That time has come. If you’re anything like me, you’ve been anxiously anticipating it. Summer.
There is so much to love about the arrival of summer. The warm sun, allowing for more time outside. (The rare time of the year we Pacific Northwesterners get enough natural vitamin D and maybe even a sun tan?) A break from wrangling children to and from school. More daylight to take advantage of.
This year, I have been anticipating the arrival of summer for quite some time. Summer means the final stretch of this pregnancy. I’m THAT much closer to a baby in my arms and not in my rib cage. Woohoo!
Pregnancy, though.. Pregnancy brings a lot of cravings. Both in food and in life. Summer also allows me to indulge in more of those cravings, too! Like fresh summer berries. My favorite way to eat those berries? Mixed into Stonyfield’s Whole Milk Greek Yogurt.. on top of granola. (My granola cravings vary from Honey Almond to Vanilla.. But the yogurt and berries always stays the same! SO GOOD!) Another summer pregnancy craving has been egg salad. I know, I know. When you swap out the mayo for Stonyfield’s Plain Whole Milk Greek yogurt?? Not only does it fulfill a craving.. but it gives a light, protein packed option that I won’t feel guilty about later! (Especially when you step on the scale!) On crackers or as a sandwich.. such a good summer staple.
What else do I crave? Besides food, I mean? Being able to enjoy the sun outside without overheating in an instant. The last week here has been in the high 80’s and 90’s and those temperatures while 33 weeks pregnant? Yuck. I was able to go outside and enjoy time with my family in the sun thanks to my Quinn dress from prAna. No, it is not maternity, but it slides nicely over the baby bump, even accentuates it in all the right places. I’ll be wearing this for the last short bit of this pregnancy, and then will continue to wear it after! It’s light. Comfortable. Cool.
What sort of summer cravings do you have? Maybe it’s a poolside barbeque with your toes in the water while you enjoy a turkey burger and homemade potato salad? A hike up to a waterfall with a chicken salad picnic lunch? A simple playdate at the park, enjoying your kids and some frozen yogurt?
