What do the food that you're craving say about you and why?  


Craving beans - need protein

Craving cabbage or horseradish - need detox/liver issues

Craving spinach - low iron

Crunching ice - low iron


What are you craving?  What does it mean?

mmmm....I don't crave any of those things.  About the only cravings I get are for ham, cheese, or chocolate...and those are rare.

 Chocolate contains cannabinoids which  trigger anandamide which gives you high of happiness and well-being.

You often crave cheese when your body is in desperate need of calories.  

I'm not real sure on the ham.  I'm thinking you want the sodium?  Maybe the fat or a combo of the two?  Sodium usually indicated a mineral deficiency.  


That said, sometimes it's all hockeywash and we're just craving something for comfort or boredom!

Isn't it weird that you'd crave ice for an iron deficiency?

Interesting. What if you are craving chocolate, lol

Generally they say that a chocolate craving indicates that your body is low in magnesium.  Other great forms of magnesium include  nuts, seeds, fish, and leafy greens.  

Chocolate is also a comfort food and many like the "feel good" effect you get when eating it.  

Regardless of the reason, choose a high quality dark chocolate in limited quantities for heart healthy benefits!
