People like to ask me if I've had any weird cravings throughout my pregnancy. So far, I have had none (thank God!). But weird can mean many, many things. And I think wanting things we don't normally want, counts.
And in my case, it's the curious case of "I LOVE FRUITS". Adik can attest to this. She gawks every time I consume fruits these days.
Because when I was not pregnant, I never ate fruits. Fruits would be the last thing I take from the buffet line and that was only if the line for other food was too long. If I can help it, I don't have a helping of fruits at all. And of course, it was never something I considered as part of my daily diet.
But this sudden fruit obsession began even at early pregnancy. From papaya to apples to more apples. And now, I've got my heart set on grapes. Yes. Grapes in the flesh and anything grape flavoured or grape based too.
Like grape Vitagen and black Ligo raisins.
Speaking of Ligo raisins, prior to this, I never liked any kind of raisins. I used to pick them out of my food and leave them at the side of my plate until my mom saw them and ate them because she didn't like people to waste, bless her.
These days, I can eat a box of Ligo raisins in about 5 minutes tops. It's so ridiculously yummy, you've just got to have it at one go.
I read the label and Ligo raisins is made in the US.
The grapes I'm obsessed about it also imported from the US. Oh, yes, I only want them fresh exotic grapes sold at Carrefour. It's also ridiculously sweet, it's sure to appease this sweet tooth I have suddenly developed. They cost RM10.00 for 500 grams, but seriously, who cares. It tastes so damn good, I'm willing to pay.
Have any of you been to a grape farm? And is the fruit really that sweet, even freshly picked from the vines?
I know that I can eat as much fruit as I want because it's good sugar and everything, but I surely don't want to be tricked into thinking that that's all I am consuming. I always wonder if they've done anything to condition the fruit to taste sweeter than it really is. Tak pasal-pasal kena minum air gula pulak nanti.
Hmm. But I think I can be rest assured that grapes, as in the fruit is healthy, right?
And if you love grapes, pregnant or not, seriously get them at Carrefour. I don't know about Carrefour at other places, but the one in Alamanda does not disappoint.
Slurp. Yum. Yum.Yum.
