Not only pregnant women have cravings. Surely you have noticed that there are days when you can not go without eating chocolate or you really want an ice cream, because all this has an explanation. Your body is wise and knows the reasons why you need these things
See below what it means:
It is a food that produces endorphins, hormones that increase happiness and relaxation.
What this craving reveals is the lack of magnesium, a mineral that provides energy and dilates blood vessels for better circulation.
Consume a serving of dark chocolate without sugar or milk. Alternative sources of magnesium are: nuts and seeds, legumes, bananas, and avocados.
When your body succumbs to a piece of sweet bread, what it really needs is amino acids, which are organic compounds to form protein.
Avoid bread and better eat nuts, quinoa, fish and eggs.
When you crave a cup of sugar coffee, your body asks for caffeine and the energy of sweetness.
Try drinking a cup of green tea or a fruit and vegetable smoothie instead of coffee.
With this craving, your body asks for glucose to help you get the energy you need to perform its functions.
Instead of choosing cookies or cakes, eat fruit; It contains fructose, antioxidants, and other nutrients that make it a snack that satisfies sweet cravings.
5. Fried food
Fried food cravings reveal that you need fats, but healthy ones, so it's time for you to eat avocados and seeds.
If you crave a cocktail, what your body really wants are minerals like potassium and calcium, which are normally found in mixing drinks like juices.
The next time you crave something, do not leave it to oblivion and better learn to choose foods that help you maintain healthy habits.
