What Are Your Cravings Telling You?

Food Cravings Chart

I'm just dropping by quickly with a word about cravings.

You know the score - the season changes and our bodies start to crave certain foods and food groups: stodgy carb and sugar laden stuff that fills you up and cheers you up. But, as comforting as it is to gorge on bread, pasta and chocolate the end result is not a good one.

To help you eat the right things when you get a craving I thought I'd share this extremely useful chart from - an at a glance guide to what your cravings are telling you your body needs and what your should eat instead of those quick fix foods.
