Love at First Taste

I am not kidding when I say I have eaten almost zero vegetables for the past 4 months.  Even the thought of eating vegetables or looking at them was more then I could manage.  Once we went out to Subway and I had a meatball sandwich.  I ordered it with spinach and green peppers (pre-pregnancy those were two of my *favorite* vegetables) and needless to say I picked them off after like one bite.

Yesterday while we went out to dinner with my family, I kept staring at the salad and almost drooling.  It looked SO good and for the first time in a very long time, I wanted it so badly.  Then when it came to ordering, I wasn't sure if I really wanted it because vegetables have made me so sick.  Casey reminded me that I thought it looked so good and I just went with it.

Oh my goodness.  Love at first sight.  Love at first taste.  Love at last taste.  That salad was nothing but amazing!!!  And because it was restaurant sized (meaning HUGE), I was able to save about half for lunch again today.  And even though it was slightly wilty, it was still L.O.V.E. with every single bite.

Hopefully this trend continues!  I love that morning sickness is finally letting up and some of my favorite foods are finally appealing again!!!

Also on a similar note--I enjoy eating sugar again too.  This I'm trying to eat within reasonable limits and not go crazy.  Normally I try to limit myself to one treat a day or less--so it forces me to choose wisely instead of just eating everything....  The goal for pregnancy is healthy (not dieting and not pigging)!!

I noticed your comment about Subway and just wanted to let you know that you are not supposed to eat deli meat while pregnant. I didn't know this for a long time with Matson, so I just thought I would share. I am glad morning sickness it letting up for you and you can eat normally again! The second trimester is the best!
