wheat thins work for me. If I'm feeling good, I eat them with cream cheese. PBJs make me feel ill all the time.

But doesn't it feel great to have at least one good food?!

Oh, I'm so glad you guys have found something. It gives me hope. I just haven't discovered what mine is yet. I thought grapes would be it - I even tried eating them when I wake up in the middle of night (often!!) and before getting out of bed in the morning. Hmmm. . . not terrible, but not the solution.

I'll keep reading to see if something sounds good! :LOL

I have a few, but they aren't all the time. Just one of the things that might sound good when nothing else does. Peanut butter and cheese sandwich (this isn't a weird pregnancy thing, ive been eating them my whole life), actual homemade vanilla pudding, cheese toast, plain whole grain belgian waffles, hashbrowns/tater tots, Chick-fil-A lemonade and most items from the Chick-fil-A menu. I'm not a big supporter of Chick-fil-A, but as long as I am keeping their nuggets down I'll toss my money at them.

What kind of cheese do you put on your PB & cheese???
post #8 of 22
Usually cheddar. I like to buy hoop cheddar cheese. It's a little more work (with the wax and the cloth), but something about it just tastes so good. People see me eating them away from home sometimes and comment on how nasty it is. I always point out that all of those cracker companies make peanut butter on cheese crackers. The crackers are nasty, but this sandwich is good. I prefer it to PBJ. Sometimes, if I am in a strange mood I do PB and cream cheese.

My secret weapon last time was mango sorbet. This time I haven't gotten sick, but I must have an apple when I'm super hungry before I eat anything else! Fruit always feels good to me.

A PB&J would have made me want to spew last time I think.

LOL! Fresh popcorn (not microwave) with real butter and RealSalt. Also Bear Mush (aka Cream of Wheat) made with milk instead of water... add a pat of butter and a sprinkle of brown sugar.

Have you guys tried the Edy's frozen fruit bars? Mmmm... I think I'll have one right now...

Oh yeah, PB is sooooo good. I also am liking stuff on top of those whole grain Wasa crisps. Stuff like thin slices of honey ham, strawberry jelly, and of course, the PB.

Popsicles here! Real fruit no sugar added popsicles. DS is in heaven because it isn't fair for me to have one and not share.
Other than that it's peanut butter, banana and sprout sandwiches.

----Throkmorton : Other than that it's peanut butter, banana and sprout sandwiches. ----

Is that all on one sandwich? I hope so, because I read it and thought... "tasty"... This baby inside me is a nasty little freak. I won't be surprised if it comes out eating out of the trashcan. I crave the most off-the-wall and unhealthy crap. Hot Tamales candy, CORN DOGS (I don't even eat hot dogs, what is that about), chicken fingers and honey mustard.... Nothing green, nothing healthy and nothing that I would have eaten regularly 6 weeks ago. I'm letting it go for a few more weeks until the nausea passes, then it's back to the organic and the fresh. Even if I have to force myself.

Yep, one sandwich. The sprouts give it a nice crunch. Just peanut butter and bananas is too mushy for my tastes.

All I want is poached eggs on toast. And I HATE EGGS!

I'm so glad to hear you say that! I'm normally a very adventurous eater but my diet has shrunk to cereal w/milk and blueberries, green curry w/duck, cheddar bunnies, and miso soup. That's about it. Nothing sweet, nothing green, just about nothing other than those four things. Occasional exceptions for other food in spicy sauces.

Oooooohhh, I pigged out on cheesy puffs the other day. Our grocery store carries the Doritos Naturals, but not the Cheetos Naturals and I was just dying for a disgusting and unhealthy pig-out on cheese puffs. : Now I feel bad cause they don't have "MSG" but they have another ingredient that is code for MSG.

I haven't been so consistent with what I can eat. It's made it very difficult for me to stock anything.
But dh decided that he wouldn't *let* me indulge in a *craving* unless I could prove that it was healthy or necessary in some way. :LOL He's not controlling, don't get the wrong idea, but it's nice to have support in my times of weakness!
Example: we try to eat veggies - we eat 'em raw with ranch dressing. So recently we changed to hummus instead of ranch to reduce his calorie intake. But I've been sneaking ranch 'cause the brand of hummus we got recently makes me ill to even smell it! So he "caught" me, I didn't try to really hide it, and told him that right now, if it sounds good to me, I'm indulging - no matter what he says! :LOL
