"Life in the Fast Lane"

Fasting Journal 17:  Pay attention to your body signals

I'm noticing that my desire for vegetables is diminishing and my tastes are changing.  I mean BIG time!!

Here's what I'm noticing.  I used to love tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, carrots and cauliflower.  But something's happened and I don't know what to make of it.  But I've decided to listen to my body.

For instance, now I prefer my tomatoes cooked down into a sauce but I don't like to just eat a sliced tomato. I do like them sundried, in olive oil though.  I do still like the grape tomatoes but only just a few tossed in a green salad.

There's something about broccoli and cauliflower that's turning me off, which is really weird because those were two of my favorite veggies of all time.  I mean cauliflower is so versatile!  And broccoli soup?  Hello?!  But just the smell of them (raw or cooked) is turning me off.  This is very bizarre to me.

Carrots I lost my taste for a few years back.  I don't like them raw nor cooked.  Come to think of it, I was allergic to them as a child.  I grew out of the allergy though.

Cabbage, raw or cooked, is teetering on the verge of falling off my plate too.  I do love sauerkraut though.

Eggplant, NEVER liked that!  :o)

For now I'll eat my leafy greens and what naturally appeals to me.  In the meantime I'm going to look into what may be causing this new aversion to some vegetables.

I'm thinking that maybe I just ate those veggies in the past because I was told they were so good for me.  Maybe they weren't...  Let's see what this sleuth can learn.  Stay tuned!

Chew on this:

- If you really hate certain vegetables, there may be a very good, physiological reason for it.
