I've had Chick Fil A twice this pregnancy and both times it was glorious! Extra pickles with a lemonade... so perfect.
Food Cravings - Page 13
dakipode, I am jealous. I hate the smell of steak more than anything. I cannot stand beef. Chicken is the only animal protein I can take and fast food chicken is my preferred form. I know I would feel better overall if I could get myself to eat more protein, but I just can't do it.
I love fruit though. Can't get enough of it! Also, root beer smells amazing, but the carbonation doesn't feel so good.
Cereal with bananas. Every darn night after DD goes to bed because its easy and filling.
I went crazy over sandwiches and my holistic doc was so mad! The nitrates are terrible for baby.
Last week it was goat cheese from the farmers market and bread. I felt like crap from the bread and am doing MUCH better now without it. Not liking pasta either! Weird!
Chocolate milk and OJ. Mmmmmm!
I'm loving kale lately. I am so lucky to have a good friend who likes food as much as I do, and with whom I can share recipes/food inspiration. She convinced me that it reallt was OK to buy kale from the store (I'd grown it in our garden the last few years) and that I was not losing my microfarm cred if I did.
So I've made a chopped kale salad and am going to make my favorite side dish, a simple sauté of kale in bacon fat with bacon crumbles on top.
I've been wanting corn dogs so I'm going to make homemade GF and nitrate corn dogs for lunch today with lots of mustard!
While pregnant with DS I was a meativore. "Carnivore" just doesn't even cover it. Burgers and steaks and chicken and pork and ribs and... oh man. It was awesome. I love meat anyways so that was right up my alley! This time around, not nearly as much. I'm still enjoying meat but it's not like it was with DS.
No. Not choc milk and OJ at the same time. Hehe. I'm really into the not from concentrate fresh squeezed stuff from Trader Joes. I just wish choc milk from the milk case wasn't 2% and didn't have careegenan in to. Yuck. I stopped buying it when I read those nasty ingredients. And it's not like Hershey's syrup is a better at all even in whole milk. I guess I could slowly cook dark chocolate in a double broiler the add to milk and chill it but its a 2 day process. I just might tho.
Great to see some GF mentions on here. Anyone have a mac and cheese recipe that's decent? Every time I make it myself it doesn't kill that cheese flavor craving I guess I must love from the boxed stuff. Haha!
It's so funny, this talk of orange juice and chocolate made me think yum! It brought me back to my childhood when my uncle would bring us chocolate oranges (among lots of other goodies) from England when he'd visit us each summer. I know the initial thought of mixing chocolate and orange is weird, but for those of you who haven't tried it, this combination is delicious! As an adult I used to love to order an orange valencia latte from Starbucks (chocolate and orange again), sadly I don't think they make them anymore...
I too have been craving hot chocolate but all of the extra crap/fillers they put in the mixes just turns me off. And, when I get that craving, lately I'm just too darn lazy to melt real chocolate and make it the traditional way.... I may try what you did nettle, that sounds like it would satisfy...
I thought about ordering that Green & Blacks organic hot chocolate mix and you just add milk... The ingredients listed are: Organic Raw Cane Sugar, Organic Fat-Reduced Cocoa Powder, Organic Dark Chocolate Powder (Organic Chocolate Liquor, Organic Raw Cane Sugar, Organic Cocoa Butter, Soy Lecithin, (Emulsifier), Organic Vanilla Extract.
Has anyone tried it and/or have others to recommend?
Me neither, well, not a REAL one anyway, made the mistake of buying a copy made in the states and they are just not the same:(
haurelia - I'll have to see if I can find that brand locally, as I'd rather buy local but can't seem to find the Green & Blacks anywhere but online...
Mmm chocolate milk sounds good. I guess I should have realized if steak makes me want to throw up then a roast beef sandwich wouldn't be a good idea :/ my dh ate it and said it was really good, so it's still just my funky mouth. I settled for a cucumber soaked in vinegar. Again.
I feel ya for sure, it's so hard not to be able to eat the things you loved pre-pregnancy... I'm not really a meat eater (specifically red meat or pork, lamb, etc..) and am not a big fan chicken or turkey either either (only started eating these again a couple of years ago and sparingly). Feeling like I'm getting enough protein has been tough! DH has ben so sweet making chicken for me all kinds of special ways and I really have to force it down! I do love fish, seafood, etc. but can't eat it every day... right? I've really been overdoing the cheese:) I LOVE cheese!! And, peanut or almond butter are staples but I read that too much peanut butter during pregnancy may cause baby to have some problems, like allergies or asthma... But, then again, my mom didn't even like peanut butter but craved it during pregnancy and ate it a lot and I'm fine:) So, who knows...
