During mango season, I joyfully feast on mangoes that are local, organic, and naturally ripened. Many of the mangos I eat are from the trees in our home garden.
Two years in a row now I notice that mango feasting seems to cause intense emotions in my body.
In 2015, during mango feasting I experienced so many intense emotions and I developed a wild longing to eat traditional cooked foods.
In 2016, I exclusively ate mangos for three weeks and felt amazing. My whole life felt purified. But I started to feel many strange emotions, including an obsessive nostalgia for cooked foods.
This year I am planning to abstain from all mangoes to test whether it's the mangoes that really cause these strong, painful feelings.
(My other suspicion is that maybe it isn't the fruit, but the effects of the rainy season - all the thunder, lightening, clouds and negative ions may be affecting me emotionally.)
Does anyone relate to this experience?
