Okay so I'm officially starting to scare people. I'm generally a fan of very bland food I don't even like onions. So it started with the spicy nachos/tacos/hotwings, not too surprising I had a spice kick early on in my first pregnancy but then instead of craving veggies and protein like last time I started craving sweet/salty things. Best I've been able to manage is S&V chips and oranges since chocolate makes me sick. I was notorious last time for my infamous peanutbutter, pickle and cheese sandwiches and close to still moo-ing steak but this time around is getting crazier. The thing that worries me is that at least last time most of what I craved made sense and was healthy this time though I find myself waking up from dreams about deep-fried candy apples, cheesies and baked potato smothered in every form of grease known to man. I assure you all I'm a small woman and would like to be able to be that way after this pregnancy so as I battle my current desire for beer-batter fish & chips with cheesy pickles I am compelled to know is anyone else having insane cravings? Is this a second-pregnancy thing? What's a healthy alternative for salt, cheese, and/or sugary stuff? and for the love of all that is holy has anyone heard of a deep-fried candy apple? I'd make one myself if I could but I'm not very creative.
