For me, it was all about filling up on other things instead of denying myself something. The denial just makes me think about it all the time. But if, when I'm dying for a brownie, I eat an apple and drink a glass of water FIRST, never telling myself that I can't have the brownie, I'm just going to eat the other first. But then often I feel basically fully and can't be bothered to eat anything else. And if I still want the brownie, brownie it is. Certainly my homemade food is easier on my body than the processed stuff, too. I'll be making peanut butter cookies this evening - too much sugar to eat with abandon, but a good source of protein and fiber, too, and all without trans fats.

I first look at what it is I am craving and try to have something healthy that might have the thing in there I need. If I am craving candy, I have fruit. If it is fatty food I have some nut butter or make some veggies with coconut oil. If it is salty, homemade pickles made with sea salt. If it is fried, I make something fried from scratch. That being said, I do still have my moments that I give in to that craving. I think we all do!

For me the longer I am off of them the less I want them. Oh don't get me wrong I still have my favorites and they will probably always be my favorites but I eat them occasionally -as a treat. I am so used to a bowl of oatmeal every morning that I can't eat a bowl of sweetened cereal anymore. My taste buds just can't take it.

It took me awhile to get there but it will happen once your taste's adjust!

I have a hard time resisting bad food choices everyday. I find it helpful to have homemade healthy snacks ready to grab from the pantry /refrigerator when I need them. I like to "healthy up" typically bad food choices and revamp recipes so they're no longer bad, they're even good for me. This way, I get my fix, but I know what I am putting into my body and sometimes it's even so healthy, I can now eat it as often as I like, not just as a treat. More often than not, I end up preferring the made over version to the original. I wish I had more time to devote to it, but I have an 8 month old, so sometimes I am in the kitchen less often than I would like.
What types of crap emoticon are you craving?

So for years I have eaten processed quick foods, I am more educated now on what these foods have done to my body, Yet there is something sill making me crave them ( I know its all the crap that is in the foods that my body is craving) I am hoping this group will have some good tips/swaps to make my transition a little easier as I want me and my family to go off processed foods with in the year and eat whole foods!
