Pregnancy Cravings are REAL. And Sometimes Really Just Weird.
Most of us have had them. You know. Those sudden “must have” cravings during pregnancy that have us reaching for foods we’d never loved (or sometimes never even liked!) before. So, when some of our favorite celebrities share their cravings, we can relate! Were any of these foods on your list?
Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” took to Instagram just recently to share a 2:30 am urge for sugar cereal, pimento sandwiches, ranch dressing and more! She settled for cookies, instead.
“Woke up this morning at 2:30 AM and was craving fruity pebbles, a pimento cheese sandwich, chicken spaghetti, deviled eggs, and ranch dressing. Didn’t have any of that so I made myself some cookies. With all the restaurant’s final tastings, the cookbook (yes these cookies are in it!), and this pregnancy-I’m definitely growing at a record rate #magnoliatable”
Supermodel Hannah Jeter, wife of former New York Yankees captain Derek, admitted to Extra! that her cravings were completely off the path she usually takes when it comes to food.
“So I don’t eat meat, but now I crave beef jerky all the time, which is kind of interesting. I like a lot of gummies, like candy and stuff like that… anything salty, sweet. Now it’s like… give me everything!”
And, what is it about pickles? Turns out even a princess can’t resist the sour treat of pickles when pregnant! According to Star Magazine, Prince William once made a special request of the Kensington Palace kitchen for a pregnant Kate. He reportedly asked them to send up a sandwich of thinly-sliced pickles on well-done toast.
Singer-Songwriter Alicia Keys came up with her own special recipes to satisfy her unusual cravings, she reported to one interviewer.
“I’ve had this strange craving for roasted fruit, like roasted cherries and grilled bananas, and that’s sounds crazy, but it’s real easy. You put it on what you might make a panini on and you grill the banana and it’s amazing.”
When Gwen Stefani was pregnant with her boys, she couldn’t get enough spice. She is even reported to have carried a bottle of Tabasco in her purse! Friends claimed to Babble.com that there were only three categories of food that Gwen wanted…hot, hotter and hottest!
So, tell us, Moms! What was your strangest craving?
