You Know You’re Pregnant When… FOODPosted: February 17, 2010
I have to say that from the moment the morning sickness phase of this pregnancy passed, the most important thing in my day is food! Not just any food, but very specific (some may say weird) foods and food combos! Now to me and my immediate family this may not seem too out of character. I have been known to often invent “fun foods” as my little brother calls them- putting together a funky combo of ingredients and usually completing the dish with a dipping sauce of some sort.
I don’t think it’s that the foods I’m craving are too strange for the general public to enjoy it’s just the urgency with which I must prepare these “meals” once they cross my mind. It’s like I can’t make it to the kitchen quick enough 🙂 Here are a few that for the last few weeks I just can’t live without… I swear they are delicious!
1 can solid albacore tuna
1 diced granny smith apple
diced ‘hot’ banana peppers
1 diced celery stalk
1 TB olive oil
California garlic salt to taste
red pepper flakes
1 TB salted sunflower seeds
Frozen PB Banana
1 banana split
slather with peanut butter
dollop with cool whip
sprinkle with mini chocolate chips
freeze for one hour
(I have to keep a premade one of these in the freezer at all time- when the craving strikes I just can’t wait an hour and it really has to be frozen!)
Peanut Butter Pie
I got this wonderful recipe on Chow City and I’m sad to say I only had help on two slices! But, it is a Weight Watchers Recipe AND I forgot about the chocolate chips so I’m not feeling too bad about it!
