DDC Crashing

I'm not vegetarian, but I found your post SO interesting! It really is amazing how our bodies let us know what we need.

I'm curious....if you hadn't eaten meat since you were 9, how did you know you wanted an arby's sandwich?

I think it's great that you honored your body's needs without resisting due to your vegetarianism. And how awesome that you felt so much better afterwards so it was not all for nothing!

ETA: When I was pg with #1 I craved red meat like crazy. I was normally more of a chicken eater and really didn't care much about meat. But I couldn't get enough steak when pg!

Grace: I actually wrote about this very same thing on my blog. The only thing I can say is that I've never been to Fiji, but I know that I want to go there! I guess it was the same thing with eating an Arby's sandwich. Also, my mother is mostly vegetarian except for the fact that, oddly enough, she'll eat roast beef from time to time because it is so lean, so that could be an explanation as well. The first time I've ever eaten an Arby's roast beef sandwich in my life was last Saturday. Oh, and this is really funny--try googling "pregnancy cravings Arby's." There are a lot of pregnant ladies out there craving the very same thing! In fact, there is an old thread on MDC that discusses this very thing!

I'm glad you crashed.

Arby's and Fiji....now there's a combo!


Enjoy your pregnancy and your beef!

I'm an unabashed meat eater, but I've gone mostly veggie in the last two weeks. I hit a point where greasy, fried food was out and now just meat in general doesn't interest me. Except for poultry cold cuts and the occasional fish. If its a sandwich or a cobb salad I'm in. Otherwise don't put that dead carcass near me.

Nightrythm: My whole family eats meat, and all the carnivores claim they couldn't touch it much during pregnancy. I wonder why that is?

I just went out to dinner with my husband, and I started whining because I really REALLY wanted a salad, but they just tear my stomach up. It would be better to eat a bland meat sandwich so I'm not miserable for the rest of the night.

This baby is already quite defiant. We imagine that he/she will be just the opposite of his/her liberal/vegetarian/semi-crunchy parents. I suppose the red meat is an early indication of what we have in store.

I wonder if it has something to do with our bodies craving the things we normally don't get a lot of? People who tend to be on the more-meat end of the spectrum want more veggies and less meat, while people on the more-veggie end of the spectrum want fewer veggies and more meat.

I'm a pretty balanced omnivore, tending more towards the veggie end, so I guess it makes sense that I would move a little more towards the "meat" end.
