Controlling Cravings
 
Or lack of... I've started to feel better and today i had to go grocery shopping for gravy only. Well, i decided the baby and i want home made smoothies, cookies and hot turkey wraps too. I almost forgot the gravy due to my cravings. The good news is the kids love my cravings too so that takes care of lunch and dinner is already cooking :)

So here I was, thinking I was the only pregnant woman in the world to not have cravings...and then BAM I needed macaroni and cheese with hot dogs in it. I literally ate that SIX TIMES in a five day period. I have a problem :) lol I'm over that craving though. For now.

PS...gravy is DELICIOUS! Yum! I could just drink it hehe

Lol They say cravings are due to lack of minerals and the things you crave contain them. If that is in fact true, I'd say it's pretty normal to eat the same thing six times in 5 days; if it's not, blame baby like I am ;) I'm totally on a smoothie kick and MIL just bought me a blender. I'm in heaven lol AGREED that gravy is delicious.

That is my jam! Pregnant or not sadly. lol Right now, my cravings change everyday, unfortunately with my diabetes, most of the time I can't humor myself! :(

I have loved macaroni and cheese with hot dogs ever since I was little. But definitely love it a lot more now that I am pregnant! Sucks that you can't indulge as much as you would like to!

Uhhh I went out last night for ravioli. Like I NEEDED chef Boyardi ravioli. I also got a box of mac and cheese and ate that for breakfast and lunch and dinner today (luckily only one box).
I'm trying to control myself, but I get fixated on the food and healthy food makes me sick (allergic or heartburn)

Me too!! I feel like a child when I eat it, and it's not the best thing for you, but what a way to go! lol

FYI, I am legit about ready to cook myself macaroni and cheese with hot dogs, because I came to read the updates on this post and got hungry for it again...

One of these days I'll find a new food to obsess over! lol
