Don’t you think food and mood are so closely linked?
When people ask ‘how do I stop my sugar cravings’ I start by saying that those sugar cravings could be due to the fact that you are tired or you are feeling sad or even happy! Food is more than just fuel we can use it to comfort ourselves and celebrate with.
Here are some other facts.
B vitamins are needed to make energy from food, without them we would feel lethargic and depressed. They are in whole-grains, fish and seafood, meat, eggs, milk, beef, green vegetables, beans and peas.
Tryptophan is an amino acid needed to make the happy hormone, serotonin and regulates sleep. You can find it in bananas 🍌 walnuts, turkey 🦃 milk 🥛 eggs 🍳 cheese 🧀 brown rice, chicken 🍗 and fish 🐟
Water 💧 can stop headaches, make us feel more energised and helps with optimum concentration 🤯
