I feel like a junkie!

I just made my boys a pb & nutella on wheat with a side of bananas and strawberries with a strawberry smoothie for lunch...then I ran down the road and grabbed a box of Supremes at Bojangles. (I crave them horribly when I'm pregnant!) My 2-year-old is looking at me like he wants to slap me...I feel like a junkie lol!!

What are you craving today?

  • It's because you're lighting up the same brain centres that heroin does.

    You're starving and your body is doing what it needs to get the calories necessary. Plan to eat 5-6 meals a day, even if they're small... and think of them as 'meals' rather than snacks and you'll select appropriate foods.

    Peanut butter and nutella are virtually the same food (with the exception of the cocoa), especially if you're buying sweetened, salted and shortening-added peanut butter: they're candy, not food. Real peanut butter made from nothing but peanuts is food, but Skippy and Jif are not.
