This week has been little off per se. Not really mentally, more physically. Let me explain my thought process here. Sit back and hold on tight, k?
I truly believe that God gives us STRONG cravings for a reason. He made our bodies to be very aware of what it NEEDS, yes NEEDS, not wants. Our eyes and nose may see or smell something that we want (fresh baked cookies from the oven, etc.) but a true CRAVING might just be the bodies way of telling us we’re lacking something nutrient wise! Yes, we were made to crave. Thank GOD for that too!
So back to this week. My body showed me sure signs that I still was a little depleted from the heat last weekend. Thirsty like no other, a charlie horse (ouch) in my calf muscle, and craving salt like a mad woman! Yep, total electrolyte imbalance. I decided to let the cravings do the talking and get my fair share of potassium and sodium to even things out.
Spinach/egg/cucumber salad (lots of POTASSIUM there).
And brown rice with smoked paprika and salmon (SODIUM) mixed in.
