It didn’t take getting pregnant to love food. I have always been the type that is constantly planning, and looking forward to, my next meal. I am a healthy eater who schedules treat meals to have balance. When I found out I was pregnant, my Type A personality (which loves checklists and planning ahead) went into overdrive and so did my hunger. I am fortunate because there are a ton of options in Lansing. My food adventures started in April and were completed by mid-October. I couldn’t keep it all to myself so made a Guide to Pregnant Mama Cravings in+ Around Lansing for you to check out and hopefully explore for yourself. Pregnant or not, you will find some tasty eats.
