Sub sandwhiches: friend or foe?
I am craving Subway so badly that I can't stand it! I have avoided it, simply because I've already gone through one miscarriage and I know that if I had another, I would blame myself with every little thing that I did wrong. HOWEVER, at my doctor's appointment Monday, my OB doctor told me to start "cutting back" on processed meats and deli meats, simply because they aren't as good for you. He plainly stated "You don't have to just quit cold turkey" (no pun intended, haha!), so it probably isn't as big of a deal as some have made it seem.
I thought they bathed most lunch meat now adays in a viral soup bath to purportedly kill the listeria.
Here is one article on the subject, I'm sure you could find a lot more.
Might make you think twice about the lunch meat for different reasons though.
I had deli meat(cold) with both my other kids, and minus my son is a little crazy, they turned out find ;) I wasn't told there was anything wrong with cold cuts with either pregnancy, it wasn't until a few months ago I was told it's not recommended. *shrug*. To be on the safe side, I might have it roasted so the meat is hot.
