I get food cravings if I need some nutrient or vitamin- not usually for meat, but definitely for protein sometimes.  You could always talk to your doctor or a nutritionist to make sure you're getting everything you need.  And you might not want to take iron supplements before talking to a doctor (as it turns out, for me personally, taking iron is just about the worst thing I can do for my health).

i've been veg for 10 years and i don't get "meat" cravings so much as "comfort food" cravings.  Since i grew up non-veg, a lot of the things i consider to be 'comfort foods' contain meat.  i love taking those family recipes though and making them with fake meat products.  i do my grandma's meatloaf, my mom's chicken cacciatore . . .pretty much anything can be made w/ meat substitutes!  quorn brand makes a great fake chicken (keep in mind though, i do think it tastes like chicken but i haven't actually had chicken in a decade!) and gardenburger makes really good pork substitutes.

There's a table about halfway down this page with a table of high-iron vegan foods.  Beans are a good source of iron, especially when combined with vitamin C.  I also try and eat iron-fortified cereals at least a couple of times per week.

I find that the smell of it smells good to me, but usually, the smell is something like BBQ sauce or steak sauce that is appetizing to me. Try these sauces and marinades on soy "meat" products. Smiley

Same here.  There's just a few things that I really loved, that had meat in them.
okay, i just reread that and no, I haven't been vegeterian for 10 years, but yes, it's comfort food...like pepperoni.

I seldom have meat cravings, usually just every one or two months.  When I do, I think it's from lack of nutrients like other people said.  Since I'm not going veggie for moral reasons, I just eat meat when I crave it and figure this is part of the process of weaning myself off completely. 

Btw, farina has tons of iron.

Really what you're doing is what I do.  I remind myself how those animals are treated and that craving is gone.  I also remind myself how my parents didn't think i could survive as a veggie, and I find the strength to keep it up, no cheating allowed.

I'm young and not a vegetarian but I realised that one might get cravings because the meat is there. Some people are veggie cause they don't want to kill the animal or whatever, but if the animal is dead and right in front of you, you can't really save it anymore? (correct me if I'm wrong but thats just a thought on the situation)

Human nature, I say.

Also, you could just be craving some protein. Happens to me, too.
