  • Junk Food

    Hey,

    So what food do you go to grab when you're just in the mood for junk food. I realize some of you are past this urge and good for you (not sarcastic lol) but I am not.

    I am trying to think of some foods that would be quick (grab and go).

    The food I reach for the most is Lay's Potato Chips. I also have Pringles and Sun Chips and taco chips but those somehow still taste too 'healthy' for me.

    When I get in a fast food mentality I grab a plain cheeseburger and fries from McDonalds.

    So any other suggestions? My period is about to start (hormones) can you tell?

      Crisp bean burrito --- be sure to ask if anything has been added for seasoning.
      Pizza with no tomato sauce (It's actually good that way).
      Ice cream with caramel or marshmallow cream topping.

        Where do you get the Crisp Bean Burritoes Donna?

        Andrea, I was happy to see this post because I crave junk food like crazy around my period.

        I love vanilla cupcakes and sugar cookies. Could eat a ton of them.

        Diagnosed: 2011 - have had symptoms for over 20 years. Diagnoses so far: Overactive Bladder, then IC, and now Myofacial Pelvic Pain Syndrome.

        Medicines: For IC am doing PT, and will be taking Gabapentin, Ativan, Tramadol and Ambien. Ice packs and drinking vanilla shakes help. Foods that cause a flare, tomatoes, yogurt, coffee, soda, all sports drinks, and most teas. Take Verapamil, Naproxen (as needed), Omeprazole, Frova (as needed) and receive Botox shots(every three months) for migraines. For allergies I use Claritin and Flonase. (Feel free to ask me any questions about meds.)

        Other conditions: Migraines, allergies, mild IBS.

          Thanks all for the suggestions!

          I would too like to know where you get a crisp bean burrito Donna.

            I'll add carob cupcakes. Someone in my IC group brought them to a potluck, and since she knows I have a kid at home she let me take home the six that were left. My son never touched one of them. She used the recipe from Bev Laumann's "Taste of the Good Life" cookbook plus Dr. Oetker's white frosting mix.

            I also like potato chips (but oh how I miss the salt and vinegar ones), pretzels, popcorn, burger/fries/shake combo, white cake with white frosting, white chocolate Reese's peanut butter cups (you can get a bag of mini's at Target), rice krispie treats, and I like to make my own "trail mix" with cashews, almonds, dried blueberries, and white and peanut butter chocolate chips.

                Carob is the best thing in the world for an IC patient. LOL I can honestly say I don't miss chocolate at all. I have only made carob chip cookies but I am excited to make cake/frosting with it. And I have those white peanut butter cups which taste just like the regular ones to me.

                Aww Donna. We don't have that chain here.

                  May I ask what kind of carob do you buy?

                    SunSpire Unsweetened Carob Chips. I did not buy them from here but you can find them in the shop on this site.

                      Thank you so much. I found a bag of carob chips, but it had soybeans or soy lecithin. So I did not buy them. Thank you so much! Hope you are feeling well!

                        Ditto what everyone else said, but I do want to note that there are preservatives in most buns from restaurants. In addition, there could be bad ingredients in the fries as well. So, just be careful not to eat too much of those things when you first try them out.

                          I found in Trader Joe's Organic Popcorn with Olive Oil and Sea Salt. That is it. I tried a handful and so far so good. I will let you know. I am still in the phase of calming my bladder down. I think I am a scaredy cat to try anything to risky yet.
