Hey Tom, thank you for your response.
I've had sushi once and I am not a fan. Why did you become intolerant to tea?
I have also magically become lactose intolerant, but fortunately there are alternatives.

Tried various tea's, no luck so far finding one i can stomach. Get the same reaction from various fruits (and one vegetable), so as a developer I tried looking into it the same way one would look into a bug: What do tea, citrus fruits and uncooked carrots have in common? Our bodies aren't computers, unfortunately.

If I could, I would puree food and just drink it all up.

Tried Soylent? I tried the european variant, Joylent, for a while. They add too much oats to their mix. It is a very convenient meal when one doesn't want to plan meals but still eat healthy, and drink enough water.

I have not tried Soylent, it's actually the first time I even hear of it. I am also allergic to apricots, plums, peaches, and apples. And I only developed the allergy in my teens.

I spent a while on Huel (same kind of stuff) here in my office. It's alright, actually, and super quick to prepare.
