Have you ever gone to the beach to build a sand castle? Castles aren't the only thing that you can build with sand. Look at the giant face that this man has built in the sand.
Sand sculptures aren't like sculptures that are made out of stone. Stone sculptures will last for a long time, but sand sculptures get washed away by the ocean and the wind.
Sometimes it is sad to think that these pretty pieces of art can't last forever, but that is also a good thing. Because old sand sculptures are always being washed away, artists have to keep making new ones. You can never get bored of sand sculptures because there are always new and different ones to look at!

You can still eat what you want (3/5) 你想吃的還是可以吃（三） A: Foods with non-refined starch, such as brown rice, whole grain bread and oats are less easy to digest, so they will release the glucose more slowly and steadily, just like if you turn on the faucet more carefully, so that your blood sugar won’t jump up all of a sudden. B: So we should eat more non-refined starchy foods, is that right? A: Yes, so you should be eating less of foods such as white rice, noodles, white bread, cakes and cookies — because these are all refined. B: I’ve been hearing the phrase “low GI diet” a lot recently, is this
You can still eat what you want (4/5) 你想吃的還是可以吃（四） A: If you don’t want to go into a food coma after eating food, there is another thing you could try: eating more fruit and vegetables. B: Ah, I’ve tried that! For a while I wanted to lose weight, and I only ate vegetables and chicken salad for all three meals, and I ended up not being able to sleep because I was so hungry.

The couple will even kiss in a comic to be published next month, the publisher said, describing the new Superman as “bisexual.” As CNN commented, Jon will not be the first queer superhero when he comes out as bisexual next month, but he
A: You could try eating often but smaller portions, so that you won’t be digesting too much food at any one time, which will be easier on your stomach and your blood sugar won’t jump.

But I have found that if my jaw is always moving and my teeth are always biting into things, I don’t feel so sleepy when I’m studying. A: Then you should eat a low calorie food like konnyaku or
