I’d love to try this recipe that is said to be great for pregnant women, but I don’t think my husband would find it as exciting as I.

1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 lb cubed pork meat
2 tsp peanut oil, or sesame oil

1 large carrot, sliced
1 cup broccoli florets
1 (15 ounce) can sliced peaches, with juice
1 Tbs all-purpose flour

Procedure

  1. In a glass bowl or casserole dish, combine the lemon juice, soy sauce, ground ginger, and garlic powder. Place the pork into the dish, cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add the pork, marinade and onion, and cook stirring constantly until the meat is cooked through. Throw in the carrot and broccoli, and cook for a few minutes, then add the peaches with the juice, and bring the mixture to a boil.

3 Perfect Pregnancy Dinners

I get weekly updates from BabyCenter on where I am in my pregnancy. This week my update had some nutritional recipies during pregnancy, so I thought I’d share what I had found with the rest of you…

Nutrition Nibbles: 3 perfect pregnancy dinners

Wondering what to eat tonight? These dinner ideas from Nicole Britvan, a dietitian at Kaiser Permanente Outpatient Nutrition Clinic in San Francisco, have the ideal mix of nutrients and flavor for pregnant women.

• Stir Fry Make a large stir-fry with chicken, shrimp, or tofu. To make it super fast, buy bags of frozen precut veggies and heat in a skillet with low-sodium soy sauce or olive, peanut, or sesame oil. Serve over brown rice.

• Chicken Breast Bake or broil a 4- to 5-ounce chicken breast (marinate in lemon juice and oregano for extra zip). Add 1 to 2 cups of your favorite steamed veggies, and a baked sweet potato or regular potato topped with plain yogurt and salsa or low-fat cheese.

• Chicken Quesadilla Fill 1 whole-wheat tortilla with 1 to 2 ounces of reduced fat cheese and 1 to 2 ounces of chicken, shrimp, or tofu. Add salsa or chopped tomatoes, lettuce, and a few tablespoons of fat-free refried beans for extra fiber! Serve with a handful of unsalted tortilla chips.

I think some of these would be great even if I wasn’t pregnant.

Have a great dinner tonight! HIS Child

Pregnant and Needing Easy Recipes

I am at 30 weeks and even though I’ve been asked about cravings all the time, I’ve noticed that recently, nothing sounds good. I find this odd. I may be hungry, but for what? So I need your help.

I am looking for recipes that are healthy to eat during one’s pregnancy. They need to be quick so that I’m not on my feet for hours cooking and preferably something semi normal. I’ve been looking at a lot of baby/maternity/pregnancy sites and their food is… wierd. It’s full of tofu, and 500 ingredients. My husband wouldn’t touch most of it with a 10 foot pole! We are a mid-west family who likes simple meals. Can you help me in my dilemma? If so, please share your favorite recipes from pregnancy. I’d appreciate it!

Please Pray With Me!

Food becomes much more exciting when you are pregnant. This I have learned in the last 6 months. Everything smells and looks better than it did before and self-control is not really an option anymore. At work, my friday lunches are different from the rest of the week. I tend to have lunch by my self, which I actually enjoy, because it gives me time to think or work on one of my many other projects that need to get done. As I do at most meals, I bowed my head and thanked God for the meal and His many blessings. That’s when it hit me: I am so blessed to have food at my finger tips and there are many pregnant women around the world who struggle to feed themselves daily. I almost started to cry over the idea and my routine prayer time changed that day and every day since. I began praying for those mom’s who don’t have a next meal readily available. And for the fathers who are going without to make sure their wife and expectant child are fed. Talk about a heavy burden to have in one of life’s most joyful events. My heart just broke.

So, today, I ask all of you to pray for the mothers and fathers who carry this burden and deal with this stressful situation on a daily basis. Ask God to send them food to satisfy as well as the message of His love for them.

If anyone knows of a Christian based charity that helps expecting mothers with nourishment, please let me know. I’d like to check into it.

Dill Pickles… and a easy receipe to fill the craving! Will you share your recipes?

One of the many questions I’ve been asked is what types of food I have been craving since I got pregnant. To be honest, I don’t crave anything in particular.  However, if I smell it and it smells good, I want it. Or if I hear someone else talking about it and it sounds good, then were bound to eat it for dinner real soon! I was told by a nurse friend of mine that our cravings tend to be our bodies telling us we are in need of something that food has, and as long as we eat it and not overdo it, then we should be fine.

If I had to pick one food item that sounds good regularly, I would have to say dill pickles. Not by themselves, but on hamburgers, with a sandwich or on my sandwich. If they are in it, then it sounds appealing. So, here is a recipe that I use that includes pickles and it’s easy to make. It’s a homemade version of chicken salad which we use for chicken salad sandwiches!

HIS Child’s Chicken Salad Sandwiches (with dill pickles)

1 large can of white chicken breast (can be found around the tuna fish/spam isle) or you can cook and pull apart 1-2 chicken breasts

1-2 dill pickle spears chopped

1/3 of a cup of light mayo

Sprinkle garlic salt to taste (I’d guess about 1-2 tablespoons)

1 boiled egg chopped (Optional)

Shred your chicken. Mix the rest of the ingredients together. Taste as you add your garlic salt for flavor (you don’t want to over salt it). You can add a tomato slice and/or lettuce leaf to your sandwich for a little extra flavor. Enjoy! It’s an easy meal that takes seconds and makes about 4 sandwiches. Plus you can refrigerate what you don’t eat and have it the next day.

So, what did your or do you crave during your pregnancy and what recipes are you willing to share that might help others with that same craving?
