I crave carbs like pasta and rice, deeply.
Even thought I’ve haven’t eaten wheat since 2007, I still love rice and bean-based pastas
I typically make a whole pound, and eat it by myself, in very short order.
It makes me feel bloated every time, but I do it any way.
If there is any left-over after the first ten minutes, sometimes I’ll pack it up and put it into the fridge for later.
Then, without fail, twenty to thirty minutes later, I go back and polish the left-overs off.
So, what’s the deal with this? Why can’t I stop eating ridiculous portions of pasta or rice, even when I am a Health Coach, who is keenly aware of the issue?
Every craving has a reason, a connection underneath it.
It’s not about the food itself.
I remember when I was young, I used to eat lots of pasta at the dinner table with my family.
In fact, there is a mental picture that pops into my head today, while I am eating pasta, of my younger self at that time.
A time when I was genuinely happy.
There it is.
I don’t crave pasta. I crave happiness.
