Cold soba noodles are the bestest though!
But for some reason the warm salty ramen noodles hit the spot while pregnant.

I've eaten quite a few of those in the last few days, only after I smother with cream cheese, I smother with garlic. Don't ask! Never even occured to me before and I know my breath is terrible!

I have had such a craving for ramen too! I like to put on a spicy oriental sauce with stir fry veggies. The veggies always make me feel better about it.

(Just called DH at the store to add to the list of "stuff" I'm craving) He must hate this phase. Every night is a new craving and only that sounds good. It eases off by the 2nd tri.

Ugh, first signs of nausea tonight. I never have nausea so it's hitting me hard. It's not actually bad at all, I'm just a major wuss.

I had my usual awesome breakfast (oatmeal, 2 pc toast w/jam & nut butter, glass o'milk, fruit), but then I skipped my lunch entirely. I'm so bad at working through lunch. Then at our staff meeting I mowed on chocolate snacks and rainbow Goldfish. Ugh! And for dinner, spaghetti w/homemade sauce, salad, whole wheat bread. Not bad.

Tomorrow I'll do better on lunch.

yesterday i could not stop eating! i'm way hungrier than i remember being with dd!!! (my mom keeps saying "maybe it's twins" NOOO!) i ate everthing i could get my hands on. i was especially into raw onions. i usually like them on a veggie burger, but yesterday i had to have huge hunks of it on my veggie burger. (when we eat at MIL's that usually what they have for me. they're pretty meat-and-potatoes.) on our way home i told dh i was starving, and he said, "but you never stopped eating!" we both started cracking up! i told him i'd rather be starving than feeling sick! i think he finds it funny because i'm pretty petite, so to see me puttin' it down like a linebacker is pretty funny. i wish thanksgiving was today. i'm soooo hungry!

I also seem to be hooked on the ramen this time around. I hardly ever eat it non-pregnant but I'm finding myself craving it so much lately.

Good ideas for adding veggies, and other good stuff. I used to add baby bok choy when I was in university and ate a lot of ramen ... it made me feel a little less guilty. I also used to add sesame oil and rice vinegar instead of the seasoning packet. Yum yum! Can't wait for lunch!!

I found recently at Whole Foods some plain ramen type noodles. They are better than the packets, because they don't have hydrogenated oils.

I have been eating A LOT more than I am used to. Probably double.

So far today I have had toasted challah bread with homemade strawberry jam and butter, spinach salad with onions, bacon, grilled chicken and balsalmic vinegarette, and a whole lot of french bread and dipping oils. Oh and LOTS and LOTS of water. I can't believe how thirsty I am.

I'm joining so I can hopefully get inspired to eat the wonderful meals I'm reading about... on the first page at least. I started to tear up at the end of page 1 because I'm crabby as hell, and starting to feel really bad for eating... sheesh, what have I eaten? Sub sandwiches have been big recently, but that's about it.

Stressed + (borderline)depressed = not much food.

mama! With me I think I post more about really great meals I'm proud to make....not so much on the subs we had for lunch or muffin I buy everytime I grocery shop.

Gonna commit to some more openness here...not that I'm lying, just not fully disclosing
Sometimes that first tri is all about just making it!

I that cookbook! I make almost all of our meals from it. Love that pumpkin soup! I just made the asparagus quiche w/ brown rice crust. Never have made the Phad See Ew though! Have to look into that!

Tonight it's going to be Vegan with a Vengeance- the indian spicy rice, and tomorrow hopefully the mango ginger tofu w/ coconut rice.

I felt so sick yesterday morning/afternoon. I was not hungry but I knew eating something would help me feel better. I had a Popeye's fried chicken sandwich (and I never eat fast food). It made me feel totally better. Actually made the nausea go away!
pg stomach is so weird.

Now I'm making spinach lasagna and I am vacillating between wanting some real bad, to feeling sickened at the thought of it!

Anything, as long it's just a little bit of it at a time. Last night's bedtime snack was ginger snaps.

Oh, and horseradish. Straight for the jar.

Today I had the oddest craving for canned asparagus spears, and just ate a can myself, with a lot of mayonnaise, pepper and vinegar. : I never really crave anything other than protein, and I have barely been interested in eating, so this was funny.
