Favorite food during pregnancy
When, I was pregnant, I craved everything I couldn't have. All the healthy stuff I normally enjoy became utterly nauseating. I wanted things like Zero candy bars, pop tarts, hot dogs...
Anything packaged, filled with preservatives, sodium, nitrates, or not recommended for pregnant women, I NEEDED it, lol.
I wanted bologna and soft cheeses and sushi. That was another, I wanted seafood sooo much. I would tide myself over with salmon, but I wanted shrimp and sushi and crab. And bloody steak. Oh my gosh did I want bloody, bloody, basically raw steak.
A couple weeks after I found out I was pregnant, one of those door to door meat salesmen showed up at my front door and laid out boxes and boxes of delicious steaks in front of me and I think I drooled. I haggled SO hard with that man to get literally a freezer full of steak for an affordable price, I'm surprised he still had a job afterward lol. I mean, I got it CHEAP.
I bought them and cooked I think two immediately, albeit slightly saddened I had to cook them thoroughly. Then I made them for dinner too lol.
After that, the nausea really kicked in and I couldn't even look at steak lol. I actually just finished off the last two with hubs tonight.
Come to think of it, I've eaten bloody steaks a lot over the past week... Maybe I should test soon because that's the only reason I've ever craved it like this, hah! We will see.
Oh, and there was fruit flavored Silk non dairy milk/smoothie stuff that I got completely addicted to for about two weeks when pregnant. I probably went through 6-8 half gallons lol.
But vegetables. NO. I couldn't even sniff some lettuce without having to dart to the bathroom.
What about you? What foods did you crave during pregnancy? What gagged you out?
Also sugary cold cereal. Think we had 10 boxes on top of my fridge at one point. lol
And... altoids!! ha!
