Of Cravings

One thing that has been different about this pregnancy has been the cravings.  Sure, there were the odd days when Skittles or Gummy Worms sounded like the best option in the world, but more often, I find myself desiring fruits and vegetables.  I am sure this is my body telling me it needs nutrients for this new little person it's trying to build, but, frankly, I'm glad.  I love being in a place where I actually crave food items that are good for my body, so I don't have to feel guilty giving in.

Lately, thus, my afternoon snacks have involved bananas or strawberries, sliced, frozen for an hour or so and then drizzled lightly with chocolate (ok, sue me).  Absolutely amazing!

Here's hoping these cravings stick around.

  1. When I was pregnant with Amie and with this one I have been craving fruits and veggies too.  I wonder if part of it is being pregnant in the summer and fresh fruits and veggies are just refreshing.  I'm totally with you on this one.
