View Full Version : Orange Juice craving
12-13-2007, 09:26 AM
Yesterday morning and this morning quite unexpectedly I woke up with a huge craving for freshly squeezed orange juice. It was the first thing on my mind and oh so yummy. Usually it's green smoothies or just an apple, but the times they are a changin'. Any other orange juice cravers out there?

Not lately but I have in the past. I was just looking at the lovely Florida oranges in my fridge and thinking I hope I get an OJ craving soon !

When I overeat fats I crave orange juice. Occasionally I'll have a spell where I think I could live off of it forever.

I have been craving oranges so much that I have been using them in my smoothies every day for about 2 or 3 weeks now. When someone is near me and they start to peel an orange that smell really awakens my senses!:)

i had the same craving today (for the biggest glass of fresh-squeeze oj, like a gallon) out of the blue. A CRAVING. i don't usually get the craves, since raw.
maybe after work i'll hit the juice bar and satisfy this strange citrified urge...

It's one of the healthiest strongest cravings I've experienced. Several times I've even woken out of a deep sleep to run and make fresh-squeezed orange juice. I especially love the blood oranges.

As Colonel Klink would say 'veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery interestink'! Hmmmm fresh ginger. I don't like ginger, but I might like it with lemons, oranges and as a gingerale. You have inspired me to try it so it will be my new fun treat.

I love fresh OJ! My craving is apple juice with celery or fresh Grape fruit juice! I find many people wont eat grape fruit but I love it! All kinds! :p

A strange thing happened to me last night that relates to what Trinity was saying. I used to hate grapefruit, but I bought some to use with the liver cleanse. Last night I saw one sitting on the counter and just couldn't help picking it up and eating it. It was delicious! I had never liked grapefruit before going raw.
I also have been craving orange juice. Unfortunately, I don't have a juicer nor do I live near a juice bar. I make all my orange juice by hand with a dinky plastic juicer, the type that just filters out the pulp and seeds when you press an orange on it. Oh well! It just makes me appreciate it all the more.
I probably eat like a pound of citrus a day now!
Eat with the seasons and love it everyone! ;)

Since my SAD binge yesterday, fresh juice is exactly what I want and need today. I plan to make some orange, pineapple juice as soon as I wake up. Also my husband is home today, with a cold, so I hope I can interest him in a glass of juice too.

Yes oddly enough. My version of OJ is to put two whole peeled oranges with water and a few ice cubes in the VM & wizz up!

This thread got me craving fresh orange juice! I drank a quart with dinner last night, and I'm almost finished with a half gallon this morning. It's heaven in a glass!

I think orange juice is a natural craving in the cooler months because they are so plentiful right now, also it seems that the heavier holiday treats, even if Raw tends to cause the need for the OJ. Our bodies sure know whats best. Plus oranges and orange juice is so yummy.
I'm glad my body demands fresh raw foods today. So far my body wanted freshly made in my juicer, pineapple/orange juice. For lunch I just had sliced apples and cucumber slices. Odd combo, but that's what I wanted. Tasted sooo good to me. My Pomeranian also begged for a slice of apple. She loves apple!
