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.
