When I was pregnant with Imogen I didn’t crave much in particular. Potatoes was a very early craving (mashed, roasted, fried, baked, chips, crisps etc) and then I had a week of craving chocolate covered Brazil nuts. But I got away quite lightly.
But the first few days of eating clean provide me with the most terrible cravings ever. Having had a rather large blip food wise I am trying to refocus again. I know if I can get past the first 5 days it gets easier. But oh my days, the cravings are hard work today.
Today I have been craving (in no particular order)
- diet coke
- Yorkshire puddings
- garlic bread
- hot buttered crumpets
- hot buttered potato cakes
- buttered scotch pancakes
- chocolate spread on toast.
- baked beans
Trying to snack on nuts, seeds, berries, fruit. All fine in their own right but trying to re-educate my brain and taste buds again. It is going to take a few days to settle, I just need to stay strong.
