Third Trimester Eats: Dining Out


Man, just looking at that picture above gives me heart burn, yet it was delicious.  Right now, everything gives me heart burn, or I get nauseated 3 hours after I eat.  Yay pregnancy.

So, I recently shared what I've been making at home, but I thought I would give you guys a snapshot of what I order when eating out lately.  It changes constantly, but I've been trying to cram in as many veggies as I can while dining out.




Awhile back, we had an office lunch at Trio's, and I was starving.  This was a few weeks ago when I actually had an appetite.  It seems to have disappeared lately.  I think she's taking up so much room now (33 weeks, people!) that it's hard to eat too much.  This lunch was great, though. Their tomato/dill soup was yummy, and the egg salad sandwich was great.  I really hadn't had egg salad in about a decade, but it was protein packed and good for baby.  I couldn't resist this piece of chocolate peanut butter pie.  I've actually been thinking about this pie a lot lately, and I may need to venture back for another taste.  That's one thing that's new to me: the raging sweet tooth.  Hopefully this girl comes out wanting more than chocolate.


I probably find myself at Whole Foods grabbing lunch at least a few times a month, and I usually pile it high with veggies and tofu.  They almost always have a nacho bar now, which is super tempting.  I try to add a bunch of broccoli to balance it out.


Most days, I crave a huge salad, like this one from Izzy's.  It's so hot here, so anything fresh and light usually hits the spot.


Izzy's also has a really tasty veggie burger that you can get with a side salad, which is what I did here.  It's not vegan (eggs), but it's filled with corn and beans, and it comes with lots of toppings.  You can get it on a bun, too, but I like it with a salad.


Josh and I indulged a few weeks ago at Big Orange, where I got this heart burn inducing mushroom melt (with veggie patty) burger.  It was SO good.  I only ate half of it, but it was still amazing.



I had this fairly lackluster lunch at The Main Cheese recently.  It was tomato soup, which was kind of gritty, and their veggie sandwich, which was ok, but the sandwich and the fries were cold.  The service was really bad, and they were empty.  I'm not sure how long this place will last.


So, not a restaurant, but I've been killing some lemonade in this heat.  It's so good.  I have a little bit, and it definitely makes the baby dance.


Of course, my obsession with tomatoes and mozzarella hasn't stopped, so I enjoyed this simple pizza at US Pizza on a date night with Josh recently.  It made a good lunch the next day, too.


Random happy pregnancy selfie!  Things have been going pretty well as we get closer and closer to the due date.  I have a checkup on Wednesday, so I'll share an update later this week.  I've also been working on a ton of art that I'd like to share as well.  The nursery is still a disaster, but more on that later.  Hope you're having some tasty eats!

What's the best restaurant meal you've had lately?

  2. Oooh US Pizza! I wanna go there again and get that avocado situation that we got last time. I'd forgotten about that! Also, that Izzy's salad looks good. I've only ever had their tamales. Will have to go there next time I'm in town!

    1. Oh yeah, getting guac instead of cheese at US Pizza is the best. Their guac is great. Izzy's salads are awesome. They have an entire vegan menu, so definitely ask for it the next time you're in town.
