I find raw foods the
most delicious foods I've ever eaten. Of course many of the gourmet raw concoctions aren't exactly healthy either; but to me, nothing tastes better than a sweet, juicy, sun-flavored fruit.
Anyway, what you desire is what you have learned and your body acclimated.
some call it addiction; some foods are
addicting, as Dr. -- was it Barnard? or Ornish? -- discovered about cheese.
We really are NOT slaves to these foods; they are merely habits needed to be broken. Our natural diet is not sugar and fat ladened, caffeine-spiked indulgences.
Dr. Fuhrman has written extensively on our "tastes"; click on these colored links to read more:
"The more you make healthful meals, and the more days you link together eating healthful foods, the more your brain will naturally prefer to eat that way.
Your taste for healthful foods will develop. It has been shown that a new food needs to be eaten about 10 to 15 times for it to become a preferred food. The more days you eat healthfully, the more you will lose your addiction to unhealthful, stimulating substances; and with time, you will look forward to—and prefer eating—a diet that is more natural and wholesome."
