Haha that’s interesting @GTIPuG !
I don’t know how / why my cravings have changed but it’s a good thing for me personally, as I have battled with unhealthy cravings for years and now it takes no willpower whatsoever, I just don’t want to eat those kinda sugary snacks anymore.
My personal theory is that I was lacking in some nutrient previously that I am now getting from Huel. Cravings for one thing can sometimes be mistaken for something else (e.g. Maybe we need protein but think we are craving chocolate but that chocolate craving can’t be satiated no matter how much I eat)
As for craving fresh stuff, my personal theory is one of ‘life-force’… that there is a life-force within every growing living thing, and if we pluck a carrot straight from the earth, we consume all of the life-energy of that carrot. That energy slowly dies the longer it has been out of the ground. (I’m not talking about nutrients here, I’m talking about ‘something else’).
Haha now you are gonna tell me I really need to see a psychologist lol.
I’ve studied human and molecular biology and not come across this theory in any texts recently. But I did watch a BBC documentary years ago that suggested something similar to this. And lots of spiritual belief systems have similar theories. I’ve got to rush out now, but I’ll see if I can find a link to someone else (who can articulate it better than me!) who talks of this theory.
In the meantime you can laugh at me I don’t mind
