    There’s this kosher gluten free online bakery that’s so very delicious!!!

    I find myself craving gluten free challah, cookies, and hamentaschen at least once a week. Do you think that I would stop craving these bakery treats if I ate them more often? Or is it the carbs and sugar singing to me like sirens?

    Do you crave challah and yummy treats during the week, especially if you don’t eat them during Shabbos?

    Thank you thank you 🙂

    My personal experience is if you cut out a food group it takes six weeks for cravings to stop.
    Good luck.

    Thus, cravings can be satisfied by visiting the coffee room:)
    or by offering them as a korban to Hashem to achieve closeness.

    My personal experience is that the more I attempt to satisfy my cravings, the more I crave.
    I just keep away from sugar and white flour so no more cravings, just minor temptations.

    Lightbright:
    Key question is why are you avoiding gluten (celiac or something else) in the first place? If it’s not celiac, you may have luck with spelt vs. regular wheat, so it may be worth a try, especially for Challah (to start with, as it has no other ingredients besides water, whole spelt Matzah is even better). Many packaged gluten free treats are loaded with sugar, potato, rice, and other fillers that are not exactly healthy AND are expensive to boot.

    Cravings may be legitimate if you are severely restricting carbs and you’re not diabetic, so it may be wise to listen to them, but don’t jump from from the frying pan into the fire. A good test would be to bake stuff yourself, which will limit the amounts and ensure you’re craving it enough to put in the time and effort. (One fairly simple recipe you can find many variations of online using basic ingredients is for “chick-pea chocolate chip cookies”.) Good luck!

    You know what would stop you from craving gluten-free stuff? Stuff with gluten.

    Compare them side-by-side and you’ll never go back to gluten free.
