    Two thinks come to mind for me; grapes and cherries. Whether I have a handful or a bucket full I find it hard to make myself stop eating them.:rolleyes:

    Potato chips, that's why I seldom buy them. Bought some yesterday though and already ate them. I also bought a cake pop that I ate too...yesterday was a feed my craving kind of day....I didn't eat dinner though, figured I had enough calories for the day.

    I agree on cherries too though, they are hard to stop until most are gone.

    Pasta! Love it! Changed to Whole Wheat only about a year ago, as suggested by my wife. Something about less Glycemic Spike. Now, she eats NONE at all, and encourages me to, guess what?

    :pI wrote thinks instead of things and when I tried to edit it everything disappeared. I thought it was lost so I reposted.
    Oh well.

    White seedless grapes, which are not bad or unhealthy.
    But popcorn, chips, Doritos, I tend to eat more when I have a bowl/bag so I just get a handful at a time.

    Lately I've developed a craving for McD breakfast sandwiches - especially sausage mcmuffin (without egg). I buy a few and freeze them. Odd because I'm usually not a fan McD.

    I'm with @Sheldon Scott when it comes to fresh cherries. I can eat them until I get a tummy ache. :(

    My grandson, Bobert, has figured out that when he catches me not eating, that a bacon BLT sandwich will work every time. :rolleyes:

    Toast with butter and jam was one of my cravings when I was pregnant with my daughter....I could eat 5-6 pieces at one sitting. No wonder I gained so much with that pregnancy. I was more careful with my second pregnancy and only gained about 20-25 lbs as opposed to the embarrassing 40 with my daughter.

    Also, and this is a new craving...warm crusty bread with butter or dipped in olive oil or any sauce.

    Ate more bread at my son's house and even made an easy loaf of bread with the nanny and the 3 boys during Christmas break.

    It was a simple recipe the nanny found and you put it in a plastic bag to knead and the boys had fun with that...it turned out better than expected but we also made peanut butter cookies at the same time just in case. :)

    I love pasta as well Frank and you might like DREAMFIELDS PASTA which has a very low Glycemic Index and less likely to cause a SPIKE

    Nuts of any kind. Never met a 'Nut' I didn't like!
    I feel it is my mission to finish off any bag or bowl that comes within arm's reach.
    List in order of my favorites:
    Pecan, Pistachio, Macadamia, Almonds, Peanut, Walnut, Brazil, Chestnut and on and on...

    I love nuts too Tim, but we just don't get on :p
    Maybe if I'd never stopped eating them it would have been fine, but there was a gap of years and when
    I tried them well, we just didn't get on :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I like nuts too...at least most are healthy but still high calorie....you can't really eat all you want.

    Think pistachios are my favorite, then cashews....my least favorite are the healthiest ones..almonds. :)

    @Ren Tanner
    That would be a brand name? Have never seen it. Perhaps the healthfood store at our Mall might have it. We walk the Mall when weather does not permit the Riverwalk. I'll look for it.

    @Frank Sanoica , it's in most stores...Safeway has it but I don't think your wife would consider it low carb as in Atkins low carb....it has about 40 some carbs per serving.

    If I'm low carbing, I wouldn't use it.

    On the other hand if it's for you and you just care about the glycemic index....guess it's fine.

    @Chrissy Cross
    I guess I don't understand these things too well yet. If it's rather high in carbs, how can it not affect the Glycemic Index? I started eating only 100% whole wheat pasta about 2 years ago (+ or -), and my measured blood sugar has remained the same as always, in the 90s. My meager understanding is that sugars and carbs digested by way of milled grain causes fast response by pancreas, I think that is considered a spike. Could be all wet. Especially today, CAs next front is sweeping over us here, likely another 1/8" or so. The desert plants in our wash out front have all "greened-up".

    Look it up, @Frank Sanoica ....I wouldn't eat it if I was doing very low carb. If you're not, then it's probably a better choice than regular pasta. Best choice is no pasta. :)

    Yes, California is actually GREEN, we've had a lot of rain and its forecast for most of this week also

    I never feel spikes or anything, I just ate low carb as a way to lose weight. I'm pretty sure Ren isn't eating that pasta because he has to lose weight....it's just a tad healthier..

    I like nuts to Tim. Lately I've been snacking on mixed nuts and dried fruit.
