This lifestyle can seem restrictive. Getting over certain food cravings and / or addictions can be a challenge.
It seems people miss things like cheese, chocolate, crunchy things, salty things, flour things, ice cream, coffee, sugar, creamer, milk etc. Just the mention of the food item, a thought or a picture of it, can set off consuming thoughts and longing.
For some, things like celery and carrots can satisfy the crunchy food desire. There are some great recipes in the recipe page for crunchy, seasoned chickpeas and also for 4 Seed Crackers. You can also make potato chips in the microwave.
Air popped popcorn is also an option. Remember that even plain, air popped popcorn is about 1600 a pound. It is calorie dense. If you season it, you may eat even more than you intended.
One transition food is Mary’s Gone Crackers Superseed Crackers. These crackers are delicious. Of course, if weight loss is your goal, you may want to limit or not consider these crackers. You could easily binge on these crackers and gain weight (even if you are 100% compliant in all other areas of your eating!). (*Note: Other products by Mary’s Gone Crackers may be higher in salt and fat).
Next time, we will deal with salty things.
