Food, Bedroom, Feet

So, at the Dr. yesterday, I learned I needed to cut out sugar and high fats and fried foods and anything else you want to eat when you are pregnant. I found this at Walmart yesterday.

I used jumbo romaine leaves to serve it in and it was really yummy. Laiken even liked it. I am not one for frozen meals, I think they are usually nasty, but this was good. 80 calories per lettuce wrap. I had two with fresh pineapple. This morning for breakfast, I had whole wheat toast with an egg white and turkey bacon.

Does anyone else have any ideas for healthy family friendly meals? Or healthy things you ate when you were pregnant? If you have any recipe suggestions, send them my way!

I thought I'd do a tour of my bedroom. I have been scouting out black and yellow bedrooms on Pinterest and I really wanted to go with the mustardy yellow/black family since we have black furniture.

See my new fan? I love it. It doesn't put off much light, but I like it dark in there.

This is the dresser and my nightstand.

This is my media stand.

Maybe this is a not so dark picture?

I am still not done in there, I am looking for new nightstand lamps. I had some gorgeous ones that I sold when I sold our last bedroom suite and I am on the hunt for some new ones. And I have some black and white art to hang.

I found this sign at Wal-Mart on a clearance aisle and bought it. I think it's so perfect for our family;-) You can see it when you walk in the front door.

I also found this one I love at Gordman's.

I have an issue with Camden and it's pretty gross. If you have a weak stomach, stop reading. I used to bite my toenails when I was little. Camden has done it since he was a baby too. Over the last year or so, it has progressed into eating the skin off his feet and lately his hands. He lays in his bed with the covers over his head with his foot shoved in his mouth. He has gnawed all the skin off the bottom of his feet. He also bites all the skin off his index fingers. It's kinda embarassing, not to mention painful. I wonder if anyone knows anyone else who has ever done this? He told me he tries not to do it, but it's so hard to stop. It just kind of worries me....

Anyhow, off to cook dinner! Happy Tuesday!

Your bedroom is beautiful!
Wish I had some advice, but I don't ~ I'm sure others out there have dealt with the same thing!

Love your bedroom! That fan is fabulous! I saw that subway are at Wal-Mart and I love it. So cute! The one you got at Gordmans I haven't seen. I might have to make a trip to Gordmans. I LOOOOVE IT!!!!!!! Hope you don't mind if I copy?

As far as Camden - does he eat anything else that's not food? Like a pica kind of thing? Is he anxious or stressed about something maybe? Do you think he feels compelled to do it - like OCD or something? Not sure. Wish I could help. I'm bad about chewing on the skin around my fingernails like if I get a hangnail and stuff. Yep, I'm officially no help.

Last night we had Shrimp Quesadillas with Tomato Avacado Salsa. I'm planning on doing a post Wednesday or Thursday, but here's the link: http://www.skinnytaste.com/2010/06/shrimp-quesadillas-with-tomato-avocado.html
They were delicious!!!

I'm loving your bedroom. It's super romantic!

Let me know if you figure out anything about the skin picking. Grady has started to do it to his fingers and he's only 3! The other day (this is gross) he saw dry skin on the bottom of one of my feet and tried to pick at that too!

Love the bedroom!

Have you looked at taste of home's website? I know they have a healthy cooking section, maybe even called "healthy cooking", not sure, but I know they have one. Love me some taste of home.

I second the whole stress thing. Wonder if Camden is stressed out about something and that is why he is doing it? Or if he needs a vitamin or something? Would sleeping in socks help? Probably a dumb idea, but just a thought...

So many comments so I hope I remember them all:

1. I love PF Changs lettuce wraps and now you got me wanting them!

2. We are bed hunting and I'm pretty sure I saw your bed.

3. I have a sign like that black and white one. I got it at TJ Maxx. I'll take a picture of my wall if I ever finish it!

4. And you know I pick off my toenails too. I can also tear off the skin next to the nail. It was never any anxiety or OCD or any problems like that. Just something I've always done.

Ok I think that was all I was going to say!

Wow girl your room is so pretty! I love the colors...you go girl...you should be an interior designer! So do you have to watch what you eat for your blood pressure and sugar? I will have to look through my healhy cookbooks I used when I was preggers with Kelcee lol...hmmm I have heard of kiddos chewing there nails and skin around them and I have heard my mom say who was a nurse for 40 years that putting vinegar on their fingers will taste gross and break the habit hmmm maybe put it on his feet...it will smell gross but may help...
