Sorry for the late lunch post! Time seemed to be slipping away from me this afternoon.
I wasn’t too hungry for lunch but I was having a serious cereal craving. I was baking some halloween cupcakes for Hans’ office and I knew that if I didn’t satisfy the craving, then I would be stealing tastes of the cupcake batter all afternoon long. So, what to do.. what to do? A high fiber, all natural cereal is not a bad thing to consume regularly in a healthy diet BUT I designed my crap free week to try to get rid of my cravings for cereal. Before cfw, I had been having cereal for lunch and dinner, too many times to count. Good news!! I found a crap free way to satisfy my cereal craving with no damage so to speak. I had 1 container of 0% honey greek yogurt, 1/2 banana, 1 tsp almond butter and a sprinkle of trail mix. Cereal craving gone and luckily, there was no licks from the halloween cupcake bowl 🙂 *Photos of the cute cupcakes to come later*
How do you deal with crazy cravings? Do you… 1. kick them to the curb 2. give in to them or 3. modify the craving to suit your healthy lifestyle. I am all 3. Sometimes the craving will go away with some herbal tea but sometimes I just need the real thing!
