Cravings


Monday, October 28, 2013



There is nothing like the power of suggestion to start cravings.
Right now...I see candy displays all over the place
and even though, I really don't care for candy anymore
memories keep haunting me.

I have a bag of apples in the fridge...time to make myself a baked apple dessert
and feel like I'm giving myself a treat.



Hang in there.... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I sat next to a bowl of Halloween candy last night at a clothing party. I looked at that bowl several times, we talked about Halloween and the little Trick-Or-Treaters that will be out on Thursday, and the host even offered the candy up to everyone.

I was pretty proud of myself for refusing it. Although, as my bedtime snack I did have 2 pieces of my own chocolate later that I knew the nutrition info on.

    We have Halloween candy but never have any trick or treaters. So you know who the candy is for. I have lost interest in most candy too unless it's killer candy.

    I bought candies that I do not like and will let my son eat whatever is left over after the trick or treaters stop at our house...

    I took a suggestion from a thread in the cafe and bought ice pops. No temptation for me.

    As long as the bags are sealed, I'm good... but come Thursday night, all bets are off! Darn it! Actually I am going out on Thursday, leaving my DH to answer the door. No, I'm not taking my martini glass trick or treating... although it is a thought... but going to stamp cards. maybe it will all be gone when I get home... Hopefully!

Let me know what you make with the apples... I LOVE apple desserts of any kind!

I have just caught up on about 10 blogs of yours! You have been very prolific! Good for you! and I enjoyed every single one!

    I do dried apricots for something sweet - 2 or 3 of them will satisfy me.

    I can tell my cravings have changed, and I also use apples for something sweet, but my guess is that the rest of the year will be tough between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years! Thanks for the reminder!

    Just got off a webinar about food cravings. It seems sometimes our cravings are caused by lack of minerals. Sugar may mean chromium, carbon, sulfur or phosphorous deficiency--so eat meat, fruit. Bread you may need protein-eat chicken, fish or eggs. Chocolate lack of magnesium--eat nuts, seeds or a supplement. Caffeine may mean you need iron rich foods like broccoli, figs, apricots perhaps a chloride lack--fish ,spinach, swiss chard and raw fermented vegetables like beets, sauerkraut. Hot spicy could be zinc need so eat liver, seafood, leafy veggies. Soda may mean calcium deficiency so eat leafy green veggies.

Bottom line eat what is good for you instead. LOL!

    I'm okay with the chocolate as long as it doesn't cross my threshold. Once it's in the door I have no spine.

    Smells do me in. I go into a restaurant with resolve, and leave with a belly full of whatever smelled good. Have to eat out again tonight after the soccer game. I love to watch my son play, but I am so glad the season will be over so that we aren't eating out every night.

    I know what you mean! Just the word chocolate makes me want it! Fortunately, I can eat all the candy I want at the Spark cybercafe. Too bad it's not real!

Enjoy your delicious homemade goodies. I love baked apples.
