My husband has told me that, if I ever got pregnant, he would know immediately, because I'd start eating like a normal person. I have very creative tastes in food, mainly centering around condiments. Of course, most of my foods make people a little nauseous; a soup made of cottage cheese and salsa, mashed potatoes and mustard, cheddar slices dipped in tomato juice, spaghetti and pickles...you get the idea. But a few of my snacks have actually won rather universal popularity, so I figured I would share them with you. They're simple enough that you don't need to make it into an 'official' recipe format.
For the first, all you have to do is combine cottage cheese with a fair amount of pitted green olives (try to estimate 1 per bite). Mix well, then eat with Ritz crackers (Ritz crackers are crucial; don't try generic Ritz or anything crazy like that). This can actually replace a meal, and it's quite healthy; be careful though, because it's low in calories, but high in salt.
The second is my favorite, for a couple reasons, not least that this is a filling, practically zero calorie alternative to chips and dip. Peel and slice a small cucumber (crosswise, so you get little disks). Then, either put salsa into a bowl on the side and use the slices to dip, or arrange the cukes on a plate and pour salsa over them. For an additional flavor twist (but keep in mind, it'll raise the amount of calories in this snack) mix feta cheese into the salsa.
Hope you enjoy my strange snacks!
