When you crave certain foods its a sign either your missing a important type of food often in your diet or that you have a medical reason behind it.
For example if you just ate but are still hungry or even have dry mouth then try a large glass of water.
Here are a few common cravings to help you take the first steps to finding the cause. I do recommend changing one thing at a time for a 5-7 days if you truly want to find the cause. But honestly all these foods are great to eat daily anyways.
IM CRAVING SWEETS:
Try adding any of these healthy foods: broccoli, grapes, cheese, dried beans, chicken, fresh fruits, beef, poultry, fish, eggs, daily, eggs, nuts, kale, cabbage, turkey, sweet potatoes and spinach.
