Do You Crave Fatty Foods When It Is Cold Outside?

When there is a Winter chill in the air, I crave fat. Milk fat mostly, like cheese and ice cream. The cravings are not limited to just dairy products, duck confit is often top of the list. Corn chips might do in a pinch.

What about you . . .

I crave the fatty food you wouldn't really put into that category (the junk fatty food is what I mean) The Fatty Food I crave during the winter is - fat from fish like salmon, chillean seabass, trout, etc (then again, I like that sort of fat all year around) & from bison bratwursts mixed with purple & green cabbage

I crave foods that are warmer and carb-loaded more often in the winter than anything else. A really healtyh soup really does it for me one day and then the next I want mashed potatoes!

Yes, definitely! Normally, I hate sugar (as an in candy) or carbohydrates (as in fillers like bread, pasta, potatoes). BUT, during the really cold days of winter, I'm eating these things like crazy!!

Yes for some reason I do! But I don't eat them all the time, which is good.

I don't crave fat, but I do crave hot things like soups and tea and coffee. And it's definitely weird for me to want to eat things like ice cream in the winter.

mmm, I've been craving fatty foods this winter. It's pretty much my first one in a cold climate (it's usually in the negatives when I go to work at 8!) and I noticed that I was eating like crap.... It's good to know it's sort of normal, even if it's not healthy. :)

I guess kind of. After Yum posted a story about Stilton bleu cheese and really wanted some to go on my Wasa crisp bread instead of my usually cheddar and PB. So I found some weird cheese that part bleu part cheddar all delicious. I suppose that's as fatty as I've gotten in the recent cold snap. I've been craving ice drinks and non-fat fro-yo more than fatty stuff. And oranges.

ice cream when it's cold??? not at all . . . . . I crave warm things: soups, teas, and especially carbs: things like toasted baguettes.

Ladies! Seems like the solution to our problems is to move somewhere warm and southern! :) My wintertime craving involves a lot of breads--I could live off of Panera soup bowls every day. Throw in a snow day and it's even more trouble--the take out menus start calling my name. Thank god for the recent warm weather in NY's been helping me stay on my usual health food track!
