the list diaries.
chapter 008.

I love food and I love to eat. as my appetite has fluctuated during this pregnancy, I've come to learn there are staples to my diet -- foods I love more than others and, simply, can't live without.

  • ice cream, particularly breyer's strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla
  • a juicy cheeseburger on a hearty bun, topped with lettuce and mustard, pickles and onion; salty fries on the side
  • fried eggs from the cast iron skillet on my own stovetop and toast -- one of my favourite dinners; I like my eggs for breakfast, not dinner
  • a toasted turkey sandwich with mustard, pepperoncinis, crispy romaine, tomatoes, and havarti cheese with applesauce or cottage cheese on the side
  • green curry with beef from our favourite local thai restaurant -- for takeout, please
  • one of my husband's signature grilled cheese sandwiches
  • steamed broccoli with salt, pepper, and some butter
  • a bowl of homemade granola or kashi's heart to heart honey toasted oat cereal and the milk that's leftover
  • steamed milk with a hint of vanilla and cinnamon sprinkled on top
  • oven-roasted yukon gold potatoes with salt, pepper, and olive oil

unlike other women, I haven't experienced any weird or odd food cravings (mr. brooks hasn't had to make any middle-of-the-night-runs to in-n-out or 7-eleven) or aversions. my diet has remained mostly the same as it was before becoming pregnant, the only difference is sometimes I can eat a little more than I could (or should) before. occasionally I'll crave more salt or a super sweet treat, like a cupcake with a mound of frosting on top, or I'll give in to that tiny bag of cheetos and eat a handful, tossing the rest in the garbage. 

eating is as fun as it was before I was pregnant -- the major difference being that I like eating at home with mr. brooks rather than go out. home food tastes the best, lately, and it's more comfortable for this growing belly.
