Think about what you crave on a regular basis. Is it chocolate after every meal? Do you always hanker for a packet of crisps or a giant bowl of pasta? We crave food for many reasons, here’s the science to explain (and what you can do to curb the hankering!)
Eating lots of processed foods, with their empty calories and refined carbohydrates, puts the human body in an acidic state which can led to sugar and carb cravings.
Lots of plant-based green foods, clean organic protein and complex carbs like quinoa, barley or brown rice. SUPER ELIXIR Alkalising Greens is your all-in-one multivitamin from organic wholefood ingredients. Just two teaspoons in 300ml water everyday and you’ll be on your way.
