Eating

I love food when I am pregnant. I actually always love food, but during pregnancy it tastes amazing and is so much more satisfying. I could never remember what I craved with Saben, except for Chicken McNuggets. Thankfully that craving is gone this time and I decided what I really crave all the time is fruit. It started with the limeade every night, then progressed to eating pounds of strawberries dipped in sugar in the evenings. Now its blueberries & nectarines. Saben & I have eaten 2 pounds of blueberries in less than 2 weeks. Thank goodness they are on sale this week at Haggen!


This pregnancy I am also able to eat a lot more veggies and am less picky in general. Even salmon tastes delicious, which I avoided last time. The only bad habit that carried over into this pregnancy is that if I eat anything sweet in the evening, I immediately want some salty popcorn. Really, I think pregnancy just increases my natural food tendencies because I love salty & sweet together. But lately its been almost unbearable to not go make a bag of popcorn to go with my icecream.


Lastly, a little plug for my new love, these delicious Raspberry Sorbet & Vanilla Frozen Yogurt Haagen Dazs bars. mmmmmm......

have you tried fresh mint in limeade? It's amazing!

I've also discovered that cinnamon and sugar ON popcorn tastes like pie crust. Yum!

I'm trying to give up such snacks, so please enjoy some for me!
