Random Meat Cravings on a Vegan Diet

Random Meat Cravings on a Vegan Diet

I’ve been reading some forum threads online about people going vegan and suddenly at 6 months, they find themselves craving a burger or some fried chicken.

I for one don’t experience these cravings at all, after being vegan for so long. But, once I had this sudden craving for KFC chicken that literally came out of nowhere! And it was a very strong craving.

So, why would a vegan suddenly have random cravings for animal foods?

It’s hard to say. It could be psychological and a random craving from our subconscious mind had surfaced. And it could just be something we saw on TV or online that triggered a craving.

I’m at a point now where I don’t really craving anything that came from an animal. I think I’ve seen enough animals being slaughtered and various documentaries that convinced me never to eat animals again. I feel so disassociated from eating animals, that I truly crave certain vegan foods, like a nice vegan potato salad or some stir fried veggies.

I think the longer you remain a vegan, you simply don’t crave meat any more. It’s like the furthest thing from your mind.

One thing I do crave at times as a vegan is potato chips. And I used to crave fries before, but I’ve lost that craving which is good.

And once-in-a-while…. popcorn with no butter.
