Combating cravings

When you want something on the list what do you eat/do to fulfill the need?

Crunchy, like the crunch of chips:

I've got no ideas on this one. I've tried to dehydrate chips and crackers, but they just don't seem to have that crispness factor.

Sweet (that's the easiest for me):

I'm a fruit fan, so that usually satisfies, but dates are an easy solution, too

Bread:

Ok, so this is a toughie for me. I like the texture of bread. I love bagels. I have no idea how to combat this craving!! Any ideas?

Salty:

Well, for me, salt. usually on a tomato or avocado. But I've never been a big fan (tastewise) of salt, anyhow.

Creamy:

Ok, my Blend-tec will make short work of any nut and transform it into a creamy texture.

Satuee:

I put a mix of veggies along with a bit of salt and oil into a closed zip-lock baggie and dehydrate for several hours. This makes them nice and warm and soft.

Meaty:

This one's not a problem for me, because I've been a vegetarian for so long. I just don't crave it.

Ok, I'm sure I'm leaving some out, so feel free to respond to what satisfies you of the categories above and add your own and your solution.

  • For crunchy I toss very thinly sliced sweet potatoes in olive oil and sea salt and dehydrate for twelve hours. They get crunchy, they're salty and they taste amazing

  • kale chips totally satisfy my chip craving, as for the bread I have to detox out that craving nothing healthy fills the gluten gooey bread craving that I have found. Mushrooms can fill meat cravings. Dehydrated in a marinade they taste just like meat (sometimes too meaty for me but not my hubby from Montana)

    mmm...sweet potatoe
