Oooh Greek yogurt. That too. I have been eating honey Greek yogurt at every chance. mmmmmm

Greek yogurt is awesome.   I've been buying strawberry...because it was on clearance and it just hits the spot.  It's one of the few things that I can eat daily and has not started to gross me out yet.

I actually heard that salty foods help quell motion sickness, so it makes sense it would help with nausea. I eat potato chips on long car rides.

My cravings and aversions have switched this week. Last week I wanted Kalamata olives and couldn't stand citrus. Today, the idea of Kalamata olives makes me want to barf, but I am enjoying lemony things. LOL. I still crave peaches in fruit cups, which feels wrong since my dog's name is Peaches. Haha.

I am craving the most unhealthy things!  I really want to eat lunchmeat - not even good stuff, I want that pressed meat that is super cheap & full of additives.  I haven't had it since I was a kid, but it sounds so good.  (I won't buy it though!)  I want anything salty - I bought dill pickle relish for the first time ever in my life & am having a really hard time not eating it out of the fridge with spoon.  I made a big batch of chex mix a few days ago & that is my go-to snack - I put lots of nuts in it!

 

I agree with everyone who can't eat sweets right now!  And I am shocked!  And a little disappointed!  I'm hoping my sweet tooth returns by Christmas so I can sample all my family's goodies.

Apples, pears, kiwi, pomegranate, peaches (unfortunately frozen is having to do for now) and I wish it were cherry season already because it sounds perfect right now. Everything else is still making me gag to get it down...

I have weird fruit issues anyway, and OMG, I can't imagine eating fruit right now. My dh was kind and bought my usual on-the-run food--pears. I think I'm going to cut them up and make a pear crisp...baked fruit is a bit more palatable (though only a *bit*). :?

My cravings are still all over the place, and it's making it really hard to eat healthily.  Most of the things I want right now are not so good.  Like I wanted Mexican food the other night, and before that I wanted fried green beans from a local restaurant.  And OMG, stuff with lunch meat sounds SO. GOOD.  Right now I'm eating peanut butter out of the jar because it's the only thing I have left at work with protein.  Sigh!

I was reading the Dugger thread and kept craving Tator Tot Casserole... so I made a grass fed, organic version (yes, even Whole Foods tat or tots!)...  haha, it was still gross!  

 

So tonight I couldn't stand to eat those leftovers, and instead had 2 huge plates of cottage cheese with lots of salt and pepper over lettuce.  Perfect!  You have to be pregnant to crave that at 8:30PM.  

 

I'm turned off of coffee for the first time in my life!  Taking about 1-2 sips of half decaf coffee a day.  

 

But still craving sweets sometimes... like the frozen chic chip cookie dough I have stashed in the freezer.

Eireann- Sounds delicious! I put salt on my avocados usually and now I want avocados. LOL.

I had avocados on my turkey burger. Yum! Also, I indulged a chocolate craving with peanutbutter and fruit-sweetened fudge on a piece of bread. MMM!

My husband gave me a piece of apple pie, warmed up, with a small scoop of ice cream and drizzled in caramel and now I can't keep my mind off of having that again.

Awww, how sweet!!! And sounds delish!

 

Baked potatoes with a little butter and sour cream is hitting the spot for me. But seeing the avocado, I might mash some of that up on it too with some fresh herbs. Yummmmmm

I'm craving peaches. Fresh, juicy, sweet peaches. And, of course, it's the middle of December. :( I canned a bunch of peaches last summer and I've eaten almost all of the jars I put away so far. It's still not hitting the craving. I think I might try buying some frozen peaches and making a cobbler or something to see if that helps at all.

I just finished all my home canned peaches too. Got some at whole foods.. and they were TERRIBLE. Organic canned peaches should be delicious, not terrible

I'm not looking forward to the day when I run out of my home canned peaches and have to buy them canned. :( I forget just how different those taste compared to my own. Maybe by then I'll be craving something that's actually in season like beets or parsnips or something.
