    What nutrient am I craving?

    Two weeks ago I bought a head of cabbage. Nibbled at it like a rabbit until it was gone.
    Last week I bought a head of cauliflower. I have no idea why. Not a huge cauliflower fan. Made soup.
    This week I bought a head of red cabbage. Don't know why. Have no plans for it, just wanted it. It looked good.
    My default vegetable from the freezer has been broccoli. Odd--usually it's the last thing to go (often it goes in the garbage, freezer-burned.)

    These are all related vegetables. So--what nutrient is it I'm craving?

    If you made all that 3 days in a row, I might say you're craving something specific. As it is, this is over two/three weeks? Might just be those veggies are in season and visually appealing.

    I live alone. That's a heck of a lot of crucifers--at least for me. Maybe it's normal and I just didn't know it?

    I think it's a normal amount. I live alone too. =)

    According to this, maybe chromium, sulfur, calcium?

    I love crucifers, so think its totally normal too. Have you just changed your diet damatically in some way? That could explain why you're craving them a lot now and were not before...
