What I’m Loving… (Okay, Craving)

by Lauren on March 28, 2014

So I realize that these so called, “favorites” posts that I write aren’t really fair from here on out.  Usually, the process is, I relay a photo collage of products that I’m favoring at the time being.  Well, going through these photos on my phone, it dawned on me that these are just a few things that I’m craving for the week and I credit any craving I have these days to my  raging hormones, so I guess it’s more like what my prego self can’t stop obsessing over for the week.

Anyways, here it goes…

 

Coffee

Ugh, it’s back!  I spent the first 12 weeks of this pregnancy loathing even the slightest smell of coffee, and then I had my first cup this week and it was a beautiful reunion.  Before you get all, “caffeine and pregnancy is a big no,” let me assure you I am only having one cup a day, which my doctor said is absolutely fine.  I enjoy a warm freshly brewed cup when I get to work in the morning and it paves the way for a wonderful day.

Sticking with the beverages….

OJ

I’ve had this craving from day 1 and it continues to be at the forefront.  I usually have a swig first thing before I hit the gym in the morning, and a small glass while I take my vitamins.  Vitamin C is great for the baby’s development so I’m totally okay with this one.

Grapefruit

I’ve always been a grapefruit fan, but certain things taste SO MUCH better to me now than they ever did.  Grapefruit is one of them.  I’ve been enjoying one most afternoons as a snack and I can’t get enough of them!

Fro-yo

So, I had to admit this, but I believe I’ve fallen into the stereotypical ice cream obsessed pregnant lady.  I tried so hard to limit this to once a week, but John came home last night with this and I had to dig in.  Nights are still not the best time of day for me, but I swear, when I eat some fro-yo before bed it just feels so good!  It’s almost soothing in a way.  I figure, there is only a few times in your life when you have justification to eat ice cream every day and this is definitely one of those times.

Lastly, this isn’t really a craving, but I just had to share the pretty phenomenal dinner we had tonight.

Butternut squash risottos with chicken apple sausage, brussels sprouts and goat cheese.  Amazing!

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and plans for an unforgettable weekend!

I had the same aversion to coffee (especially HOT!) for the first 12 weeks – but needed the caffeine to prevent a headache, so I would drink a half of a coke every morning, I also think the sugar helped with my hot mess of morning sickness. Right around 12 weeks, I got back to drinking my one cup of coffee a day – ENJOY IT!

Let’s be real, ice cream is not a craving, its just a necessary part of life pregnant or not :) That dinner looks AMAZING its all of my favorite things into one meal! Yummy.

That dinner looks to die for! And grapefruit…mmm.. didn’t think it was possible for it to taste much better. Looking forward to that part of pregnancy (one day)!

I was ALL about OJ all throughout my pregnancy too. It was so refreshing and tasted so good to me! And wow – that dinner sure does look phenomenal! Yum!
