I'm not craving anything too junky but every time I see something yummy at the cafeteria I have to go home and make a giant portion of it...cole slaw, shortbread, corn chowder. I'm trying right now to convince myself that I do not need to make cookies which I know I will eat every one of in 2 days.

In the AM, all I'm interested in is homemade smoothies. Nothing else sounds good, today I had two.

Normally I eat all homemade, all organic, Nothing processed but dd and I went to visit my mom and she had pizza, cheesy jalapeno bread and ice cream and I allowed myself to enjoy all the horrible processed goodness. And I felt so lethargic after that I skipped my run. All this talk of MD's... can today get worse. I'm going to chock today up as a failure and start again tomorrow. smile.gif

Honestly I think I'm hungry for food, but I don't want anything we have in the house and I really don't want to cook. If we could just eat out every night based on what *i* feel like at that moment... Yeah that would be ideal.

Going to a grocery store or cooking, neither is very appealing to me right now. DH and I went to a pub on Sat and OMG the food! I hadn't been there before but I had heard they had the best food in town. They do! And so much could be done GF! Incredible! I want to go back now. But kids aren't allowed in pubs here so I'd either have to pay a babysitter or ask MIL to and neither sounds like good options at the moment lol

I've been cooking here and there but basically going to the store every day and getting stuff for dinner based on what I feel like at that moment.

Ummm..I just inhaled a half bag of very salty pretzels and had to tear myself away from them. Yikes.

I had sonic. Double meat, double cheese, mustard, and all the veggies. And tots. I regret nothing.

oh how I have wanted egg rolls and I truely live in a very rural community, but I wouldn't bother going to the chinease american place.  I have learned long ago to save my $ and make my own food, as I can just do a ton better.  Today, I feel I truely achieved something here.  I made chicken egg rolls (with the wrappers made from scratch) and sweet and sour sauce and man oh man, did it hit the spot!!!

I was starving for lunch and absolutely nothing sounded good... till I saw DH eating bread and salami.  Mind you, I am strictly gluten- and dairy-free in my non-pregnant life... Hell, I just quit 5 years of strict veganism (after another 7 years of strict vegetarianism) a few short months ago.  Gluten makes me feel like crap but a salami sandwich was suddenly the only thing I could fathom eating.  So I just gorged myself on bread and mustard and salami and now, of course, my stomach hurts. But seriously it was ALL I could eat.

MrsKatie I'm celiac so I can't even think of "cheating"... Eating a mouthful will put me in bed for three weeks straight or more! But allllllll I want is gluten. I am literally not hungry. But gluten crackers or bread sounds incredible! I'm sorry your stomach hurts, but I totally understand!

I also want all the gluten and cannot cheat at all. My previous pregnancy was all about crackers, tortillas, sour dough, bagels. ohhhh, this is torture. But gf pancakes with fried eggs is pretty good... In a pinch...

I can't eat corn when I'm not pregnant. It makes my gut feel inflamed and makes my hands ache with a deep, wrenching pain that lets me know what rheumatoid arthritis must feel like when left untreated. When I'm pregnant, I can eat corn flakes rolled in grounds corn stuffed in corn nuggets baked into cornbread and deep fried in corn oil and it doesn't bother me. Just makes me want corn on the cob, grilled, with lots of butter and salt.

I've been craving jojos/oven fries and I finally got around to making some tonight. Sooo good, with stoneground mustard. One happy mama here!

I am still inhaling fruit, but other than that, I've moved into a place of feeling rather "meh" about foods that even moments before taking a bite, I was obsessed with! This is a huge change for me--I consider myself a lifelong foodie--but it has been good to listen so keenly (as if I could help it!) to my body's wants and needs.

I thought I was getting over the junk food cravings this week. I went crazy over boiled zucchini one day, red pepper strips the next, and oranges yesterday. Okay, there may have been a fried rice incident in there. Today, though, all I wanted was honey glazed doughnuts. They were perfect. Why do these weird craving foods really seem to make me feel better???

I have no idea but I agree!! It feels so good to have that "need" craving met!! I need some bitter/sweet/tangy lemon bars! And a huge burger and carrot cake. 😋 I had maybe one or 2 cravings during my other pregnancies but that's all this one has been!!

Bacon. That's all I can handle right now. If I'm nauseated from not eating (like first thing in the morning) bacon and hashbrowns. Anything else and it only makes it worse

 

We just figured out my daughter has a dairy allergy so there goes cheese, chocolate milk (which I drank during my 1st pregnancy when I couldn't eat much but needed nutrients), yogurt, cream cheese, hot pockets (another thing I could generally eat well). It's a sad world without cheese!

 

Hoping to wean soon though so I should get my dairy fix back before the end of my pregnancy lol

 

I really want some sushi rolls. Or grilled shrimp. This beef stroganoff recipe I was going to try. And this rueben dip I was going to try. But can't have those last two because of nursing my daughter. BOOOO. I might send her to my moms for a few days so I can pig out for a day and get my system clean lol

Oh ladies, I know this is evil food but I just made this nom-nom paleo truffles and OMG.  So easy and so tastey.  Hardest thing was to wait for the mixture to harden.  http://nomnompaleo.com/post/14764008847/nom-nom-chocolate-truffles

were you the mama that was asking about some stool/rash issues and decided to eliminate dairy- sorry I can't remember.  Are her symptoms improved?

Yep, on the chat thread and yep. Coincidentally she hadn't had much, if any, dairy for about two days and then she went out with my MIL, she accidently gave her mac & cheese and she came back with big soft stools for about 12 hours and her belly was pretty bloated that night. None for the last two days or so and they're back to normal. We'll keep her dairy free for a week or two and then give her some milk to confirm

that's great that it's so clear for her, and that she's experiencing relief!  It does stink to eliminate dairy, especially in the beginning, but there are lots of dairy free products to try.  My girls do coconut milk yogurt and drink almond milk.  They are also at the point where they do well on goat milk products.  They didn't always, but now that they're older, they are fine with them.  There are lots of good goat milk cheeses.  You might want to try goat products at some point, but I'd keep away from any dairy while you're sorting it all out.
