@PatientBee:  Go for it!!! A chicken salad wrap is healthy and will be pretty easy on your stomach, and the protein will help keep you full for a while.

On the days when I am feeling especially nauseated I just try to focus on what my body is telling me. I feel like that’s the only way to get through it…

@PatientBee:  are you worried about listeria? I’m assuming that’s why you’re hesitating. I totally ate chicken salad froma local deli a few times this pregnancy, If you trust the cafeteria I wouldn’t worry too much.

Hm…is chicken salad a no-no?  I’ve eaten it many times in substitute for deli meats.

From my understanding least what was told  2 years ago any cold meat can cause listeria and probably also with the Mayo I would be leary about eating chicken salad

@PatientBee:  I would say its fine to eat. Doctors typically don’t want you to eat cold cuts of meat due to listeria. Honestly, while I would never tell you to go against your doctor’s orders because they are there for a reason, if it were me I would just go ahead and eat it anyway. I ate lots of stuff I wasn’t supposed to because when the pregnany craving is there, it ain’t going away.

Unless you can settle for a mock chicken wrap where you can ensure the chicken is heated very well, I say just go for it anyway.

I was craving chicken salad on Sunday!  I didn’t really knoe where to get it, so DH took me to cheesecake factory and I got a sandwhich. I knew I couldn’t eat tuna salad, but I’ve been eating a lot of chicken and didn’t even think twice about the chicken salad.

MMMM wish I had some right now.

All egg products sold in the US must be made with pasteurized eggs (this is regulated by the USDA) so mayo is not a concern.  The chicken has been cooked so I would not be concerned about that either.  I don’t see much of a risk in eating it!

@PatientBee:  I haven’t gotten any for fear of listeria and all that. At least from a deli. But I’ve started making stuff like that at home that I know is clean, fresh and not cross contaminated. If you listen to all the food stuff you WILL have a crying break down at some point. I have. But I just was so scared by the listeria stuff. I still am. I had bratwurst the other day and dutifily made sure it was at least 165 degrees.
