I don’t get this thread at all:
The guy takes a million years and conducts a bunch of contrived, unnecessary experiments to prove something that was never in dispute. We crave foods that have the nutrients our bodies need. Well, duh. Did anybody somehow manage not to notice?
Klara’s permanent teeth are coming in, so I’m boiling eggs for her all day. She needs calcium, so I’m boiling eggs, steaming broccoli and slicing cheese like a maniac because she keeps asking. I’d much rather make her some mashed potatoes because the stench of boiled eggs is getting to me but it’s a no-go. The phrase “are there any more eggs, mommy?” is giving me heart palpitations.
I’m low on vitamin C (and who isn’t after an endless winter like this one?), so I’m eating oranges by the sackful and fantasizing about orange juice which I normally have no interest in. I’m not doing it on purpose. It’s an overpowering craving.
And I’m sure that once I board the airplane on May 9, I’ll experience an uncontrollable desire for tomato juice that I never notice otherwise.
In kids, nutritional wisdom is really pronounced because they haven’t had a chance to mess up their healthy instincts. Klara once overate cake at a birthday party and then came home and ate nothing but raw cauliflower for two days.
So I’m not sure why all this is delivered as some sort of a revelation. Huge scientific breakthrough! If you close your eyes, it’s possible you might not see what’s in front of you! Here are 15 studies proving it!
