I have always been a junk food junkie.
Since as long as I can remember, I have loved snacks. Little Debbie. Cheese Doodles. You name it.
And if the package makes an annoyingly loud sound (which we know is the WORST)? Gimme!
And every year, I choose a new snack to covet: the year we filmed The Rhythm in Blue, it was those little caramels with the cream filling.
Then it was Baked Lays.
Then it was Raisenettes.
Then it was fruit snacks.
Now, it’s Chex Mix. Cheddar. It has to be Cheddar.
It is very rare that you see me eating a full meal but I will snack all day long! Ask about me! Appetizers are my jam. Cheese and crackers? Yes, please.
Don’t get me wrong, snacks are not bad if you are eating a balanced diet (unlike me). But if you are
ONLY eating snacks, or if snacks make up most of your day’s food like me, it’s a problem.
Day 1 of Made to Crave reminds us that cravings are created by God. He WANTS us to crave.
But God wants our cravings satisfied by HIM. Not the world. And certainly not by Cheddar Chex Mix.
How can we start to look at the little things we turn to for comfort throughout the day?
When we are stressed, what do we do? If you are me, I reach for the Chex mix! Now that I know this, I can think of healthier alternatives.
Do you have a daily “coping” habit you need to re-evaluate?
