View Full Version : When your body "discovers" a new food...

I was wondering, sometimes when I try a new fruit or vegetable and all I can think about is getting more and more of it, do you think that it is because your body knows it is now available to you and trying to get as much as possible? Is it possible that it is not just because we love to eat them?
I just ate some pink sea salt for the first time and I keep wanting to go dip my finger in the jar a few times througout the day. l keept seeing it at the store and wanting it. But I also keep seeing the raw sugars at the store but I keep thinking, nah, don't really want that.
Do you think your body is thinking, "now t hat I know you've got it in the house, I think I'll have you run to the kitchen once in a while to go get some".

Your "pink" sea salt......is it Himalayan Crystal Salt? If so, your body probably is craving it! It has many wonderful healing properties! There's a lot of research available on the internet and at www.living-foods.com.

My awsome raw vegan doctor sells this pink sea salt at his restraunt.
Here is all of the information on the label for you.
Premier Pink Salt: A premium blend of Natural Sea Salts for every day use.
Rich in natural electrolytes and minerals with strong piezoelectric capacity.
Recommended Use Use Premier Pink sal daily in place of regular table salt for the whole family.
Contains a blend of two premium, untreated, unheated, solar-dried sea salts: pure Mediterranean sea salt and pink Alaea Hawaiian sea salt.
Rich in trace minerals with strong piezoelectric capacity
No flowing or "anti-clumping agents as commonly added to regular table salt such as aluminum hydroxide, refined sugar, stearic acid, sodium ferrocyanide, calcium phosphate and others
No kidney/adrenal stress often seen with regular salt which is highly heated.
Premier Pink Salt is a blend of two premium, untreated sea salts
Our first hearty sea salt comes from the cool blue unpolluted waters of the Mediterranean sea using the oldest method of obtaining salt: solar evaporation.Pure sea water is transferred through a series of evaporation ponds, while the hot dry climate and gentle breezes hasten the evaporation process leaving behind only pure salt crystals, naturally rich in valuable trace minerals (not found in regular salt) with a strong piezoelevtric capacity.
Our second premium salt is pink Alaea Hawaiian sea salt. Over the centuries, this gourmet, solar-dried seal salt has been traditionally mixed with rich, health-promoting, pink Alaea clay from the Hawaiian islands, giving the salt a slightly pink color, naturally rich in manyh minerals with a gental purifying effect. Known as a sacred salt by the ancient Hawaiians for preservation of health.

I wish there were a website for this salt. I bought mine from my doctor's raw vegan restaraunt. The website is ecopolitan.com. Maybe you can buy it from the restaraunt.
I recently had a fruit salad that was SO boring and didn't have my favorite fruits in it, yet after a couple of bites I just wanted to keep eating it. It was crazy- I didn't want it, but I wanted it! To me that was a sign that I needed the nutrients in the salad. On the flip side of the coin, though, I had some raw sesame tahini yesterday, which I've eaten often these past couple of weeks, and I just couldn't take it. I had to spit it out! Seems to me my body was telling me I'd had enough of something in that stuff and that I didn't need anymore.
Funny thing- I used to ignore my body's signals in the past. If something tasted good I'd eat a mega amount of it long after my body stopped enjoying it. It feels great to not have those feelings anymore.

I had the same thing happen. I made sunflower and walnut pate with olive oil, garlic and tahini, and I was so grossed out by it that I could not eat it but after about 5 days all of the sudden I started to investigate it again and then ate it all up over the next few days.

yep DrPr, I'm doing the same thing. Imade some cashew hummas that was great for a day or 2 and now I just don't want it. I am however addicted to the coconut oil I got today. I just have to control myself. I wonder if it isn't some kind of connection with what my body needs or just my mind saying "hey that was good, get some more".
