When we have “cravings” - we're not hungry for food. We are not really craving salt or sugar or chocolate or Mexican food. When you have a craving, what your body needs is NUTRIENTS. WHOLE, REAL, LIFE SUSTAINING, AND VITALIZING FOOD!
But sadly, what we most often reach for is empty calories. Or worse: damaging and toxic fillers such as fried foods, fast-foods, salty-snacks, or saturated-fats and junk. We over-eat and under-nourish. We snack up and a few hours later – we feel worse and start the entire cycle over again.
So what do we do when our body craves “something” and nothing seems to satisfy?
