Great day out with my wonderful parents at the Queen of the South hospitality this afternoon. 12 years ago I was the one serving the meals here so was good to be back on the other side! At the end of another year it is great to spend it with good company and reflect what has been achieved and what is to come. Happy New Year to everyone! #queenofthesouth #palmerstonpark #dougiethedoonhamer #pieandbovril #hogmany #happynewyear #familytime

Do carbs make you sleepy, especially after lunch?

When you have a carbohydrate heavy meal for lunch, your body breaks it down into glucose. This sudden large influx of glucose in the blood stream causes insulin (the body's blood sugar regulator) to be released. Insulin stabilises blood glucose levels by either using the glucose as energy or by storing it in cells. A rapid spike in insulin from glucose levels causes blood sugar levels to plummet back down leading to a crash - this is where you start to feel drowsy, tired and in need of a nap.
What should you eat then?

To control insulin and keep blood sugar levels stable, avoid excessive sugars, fruits and processed foods. Opt for a balanced low-carb meal which is high in protein and has a moderate amount of fibre and fat to keep you full and satiated. At just under 400 calories, Lean Bento's Salmon Salad bento will do just the trick.
