Boost Your Mood
A well-balanced diet isn’t just going to help you maintain a healthy weight or keep your orthodontist happy. There are actually certain foods that can alter your mood immediately. For those that have been feeling down in the dumps, here are some changes that anyone can make to their diet in order to tap into the mood-boosting power of food.
Balance Protein and Carbs
Balancing one’s blood sugar levels is the single most effective way to alter your mood with food. Lean carbohydrates such as whole wheat pasta and quinoa will allow your body to produce insulin while protein will keep you feeling full longer. Every single person is different, and this is why it is important to test the right balance for your own body.
