Its not very often I crave salad in the winter, I tend to be attracted to warmer foods. Yet, on this day, I saw a range of ingredients in my kitchen and just started putting them together – I loved the result!
Do you notice that you crave certain foods at certain times of the year? Or crave certain foods when you find yourself in different circumstances?
One of the key ideas around food and health that I have been playing with lately is awareness. Simply slowing down and starting to become aware of what my body is wanting or challenging my body a little when it starts asking for foods that I’m not sure I really want.
Its a fun game, try it out and see if you start finding different answers to what you thought!
