Hello,

maybe someone experienced the same thing. Since I am pregnant, I can't stand one single of the gluten free breads offered on the market. I guess I just find yeast or eggs disgusting at the moment, or sugar where it doesn't belong to.
I admit I've always found gluten-free bread a difficult issue - back in Germany as well as here in Toronto. Sometimes I imagine the German pumpernickel style bread would work for me now, but who knows. You donít find it here, anyway. (I remember I found it in a Whole Foods Store in Boston once, though!)
I would try to bake my own bread, but just the thought of the whole apartment smelling of something I possibly donít like makes me sick.

So, because of morning sickness and the need of a steady supply of CARBS, I end up standing in the kitchen the whole day, preparing pancakes, mushed potatoes, corn puddings ... fortunately, I have the time for that at the moment!

Does anybody have the same problem? What are your solutions? And do you have any ideas for easy and quickly prepared carbs? I know this could be a topic for the recipe section, too.

Thank you!!!

Omg I couldn't stand anything sweet the first trimester. I made biscuits and almost vomited at the first bite...they tasted sweet (1tbsp. sugar).

It passed....

The only think sweet I wanted (and craved) was apples.

Couldn't stand coffee, milk, bacon.... The only thing that stuck the full pregnancy was milk. Fat free was tolerable, but barely if it was ice cold.

I just avoided stuff I didn't like in the beginning. There's plenty of good stuff to replace it with.... I loved tortillas and frozen (fry them at home) lumpia. Now I'd have to make my own with rice paper but hey, preggo women will do ANYTHING to fix a craving!

Have fun making them. I'm horrible at rolling them.

I had very few food cravings when pregnant. Never to the point where I would have to run out and buy something. But once in a while I would eat something that I bought for my husband that I wouldn't normally eat. I did have aversions though.

Gluten isn't an issue for me but it is for my daughter. I do have medical problems that can leave me sick to my stomach though. We find that white rice works wonders. I make a pot of it every week and keep the leftovers in the fridge. I also keep some pre-cooked packets in the cupboard for a really quick meal. Daughter likes them mixed with canned chicken.

Daughter also likes gluten-free pretzels, rice cakes and occasionaly crackers.
