What do you crave???
Wed Oct 31, 2018 3:48 am
  • Not talking about “more money” or “more sex” type stuff.

    I’m talking about food/nutrition.

    I’ve heard it said that people truly only crave 3 things, and all cravings can be linked to those 3 things.

    Salt
    Fat
    Chocolate

    IDK if true but I’m curious.

    What do you crave?

  • Great question, I exercise so much, mainly so that I can keep eating carbs once in awhile and keep the weight off.
    But as far as cravings go: Bread, Pasta, Rice and Chips. All are really hard to stay away from.

  • +1,000. I used to live off that stuff, a minimum of 3 days a week.

    It's the perfect cold weather meal.......and I do crave Pho when I'm hungover as well. Carbs, fat, protein, savory, sweet, it's got it all.

    It is weird what you crave usually depends on what you just ate. Like after dinner I usually crave something sweet, and after eating a bunch of sweet stuff I usually crave something salty.

  • I get cravings for capsaicin in my food. Doesn't generally matter much what I'm eating, odds are it's improved through the introduction of habanero hot sauce or better.

  • I usually crave salty foods. Always have. Love salt, and since I have low blood pressure normally, it's a craving I can normally indulge in a lot.

    Living in the Central Visayas for the past couple of years, I developed a real affinity for a local seaweed salad there called "guso". That stuff is like crack! At least to me. Simple recipe, and available everywhere. Seaweed, diced tomatoes, onions, ginger, and spicy peppers, and sprinkled with vinegar. The salt taste from the sea in the seaweed was just enough to be delicious.

    Man, I miss that stuff now!

  • Pretty much always a mix of sweet and salty or spicy and salty. I live and die by the Sriracha -- it probably goes on about 3/4 of my meals.

    Growing up my best buddy was from Thailand and they owned (and still own) The Thai Restaurant in Wenatchee. I've loved Asian cuisine ever since.

  • Salt. Chips are my crack over any kind of dessert and although I do love dark chocolate, it's the salt I crave most.

    I've cut my carbs and sugars down dramatically (although wine continues to be my muse, my nemesis) for the most part. I don't mind the keto-type of lifestyle but yeah, salt.

  • Gotta go with chips. Doritos and regular lays are my go to chips but I am pretty non-discriminate. I will eat any salty, fried chip.

    Another craving is bacon double cheeseburgers, especially first thing in the morning.

    On the sweet side of things it has to be Reese's Peanut Butter cups.
