Hungry, dear

You all know the very hungry caterpillar, of course. I had no idea it was so realistic. Practically a biography for pregnant women. Well almost, because today, on Sunday, I was supposed to eat nothing but a green leaf and make myself a cocoon to become a beautiful butterfly.

But not pregnant-me. On Sunday, she ate through:

1 bowl of vanilla yoghurt with müsli
1 banana
1/2 crisp bread
3 1/2 breakfast pancakes with blueberries and jam
1 glass of orange juice
1 cup of tea
1 latte
1 bowl of fruit, honey and yoghurt
1/2 avocado with olive oil and vinegar
1 huge serving of salmon, potatoes, sugarsnaps, asparagus and sour cream sauce
1 pile of blueberries with ice cream
1 pile of strawberries with cream
3 large glasses of organic apple juice

The first two, I got out of bed in the middle of the night to devour. And it's only nine pm. And d'you know, there's still chocolate in the fridge.

I'm thinking the beautiful butterfly is quite a ways off.

I think YOU are the beautiful butterfly. I also adore that you refer to the quantities of the berries as "piles."

I am haunted by the notion that I left Norway without eating a single summer strawberry. We already have plans to rectify that oversight sometime in the next couple of summers.

Something must be wrong with me, because I don't think that was very much. Ok, the list is long, but drinks and berries don't give you many bingepoints, my dear.

And who eats 1/2 crisp bread? How did that happen?

I need to fatten you up with some cinnamon rolls. Just you wait.

Cinnamon rolls?! Where?

The crisp bread was to prepare my tummy for the shock of American pancakes with cream cheese. Didn't help, really.

And you know, this was a good day, with access to lots of fruit. Piles, in fact, courtesy of my mother in law. If you knew her Heidi, you'd understand. Sometimes there's white bread, butter, creamy pasta and cake instead. Which deters the caterpillar not at all.

I agree with Lin completely. The list is not that long! And with all that fruit and juice, come on, you're an aposlte of healthy living.
(I myself ate, horror, potato chips for lunch today, and it was not a good feeling afterwards.)
But by all means, endulge in creams and ice and coffee now, because when baby boy arrives, he may not let you do that for a while.

I would have to agree with Line, that's not much at all. If you are the hungry caterpillar, than what am I? The very hungry caterpillar??
