An answer to your cravings
Jun 14, 2018
Ever wondered why we always crave for hot soup or stew when it gets cold out? It has something to do with our biology. The human body functions at an optimum temperature 37 degrees Celsius. As the surrounding temperature during the cold seasons drop, our bodies, especially our limbs, tend to feel cold. Knowing this, our bodies look for ways to warm itself up, one of which is to resort to the intake of hot food, like soup, during these wet and gloomy days.
When the craving for an appetite-warming meal hits, check out these spots:
