    Default Craving Bananas

    I've had the wildest craving for bananas and grapefruits lately. I know these foods are high in potassium and that maybe I have a potassium shortage in my body but is that the only reason? I take a multi and I eat a balanced diet so I don't see how I could be so deficient in that mineral that I'm ready to eat a whole banana tree.

    Any thoughts?

    Bananas are yummy?

    You could need the potassium if you're sweating more... Or you could come out here, where spring hasn't been invented yet.

    I'm like a monkey, I can go through a whole thing of bananas in one sitting. I constantly have a craving for bananas but I never have a shortage of potassium

    Maybe it's just because they taste good...? I eat them all the time.

    Have you tried peeling and freezing them? They make an awesome Popsicle!! Just cut them in half and put a stick on the end before doing so.

    Maybe you are prego...lol
    I've been on a banana binge too lately. I freeze them and then put them in my protein shakes instead of ice. It gives them a rich flavor.
    Insist upon yourself. Be original

    That's a great idea!! And the bananas don't go bad before you can use them too!
