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?

      With my twins I couldn't eat anything but Rice Krispies for the first six months. With Cory I craved salty food. With Mindy chips and salsa.

          I craved spicy mexican food and pineapples with whipped cream. I gagged on the sight and smell of sea food.

              Makes sense why I still love egg sandwiches with mayo and salted tomatoes with American cheese, lol!
