Question What does this mean?

Anyone have any idea why I would be crazing raw tomatoes? I figure it's something related to OJ too because I've had a drastic increase in craving for both of those things, but more so tomatoes, since it's gotten really cold. I'm a few days into my period, so I'm not pregnant, but this craving has been pretty constant for a few weeks now.

Let's assume it's NOT a craving for Vit. C.

Both of those things are pretty acidic.. maybe your body's telling you you're off balance? I'd try some cranberry caps, less sugar.

What do you mean by off balance, just out of curiosity?

Oh, I tend to have a very acidic PH, at least I did last time I tested regularly.

Like maybe you were too alkaline? I don't know enough about body chemistry to tell you what to do with that, you asked and I was speculating maybe it was the acidic nature of those two things.

I crave tomato sauces/products constantly (don't actually care for raw tomatoes). And orange juice is my favorite drink (but I limit OJ because it gives me cold sores if I drink too much or without a straw). Same with delicious oranges, yum! Had these cravings for years. I've never figured out why, but I have wondered if it is because my body doesn't absorb folate.
