Cravings?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I had my first craving today! I woke up and I NEEDED donuts. I was obsessed. I was all "where's my donuts. Let's get donuts. Donuts now." And when I got them, I almost cried I was so happy.

I'd say I'm preggers.

Dried Pineapple and Cashew Butter! I had to drive a half an hour today just to get more!!

It's all about vegetables for me. I made stir-fry last night, and HAD to have the leftovers for breakfast today. I CANNOT tolerate anything sweet (except some fruit) and BREAD isn't tasting as good as it once did. I'm a vegetarian, so my diet is a bit limited at this point!!

Otherwise, popsicles and fruit. I've been eating all of my kid's popsicles!

I did learn that usually cravings are your body telling you you need something that is in what you want. So maybe getting some protein might help with that one? Nuts and grains, lentils, and other things might help you get rid of that craving

I can't imagine how it would be to crave something I refused to eat! I'm feeling for you!

I craved Chocolate today. Mmmm mnms

I'm having cravings for very specific foods. Friday I wanted Fet Alfredo, but not just the normal real kind I could have made from the heavy cream and parmesan in my fridge, noooo.... I wanted the fake stuff from Olive Garden. Again last night I wanted chocolate cupcakes but not homemade from real ingredients or even bakery cupcakes, I wanted them made from a boxed cake mix with a tub of frosting on them.

My cravings are going to be an issue for a while here as we are carless in a city that is horrible to be carless in. No way to easily solve craving problems. Perhaps that's a good thing.

Spaghetti. I want it right now, there is some in the fridge here at work, but it is for lunch. I am a little sick, and the only think I canthink about is the containor full of elbow noodles and sauce.

I do not want veggie loaf. I used to love loaf, but it does not sound good at all right now.

The only craving I've had is for an italian sub, which I've suppressed due to the whole listeria/nitrates issue. I guess I could make my own with nitrate-free meats, and heat it all up first. How desperate am I to be suggesting something that disgusting? I can just picture myself sauteeing cold cuts.

Yeah I've heard that, too. I am trying to eat more protien and iron but I'm still craving meat :

Yesterday we took the kids to the Zoo and, as a special treat, stopped at Subway for dinner. I decided to try their veggie patty sub with mayo (i usually hate mayo) and it was soooooo good. Now I can't stop thinking about that sub. I must have another one. Oh man, I might have to send dh to subway now...

Lately I have been craving pesto sauce. The past few days I've been dipping my carrots into it and it's so good! DH looked at me like I was nuts, but I didn't think I was eating anything *that* weird!

Chicken mcnuggets with hot mustard and barbeque sauces.

I havent eaten at a mcdonalds in almost a decade but I might cave soon. Nothing else sounds good to me.

I just ate somewhere between 12 and 14 cups of popcorn. It was something about the texture, not just the salt. It looked like about 2 of those microwave bags' worth. And it was soooo good.
It could have been worse - it was airpopped, lightly sprayed with olive oil and just a wee bit of salt.

my DH knew I was pregnant when I ordered a mint chocolate blizzard at dairy queen the other night. I don't even like mint and the only other time I ate it was when I was pregnant with my son.

Beans! Beans! Beans!

I have stocked the freezer with Amy's Burritos and the cabinet with cans of beans. I day dream of mashing the beans and topping it with some cheese and then heating it til the cheese melts all yummy and gooey on the beans. Yum!
post #19 of 26
Oh, yum. Beans sound good.

Philly cheese steaks. That's what I am craving. I need to get some breakaway beef from the cash and carry. They have the best stuff. And it's open to the public now.
