    Hey Familymatters, just reading through this thread and heard so much of my own situation in your post. DP is happy with our two DD but I'd love to have a little boy. I was always the one saying only 2 kids but feel going to 3 is the only way to give the boy one last shot. Just curious how your pink sway is going?

    I dont use an app - I just use an excel sheet to plan out my diet each week - to be honest, I pretty much eat the same thing each week so I just cut & paste a lot I just cook my meals in bulk & freeze & generally eat a vegetarian LE diet & my family eats the normal version (& that way my kids dont notice). That way I dont have to really think day by day about totals etc & I know that I am covered. During the week for dinner I generally eat some yoghurt & - a pumpkin & chickpea curry, fried rice, falafels, pita pizza, stuffed potatos, pasta, biyrani, soups (in winter). Lunch is usually some toast with a smear of jam & fruit & potato chips.

    50g Smiths potato chips & 250g brownes yoghurt gives me nearly my entire days worth of potassium (1400mg) which is good as the rest of the diet is so low. I found finding enough potassium in the early days the hardest. Fruit is usually around 200-300mg a piece so that helps too. Pumpkin & zucchini is extremely high in potassium so I add that to lots of things. Finely grated peeled zucchini goes into my fried rice & biyrani & even my family dont notice its in there. These days I generally aim for 2000mg potassium & then I know I will probably be over that because not everything lists it.

    I cant say that I am bored with the diet but I do miss snacking & breakfast - more out of habit than hunger though. I hope that helps!
