When I was pregnant, I thought I didn’t have any pregnancy cravings. Yet looking back, I can definitely see some cravings and aversions that I overlooked (or just flat-out denied). I always wanted eggs and juice in the morning, and I could have lived on cupcakes and cheeseburgers in those last two month. (As for aversions, I still can’t eat mushrooms, raw sushi or tomatoes — all foods I loved before getting pregnant.)
Of course I tried to avoid the unhealthy cravings as much as I could.
Yet when I was baking with Noah last week, I realized that there are so many lessons to teach an older child while giving into your sweet tooth. And now that I have Noah, I can look at my pregnancy cravings as a way to bond and teach.
That’s my justification and I’m sticking to it.
So if you’re having some trouble avoiding the baked goods, here are 10 reasons to start baking (thanks to Pillsbury):
