My first real craving

I'm starting to want junk food again! I knew it would happen in a few days. I had lasagna for dinner and allowed myself a small baked potato with a bit of Earth Balance on it mmmm. And I had a few chocolate chips too. I'm making baked bananas to tide me over. Its just bananas with sugar, a bit of Earth Balance, cinnamon and lemon juice. I'm hoping this dessert satisfies me enough. Its one of the dessert recipes I mentioned from Vegan Cooking for One, so that there are no leftovers to be tempted by. Lets hope this works! I think I'm over the worst of it (I sound like a crack junkie!) but the bananas are already in the oven, so I might as well try it!

OK, they're out of the oven, they look good enough but I just can't get into them. I guess I don't like the taste of baked bananas. Oh well, I tried :) They might have been better with some ice cream but I'm trying to avoid that stuff!

Anyways, I don't think I've ever disliked a dessert so much. Not even the melted chocolate chips could save it! But the good news is I'm over my junk food attack and the worst of it was a baked potato with margarine and a couple tablespoons of chocolate chips! Plus they have iron in them so they're good for you ;)

Do you guys have any tips on how to get past these times?

I love bananaslices with agave nectar. It definately helps me when I want something sweet. I also like smoothies and if I feel like chocolate or coffee I make a moccha with homemade almond milk, a date and carob (can you tell I'm transitioning to raw :P)

How do you get over your junk food cravings? You probably will have to get your period.

Haha, too true. Around that time it is very hard to resist the food!
