Pregnancy + Food usually brings to mind thoughts of insane cravings at all hours of the day and ungodly amounts of eating. Banana and pickle sandwiches or cheese cake with sardines, right?
Well not if you are in my shoes!
I am in a major food rut these days. The only foods I am craving are the ones I can’t have and it is sure pissing me off!
This morning I wanted some damn runny eggs and toast for breakfast but nooooo! Wouldn’t want to get salmonella from undercooked eggs, that is not good for Tater Tot huh?
Also, a Subway turkey and ham sub is an amazing lunch time treat but pregnant women can’t have processed lunch meat either so now I am screwed.
We always want what we can’t have huh? I have a box of ice cream sandwiches in the freezer, spinach, tuna, fruits and all sorts of other perfectly good food items that don’t sound appealing to me at all.
And where are my damn cravings? Aren’t pregnant ladies supposed to crave stuff and have no problem wanting to eat? I guess along with lacking morning sickness I am also lacking the pregnancy food cravings, great!
I’ll just force myself to swallow some unappealing foods then and will plan to NOT enjoy any of the food I have to eat for the remaining 5 months of this pregnancy. Ugh!
