As long as what you're eating is cooked, I don't know why not? I don't know what a filet tower is though so I guess I'm no help :P

There really are no 'bad' foods (unless things aren't cooked properly or you are typically told to avoid them - though plenty of women eat soft cheese and sushi and whatnot all through pregnancy and are fine). The only less than ideal thing about KFC is that it's high in fat and sodium, but that's only bad if it's the only thing you eat. As an occasional treat, it's fine. You aren't any more likely to get a food-borne infection from KFC than you are from a fancy restaurant. They all have to follow the same safety standards and have the same health inspections. So don't stress, enjoy it and make up for it tomorrow with lots of fresh fruit and veggies.

haha KFC was my number one craving for the longest time and it's still there from time to time but if you found mixed reviews online, that's probably what you will get here. I don't want to bother researching to come up with an answer for you but I think with an educated guess, it is not the best thing for you to eat because of the fact that it is deepfried (transfats and whatnot). It's the batter that's the worst (but tastes the best!) imo. However, if you want to eat it on occasion, I can't see the harm so you go and eat that KFC girl! Just don't eat for two. It can't be much much worse than other women cheating with ice cream and cake on several occasions

I was explicitly told by my doctor NOT to eat at KFC (or any fast food for that matter). The food is very processed and it has a lot of chemical additives. She also said no chinese food. I'm sure that once or twice won't be terrible, but there are much better things you could eat. For me this is torture because I would sell my favorite cat for a thing of cole slaw from KFC. We also had chinese once a week for the past year as our date night. I have found some awesome imitation recipes that you can make at home that taste similar or better. Check out foodnetwork.com or pinterest. I found an amazing recipe for baked buffalo dip and crock pot chinese food. I know exactly what is going into my food and I can adjust anything that I shouldn't be having.

The only fast food that I am allowed to have is Chipotle. Most of their food is organic and very few additives. It's good, because all my baby wants is Chipotle.

Ditto. I typically don't like spicy foods and I eat lots of chicken and chocolate. I have had no desire for chocolate and I have been starting to eat red meat a couple of times a week. So annoying! Fried foods make me gag and I was huge on that a couple of months ago! It's not good when the husband looks confused because I am eating celery.
