Day 1 #sol16 – Cravings

solI’ve been looking for something new to do – it seems like I’m often here, looking for something new to try because I’m feeling “stuck”. I looked at the March’s BlogHer writing lab  and I didn’t really know if it was over all inspiring or interesting to me. I’m quite sure others will love it and run with it! There are some that I might try, but we’ll have to see how the words feel about coming out of my fingers.

Instead, I came across Look at My Happy Rainbow’s most recent post {solsc} Elise #sol16. He’s a former kindergarten teacher who had some of the best posts about his classroom, teaching, and life in general. He’s traded in his teacher job for a different one in a related field, but he still comes up with some gems to share. This post about his friend Elise was one of those lovely gems. I don’t know that mine will be as lovely.

Yesterday I was chatting with BatGirl about a particular craving I was having. It was one that just BOOM came out of nowhere! One second I was sitting there sipping my coffee and the next, I NEEDED to have a Burger King Chicken sandwich with bacon and mayo. I have no idea why it popped into my head, I haven’t had one in years! But there it was yesterday, the craving my mind and tongue wanted.

I didn’t end up getting one because I had a long night ahead of me and didn’t want to deal with the gluten reaction, but it was so very tempting. Had it been a different day? There may have been very different results.

Cravings are a wonky thing for me. There are days I want chocolate which I like it all that much. Other days I must have ketchup on something and I really don’t like ketchup! I know that some are possibly tied to various deficiencies in vital nutrients such as the chocolate craving-magnesium tie or the bread-selenium or amino acids tie. Some may be tied to emotional or mental needs. (a.k.a. comfort foods)

I don’t know that either was the case yesterday. I think the sun was out and I wanted something pleasing on my tongue. Today? I don’t particularly want one. I want a hotdog with relish and mustard instead.

I’d love to hear about what you’re craving today.

If you’d like to join here’s the info. There’s even a post of ideas.

    Welcome to slicing! You’re going to love it!
    Oh cravings. I am laid up recovering from knee surgery and the cravings just hit out of the blue. Of course for things that we don’t have in the house, soda in particular today. 🙂

    Oooo cravings, a favorite topic of mine, and yes they do just come out of nowhere don’t they. Yesterday I ate a bunch of prunes, the most random craving ever.
