Food and mood

It's not a secret that food can affect how you feel. Even though you might think that eating an entire quart of ice cream when you're feeling sad helps, it does not in the long run. Food is our fuel. Certain foods, like foods that contain vitamin D are good for your mood because they help produce dopamine, which is essential to your mood. But just because you eat the right things, doesn't mean you're in the clear. While eating the right things is important, eating enough is just as important. Eating three meals a day is important...which means you can't skip breakfast. As well as three healthy meals, we should be eating two snacks a day as well to keep our energy levels up in between the meals and ensuring that our blood sugar does not go down which can effect mood too. Pair these with a good daily workout and your mood will be increasingly better.
