Right now I am addicted to peanut butter on celery. Every day when I get home from work, I have to have a couple of pieces of celery with peanut butter. I don't why I am addicted to this. Maybe my body is lacking some type of nutrients. I wish this addiction would just go away, too much fat in peanut butter, eventhough I just heard that it has the good fat (is there such a thing).

ohhhhh you mean FOOD - I thought you meant this board! :)

I get addicted to certain foods 'seasonally' only because they're at their best or only available during certain seasons or holidays. Taffy apples, pomegranites, Peeps (only at Easter):), fresh fall apples, vine ripe tomatoes, etc.

More the question is ... are you truly hungry at those times? or are you grabbing something to eat out of habit?

At the beginning of the month, I had to have Ritz crackers, peanut butter and cream cheese. Talk about calories....thank goodness my Dodger was right there drooling to help eat all that she could. LOL. I do think it has something to do with needing something from a food group...but it could also be something that just tastes really good and we want more.

I call them cravings as they don't seem to last long enough to be an addiction: half sour pickles, gingersnaps, once it was Taco Bell tostadas?! They usually don't last very long for me. I figured they were a nutritional deficiency too.

Right now I'm on a salsa sour cream and tortilla chips kick, previously it was Jalopeno cheese and rosemary wheat thins, Oh and lets not forget the baked beens and cottage cheese mixed together I had that for about a month straight. Garlic bread and salad kick for awhile too. Now I dont want any of those just the salsa mixture.....I blame hormones!

I normally do the fresh tomato addiction also, but this year our tomatos didnt do well, maybe that explains my salsa addiction right now?

Oh gosh yes!
Right now I've been craving mashed instant potatoes and saltine crackers together. I ran out of crackers the other day and I think I'm about to die. LOL!

You all can't be expecting, can you?
