It doesn’t matter how many green smoothies you drink. If your feeling sad, then gluggy green slush just ain’t gonna cut it.
But are your cravings emotional or nutritional? And how can you tell?
Here’s 3 ways to find out…
You can eat organic kale leaves until the cows come home.
You can drink fat free, gluten free, dairy free, taste free green tea from morning ’till night.
But if you’re eating for any reason other than physical hunger, no amount of food will every be enough.
So should you eat the chocolate? Yes or No? Are your cravings emotional or nutritional? And is the whole thing just a myth anyway?
Here’s how you can tell…

You can pretty much be assured, sweet cravings are NEVER nutritional. A craving for sweets represents a craving for sweetness in your life. Bust out the frozen berries. Add some banana nice cream (OMG! It’s so good, I’m quite sure it’s sinful) and nut butter for a creamy dessert. Those berries and creamy sinful banana will satisfy your sweet tooth, and the nut butter adds healthy fats and protein (that’s right. Not all fats need to be sucked off your body with lipo. Some fats are your friend).
Got stress? Eat chips. That’s the correct response, right? Thankfully these days I have a fancy (and much healthier) new weapon… kale chips! Leafy greens are not just for rabbits. They also provide you with the manganese (hence the cravings, uh… duh!) you may be lacking and they taste great too! Kale chips are super easy to make. Simply rinse and dry fresh kale leaves (or if you’re lazy like me, skip the rinsing and drying part), brush them with a little olive oil and top with shredded parmesan cheese or your choice of spices. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes at 180 degrees (160 degrees fan forced) and then look at them for 15 minutes before eating. Nah, just kidding… devour immediately.
I know this sounds weird but, those uncontrollable cravings for bread roll may actually mean you’re in need of some protein. How can you tell? Check it out! Try adding some fish, eggs or chicken/beef raised in a happy pasture to your next meal. I even snack on a small plate of oven roasted beans or nuts to curb those cunning cracker cravings! (try saying that 3 times fast!)
