What Am I Craving?
Oh man, I've got a craving and I can't put my finger on it. Well actually, I can but I'm not going there. But because I'm denying my love for all things Diet Coke and Chips I am reduced to scouring about for a healthy substitute that will fill the gap. It doesn't help that I'm fussy.
I've eaten a good breakfast and a decent lunch. I've had a couple of glasses of water and some Sencha but it's still there. It's still calling me. I'm sure most of it stems from it being the holiday season and the power of suggestion is strong with me. Very strong...Yoda strong. So what's a girl to do? Well in my case not much more than just plain denial. If what is good is not pallitable and I only want something bad...nothing is what I get.
Ok, fine. What now? Distractions! Yes, good suggestion. I suppose that's what is fueling this odd dialogue/blog today. I found this site that lists what your body is really saying you are craving when you want things like chips and pop. Calcium and Chloride. Um ok. Fascinating huh?
Later I'll be craving Turtles, mandarin oranges, brie, cognac goose liver pâté on crackling whole grain baguette and Sauvingnon Blanc. Gee what does that mean? Holiday Hell!
