I read recently that the foods you eat while pregnant can impact your baby's tastes once he or she is born. That means, of course, that I should be filling up on antioxidant-rich berries, fiber-filled zucchini, and salmon chock-full of omega-3 fats.
Do you want to know what I ate all weekend? Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, peanut butter and banana sandwiches (with honey, of course), and hot fudge sundaes. Heavy emphasis on the hot fudge sundaes because I made homemade hot fudge, which is life-changing.
In between sundae time, I did this:
I ate leftover hot fudge straight from the fridge with a spoon.
You can't see this, but I'm hanging my head in shame right now. And in that spirit, I offer up a note to my yet-unborn child:
When you refuse to eat pureed squash in 9 months or so, I promise to remember that it's my fault for not eating enough vegetables while you were still a bun in the oven. I will not have a hissy fit when you throw said squash onto the kitchen floor. I will only cry a few tears of frustration when you follow-up by flinging it at my face instead. And I apologize for that sweet tooth. Maybe you can try applesauce instead of chocolate chip cookies? Be better than me.
