my top most delicious pregnancy concoctions

If any of you know me, you'll know I already eat some pretty strange combinations of food, regardless of being preggers or not. I will say this pregnancy my food cravings have been a LOT less severe & much more healthy than when I was preggers with L -- First Trimester I mainly craved a lot of fresh fruits & vegetables and Second & Third Trimester I developed more of a sweet tooth. I just went through my phone and found a few pics I took of some of my favorite food concoctions during the past 8 months & thought I'd share so I can free up some photo space on my phone
zucchini, roma tomatoes, evoo, salt & pepper, mozzarella cheese. Baked @ 350 for 10/15 minutes.
Homemade chutney + brie on crackers (RECIPE)
Sugar-free chocolate pudding with fresh blueberries + strawberries
 Ramen noodles - but in lieu of the high sodium flavor packet I used chicken broth and added in corn, peas, & fresh grated ginger.
Making the best salads EVER. Baby spinach leaves and/or arugula, grape tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, red onion, green pepper, corn, mushrooms, drizzled with evoo & balsamic vinegar. Optional tortilla strips, & optional blue cheese crumbles or feta in lieu of mozzarella. Been eating this for lunch almost every day with variations, so good & packed with tons of good nutrients for little one.
Whole wheat bread/toast, chive & onion cream cheese, baby cucumbers, salt & pepper, topped with scallions.

 Whole wheat bread/toast with avacado, fresh lemon, salt & pepper, tomatoes & mozzarella
 My chocolate fix: reduced fat hot chocolate mix with a splash of vanilla almond milk and a large spoon full of coconut oil, omgosh so good.
Everything Bagel chips dipped in strawberry cream cheese, a favorite second trimester snack. DON'T knock it 'til you try it!!
Kale & cauliflower garlic smashed potatoes (RECIPE)
Fresh apples & peaches roasted with cinnamon & brown sugar atop steel cut oats
