Mood-boosting meal plans
If you’re looking for a mood-boosting eating plan, be sure to remember:
- Food is the body’s fuel and is vital for keeping you energised. Eating at regular intervals will ensure that you have enough get-up-and-go to power you throughout the day, which will in turn help to boost your mood and keep you feeling motivated.
- It is also important to keep hydrated and limit your caffeine intake. This will not only improve your concentration levels, but will also have a positive impact on your complexion, leaving you looking fresh-faced and healthy.
- Dips in energy and low moods can be directly linked to your blood sugar levels. Carb heavy meals cause a spike in blood insulin levels, which may give you an initial boost of energy, but this is quickly followed by a crash as blood sugar dips; leaving you feeling tired & irritable. Sticking to a low-carb diet and choosing foods rich in mood-boosting nutrients will instead help you to say #HelloHappy all day.
