I’d always had a somewhat tumultuous relationship with carbs. We’d been on-again-off-again for years: When I tried cutting them out completely, I felt cranky, weak, and tired. When I ate too many, I felt sleepy, bloated, and generally not-so-well. Until a trip to Australia and a daily habit of scrambled eggs on thick slices of sourdough bread changed everything.
The mid-day energy slump is something we all face. Mine usually hits right around 3:30PM, when the end of the day seems like it might never arrive and lunch feels like it was so very long ago. The only thing that tends to get me over that late afternoon hump is a good snack.
