Any vegetarian ideas for me??? Something that I can prepare at home? I can't be running out to fast food restaurants everyday for the next few months. Sigh...
This is hilarious to me because I was the same way. Only I've never had fish sticks in my life! I was seriously drooling when I drove by an Ivar's and I had no idea what was going on with me. I even went so far as to purchase some fish n chips and then took a bite and gagged. Oh lordy being pregnant can be entertaining. I went to Whole Foods and went up to the deli and was like Oh hey, I've never had fish before but I'm suddenly craving it and I want it good n fried. Can you recommend something that a person who may not like fish might enjoy? He gave me some samples of different things and they were all gross!?!
I bought a bunch of kelp and dulse to put in soups and started snacking on nori strips and adding furikake sprinkles to my food and the craving went away. The fried craving was there too. I ate a lot of tempura dipped into my own homemade dipping sauce with mirin and tamari and rice vinegar and tons of seaweed flakes! And then I had this weird thing I had to eat almost daily where I mixed rice with vegenaise and capers and some furikake and nutritional yeast ohhhhh mmmmmmmm gooooood. I also started sending my partner out to get me buckwheat soba a couple of times a week. I am not Japanese.
