Sushi, Corn on the Cob, and Pickles
Weird combination, huh? Not if you’re pregnant! If you’re wondering where I’ve been…that’s it. I had quite the first trimester of sickness, but now that I’m about half-way through my pregnancy, I’m feeling much better. My appetite and energy have returned. I’m still not cooking very much (because who can plan ahead to have random things on hand?), but I’m feeling up to writing…so I’M BACK!
One Saturday a few weeks ago, I had to jump in the car to go to Publix immediately to grab those three items in the title of this post. I knew none of those things went together, but I had to have them. Most of the time, I haven’t been able to decide what I wanted to eat so this was a change for sure!
Don’t worry, I’m not eating raw fish sushi…only cooked or veggie only. I’ve had a hard time sticking to my two servings of fish a week. I just love it so much. It’s healthy and easy on my tummy, and I’m fairly sure I’ve exceeded the “recommendations” a few times…oops. There are worse things, right? I always vary the type of fish and never eat anything high in mercury.
For posterity’s sake, here are a few things I’ve been eating cantaloupe, plain rice and noodles, saltines, dill Triscuits, apples, pineapple, shredded wheat (Kashi – Island Vanilla), everything bagels with veggie cream cheese, asparagus, dumplings (no chicken), not a lot of meat in general but chicken and fish over beef, Mexican food (beans and rice!), grapes, tomatoes, peanut butter sandwiches, cottage cheese. For drinks, it’s mostly been water with the occasional lemon/lime soda, ginger ale, sweet tea, and very seldom coffee or Dr. Pepper when I need a small boost of caffeine.
So what’s the scoop?
