I love Hebrew National dogs. They taste so much better. I eat hotdogs, I just pan fry them. They taste like they just came off the grill! Yummy. I do same with lunch meat and make hot turkey and cheese sandwiches....with pickles! Geesh now I'm starving lol

My favorite way to do a turkey sandwich is basically make a grilled cheese with turkey and tomato. OMG so good.


Knowing I can do a hot dog heated, I may break down and eat one if I get that craving again.

It's really good on an english muffin too! LOL. Just pop it in the microwave to melt the cheese and heat it up. I could live off those.

You guys are making me want Hebrew National hot dogs! I didn't eat them THAT much before pregnancy, but since I went like 2.5 months without eating them at all and then decided to start eating them as long as they were super hot, I've been craving them more.

If I eat a hot dog I either want it with mustard and sour kraut or mustard, relish, tomatoes, and hot peppers. I cannot even stand putting onion or ketchup on a hot dog.

Im so confused. My doctor said lunch meat is fine as long as I don't have it everyday and that there is no need to heat it up. She said hot dogs are fine as long as Im not eating them cold out of the package (barf), she said tuna and most fish are fine as long as I only eat it once a week or so. And she said NOTHING about egg salad or chicken salad. WTH?! I feel like I am at risk now or something because I have been eating all of those things (within the limits), but I trust my doctor too! Im not sure what to think...

I don't really miss lunch meats--don't eat them much normally, it's just annoying if they serve them for lunch at work, since there isn't really an alternative. I eat hotdogs heated, though not often. I think the nitrates in stuff like that isn't great either, but ok every once in a while. What I miss the most though that is like this is pepperoni, sausages, and smoked salmon. Yum! Sometimes I sneak a little pepperoni if it is heated, because I think that is ok?

It is very confusing what is allowed, what is not recommended, what is supposed to be dangerous, etc . . . Even though I try to be really careful I still mess up. The soft cheese thing is what really gets me!

This helps me a lot to remember what to avoid.

I believe if Deli Meat and Hot Dogs are nitrate free you can eat them just as long as they are heated up to 180 to kill any bacteria.

I haven't heard anything about chicken or egg salad being off limits. Or any meat as long as Its cooked/heated. Working at the health department you'd think I would have heard something. The main thing Is to avoid things that have been sitting out exposed to the air for more than a couple minutes because they have a higher risk of having bacteria. So cold salads like those are fine if you are making them yourself.

What is the deal with nitrates? I know you are supposed to avoid them but why? I would KILL for some salami.

Because nitrates are just nasty for you in general. I just talked to the deli at the grocery store to ask if their meats were nitrate free, and was told the only brand that is safe to eat pregnant that's nitrate free is Boar's Head. So if you go out and want hot dogs or deli meat look for that brand. I was told the only place here in El Paso that sells it is on the west side at a health food store called Sprouts, but I know in NC we bought that brand at Harris Teeter.

Do they cause actual birth defects, etc? Or is it just beacuse they aren't that great for you and you should be eating healthy while pregnant, etc?

Numerous studies have found that nitrites contribute to a variety of negative health effects, which we've compiled here.

Cancer: When you eat nitrites, they can be converted into nitrosamines, which are potent cancer-causing chemicals, in your body. Specific cancers seem to be most affected, including:

Colorectal Cancer: People who ate the most processed meat were 50 percent more likely to develop lower colon cancer, according to a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Stomach Cancer: An investigation into 15 studies on processed meat found that the risk of stomach cancer increased from 15 percent to 38 percent if the processed meats ratio consumed by an individual rose by 30 grams.

Pancreatic Cancer: People who ate the most processed meats had a 68 percent higher risk of pancreatic cancer compared with those who ate the least, a study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found.

lunchmeat

If you love lunchmeat, pepperoni, bacon, sausage and other cured meats, look for nitrite-free varieties in your grocery store. If they're not there, request them!

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD): People who ate more than 14 servings of cured meats per month scored lower on tests of lung function and had an increased risk of COPD compared with people who did not eat cured meats. For each additional serving of cured meat per month, the study found a 2 percent increased risk for COPD.

DNA Mutations: Hot dogs that contain nitrites have been found to contain DNA-mutating compounds. If enough DNA mutations occur in the gut, it could increase your risk of colon cancer.

Brain Tumors in Children: Children born to women who ate a lot of cured meats during pregnancy had a two to three times greater risk of developing a brain tumor than those born to mothers who did not eat cured meats. Children whose mothers at low levels of cured meats during pregnancy had a moderate increase in brain tumor risk, the study, published in Public Health Nutrition, found.

I just order the veggie sub when I go to Jimmy Johns or Larry's. Yum-O! But I'm not big on deli meat anyway.

I think ANYTHING in moderation is fine. But that is just my opinion. Edited to say, that by anything, I mean food wise. I don't think alcohol, tobacco or any kind of drug is okay. Ever.

Come to think of it, my biggest craving with my twin pregnancy was black forest ham, cheese and horseradish on a roll. I remember eating several per day for a while there in my 3rd trimester (I was on bedrest and had nothing better to do than eat). Thankfully my babies were born healthy and fine.

I eat lunch meat lol with nitrates. It's hard to find any nitrate free in our area. Eh, there are worse things out there but I understand abstaining while expecting.

I loved some black forest ham with dd and she's prefect.
