The Pregnancy Diet: We Always Want What We Can't Have


There's something about pregnancy that makes me constantly crave foods that I cannot eat, even those I seldom ate when I wasn't expecting. As tempting as alcohol may be to some mamas-to-be, my beverage of choice since becoming a mom is Starbucks iced green tea. It has a fair amount of caffeine so I'm not comfortable downing it while with child, but I do plan on drinking a Venti in the hospital bed once this bundle of joy arrives.

Then there's the listeria issue, I'm not a big cheese eater, but every salad that sounds appetizing lately contains crumbled bits of gorgonzola or feta which fall into the unpasteurized and off limits category. Are there certain foods you fiend while pregnant — did you abstain or indulge?
