    Spicy Tuna Dip

    While I'm at it, here is another good recipe to boost protein. Do you like spicy foods? If so, this one is totally yummy! It can also be used as sandwich filling.

    Tuna Dip, Spicy

    1 13-oz can white tuna, drained
    1 7-oz can pickled mild jalapeno chiles, chopped, juices included
    1 minced onion
    1 bunch cilantro, chopped
    cup mayonnaise

    Mix ingredients by hand (not blender) until mushy.

    Serve with tortilla chips.

    I like to keep some of this on hand, it makes a great snack in between meals. My sister could not find Tahini, so she used peanut butter and loved it. It is usually found in the health food section of the store.

    Hummus Appetizer

    Serve it cold or at room temperature, with crackers or cubes of french bread, or raw veggies.

    1 can Garbanzo beans. (I drain and rinse, then add a little water to the blender as needed.)
    3 T. Tahini (Sesame Seed butter)
    2 T Lemon Juice
    5 green onions, chopped
    1 clove garlic, pressed or chopped
    1/2 tsp cumin (powdered)
    2 T soy sauce
    1 T fresh parsley, chopped (to sprinkle on top and make it pretty. alternatively, I use dried parsley in the blender with the other ingredients)

    Mix all ingredients except parsley in blender until well blended. Using a spatula, scrape out of blender and into a serving dish. Sprinkle parsley on top and serve.

    A big glass of ice cold milk helps also

    It's funny reading about all these different cravings you women have had! lol!


    For the most part, I just crave food. I got pregnant, and I got HUNGRY!! And I can't not eat. When I'm hungry, I HAVE to eat! I'm like a bear or something. lol!

    I always like hearing stories about pregnancy hormones. One of my friends up in oklahoma said the last time she was pregnant, she was constantly getting cravings for pimiento cheese. She ate a ton of it during her pregnancy, but hasn't touched the stuff since then!

    Boy do I remember those cravings when I was pregnant. Get out of the way...

    I had always shared my plate (whatever I was eating with my husband, because I usually would be full before I finished my plate.) That was when I was not pregnant but look out when I was pregnant do not even look at my plate...those were some good eatin times. Yep. Choice memories.I remember my sister used to hide in a closet and eat blueberry muffins cause she was over doing it...bless her heart. She did get caught...with muffin all over her face.Yep...those were some good times. Nobody would want most of the mixtures I came up with...like yogurt and chopped dill pickles on a flr tortillaicky

    That's my brand of choice too! I go with the chunky, though. I like my peanut butter to have a little crunch to it.

    Completely agree... much better tasting and better for you... lots of good, essential fats and tons of protein.

    My brand?

    My sister didn't have any cravings while she was pregnant, but she could not eat chocolate or pizza without getting a terrible upset stomach. As big of a junk food junkie as she was, it was a pretty rough pregnancy for her!

    My niece could NOT eat meat while she was pregnant. Her son was a vegetarian in vitro!

    I craved spearmint with my oldest. Lifesavers, spearmint sticks, gum, you name it.

    I had a friend who had a craving for cleaning supplies She never acted on it and finally told her doctor about it. It was as symptom of something or other though I can't remember what.
