The best thing about being pregnant is that people want to feed you all the time. I’ve always had a pretty healthy appetite but as I reach the last few months of pregnancy my hunger has been unreal. In fact, I’ve become the weirdo who is still munching when the table has long stopped eating a long time ago.
Here are the surprising and not-so-surprising things I’ve craved during my pregnancy!
First Trimester: Even though I did not have any morning sickness, I only ate food that is usually reserved for babies, old people, and those who are sick.
Arroz Caldo Chicken Tinola
Scrambled Eggs – Which is weird because I seriously thing that scrambled eggs is the worst form of eggs one person could possibly consume.
Mini White Birthday Cakes from Wegmans
Croissants and Cake
Hot Ginger Water
Toast (Usually with Avocado or Ricotta and Tomatoes on Top)
Papaya (After a brief breakup, we are now buying in bulk again)
I never knew how bakeries stayed in business before since sweets was something that I usually reserved for special occasions…but now I know! Lentil and I have visited pretty much every single bakery in the DMV the past year and we are now making our own cakes from scratch!
