pregnancy food cravings oreos

I had weird pregnancy food cravings all throughout my pregnancy with Some Boy, and this one's no different. Common suspects include Oreos, waffles, jalapeño poppers and ice cream. My blood sugar levels were pretty high with Some Boy, to the point that the nurse inquired about my pregnancy food cravings. “You can have ice cream on occasion,” she said, “Just not every single night. And maybe don't eat an entire package of Oreos every day.” Oreos were my weakness. Still are. I can't seem to stomach much meat and I just want sweet stuff constantly.

But then Jennie-O reached out and invited me to take part in a healthy switch campaign, where participants give up an unhealthy food and put the money towards a healthy food donations for kids in need. Obviously, the Oreos had to go. At about $3 per package and one and a half packages being eaten around here per week (see? It's not one a day. I show some self-restraint with my pregnancy food cravings), I figure I can easily save about $20 in one month to donate a healthy food option for kids. I'll let you know how that goes here in a month.

In the meantime, I was browsing the Jennie-O meats at Walmart and discovered that their turkey breakfast sausage is the exact same price as my beloved packages of Oreos. Plus, breakfast sausage is one of the few meats that I can stomach right now. Coincidence? I think not.

I'm still eating some of my pregnancy food craving favorites, but slowly making healthier choices. Go me!
