New Taste Buds · 6 October 2012
My taste buds have changed. After eating almost vegan for the past month or so, I find myself not desiring the foods I loved before.
When I first started this healthy journey, I completely gave up sweets for a time. It ended up being a way to reset my system. Since then, I have found that I can eat a cookie or piece of pie and not be as tempted to have that second or third one. I did want a second piece of pie the other night at my dinner meeting, but I waited a few minutes and the desire passed. Later, I was glad I did not eat the whole thing.
Apparently, I still like sweet stuff, but I cannot eat as much of it. Nor do I usually want to. While I understand the loss of desire to have lots of sweets, I do not quite understand why I do not crave meat.
I used to consider myself quite the carnivore. I could not get enough meat. Now, I do not even find it appealing. Sure, I have had a little fish now and then, but even so, I do not want to eat much. Regardless of the type, meat now smells funny and I do not find myself craving any of it like I thought I would.
It turns out that I would much rather fill my belly with leafy green stuff now.
I am still not sure where this whole journey will lead me, but I find it interesting that just adjusting my eating has changed my desires. No, I am not just trying to fool myself or convince myself. I really do not want the meat or sweets anymore.
It is odd, but my taste buds really have changed.
