Llyra -- my kids love the snackies type thing though, so we're good here. I just had a HUGE salad a while ago -- field greens & romaine, fresh mushrooms, cheddar cheese, grape tomatoes, shredded (leftover) cold chicken, & sprouts. Mmmmmmm... Then I had a tiny bit of Amaretto. I'm in the "alcohol should be used VERY cautiously -- especially in the first trimester" camp. I think (we) Americans are kinda psycho about it, though.
Re: the processed meat -- I found some "Hormel" branded lunch meat that claims to be "natural." The ham has no nitrates/nitites in it. When I have a craving, I go that route. In Florida, the health food store had organic lunchmeat...it was awesome!
I'm thinking about boiling a dozen eggs for tomorrow (not breakfast, though!)
