Food Porn

There’s a nor’easter blowing through the area and I stayed in today, taking it easy and napping and nesting and feeling a little blue.  Normally, a day like today would have me baking some warm, gooey brownies for comfort.  But since brownies are off the menu thanks to gestational diabetes, I have to settle for sugar free Dove chocolates.  Not nearly an equal exchange, let me tell you.  It doesn’t help that every other commercial is for some holiday treat or that my e-mail is filled with advertisements for chocolaty goodness I can have delivered to my door.

For instance, Godiva chocolate cake:

I’m not a big fan of buying baked goods that I could make myself, but I wouldn’t cry if any of these appeared on my doorstep.  I also wouldn’t tell my doctor.  wink

    Oh God, stop looking!

    When I was last pregnant I was a demon for the first six months. You know the voice that makes you walk away from the Ben and Jerry’s? Well, then it was saying, ‘Buy it. Buy and eat it now, get two’. I once found myself sitting no the couch with a whole Swiss Roll clenched between my hands. I wouldn’t be surprised if I’d been growling ferally.

    Happily, it went away and while the baby kept growing happily, I never put on any more weight. Well, until more recently :(

    Hope you stay healthy and it all goes well!

    Oh Jo, you made me laugh.  (Yes, “feral” is a good word to describe a pregnant woman with a craving.)  I’ve been doing pretty well so far (with a couple of notable slips, including Cold Stone ice cream!) and I can go back to eating carbs post-baby, so at least I can indulge in some holiday yumminess.  I’ve actually lost almost 5 pounds on the low-carb diet, so I might go back to it after the holidays to lose the rest of the baby weight.
