Food for the… #4

It’s so weird, but a craving for a peanut butter sandwich just hit me like a ton of bricks. I wasn’t even looking at food photos (like I usually am), and all of the sudden I just wanted to bite into the simple crust of the bread and taste the thick but smooth peanut butter on my tongue.

Does that ever happen to anyone else? Out of nowhere you know exactly what you want to eat?

It occurs off and on with. Once, just randomly, the idea of a cold glass of almond milk popped into my head. And another time all I wanted was a strawberry Nutri-Grain bar.

I think most would call that intuitive eating signals? Unfortunately for me I crave food that I can’t eat, so they often go unsatisfied. Why can’t I crave fish and zucchini? That would nice, thanks.

So, what do I do instead? I pin, I read, I create (recipes and blog posts). I take a bite of chicken or squash, hoping to squelch the peanut butter sandwich from my mind. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. But at the end of the day, I have a nice list of wonderful links from throughout the week.

Then come Fridays, I get to share them with all of you!

Now, I must get ready for bed as I am absolutely exhausted! This morning I volunteered to help with registration at a DECA event my college was sponsoring. I had to get up about an hour and a half earlier than usual and I can definitely tell. I just had zero energy throughout the entire day.

I am going to try my best to get a lot of rest this weekend, and you should do the same!

P.S. Don’t forget to join in on the Happy Herbivore giveaway before it ends Sunday night.

Happy Friday. πŸ™‚

  1. SO many great links here. I absolutely love Ari’s Menu, she makes some mouth watering recipes. Thank you so much for the shout out. I am SO glad I found you.

  2. Thanks for linking up my tips!

    I always find I get strange cravings for things out of nowhere too. Like ice cream on freezing cold days and stuff like that. You can’t go wrong with a pb sandwich!

    Have a lovely weekend my dear!

  3. I literally almost crashed my internet explorer by clicking on pretty much everything. You’ve made my lunch break amazing! Hehe thanks.
    I LOVE that She’s All That thing – I loved that film. My friends and I would watch it like every week. Freddie Prince Jr…what a hunk.

    • Hahaha. I do that ALL OF THE TIME! Seriously, my internet browser has some 20 tabs open at once on most days. And then if it does crash I basically want to scream and cross my fingers that when it reloads it offers the option to reload those tabs. Thank goodness.

      Freddie Prince Jr. He’s just great. Have you ever seen him in Boys and Girls? I loved that movie too. And him in Scooby Doo with the blond hair. Haha.

  4. I’ll try for extra sleep this weekend, just because you said so πŸ˜‰
    This is a great roundup as always and I’m totally excited to get off work and be able to go through all the links!

    Now if only I had a peanut butter sandwich….

    • I’m glad I found your post and that article because it was so interesting. I’d thought about it a bit before (because I know one friend kind of accused me of having food allergies just to restrict food 😯 ) but your discussion on it was brilliant.

      Haha. Glad you can relate. If only I could eat one without any side effects!

  5. Ouch girl 😦 1.5 hours early??? That’s never fun. I hope you slept well! Can’t wait to check out these articles whilst the monkeys are snoozing. I hate that feeling you talked about at the beginning of this post too haha…I always get it for stuff I don’t have and am unable to go to the store for at the moment πŸ˜› have a great weekend hun!

  6. Definitely going to check out some of these links!

    Loved your intro about the PB sandwich. I crave nut butter 24/7, and there’s no use denying that so I help myself to a spoonful or two usually. Probably not the best habit… but you only live once. (YOLO? first time I’ve used that πŸ™‚ )

    Have a great weekend!

  7. I know what you mean about craving a peanut butter sandwich! That sounds so good right now. You can never go wrong with peanut butter. πŸ˜‰

    Thank you for featuring me in the post. It’s an honor. πŸ™‚
    You included some great reads this week.

  8. So bookmarking this page because it will serve as the PERFECT FILLER if I ever have some free time! πŸ™‚ So much amazingness right here – I want to see my SNACK FOOD horoscope – will it tell me that I am a closet fatty… Good thing I cannot eat snack foods! LOL!
