On another exciting topic - or it is to me (and Jen B) at least. I had a conversation with my friend Jen via text that went something like this:
me to Jen B: Ran out of frozen cherries for my oatmeal this morning. Have bag of cherry flavored M&M's in pantry. Should be same points value, no?Later that day:
Jen B. to me: Totally the same. Love it
me to Jen B.: Bought real frozen cherries for oatmeal in the morning. So excited. Seriously? Fruit gets me excited? Who the hell* am I?
Jen B. to me: I feel the same way! I heart cantaloupe!* some words were changed to protect the innocent eyes of my readers (clearly it's all about you guys!)
So this either proves that you really can retrain your brain and taste buds to crave things that can be good for you or that Jen B. and I are both a little bit crazy. Or both. In all honesty though I had to make oatmeal with frozen peaches this morning which are as equally delicious but there is something about big frozen cherries, a touch of cinnamon and 1/2 t. of vanilla in my oatmeal that is just so tasty and satisfying to me.
Do you find yourself craving things that you weren't before?
