Nutrition plays a role in just about every aspect of our health, and while we mostly think about physical health when it comes to the foods we eat, our mental health can be impacted as well. The foods you eat on a daily basis have the potential to either fuel and nourish your body for optimal health, or they can cause all sorts of imbalances and lead to further stress on the body.
Having imbalanced blood sugar levels can lead to all sorts of unwanted symptoms like fatigue, irritability, brain fog, and poor concentration, to name a few. The great news is that there are both nutritional and lifestyle changes you can make to help stabilize blood sugar levels while also supporting overall health.
Snacks are often a topic of confusion when it comes to eating healthy. While some diets may tell you to forgo snacks altogether, other diets will tell you how important snacks are to keep you nourished in between meals. The thing about snacks is that it can really go either way, and it all depends on the foods you snack on. Snacks can either provide added nourishment and blood sugar support between meals, or they can throw your blood sugar levels completely out of whack if you snack on sugary and processed foods. Snacking smart is all about choosing nutrient-dense foods that are rich in healthy fats, protein, and fiber to keep your blood sugar levels stable.
