I don’t know about you, but if there’s one thing I love about the colder season, it’s that your experience with food seems to be (and taste) even better. If you’re the type who eats more during the colder season – don’t worry it’s nothing to be ashamed of.  In fact, there are scientific and societal explanations for why these things happen.

Check out: everyday HEALTH’s article Why Do We Eat More in Winter for an in-depth explanation.

Some say it’s because of our baser instinct telling us to stockpile some fat for warmth and energy throughout the colder months. Others say it’s simply because of human tradition telling us to imbibe copious (and probably unhealthy) amounts of luscious hot chocolate and other delectable treats. Either way, you’re not the only one who eats the equivalent of a meal and a half more during winter time. The best part is, this kind of winter foodie behaviour is not only accepted in society – it’s celebrated. In Brisbane, they take the winter foodie game to a whole new level:
