Link Between Food and Mood

Foods to keep you happy, confident and healthy

There are a lot of things we need to consider related to food, staying healthy and feeling good about ourselves.  Here, I’m just listing 2 key areas I believe strongly in.

There is a big connection between carbohydrates and your mood. Your mood is linked to a chemical in the brain called serotonin. By eating smart carbs like whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes (beans) you can feel good about yourself.

Low levels of vitamin D have been linked to depression.  You can take vitamin D in pill form, you can get it from certain foods, but you can also get it straight from the sun. This is the best source for vitamin D.  A good 30 to 60 minutes 2 to 3 times a week should do the trick.  So soak up a few rays (with plenty of sun screen on) and it will make a difference in how you feel about yourself.
