    Default Confused about Brie and other foods?

    So, I'm getting differing opinions online about this. Some sites say soft ripened cheeses, like Brie, are a no-no. But others say it's ok as long as it's pasteurized.

    All cheese here has to legally be pasteurized. As long as it is, it's ok, right? Or do I have to avoid it still?

    Same with Pate.... I'm confused about that one as well. Some say it's ok, some say no. And what's the deal with Liver? All I'm reading is it's high in vitamin A, but I'm thinking not enough to really cause an issue? I love pate on bread and we eat it a lot in the summer when out at the beach or on my sister's boat.

    And feta? All the sites I've seen say no to feta. I love feta and it's not a soft cheese....

    And soft serve ice cream? Why is that bad? That would mean no Dairy Queen all summer long!

    It's very rare that a cheese here in the USA isn't pasteurized. I say if you want some soft cheese, read the label. That's what I have been doing. I enjoy brie myself and have had it a few times.

    I always looked at it like this - it isn't that these foods are an issue for you only when you are pregnant. It is just that what you could get would be worse if you got it when you were pregnant (since it would affect you and baby) - so in all my years eating feta, it has never made me sick, so I wasn't worried about it. (and like you said it is an issue of pasteurization, and everything here is).

    So i f you are concerned, then avoid these foods entirely - or just be cautious and eat them sparingly

    So....is Dairy Queen soft serve off the list? That's the one I'm thinking about most as I pass Dairy Queen every day at the train station on my way to/from work and it would be sad not to have any all summer. I only eat the Blizzard's there...and I guess that's with their soft serve....

    I have never heard of soft serve being a no-no and I am pretty sure I didn't make it through any of my pregnancies with out a few stops at DQ

    I agree. Also, my OB told me that Feta was ok, never asked about Brie.

    Well, I certainly hope DQ isn't off the list because I've had it twice in the last week. (Just a tiny bit, cuz its too full of sugar, but still...)

    I LOVE me some DQ!!

    I've also had feta on my salads pretty frequently since becoming pg.

    I didn't know these were considered by some to be no-no's!

    I'm craving feta right now. I make this feta/balsamic glazed bruschetta that is awesome:

    - Tomatoes, red onion, and peppers diced all together, put on sliced french bread, top with crumbled feta, bake until hot.
    - In a saucepan, simmer down 1 cup of good balsamic vinegar until it's a syrup consistency. Put into a plastic drizzle bottle (one you can seal and store the rest)
    - When the bruschetta comes out, drizzle with balsamic and eat.

    OMG it is so tasty. The sweet of the veg and onions and balsamic blends well with the salty of the feta. MMMmmmm
