When the GOOD cravings kick in . . .
You know, every so often, I CRAVE healthy food. Like this weekend, for example. DH and I were camping with a few of our best friends, one of which takes over the cooking for everyone. He is an amazing cook. But what he choses to cook isn't exactly the healthiest of foods. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE his sausage and potatoes, hamburgers, sausage and beans, and so-on. But this weekend, I was actually CRAVING healthier fare - fruit, turkey burgers, salad . . . THAT'S what I wanted to eat. Not so good for me this weekend (although the food, as always, WAS amazing), but it made me realize something. When faced with the prospect of not having a choice in the matter, I CRAVED the healthier things. This tells me something about my body - I want NUTRITIOUS food - not junk (although I did crave a Twix today like you wouldn't believe). I am starting to hear what my body wants and needs and relate to food from that perspective, rather than from the perspective of comfort or boredom. I like this change. I welcome it, and thank God for it. I am ready for it!
