogurt
Lunch chocolate French toast based on this recipe
Dinner  sausage casserole
