What Healthy Foods are you Craving?

Earlier this week I asked my Twitter followers the following question: What healthy foods are you craving right now?

For me, it was watermelon. Below are some of the responses I received. (Yes, I realize none of the photographs really go with any of the answers, but those are the things I had on hand to photograph...and they are fresh and healthy.)

http://twitter.com/heylovedc avocado! Although now you've got me wanting watermelon too :)

http://twitter.com/umamigirl Love that question. Lobster, oysters, avocado with lemon, sometimes a big salad.


http://twitter.com/MichelleNoVaMag I'm craving a mango.

http://twitter.com/HealthyDelish I would kill for a peach

http://twitter.com/Kay819 I'm with you on the watermelon- I could easily eat a 1/4 of one in one sitting, haha

http://twitter.com/urbanbohemian I could go for some grapes and baby carrots right about now.

http://twitter.com/ElyssaK I often crave sauteed spinach w/garlic. Roasted veggies: esp. brussel sprouts and cauliflower. I love veggies!

Mangoes, raspberries, white nectarines (can't wait for those!), strawberries and ALWAYS anything that has lime in it.

Alphonso mangoes! They are only out for one month a year. I keep checking to see if they've come in, i think today will be the day. Wish me luck.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Anything with fruit would do it for me! I love all fruit and cannot resist but this time of year strawberries are a clear winner. Cheese is another favorite.

Agree with a lot of these--avocado, citrus. Greek yogurt w/cereal. Huge glass of iced water with half a lemon squeezed in it. Homemade trail mix. Yogurt covered raisins from TJ (the health factor is questionable her, I admit).

Usually I can tell I havent been eating very well when all I can think about is a giant salad. Or whole grains- brown rice wheat berries, quinoa. I never crave chocolate. I know - I'm weird. Always fruit and nuts when I want something sweet. or granola!
