Mama-to-be Drew Barrymore Talks Comfort Food and Good Eating Habits

What pregnant mama doesn’t have food on their minds?

Actress Drew Barrymore, 37 who is pregnant with her first child, recently spoke with Food and Wine Magazine about her food habits, her favorite foods and her biggest indulgences.

It’s no secret that pregnant woman have their fair share of food cravings and aversions and while the coin “eating for two” is widespread, it’s not technically true. It’s still important to eat healthy, but also important to let yourself indulge and it sounds to be that Drew is doing just that.

In the September issue of the magazine, Drew shares, “I’m a carb queen. I’ll always order macaroni and cheese, but I don’t want it to be fancy. I want it to be as close to Kraft as it can possibly get. I get a little bummed out when there is too much fancy stuff going on and it doesn’t resemble the original dish at all.”

When it comes to eating at home though, the one thing you will always find in her fridge is soup, “I always have a giant container of soup that I’ve made over the weekend for the week. Right now there’s a curried heirloom tomato—lentil soup. I’m really passionate about Tupperware.”

The superstar actress also confessed that she is not cool and relaxed while cooking, she’s in fact the opposite, “I’m not like, ‘Oh, let me just throw this together.’ I’m more like a crazy woman who’s got every single measuring spoon out.”

Guess we all can’t be great at everything :)
