Five on Friday: Food Obsessions

I have a tendency to get obsessed with certain foods, eat them all the time, and then get sick of them. Does anyone else do this, or am I the only crazy one?

What i'm craving right now:

1. Coffee. This is an obvious, no-brainer one. The lack of sleep makes it more of a necessity right now than anything else. Although I am curbing the caffeine a little, by brewing decaf in the afternoon. I have to say, my coffee obsession has only grown with time. I started drinking it when I was 13, at which time I would load it with cream and sugar. Now it's milk only, so I convince myself it's healthy. Antioxidants, right? I just love the taste of coffee, and drink it all morning even after I've gotten a full nights sleep. Although, come to think of it, I don't remember the last time that was...

2. Green Tea. I've gotten in the habit of brewing up some tea at night, which helps to curb the urge to snack. (As an aside, I still haven't eaten anything after dinner since New Years Eve! No more evening snacking.) I've read about so many benefits to green tea, and while I don't know if any of them are true, I like the taste, and look forward to relaxing with a mug of it when the little ones are in bed and the house is calm.

3. Tortilla strips. I put these on my salad for an added crunch...yum!

4. Chobani Champions Greek Yogurt. These are actually made for kids, but I love them too, and they're only 100 calories per cup. Some Greek yogurt is too bitter and thick, but since this is made for kids, it's creamy and fruity. I have one every day.

5. Clementines. We buy our first box of these around Christmas time, and as soon as they're in the house I devour them! I read that one of them has only 50 calories, so it's fine to pop two at a time. They're quick and easy to peel, and are loaded with vitamin C. Stephanie loves them too, I peel is, cut the entire ball in half, peel it apart and she gobbles it right up. I'm sad that the season is ending, which means a box is going to jump in price from $4.99 to $9.99.

Feel free to share your food obsessions, healthy or unhealthy!
