Default Why am I craving bloody Mary mix?

I can't get enough of this stuff. It's become a challenge to limit myself to 2 glasses a day. I don't put any alcohol in it. I'm just really enjoying the mix. What is in it that is making me crave it? Geez!

Could it be the salt?
I don't particularly like the mix, but I do love Clamato juice. I'll doctor it up just like it was a bloody Mary without the vodka and it is sooooo good!

I don't think I'm craving salt. I'll have to try the Clamato. I'll check and see if they have small individual cans.

They come in all sizes, but not cans. Wide mouth bottles--you usually find them where the regular fruit and veggie juices are in the grocery store.

Not salt as in salty, but salt as in potassium, sodium, etc. Vegetable juice drinks are great that way! If you have increased your water intake and are exercising, it's easy to run low on these important salts, which are also called "electrolytes."

V-8 juice is really good for this type of craving, too! I use it if I am getting leg cramps at night--a small can an hour or so before bed takes care of the problem.
