Ohh the cravings

Coming off of a 21 day fast, it’s really tempting to devour everything you denied yourself of. BUT WHOA nelly, your body will quickly reject those yummies and you will forever regret having 3 bowls of peanut butter captain crunch. (ehem-clears throat). Where was I…oh yes, cravings. Well, I’m not a big craver but sometimes I have a slight hankerin’ for a soda or chocolate or french fries dipped in soft serve ice cream. That one started with the pregnancy of my second child and never left. I look at it this way, it’s a once in a while bliss so why bother with it.

Anywho, Most of the cravings we have are linked to something in our body that we are lacking. NaturePathyworks.com put together a really cool list of some of these cravings.
