Is Your Diet Making You Moody? Here are the Foods That Can Boost Your Mood

Did you know that the foods you eat impact your health not only physically but mentally as well? Diet plays a huge role in how we feel each and every day, and while some foods can give you lots of energy and boost your overall mood, other foods will have the opposite effect.

One of the biggest ways foods impact our mood happens to do with blood sugar. When we consume foods high in sugar, our blood sugar levels spike and then crash which can leave us feeling jittery, on edge, and just downright irritable. It can also impact our energy levels and leave us feeling wired and then tired, much like having too much caffeine.

However, the good news is that there are plenty of foods that can help boost your overall mood and can also help keep your blood sugar levels stable throughout the day.

Here are three foods to add to your diet for a more positive mood. 


3 Foods For a Happier Mood  


Avocados: Avocados contain both omega-3’s and folate both of which play a role in supporting a positive mood. Try adding sliced avocado to a salad or blending half of an avocado into a smoothie for added creaminess. 

#2 Raw Cacao: Here is another excuse to enjoy chocolate! Well, not just any kind of chocolate. Raw cacao holds some really impressive health benefits, and mood support happens to be one of them. Raw cacao is thought to help boost mood by telling the brain to release neurotransmitters to then create feel-good hormones. (1) Try adding a sprinkle of cacao nibs to a bowl of oatmeal or blended into a smoothie.

#3 Blueberries: Who would have known that these delicious superfood berries could help support a more positive mood? Blueberries are thought to boost mood due to their flavonoid content. Flavonoids have been found to help support a happy mood and prevent depression. (2)

If you feel like you are walking around in a funk lately, don’t underestimate the power of nutrition when it comes to improving your overall mood. Try adding these three mood-boosting foods to your diet to see how they can help you feel a bit more positive each day.
