When I was pregnant I had some fun cravings - cheese pizza and egg rolls. Together. I couldn't eat one for lunch and one for dinner. They had to be eaten a bite of one and then a bite of the other. Zilla was awesome and didn't complain once about my desire to take out egg rolls and bring them into Pizza Hut so I could eat both. He sat right next to me and ignored the stares of the other patrons and the raised eyebrows from the wait staff.
The other day I got the sudden urge for the exact same thing (and I promise you, I'm not pregnant). I think it was probably more nostalgia than anything else. And the fact that I'd skipped both breakfast and lunch, was starving and couldn't decide which treat I wanted more.
I don't often deal with cravings. Occasionally I'll have this unavoidable urge for chocolate. I try not to keep it around because if it's in the house I eat it. But when I get that craving...I'd walk to the ends of the earth to get some. Other times I need something salty. Yesterday all I wanted was a salad. But not just any salad. One from Wendy's. With their ranch dressing and the pecans that have a touch of sweetness - the perfect balance of sweet and tangy.
Great, I'm making myself hungry. So while I go get myself a snack, what do you crave most often? Do your cravings change with the day/month/year? Do you crave your favorite food or find that most often you want something exotic?
