Holly Madison is expecting her second child, a baby boy this time and on her latest E! Pregnancy Blog post, she shared how she recently discovered that each pregnancy is indeed different. She figured it out because her pregnancy diet and cravings are so vastly different. During her first pregnancy, the former star of The Girls Next Door and Holly’s World on E! said she craved smoothies and healthy stuff, but for this pregnancy, she’s only interested in eating unhealthy stuff and junk food.
Here are both of her “Pregnancy Diets.” “If you can, I would follow the first one!” she pens:
Breakfast 1: Blueberry Green Smoothie: -1 cup water, -1 cup blueberries, -1 cup spinach, 1 banana
Breakfast 2: Escape to Starbucks for an Americano for my maximum daily caffeine allowance and the only thing that doesn’t make me nauseous, a.k.a. a carb, such as a slice of pumpkin bread…which we all know is basically a dessert loaf.
Lunch 1: Organic Kale Salad with oil-free vinaigrette dressing and a bowl of red pepper and tomato soup.
Lunch 2: This is where I make a secret run to a fast food joint, such as Taco Bell, In-n-Out, or the chicken-sandwich-joint-which-
shall-not-be-named. Be sure and throw away any evidence before you get back to your house. And drive home with the windows down to get rid of that fast food smell. Who needs the judgment?
Console yourself with the fact that you are taking your daily prenatal vitamin and DHA supplement. For those of you with a sweet tooth, I highly recommend Honest Company’s calcium and vitamin D gummies…they are seriously good!
Snack 1: green smoothie: -1 cup spinach, -1 cup kale, -1 cup water, -1 banana, -2 apples
Snack 2: choke down an organic green juice, preferably while holding your nose. Concentrate on keeping it down by reminding yourself how good this is for the baby.
Dinner 1: Homemade vegan lasagna
Dinner 2: order dairy-free Pinkberry from Postmates
Ha! So there you have it! We think the difference could have to do with the fact she is expecting a child of a different gender this round. Go figure!
Madison is expecting her second child with husband Pasquale Rotella. Their daughter, Rainbow Aurora Rotella, was born in 2013.
