Carb (carbohydrate) cravings are a common discussion amongst those who are trying to get fit, lose weight and keeping an eye on their diet.
Carbs, in simple terms, are foods consisting of sugar, starch and fibre.
We often find that our body craves carbs - particularly the sugar variety - from mid-afternoon on wards.
Why do we crave carbs? Why do we not crave celery sticks? Why is it always sweet foods, that are high carbohydrates, that we long for?
Christmas is a time for giving and sharing, but as each year goes past, I am more aware of the waste that comes of this season. Food waste, packaging waste, unwanted or un-needed gift waste, clothes waste and also time waste. No one likes waste, especially money waste, yet we all seem to get sucked into the wasteful trend. What if we put a stop to this practice, refocused on the real meaning of the festive season, and experienced a Christmas without so much waste?
