Carbs and the coast

O my, what is in common with carbs and the coast – carbs meaning carbohydrates?

Firstly, I need to break down my carb-coast dilemma:

1. Although my diet usually consists of carbs being vegetarian, however, I hardly ever have starch and/or flour based carbs. Fruits, vegetables and most definitely leafy greens is what I am all about.

2. I am sure you have already made the assumption that I am a mad coastal being, so I don’t really need to explain how the coast is part of my life; it is my way of life.

Next is getting to the bottom of this tangent. It’s only been five days since I was along a coast and I could be possibly getting a little weirder – thank god I am on my way to Brighton Beach. Yes, I am in England and in carb central, which has resulted in consuming everything that I wouldn’t normally do (apparently I shouldn’t worry as I am on holidays). Though with southern France and Sorrento being my coastal stops along this adventure, I do hope so my vintage swimsuit doesn’t out do me (haha).

Anyway, also being an over thinker, this has led me to figure out whether I am consuming carbs in replacement of the coast… am I emotionally consuming carbs because I am in a coastal drought? As it turns out there are many similarities, which could justify the scones, toast, baguettes and sandwiches, o and fries and buns, instead of the dunes, foreshores and beaches.

What do you think?

Highly addictive Highly addictive
Can’t live without carbs Can’t live without the coast

I just hope I can get a cone of leafy greens at the end of the pier at Brighton Beach, or even find a broccoli bar to hang out at. Either way I am sure a pebble beach will be much more interesting than the baguette I have in hand!
