Pickles and olives! OMG! and I must have ketchup with my eggs. I like the salty/vinegar taste too. The salt is surely connected to my lagging adrenals, but what's the vinegar about?

I've always liked vinegar, but am eating way more now too. I didn't even realize it until I was making an extended family dinner and had my mom try a salad dressing I had made. She thought it was a little heavy on the vinegar :) Never really thought it might be a craving now, very interesting.
VERY interesting, NewMeSC! Thanks for that info, and that makes a TON of sense!

Apple cider vinegar is a natural probiotic. A tbsp in a cup of water each morning is supposed to be really good for you. I was listening to a physician on a radio program and he said it was better than any over the counter probiotics you can buy and cheaper also.
OH my gosh. I used to LOVE drinking dill pickle brine. I've had to cut pickles and olives completely out, because I just swell sooo badly because of the incredibly high sodium content. Cucumbers with a DASH of salt with some vinegar...YUMMMMM.
Also, I HAVE noticed that though sometimes it burns when it goes down, I have a lot less acid reflux when I fulfill my vinegar cravings.

well, my mouth is watering just reading this thread (talk about Pavlov!)
I do like vinegary type things. And when I'm nauseous I want something sour & hot (pickled jalapeņo slices are a favorite) or sour & salty (like vinegar & salt potato chips). Honestly that's what settles my stomach!
When I even see a dill pickle, I feel like Pavlov's dog, my mouth starts watering. I will open the jar of pickles as soon as I get home. Claussen pickles are my favorite. I will drink the dressing, mostly vinegar, after I have finished my cucumber salad. I guess I have vinegar cravings also.
I don't know that I have a craving, but I do find that I use much more vinegar now that I'm eating healthier - it just adds a lot more flavor to veggies and meat/fish dishes.

I don't find this craving odd in any way. Vinegar is delicious.
For one, it makes a wayyyyyy better cole slaw than creamy stuff. Calories aside. Some vinegar, some mustard, some horseradish, skosh of olive oil. Simply delicious.
And we haven't even started in with the balsamics. Last summer on vacation in the quaint and funky little Michigan town near where we stay had a store that sold nothing but olive oil and balsamic vinegars. They had those 'pump' coffee pots of about 10 vinegars with little paper tasting cups.
Thank you for actually answering, Leanie. :) I think I shall. I have white distilled vinegar right now, but I really love a good white wine vinegar or white balsamic.

Just a thought on the vinegar cravings..google ..vinegar cravings and see what comes up..you may be surprised ..and it may help you..I love google. Too I love vinegar foods..such as pickles and my hubby drinks about 2 T. a day with his water for health benefits..but the vinegar he consumes is organic apple cider vinegar..this type of vinegar is touted as a weight loss help as well..
No. I am NOT pregnant. It just isn't physically possible for almost 7 years now...I got my tubes tied after my son was born.
Once in a while, I get this almost insatiable craving for vinegar. I have it WITH stuff, like hardboiled eggs or raw vegetables so I don't feel like a wierdo, but I have been known to just take sips every now and then. Is it because my body is missing something that this happens? Or is it just...a craving?
