Sometimes, I really crave a salad.

I used to think it was really obnoxious when people said they craved salads. Or that people who ate salads constantly and loved them were obnoxious.

But really, I was so restrictive with my food, that I never craved healthy food. I craved fat and sugar because I wasn’t feeding my body properly. Now that I eat an adequate amount of protein, healthy fats and safe starches, I seriously never crave junk food. I’m naturally drawn to healthy foods and it’s awesome. It’s literally not a problem to say no to candy or cake or cookies. If I want any of these, I make them for myself and I don’t restrict it. But I politely decline the wheat and GMO sugar beet filled desserts, not only because they make me feel like shit, but because I geniunely have no desire to eat them.

So now I crave things like salads with a lot of jalapeno because I’m addicted to spicy food. It burns so good.
