Cravings: Red Color = Red Meat

Do you get cravings? Come on, you know you do. Sure, you Eat to Live 99.99% of the time, but, every once and a while—YOU NEED A FIX! For me, it’s chocolate. What about you? Maybe its red meat like this member of, if so, give Dr. Fuhrman’s suggestion a whirl:
Member: I am almost done with week 4 of the 6 week plan, and have had virtually no cravings since day one. This transition has been shockingly easy for me. However, out of nowhere, I am having some pretty overwhelming cravings for red meat. Is there anything you suggest?

Dr. Fuhrman: Cook up a bean/oatmeal patty and use lots of shredded beets to make it red. Sunflower seeds are helpful too.
Maybe I could use lentils to simulate chocolate, they’re brown.

Sorry - lentils are no substitute for chocolate!

I'm on week 6 and doing well. I plan on doing at least another 6 weeks before I even think about a little chocolate. But when I do, it'll definitely be some lovely organic 70% cacao dark chocolate. I gotta have it sometimes!

I will soon! I just have to buy some cocoa.
