As I stood in the grocery store...all I could think of was an avacado! I've only had two of them my whole life. I really liked the first and then didn't like the second. But today...I had to have an avacado. :o Do you do this? Do you ever crave something different...something specific? Like sometimes I crave crunchy or sweet...but this was really specific! I wanted an avacado! :D So, I got one...and I'm waiting until tomorrow for lunch. It will be even softer and I'm totally looking forward to it! :p

That exact thing happened to me many years before going raw. I was on a fast to raise money for charity and all I wanted was an avocado. I had probably only had one before that but that was all I wanted.
I concluded that it was because my body recognised that there is so much nutrition in the avocado and it wanted to get as much as possible. Have you reduced your food intake because this could explane it.

That happened to me today, in fact, with napa cabbage. I have never prepared this stuff at home before, although I have had it in restaurants, but not recently. . . anyhow, I woke up today and suddenly I knew I had to have some. I made an Indonesian salad with mung bean sprouts and a spicy almond dressing. It was delicious, but weird to have a craving like that.

Actually, I just made the move from 80-90% raw to 100% two days ago! ;) So, no more dairy. All I know is that it is all I can do to wait for lunch tomorrow.
It sounds so silly, but I want to savor it...and if I have it tonight...the kids are home...the rush, cleaning...getting ready for bed...it won't be the same. However, when they are at school...I'm going to sit on my couch, in the early afternoon sun...and savor every last bite! LOL :D So, I'm patiently waiting for my avocado! :p

Happened to me today. I wanted butter lettuce to go with my avocado so I went all over town looking for it. Didn't find it. I'd only had it once. It was great. No other lettuce would do.

That actually happened to me earlier this week. From the time I woke up to the time I went to bed, I wanted a mushroom stuffed with tomatoes and peppers and fennel. I've never had ANY of those. But I wanted one so badly...

Last fall, when I was RAW for the first time, I craved watermelon! NOW, you have to know, that I HAVE NEVER LIKED WATERMELON MY WHOLE LIFE.....and I've tried it many times because it smells so good, but never liked the taste!!! When I finally broke down and bought one, I ate half of the quarter piece that we bought, all by myself!!!! Hows that for craving something..... :D

Oh yeah! Had it with avocadoes as well, never liked them, then I bought because I wanted to make guacamole, then I ate the other one (you buy two at a time here if they are organic) because I craved it so badly, have been craving them more or less ever since! Also craved mushrooms, didn't like them either, before raw that is.. It's amusing!
