Salt craving
1yr
I’ve been craving salt lately. Is this related to not having added sugar? Is anyone else craving salt?? 🤷🏻‍♀️
  • annefood I do not believe that there is a nutritional correlation, but it could be that you’re reaching for salty snacks since sweet ones are off the menu. Or perhaps the heat?
  • shmoozii I think you’re right. It’s a little weird is all.
  • garv Not weird at all . Salt does provide satiation.
Does anyone snack on squash and sweet potatoes? What’s a good way to prepare those for snacking or meals on the go?

  • annefood Hey @ScountMQ ! Great question about two delicious foods! Squash: my favorite way is to peel and deseed it, cut it into small cubes, and spread it on a baking sheet. Toss it with olive oil, sea...
  • garv @annefood love your ideas. Pls cook for me the next time I’m visiting! @ScountMQ I make sweet potato , sesame & chilli kibbehs. Great as a snack or to up the nutrition factor to your meal.

Well, before I use a pass...I made a chicken/ veggie soup on Tuesday with grilled chicken leftover from Monday night ...It is still in the pot in the fridge but I am a little concern to eat it. Is ...
  • annefood Hey @Reb1 - leftover chicken (if properly stored and refrigerated) should be safe to eat for 3 or 4 days, so you should be fine finishing those leftovers tonight. Bring the soup to a boil for a few...

Learned new trick from my trainer! Add fruit in your 64 oz of water - get extra fruit serving in! Eat and replace the fruit though!

  • annefood Yes! This is one of our favorite ways to not only get extra fruit, but also avoid drinking beverages with added sugar- the fruit naturally sweetens the water! 👍🏼
Kudos to Panera for having drinks that don’t have any added sugar, and labeling them!
