If you've been pregnant, or researched what you can/can't eat while pregnant, I'm sure you've read that you should avoid raw sushi fish. When I found this out I was devastated. It is a weekly staple in my life, I love it, crave it, almost need it. So, I started researching. I learned, that by flash freezing fish for a minimum of 24 hours, any parasites that MAY have been in the fish would be killed. I decided this wasn't enough proof to make me feel safe, so I decided to speak to my sushi chef. He told me the same thing, and that all of their fish comes frozen. Then, I decided before having it, I'd speak to my doctor, who confirmed this as well. So, for the past 3 months, I have continued to eat raw sushi weekly, and will continue to.
I may eat/drink things you question during this pregnancy, but believe me, I have done my research and feel safe in everything that enters my body. Feel free though, to send me an email anytime about what I eat, I'm happy to talk about it.
So, for lunch, a wonderful serving of salad and sashimi. :)
