Salads/Spring

I’ve been eating a ton of salad recently. Part of the reason is because some mixed greens that were planted last fall, finally came up early this spring. It is only May and some of it has already started to go to seed. The other part of it is that I’m just craving more fresh vegetables and fruit.

Why is it that when the temperature is warm you feel like eating salad more? And when it is cold you don’t? It is kind of the same when you race in cold weather, you tend to want to get your calories from eating and when it’s hot out, you do it through drinking. I’ve never quite understood those urges.
