I have to admit, I think it is fun to hear what pregnant women are craving, especially when it is something totally random or out of character for the person. One of my friends (who is usually very conscious about what she eats) craved White Castle her entire pregnancy. Now don't get me wrong, I freaking love sliders, but if you are a health nut, that is pretty much the WORST place you could go for lunch. I can't say that anything I am craving is out of character for me, but the desire to eat these things EVERY day has become a bit ridiculous.
First up...my breakfast of choice these days.
I have never been a big fan of sugary cereals (I like my Special K) but for some reason, I can't get enough of this damn stuff!! It is delicious :-)
Next up...salami sandwiches.
Seriously...I could eat a salami sandwich for lunch and dinner every single day if I could somehow convince myself that it is healthy. There is nothing healthy about this sandwich besides the lettuce. Hey...it's something!
Next up...Milk Shakes
Yeah, this one is pretty unoriginal. Almost every pregnant chic I know craved a milk shake at one point or another. But I am having a specific milk shake craving. It HAS to come from Oberweis dairy. YUUUUUUMMMMMM!
I am actually happy about this craving. I had it with Addie too and it made me feel good, considering all the other crap I was shoving in my mouth. I am also happy that it is summer and all the fruit is fresh and reasonably priced. In fact, I could go for an apple right now.
I really wouldn't consider this a pregnancy craving, because I eat pasta all the time anyway. But if you ask me what I want for dinner these days, I will usually respond "anything with noddles." I just can't help it...I love carbs.
Don't worry...I am not indulging in this craving. Its just that I can't stop thinking about wine!!! I think its because I can't have it. I know the doc had said it was fine to drink a small glass of red wine towards the end of pregnancy and you better believe I will be taking that advice. Just in time for the holidays :-)
Alright...I know this wasn't a super exciting post but I thought it would be fun to share some of the things I have been craving. What things do you all crave? Even if you aren't pregnant. Do you have certain foods you get a taste for and can't live without?
