Lately it's been non fat organic milk with chocolate nesquick. MMmmm! And add a wholewheat beagal with peanut butter... heaven! (Yes, beagal, my 2yo calls bagals beagals and it's stuck. :LOL)
I spotted a big bag of avacados at Costco and couldn't resist them... but I don't know how to prepare them! LOL Any tips?
What are y'all craving?
For avocadoes...you can make guacamole, avocado on your bagel or good sprouted wheat bread, in salads, etc. My 19 month old LOVES avos as he calls them!
I craved hamburgers with dd; this time I've been wanting a big steak, and lots and lots of chicken. I don't normally eat that much meat, so it's very odd.
I've also been craving Mrs. T's potato and cheddar mini pierogies. Yes, very specific!
I only wish I'd crave something like green veggies... I don't like ANY of them, and I know I need to eat them.

Avocados! I've been just dicing them up and eating them with a spoon, or to make guacamole just do this:
Scoop the meat of the avocados into a bowl. Crush a bunch of garlic into it, squeeze a lime or a lemon into it, and mash it all up. Add salt and pepper to taste and eat it on things or with a spoon.
For more variety, you can add some diced fresh tomatoes, a little cayenne, some cumin, coriander, some dices chilies....you've got me wanting to go make some right now!!
Patchfire: I've found a really great way to eat kale lately, which I normally hate. I know that a lot of good things are lost by cooking it, but eating it cooked must be better than not eating it at all! I sautee some sliced onions in a little olive oil until soft, add a bunch of crushed garlic, then throw in chopped up kale (a lot of it because it shrinks). Cook this until it is bright green, then throw in a lot of chopped fresh basil. Salt and pepper to taste, then throw it on some whole wheat pizza dough (no red sauce, maybe a little olive oil on the crust if you want), then I choose to top it with cooked hot italian sausage, but it is wonderful without, too. Then throw on a little bit of cheese (I use the mediterranean blend from Trader Joes, but mozzerella is good too). Bake, and it is SOOOOOO good!!
i like eating avocados just cut in half with some vinagrette on them. or of course as guacomole inside a la familia super veggie burrito....AAARGH!
What a great season to be PG! I went to the farmer's market on Saturday and bought so many fruits and veggies. Yum.
I will be back ther ein a few days and will probably drop another 420. But man you can;t get this good stuff any other time of year round here and most especially not in the supermarkets.
What I can't stand? Sweet or sugary foods of any kind. Blarghhhhh (I still like fruits though)

Other than that, no real specific cravings. Just FOOD! I'm hungry all the time. And WATER! I can't remember being this thirsty since I was nursing.
Someone here suggested Hot Pockets so I went to the store and bought 3 boxes (I had been hungry for 30 minutes which made me feel sick) and as soon as I got home I heated them up and ate them which still has me feeling sick! Darned if you do, darned if you don't! :LOL
The hot pockets weren't that great either, I have got to figure out something I like! Everything tastes weird or not as good.
Last night I had to have a subway sub loaded with veggies. My poor DH is going to go broke trying to feed my appetite LOL

I have also been craving fruit/berry pies and cobblers. Today I am going to pick some fresh raspberries and make a peach raspberry cobbler yummy.
Gale Force--ewwwww butter off the spoon? Its freaking hot here too and we have no a/c! I don't think I have ever drank so much water lemonade and gatorade in my life.
Oh and I tried chocolate milk (organic) and it didn't taste so great.. *sniff*
