The actress, wife of Curtis Stone, shares what she's been craving in pregnancy.
We found out what the actress (whom you may recognize from Hawaii Five-0 and, yes, Beverly Hills, 90210) is hankering for as she awaits the arrival of her second child this fall—and how her sweetie Curtis Stone makes it happen.
Lindsay Price: I think we crave what our bodies need, so we should pay attention to cravings. I want guacamole, and I think it's because my body needs good fats.
Curtis Stone: I was ready for that—she craved guac like crazy when she was pregnant with our son Hudson, too! We're lucky because it's the perfect time of year for fresh avocados.
LP: The other night Curtis asked me what I would eat for dinner if I could have anything in the world, and I said lobster, pasta, tomatoes and veggies— somehow I was dreaming of eating all of those together. So he went to the farmers market and made me this fresh pasta and lobster dish that I can't stop thinking about because it's all of my favorite foods in one!
CS: Often, Lindsay will want something and it winds up at my restaurant Maude. She had a major sweet craving a little while back, and I offered her ricotta fritters—basically donuts—that we were in the middle of testing for the restaurant. They were a hit with Lindsay, and they made it onto the menu.
LP: I am trying not to go crazy this pregnancy, because when I had Hudson, it was hard to lose the weight afterward. I've been conscious of eating healthy and having lots of organic fruit, like peaches and berries.
CS: Fortunately we have a big vegetable garden—it's almost like a salad bar just outside our back door. I also go to the farmers market every Sunday and Wednesday for work, and shop for our family there, too. I always buy beautiful fruits so there's a bowl of them waiting in the kitchen that's as tempting as a candy bar. I recommend doing that since you'll make a beeline for them when you want something sweet.
