Yearning for sweets is a natural bodily hunger.
Primates in nature eat half fruit and half greens.
Fruit is a natural sweet that we were designed to indulge in.

But balancing “modern” foods is more challenging…

When you eat something dry, you then want something wet…
When you eat something salty, you wants something sweet…
When you eat too much sweet, you then want something bitter…
Hence:

chips & dip

In ancient times, salt was literally worth its weight in gold.  In desert areas where salt was rare, people would die for want of it.  Real salt contains every mineral known to man and minerals are the building blocks of everything on this planet.

In modern times, mining companies discovered that sea water contains precious minerals — uranium, gold, silver, etc — and that water is cheaper to mine than land. So modern miners evaporate sea water, sort out the valuable elements one from another, remove them, sell the precious minerals for “big bucks” and sell the residue — the sodium chloride — to us. … Read more…

Water foods are foods that grow in the water and close to the ground, such as heavy squashes, melons, strawberries, pineapple, and dark green leafy vegetables.  Most animals make greens a large part of their diets.  To be healthy in body and mind, humans should eat lots of greens too.

“But where do we get our protein?” I hear you ask.  “Where do cows get their protein?” I respond.

Water foods soothe. They help you sleep well.  Eat a nice large salad at dinner time and you will sleep like a baby. Too many water foods may overwhelm.
