Don’t be a hangry jerk
Jamaican jerk soft tacos with mango coulis are bursting with flavour, super easy to make and will retard your hanger pangs instantly.
When you’re in the throes of hanger, you’re tempted to reach for that Snickers—stop! Junk foods induce spikes in blood-glucose levels that come crashing down fast. Instead, think nutrient-rich, natural foods and proper meals that help satisfy hunger for as long as possible.
The Scotch pepper found in jerk spice contains capsaicin. Capsaicinoids trick the brain into thinking you’re being burned—owee! The brain responds by releasing endorphins and dopamine. This triggers a sense of euphoria similar to a “runner’s high”. Capsaicin is also used for manufacturing pepper spray—perfect, now when you see that damn bear on the Mashiter you can throw a taco at her.
