100% pure squeezed sunshine*

Every now and then I get the most intense craving for orange juice. I’ve never done any sort of “scientific” observation to see if there’s a pattern or a trigger, but when it hits I cannot ignore it; I am completely in its thrall, and everything else must be set aside until the craving has been satisfied. I can guzzle nearly a quart in one sitting, if it’s a really powerful craving (and I have enough OJ on hand).

I don’t generally get these cravings with other foods – sure, I indulge in chocolate at certain times of the month, and stress and frustration make me want to run to the nearest ABC store and stock up – but not even when I was pregnant did I get cravings like I do for orange juice. It’s just one of those weird things.

(Also, the juice has to be pulp-free. I do not like encountering orange bits in my juice!)

    I agree there is something special about drinking that pure energy and natural sugar.

    Good luck on your Post a Week goal for the year.
