Healthy foods you crave

Ruth Lafler | Dec 28, 2008 11:16 AM

Saturday morning I was in the deli at Whole-Foods type market looking for something to take for lunch. After days of holiday excess, the rich foods I usually love just didn't appeal to me. Then I saw the organic kale salad (chopped raw kale with pumpkin seeds, slivers of red onion, in a sesame vinaigrette). I don't normally like kale. I'm not sure I've ever eaten raw kale. But my body clearly wanted it, because it tasted delicious.

So that started me wondering, what healthy foods do you sometimes crave? I don't mean healthy foods you like okay that you eat because you think you should, I mean healthy foods that you actually *want* to eat. I also mean foods that are intrinsically healthy (like kale) and not foods that have been altered (alternate fats and sweeteners, for example) to make them more healthy. Maybe we can all discover some delicious healthy foods!
