I'm In The Mood For....
...pretzels, simply because...I don't know! How silly is that? Where do cravings come from? I'm more of a salt person than a sweet person, but I have had to ban really salty things from the cottage -- crackers, potato chips, Triscuits, Wheat Thins, Cheetos, Fritos, Doritos (say, why are they all "os"?), anything that's crunchy and salty because I have no off switch. I can sit down with a bag of, oh, say, Roast Beef and Horseradish potato chips (yes, there is such manna from heaven!) and eat the whole darn bag. And though it tastes so stupidly good whilst crunching and munching, about 20 minutes later, I'm cursing myself for being such a fool. And I can feel my body yelling at me. Everything in moderation, right? Except when you don't have the strength to moderate. I wonder why some folks crave the sweet while others crave the salt. I've always been the salt. And why is it that the things we crave are so bad for us? So I'll confess -- I made a pretzel run today because I couldn't stop thinking about them! Pretzels! Seriously? Silly. But I caved. And you know what? I'm okay with it! Sometimes you just gotta let yourself go, right?
Whatever you might be craving today, perhaps you can cut yourself some slack and just have one...or two. And enjoy it without guilt or shame :-)
