One of the strangest cravings women are reported to experience is the desire to eat dirt. Although this is also considered a sign that she is suffering from the eating disorder called Pica.

Pica sufferers often have an appetite for non-nutritive substances such as paint, drywall, ice and soil. It has been suggested that sufferers are deficient in a mineral their chosen substance contains.

Pickle and peanut butter is a pairing I can recommend. I can’t say the same for a soil pit.
