It pays to be careful with what you eat
For the past couple of days, I have been having cravings at night where I normally don't. I usually experience this kind of hunger pangs or hunger pain whenever I drink 3-in-1 coffee. That's the reason why I stopped drinking instant coffee because of that. There are still rare occasions that I do that. I just have to make sure that I have eaten or I am about to eat or when I know I will be eating soon.
What happens with hunger pangs is that your blood level will be low, your stomach growls and grumbles asking you to be merciful enough to please eat. At times, I would feel clammy and cold and I break out in sweats. I would usually eat bread or something and then I'll be okay. Other times, I just let it pass.
I searched Google for what causes hunger pangs/pain and these are some reasons why we feel this.

According to the site, lack of sleep and stress can cause this as well. Also, the quality and quantity of food that you ingest.
Which makes me realize we haven't been eating food rich in fiber lately.
So, today, we agreed on eating that for now and more later.
We had salad, chicken and wine earlier. I purchased this wine from a nearby store and it tasted sweet. It's what I have known bugnay wine to be. I'll be looking out for this particular wine next time. It's not indicated in the label how much alcohol was in it. I'm guessing 3-5% because it is sweet really and unlike the previous wines we have had, you don't feel the effect of alcohol right away.
Anyway, we have had fresh carrots, bell pepper, lettuce, leeks, cucumber and boiled eggs. We just bought cooked chicken to add to the mix. We decided not to add nuts. I'll just munch on that later and probably the leftover cucumber and carrots.
I can also make some sandwich out of those and probably just adding cheese.
Also, I saw Nueva Vizcaya oranges sold in the market at a cheaper price than months before. I bought a kilo of that too and will be buying more later on. I do like citrus fruits a lot.
What I don't like with these oranges is that it's like a gamble. Although they are sweet, you don't always have juicy ones. The degree of sweetness also varies per fruit which is really interesting how that happens.
This is a reminder to eat more fruits and vegetables. I am a meat lover but I do like veggies and fruits as well. I am no expert when it comes to diet but we should learn how to balance what we eat.
Sharing with you this photo that I took earlier when I went out for a walk.
I like it when the rays are like that, reaching as far as they can. When this happens, they don't last that long that's why I took this photo even though it was not a clear view just in case I will not be able to reach the spot where there is a clearer view in time before the rays disappeared.
This is the lead image taken some meters away from the photo above.
