Insatiable Appetite

tiger

Up until this weekend, my appetite has been pretty normal.  As a Paleo eater, it wasn’t unusual to do an occasional IF (intermittent fast) just because I wasn’t hungry.  Eating nutrient-dense foods tends to keep food volume consumption down and hunger at bay.

So I have found my sudden, ravenous hunger rather annoying.  To make things worse, my body doesn’t seem to want to digest food properly, causing much distress.  It’s enough to make anyone cranky.

So why is it that family members must tempt the beast by demanding the rest of what I am eating?  Really.  Whatever I have, they want – all of it.  This could get dangerous!  They took my eggs, sardines, dill pickles and mint chip (coconut milk) ice cream.  I was shocked at their insistence and greed.  Of course, they haven’t seen anything yet – at least my son hasn’t.  Hubbs vaguely remembers what it was like when I was pregnant with said son nine years ago.  And he still took my food.  Oy.

I tell you, I almost cried when my son snatched the last of my mint chip “ice cream”.  *sob*  Geez, do I have to start hiding food now?  Best not come to that…  *ROAR!!*

Pickles & Ice Cream

Discovered Bubbies Kosher Dill pickles Friday. Whoo! They are really strong, but oh so good!  Turns out they are a very effective digestive aid, which I really need right now.  My son went bonkers for them and finished off the jar, sending me back to the store.  He also ate all of my So Delicious Mint Chip…

At the checkout, it dawned on me that I was buying the stereotypical pregnancy crave: pickles and ice cream!  Hahahahaha!   Well, at least I don’t plan to eat them together.  I was very relieved that the checkout clerk didn’t notice and chuckled to myself… Hey, there’s a blog post in there somewhere!  😉
