Exclamation Trouble eating the RIGHT food

Hey everyone i have not posted in a while but all is going good. I am now 14 weeks pregnant wow i cant believe how fast those weeks went. But i have a minor problem. Im having trouble eating healthy all the foods that i grave are burgers and fried foods, pizza, i do like salads but with the added toppings might as well be a slice of pizza. What im trying to say is all i crave is fastfoods and i know this is not good. Can some of you mothers and mother to be's give me some sort of direction as to what i should be eating aka all the GOOD foods during pregnancy.

Re: Trouble eating the RIGHT food

you don't have to deprive yourself, but definitely stay away from the fast food joints!
Actually Pizza's not all that bad, sometimes get a pizza with a veggie topping. MY fav is a Broccoli slice! yummm..
Also, if you feel like a burger, don't go to a fast food place, make it yourself or go to a resaurant. Always get it with lettuce and tomato!
If you want ice cream, make a Vanilla shake with extra milk at home, it's good calcium : )

I see it as this.. you can't avoid those pregnancy cravings, but you can make wise choices when fulfilling them : )

Re: Trouble eating the RIGHT food

i agree with jelly! once in a while fast food is ok, but not every day...

Try making healthier alternatives at home...for example, pizza...make it on a piece of wheat pita bread with some seasoned tomato sauce or even spaghetti sauce. I usually also throw a layer of low fat ricotta or even cottage cheese. Then top with fresh/frozen spinach, fresh tomatoes, bell peppers and a think layer of mozarella...throw it in the toaster oven and you've got yourself a home made gourmet pizza!

Craving burgers and fries? make a turkey burger or buy really lean ground beef and make it at home. jazz it up with veggies. For fries, I make oven baked fries. I slice a potato up, toss it with a tablespoon of oil, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper and bake on a cookie sheet (it can be done in the toaster oven too)...

Thumbs up Re: Trouble eating the RIGHT food

Ok you guys this weekend i think i did very well. i had some spaghetti that i made at home with fresh ground turkey instead of beef. I had garlic bread. i even had a salad this was great it filled me up and i had that clean feeling of not being clogged up with grease. When i made breakfast i cooked turkey bacon for the first time its amazing how much grease is not in it. i had boiled eggs instead of fried ones. Overall i actually enjoyed it instead of feeling like i was forced. I think another reason why i craved fast foods so much because i was too lazy to heat up my own kitchen. im 15 weeks 2 days today and i cant wait to feel the baby move. i read some people confuse the baby movement with gas and hungry sounds but im not sure how it is with me i have a doppler i cant hear the heartbeat but i think i can hear the baby moving in the sac sound like its in there swimming. how cute. lol
