Is there such a thing as a normal craving?

January was a month for weird and unusual cravings. There were none of the usual cravings such as ice cream, donuts, cakes, pizza, cheesecake or any other high-sugar sweets.

What I was hankering for was buttermilk. For two weeks I'd go to the supermarket and look at the carb-count on a cup of buttermilk and it was 13 grams which resulted in the carton going back on the shelf. Noticing that the buttermilk was only available in the 1% fat version also made me frown.

Finally I gave in and bought a liter. I decided to measure out a 1/2 cup buttermilk to 1/2 cup coffee cream and I've been drinking it for 3 days now and the weight is falling off me. Well maybe not falling off but going down.  Don't know if it's the buttermilk or maybe something in it that my body needed.

Could have been worse I suppose.
