Ramping up the calories

I have always been a person who can eat a lot, and often. Being pregnant has really taken that to a whole new level though, and it's difficult for me to bring enough snacks to work so that I'm not starving all day long. Here's what I had so far today:

large glass of range juice
large bowl of cereal with soymilk
vitamins (not food, but counts toward nutrients)
hot tea with agave nectar (thanks to frieswiththatshake)
luna bar (lemon zest)
large can of lentil soup
hard boiled egg
ginger ale
empty peanut-butter jar of natural cheetos (my effort to use fewer baggies)
sunflower seeds
several glasses of water

It's only 4:30. It's like I need to be at an all-u-can-eat buffet, but all day long. Look out chocolate pudding, I'm after you! And, I can't wait until Thanksgiving. That's going to be great.

I guess I need to pack snacks the night before, so I'm fully prepped for my workday. Especially on days when I don't have meetings (like tomorrow) I think more about eating, so I need to plan ahead.

You're not eating any cookies. You need to fill this kid up with sugar and spice and everything nice and even if it's unrefined raw magical whole grain sugar, you still owe it to her. Cookies!!!

That's a great point. I brought a cookie to work today, so that's a start.

That sounds kinda like what I eat everyday. And I'm not pregnant.
