Maria asks…

What foods cant I eat now that I’m pregnant?

I have just found out that I’m pregnant, and I need some advice on what foods I should be eating and the foods that I should avoid. I love eggs but I have heard that you have to avoid these whilst pregnant, can anyone tell me why??

Jimmy answers:

Raw Meats and Seafood including sushi – all uncooked and rare meats and seafood should be avoided due to high risk of listeria and salmonella poisoning.

Deli meats including hot dogs – these deli meats might be contaminated with listeria bacteria which may result in miscarriage or even a stillbirth. It’s safe to eat deli meats if you reheat them until steaming hot.

Refrigerated smoked seafood – for the same reason of listeria contamination. It is safe if they are contained in cooked dishes. Canned and shelf-stable versions are safe to eat.

Raw eggs – raw eggs may contain salmonella. Some Caesar salad dressings, mayonnaise, homemade ice cream and custards as well as Hollandaise sauces may be made with raw eggs. It is best to check with your server in a restaurant; if in doubt, it is best to avoid it. In addition, unpasteurized eggnog should be avoided.

Fish high in mercury – avoid high-mercury fish such as Shark, Swordfish, King Mackerel and Tilefish. Also limit fish intake to no more than 2 servings per week. For more info – read Is it Safe to eat Fish during Pregnancy?

Soft cheese – avoid the following soft cheeses: Feta, Brie, and Camembert cheeses, blue-veined cheeses, queso blanco, queso fresco and Panela. They are safe to eat if they are labelled pasteurized.

Refrigerated pâtes or meat spreads – for the same reason of listeria contamination. It is safe to eat the canned or shelf-stable versions.

Liver – liver is a rich source of iron. However it contains a high level of Vitamin A. Large amounts of Vitamin A can be harmful to the baby.

Unpasteurized milk and juices

Alcohol – many documented fetal abnormalities and birth defects have been associated with alcohol use during pregnancy

Sandy asks…

I know vegetarian food is probably a little more expensive than normal food, but by how much?

Can you just write how much regular hot dogs, hamburger patties, chicken nuggets, etc. cost and then how much Boca, MorningStarFarms, Amy’s, etc. cost in comparison please and thank you :)
Kay, so it seems like the question was more complicated than i expected it to be.
Therefore, i will simplify it.
Could you just tell me how much you pay for your Boca/MorningStarFarms/Amy’s.
Thanks ;)

Jimmy answers:

It’s hard to do an apples to apples comparison since many meats are sold by the pound, but here is some info that may help:

TVP vs. Ground beef: TVP (textured vegetable/soy protein) can go for $1.50-$2.00/lb, and ground beef ranges from $1.55-$3 and up. In sauces or homemade meatloaf, you could use them interchangeably.

Veggie burgers at Costco or Trader Joe’s can be a bargain, but are very different from hamburgers. And you can get both in packs of 12 in my area. I forget the prices but I think the Morningstar burgers (some are vegan, some vegetarian) a few bucks more than the frozen meat patties.

I have seen whole chickens at Costco at $1/pound, but that isn’t all meat. The chik’n nuggets made from mycoprotein or vegetable sources are all more expensive, at least by $1/pound. Again, hard to compare.

Overall (not that you asked LOL) you can eat more cheaply if you are willing and able to schedule a day to make big batches of meals and freeze some. We buy sacks of rice, beans, frozen vegetables and whole grains and have figured some meals for being $1/meal (for 2 adults and a toddler). That’s only stuff we make from scratch, but again it’s not so hard if you do it on Sunday evenings for the rest of the week. TVP is the best bargain but you don’t want to eat soy every day.
