LoL! I can totally relate to this.
I'm eating a toaster waffle with butter and powdered sugar right now. yumyum carbs and fat.
Mine have mostly been very specific. I was craving gummy candies really badly for a while. I HAD to have gummy candies. I didn't even want dark chocolate (which is usually my favorite thing in the whole world), just gummy candies. The best being RealFruit gummies. YUM!
And now, meat. I am not normally much of a meat-eater, I probably cook meat once a week, sometimes twice. I just am not a protein person. But recently I want meat, of any and all descriptions, every day. I ate more than half of a beef roast yesterday. It must have weighed at least 3 pounds. I took more than usually would, and then had seconds. And it was delicious, when I usually find beef roast just barely acceptable. Today I bought a whole lot of chicken and a pork tenderloin, and I'm really looking forward to eating them. It's very out-of-character. It's usually my husband who has to cook meat when he wants it, because I just won't bother.
This focus on protein is probably a good thing, since my first glucose tolerance test came back a bit high.
Oh yeah! Make it trashy food too and you've got a winner! I had a week of chili cheese dogs (vegetarian though) culminating in cooking the hot dog, wrapping it in veggie bacon (or real if that's your thing), cooking that, then wrapping it in American cheese, popping it in a bun, covering with chili, shredded cheddar and sour cream. A veggie burger with American cheese (which was a childhood treat at my grandmother's as we never had processed cheese at home) and mayo is absolute heaven on a bun right now too.
My husband knows better than to stand in between me and a craving...and he also knows better than to dip his hand into my popcorn bowl or expect to get any ice cream when I'm pregnant
