Eat This if You Crave That

From nicotine to chocolate binges, here are some foods you can eat to avoid these cravings:

If you're trying to quit smoking but can't take the cravings, your body may be needing a silicon fill-up!

Curb the carbs and reach for nuts and seeds.

Get to the root of pre-menstrual cravings with root vegetables such as beets, parsnips, fennel and jicama. Root vegetables can help your body replenish zinc.

If you crave chocolate, it is your body asking for more magnesium. Combat this craving by chopping up some raw nuts, berries and a little bit of organic dark chocolate, which is high in flavonoids.

If it's chips or other salty foods, it's because of their chloride. Mix up some mackerel or sardines with olives and tomatoes.

If you crave soda, you could be calcium deficient! Instead, make a salad with high-calcium watercress greens, bok choy, mozzarella cheese and sesame seeds.

If you just cannot pass on the bread, your body could be asking for nitrogen. Opt for surf and turf instead. Yes, both fish and red meat such as salmon and steak are high in nitrogen.
