My shake has been a LIFE SAVER this entire pregnancy. When I was nauseous in first trimester – this was 1 healthy meal i could always stomach. It also keeps me from having to take prenatal vitamins and helps a lot with the tummy troubles I have during pregnancy (aka constipation lol). However – I’m no doctor so please do like I do and consult with your OB or midwife before starting any supplements while pregnant.
I’m usually a plain shake girl. In fact most days you can catch me shaking up a chocolate shake in some almond milk or a strawberry shake in water and orange juice. But on those days I have time and want a treat – these are my top 3 recipes 😋.

Guys, I struggle with emotional cravings. I want the foods I ate at highs in my life to make me feel that good of them. One of them for sure is junk chinese food. Not the real kind. The Americanized sugary fatty mess.
Usually I head out and grab some but I decided this time, I shouldn’t. Because I’d had Panda Express like 5 days ago. And it’s time to quit acting like my meal plan doesn’t matter. LOL.
So I made this up spur of the moment and it was LIT so I thought I’d share.
- chicken breast
- whole grain rice
- bread crumbs
- soy sauce
- sweet n sour sauce
- honey sesame sauce
- olive oil
I knew I wanted the chicken to be breaded. I’m ok with breading as an occasional ‘healthy cheat’ and I count it towards my yellow containers (80 day obsession meal plan). But what I don’t have a lot of space for in my diet is fat. So I wasn’t going to fry it.
I took the chicken and seasoned it (heavy, like I was always taught LOL) and then dipped it in sweet n sour sauce and honey sesame sauce. Once it was all coated I put it in a ziplock bag with breadcrumbs and additional seasoning and shook it up.
I ‘fried’ in like a few drops of olive oil.
Here’s a visual of everything I used for the chicken.
I also added some pineapples because they’re lit.
While all this was going on I had my rice in a rice cooker. It’s so worth it to have one.
I flipped each piece over to get it all evenly cooked. Once it was all done I served it on the rice and had a side of edamame. Oh, I added a little soy sauce to the rice and some sweet and sour sauce over the chicken.
Yum :). Because of all the sauces, I counted this meal as a 2x yellow, 1x blue, red, purple, and tsp.
A quick pictorial. Prep time – less than 15 mins.
To make it vegan: take out the ground turkey and replace with more beans, peppers and some quinoa (if you’re lazy like me – you can buy this steamable).
- crushed tomatoes
- ground turkey
- bell peppers
- frozen corn
- chili beans
