Nobody likes being in a bad mood and sometimes food is the only thing that can turn your mood around! So here are my top 5 mood foods to combat feeling stressed of overwhelmed.
1. Citrus fruits like lemons, limes, grapefruit, oranges – the Vitamin C helps lower your levels of your stress hormone cortisol
2. Fibre fibre fibre! Like fruits and vegetables – these nutrient dense carbohydrates increase serotonin (think happy hormone) production
3. Spinach or other leafy greens and super dark chocolate like @lindt_australia 90% – the magnesium will help you avoid headaches and fatigue.
4. Fatty Fish (salmon and tuna) and nuts and seeds (flaxseeds, chia, walnuts) and the good old egg – these precious anti-inflammatory Omega-3 Fatty Acids feed our stress glands, the adrenals and make them HAPPY again!
