The Science of “Hangry”

I always used to wonder why I would so easily get irritated or even angry when I was hungry. My friends used to say, “uh oh, Elisa’s ‘hangry’ again!

Spicy Black Bean Burger

Lately, I have been craving a burger. I am a big texture person and there is something really enjoyable about biting into a sandwich/burger with loads of yummy toppings. I don’t eat meat though and finding a good veggie burger in NYC is rather tough if you can believe it. I think my cravings for [...]
