I have been eating a lot of fresh fruit and veggies lately from a local farmstand, plus I buy dark greens like spinach and kale to add to the nutrition. I find that when I eat healthier like this my cravings for foods like cake and ice cream go way down. I agree though, if you have a craving for something that is not so healthy you should get a good dose of it and then stop. The other week I craved some cake so I ate a good amount of it and now I don't crave it at all.
Yesterday I had half of a peanut butter sandwich, a piece of homemade zucchini bread, a banana, some peaches, a tomato sandwich, and two ears of fresh corn.
This morning I started with a tomato sandwich. I am hooked because the fresh tomatoes from the farm are so darn good! I also had some blueberries and a cup of tea.
Later I will be sauteing up some garlic with olive oil, then adding kale to wilt down with some salt and pepper and a few hot pepper flakes. I will squeeze some fresh lemon on it before eating. I will either have cannelini beans or chicken with it for some protein.
