I crave new foods! This is exciting to me. I used to crave salt and vinegar chips, brownies, and jalapeño cheese dip. I never considered my self a big junk food eater but now that I look at it I could do pretty bad when I wanted to. I went to the grocery store today and I didn’t even go to the chip aisle. I went to the healthy food section. I wanted to get more flax seeds to add to my almond butter. Muscle Chow Cookbook has a good recipe for doctoring up natural butters such as almond and cashew to make them even better. Almond butter with flax-seed is the new crunchy for me . I eat it with bananas. It’s m y new night-time snack instead of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. I now want avacado instead of mayo on my sandwich. At work we have Quiznos or pizza for lunch during meetings. I can turn it down with confidence. I had a sandwich with whole wheat naan, spinach, ground turkey (seasoned with mexican spices) and sun-dried tomatoes. Yum! I feel like the lean cuisine commercial only better because I made it my self. When the girls are drinking 24 oz Jamba Juice for afternoon snack I pull out my Amazing Meal Chocolate Infusion and mix with almond milk. I still crave food. It’s just different. Do you have new cravings?
