Clearly I am trying very hard not to stuff my face, however I do need something late afternoon to keep me going till supper.

Cheese toasty

What do you eat?

Afraid today it's been coffee cake blush! My DPs aunt is a baker and made me the most AMAZING coffee cake I've ever had and specially left out the walnuts as I'm allergic to them smile

noblegiraffe Fri 05-Jul-13 17:03:37

Ice cream today, it's so hot!

Chickpea1983 Fri 05-Jul-13 17:08:57

A bowl of porridge for me. Very filling, nutritious and tasty smile

Gingerandlemon Fri 05-Jul-13 17:10:47

Pretty much anything I can get my hands on.

waddles off to make a cheese toastie

purpleaura Fri 05-Jul-13 17:13:58

Digestive biscuits and milk this afternoon. Makes me feel like a kid again smile Cannot get enough milk!! If I'm feeling healthier, I go for a yogurt and one or two of those ryvita things with currants in. They're really tasty and they fill me up too.

91chloejp Fri 05-Jul-13 17:20:24

Strawberry laces my OH kindly bought me 6 packets of. I guess he was sick of me saying "I need strawberry laces" constantly.. with chicken salad and a bottle of water.. I'd rather have a subway but hey ho

NooMyx Fri 05-Jul-13 17:31:43

Walnuts and strawberries at least today. smile

Jenjen85 Fri 05-Jul-13 17:32:38

So far I've had some pineapple (trying to evict baby lol) and some strawberry jelly with fresh strawberries in yummy oh an a ice lolly too grin

TobyLerone Fri 05-Jul-13 17:32:45

Salad and chocolate biscuits

farmersdaughter Fri 05-Jul-13 17:50:27

Cake, got to love cake.

I'm only 11wks so currently eating to keep afternoon sickness at bay! grin

purpleaura Fri 05-Jul-13 18:10:23

Ooh, Toby you have made me really want a lemon curd yogurt... gets out phone to call dh...!!

4leafclover Fri 05-Jul-13 18:10:31

EeyoreIsh Fri 05-Jul-13 18:12:30


Damn that 9 week nausea. Please tell me it'll get better. Please! sobs

2Labradors Fri 05-Jul-13 18:13:05

Coco pops & milk. Not particularly healthy but I fancied something sugary/chocolatey after work

I have been a good girl and had strawberries & 2 kiwi fruits today too so my diet's not all bad.

I used to live on coco pops at uni, when I could eat what I wanted and never gained weight!

donttellalfred Fri 05-Jul-13 18:14:52

Homemade flapjacks. Did a certain amount of testing before cooking blush. But they have seeds in them. Seeds are healthy, right?

donttellalfred Fri 05-Jul-13 18:15:34

Oh my god I could murder a bowl of coco pops with really cold milk right now.

photographerlady Fri 05-Jul-13 18:40:55

Ice cream but removing the guilt with pears and nectarines

Babybump26 Fri 05-Jul-13 18:44:28

Orange Ice lolly which may have been followed by a couple foxes biscuits! blush

farmersdaughter Fri 05-Jul-13 19:40:44

Ohhh coco pops! Might pop to Tesco right now on the pre-tense of getting milk and butter grin

Lemon curd and homemade flat jacks! Yum yum yum. Need to up my game, clearly cheese on toast is looking rather Unappealing next to coco pops!

MortifiedAdams Fri 05-Jul-13 19:43:44

today I had a pain au chocolat. DD likes them too (19mo), and calls them cake.

My last pg I would have a 3pm cocacola and a snickers. IT was so so regular often other people would get it from the vending machine for me in advance, so sweet!

feedmewotsits Fri 05-Jul-13 20:08:45

Crisps, crisps and more crisps. Have been craving salty snacks since week 7. Just goes to show you don't crave what the body actually needs - just looking at veggies makes me want to hurl right now....

SeriousStuff Sat 06-Jul-13 00:15:54

Ranges from buttered toast, chocolate, grapes, strawberries, yoghurt, Ovaltine...

Futterby Sat 06-Jul-13 00:46:31

Desperate for a big bowl of carrots with houmous.

What is a lemon curd yogurt?! And where can I get some?!

notsoold Sat 06-Jul-13 13:57:25

Semi frozen watermelon

Frozen grapes

Pasta salad

AbiElizabeth Sat 06-Jul-13 16:04:27

Today i've eaten 2 oranges, a bowl of icecream, crisps and i'm considering going out in search of watermelon and cheesecake. piggywig

Lydia161290 Sat 06-Jul-13 18:59:35

A fruit salad and a big glass of water.

so boring!

Bring on the crisps!

LostMySocks Sat 06-Jul-13 20:07:27

Toast and peanut butter or sometimes a cup a soup

Fakebook Sat 06-Jul-13 22:29:39

I had two bowls of coco pops this afternoon with cold milk. Then I had a thorntons mini brownie. Yum!

Last Thursday I skipped lunch and just ate a massive sharing bag of salt and vinegar crisps. The Walkers baked ones. I felt bad afterwards, but they tasted great with freezing cold coke.

mustardtomango Sat 06-Jul-13 22:46:42

This afternoon, a crunchie, yoghurt covered apricots and a chocolate biscuit

mustardtomango Sat 06-Jul-13 22:48:15

Ps futterby, lemon curd... My god. Had a lemon curd ice cream a couple of days ago, heaven

Futterby Sat 06-Jul-13 23:03:17

Is it an English thing? Don't think I've ever seen them in Scotland sad

farmersdaughter Sun 07-Jul-13 12:38:13

You get lemon curd in Scotland!

Futterby Sun 07-Jul-13 13:13:24

I know I know, but lemon curd yogurt? Lemon curd ice cream? Desperately want some of these!

Chickpea1983 Sun 07-Jul-13 14:04:54

Futterby - the yoghurt is made by Yeo Valley. Currently on offer in Tesco (assuming you have Tesco in Scotland wink)

TobyLerone Sun 07-Jul-13 19:17:38

Sainsbury's Taste The Difference lemon curd yogurt is delicious.

purpleaura Sun 07-Jul-13 22:41:10

I second the Sainsburys recommendation. You could always just mix lemon curd into some thick, creamy natural yog. Mmm...

Futterby Sun 07-Jul-13 22:46:38

Oooh! Thanks!

AnythingNotEverything Sun 07-Jul-13 22:49:16

CHEESE! Swiftly followed by a yoghurt and some ice cream.

There's a definite calcium theme for me.

TobyLerone Sun 07-Jul-13 22:49:28

Waitrose do one too.

TwickyWoo Mon 08-Jul-13 16:37:00

I've been munching my way through a punnet of Cherries this afternoon. Absolutely delicious, but it has given me the worst indigestion sad

LouiseD29 Mon 08-Jul-13 19:20:20

Pickled onion Monster Munch - amazing!

purpleaura Mon 08-Jul-13 19:29:32

Newsflash: lemon curd yogurts are also available in Asda!!!

MeMyHusbandAndTheRoofer Tue 09-Jul-13 08:21:55

Anything I can get my hands on!! I'm 32 weeks and for the last week or so I have been ravenous - I have never known hunger like it!

Even the dog is starting to look like a tasty snack. Mmmmm hot dogs.

I have GD so am very jealous of those of you having cake (my DH is under instructions to buy fabulous cake and chocolates for when this baby arrives!)


farmersdaughter Tue 09-Jul-13 08:50:04

Toby if sales of lemon curd go up, we can blame you!

Yesterday it was Mimi Milks... Well it was hot grin

TobyLerone Tue 09-Jul-13 09:09:26


Also, eggy crumpets (all crumpets are inferior to Warburtons) with cheese on top.
