I Want Mustard



So lately I have been craving mustard.. It's weird because I am 19 and have never, I mean NEVER, liked mustard unless its dijon or honey. But the plain tangy bright yellow stuff is what I'm talking about. Oddly enough I just started putting it on everything from my sandwiches, to snacks, along with pickles, and chips. And no, I'm not pregnant. 

Cravings are your body's way of letting you know you may be deficient in something.
