And now, even moreso lately, I've been trying to be even better about avoiding certain foods, especially sugar. It's excessive of me, maybe, but I've still been having the angriest cravings for chocolates and sweets, so I thought, maybe if I just cut it out entirely then I'll stop thinking about it altogether. And it's been sort of working... until last night.

I've heard of this before. I've read about people who go on drastic diets having very vivid dreams about certain foods - and sugar is one of the biggest contenders. In any case, this dream was so clear and so lifelike that today, when cookies were delivered to my office, I almost fainted. I was able to fight off the demons of sugar-dreamland and denied myself a cookie or five, but my brain is so tired from having to constantly say no to myself that I'm looking forward to a quiet Saturday in Brooklyn, far away from packaged sweets and deliverable cookies, and closer to kale, peppermint tea, and broccoli.
Has anyone else out there ever had food dreams? What was the recurring one or the one that had the biggest impact? Leave a comment below or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I would love to know I'm not alone in this.
