My personal favorites are shiitake mushrooms. I have a really yummy recipe for a hot and sour soup with shiitake mushrooms and I have a super fresh source at a local Asian market. If I had to guess, I would say that your craving stems from a weak immune system. Mushrooms are a good immune booster (among other things, capsesin-found in jalapenos, lemon, ginger). If you don't mind hot things, you can find the recipe for the soup I mentioned at http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/shiitake-hot-and-sour-soup If you don't, you can probably leave out the jalepenos?
It is my understanding that any craving at any time means that your body needs some vitamin, mineral, or amino acid in that food and that this is your body's way of expressing it. Hence you crave sugar when you sugar levels are low, or you crave citrus when your body needs vitamin c.
I was thinking vitamin D also.
I was thinking vitamin deficiency!
I was always told if you are craving something it is a way for your body to tell you what you need.
