It will tell you how to eat right.

We've all heard this schlock and if it was true would we have 200 million obese people in the USA?

My body said: Nachos for breakfast.

What odd things has your body told you to eat for breakfast?

nachos: complex carbohydrates (corn), protein (refried beans), dairy (shredded cheese), veggies (salsa)

Peeled Poblanos with pulled pork and cream cheese in one, and chili and cheddar in the other.

I kind of believe there is some truth to that but no proof but haven't researched it yet either. But I do believe you body learns that certain foods you eat fulfill certain requirements and when your body is low on certain things your brain sends out a craving for that food. Every once in a while I have an extreme craving for milk. Could my body need calcium? Who knows, just a crazy thought of mine.

When I was in JHS I used to eat peas mixed with mashed potatoes and butter for breakfast before school.

Yah, I'd agree there is some small validity. I've always craved red meat and it turns out my body has trouble absorbing iron from any other source.

cold bologna straight out of the pack this morning... I believe the craving of non-food items (like bologna) is called pica.

I honestly believe my body is telling me when I need certain things. Like if we eat a lot of chicken and other meat at home after a couple weeks or so I'll really be jonesing for a steak.
