I haven’t had much in the way of pregnancy cravings. During the first trimester, I had a brief love affair with bagels and cream cheese, but that’s long gone. There’s only one craving that still really gets me: a Wendy’s Frosty. I’ve only had a couple so far and always get the smallest size, but when I start thinking about them, I just need to have one. This afternoon, I was checking Facebook and saw a picture that Lindsay posted of her kids eating a Frosty. Suddenly my gym workout got about ten minutes shorter than normal and i found myself driving to Wendy’s.
But this might be the end. Because I made two crucial mistakes. One, I went inside the restaurant. The drive-thru line was really long and I had to get back to work (I was on my lunch break) so I figured that going inside would be faster. And it was. But the restaurant smelled so strong. It was like fast-food greasy smell times a thousand. It was gross. But my second mistake was even worse. I decided to try the vanilla flavor instead of the traditional chocolate. Now, I’m normally a much bigger fan of vanilla than chocolate stuff, but not this vanilla. Bleh. Chocolate all the way.
Maybe it’s a good thing that today’s Frosty experience was closer to gross than great because I felt much more inspired to come home and make something healthy. So I made Tex-Mex Spaghetti Squash with Black Bean Guacamole.
It was good and totally cancels out the Frosty, right?
