Default Weird cravings (non-pregnancy)

That thread got me thinking...

I have random cravings sometimes. No, I'm not pregnant. It will be one thing for months and then the cravings will go away. It's always something really weird though. A couple years ago I craved radishes. Right now it's been sweet potatoes. The weird thing to me is that prior to having cravings for these two things, I really disliked them both.

What in the world is that a about?

Sometimes I get SERIOUS cravings for those sliced green olives in a jar...I will eat spoonfuls of them and then not touch them for months.

I've been craving sweet potatoes, but in a very particular way. The sushi man down the street makes a maki roll with deep fried sweet potato, it's the only time I've ever really loved them. Ugh, so good.

I don't get weird cravings, but I do just plain eat weird things.

For about the last 4-5 days mine has been donuts filled with lemon jelly (which I haven't been able to find) or cheese with honey mustard (which I have been eating). LoL.

I've been on such an orange juice kick for the last couple of weeks. Like a couple of half-gallons a week. I don't dislike it, but I certainly never bought it or craved it before.

I could eat sweet potatoes every meal and be happy right now (I don't obviously, but it's that bad)

Mostly broccoli right now. Beef and broccoli, fresh broccoli and ranch. Ect. I tend to think cravings are your bodys way of telling you you're missing something.

In red, I agree wholeheartedly.

Somedays I crave milk (which I hate drinking by itself, so I put a ton of it in my coffee), or a VERY VERY weird one I have been craving for the last 4 or so days is water. I hate water. It is so plain and blah to me, but by golly doodle I am drinking it like the wells are running dry lol

Agreed. My cravings aren't necessarily weird but are weird for me. I am not a chocolate lover by any means. But yet atleast once a month I crave it and it has to be those microwavable brownies with the caramel. I also am not a big red meat person, and yet every now and then I crave a bit fat med rare steak. It happens about every 3 to months. I figure my body is telling me I need some iron or something that is only in steak. Water is another one I will crave every now and then. Most times my water is flavored, sometimes though I just need it plain.
