5 Signs Food is Affecting Your Mood & Simple Solutions to Fix It

Okay, so today I want to talk to you about how FOOD can affect your mood.

Yes, it’s true. 

No, I’m not saying food is the only answer or the end all be all answer.

But if you haven’t fully committed to shifting your the way you eat and you’re looking to boost your mood or energy, then you’ll definitely want to continue reading.

You see, I’ve struggled with stress, anxiety, and fatigue most of my adult life, or I guess I could say since I became a mom. I mean, I basically accepted the fact that this is just how it is when you’re a young, busy mom - ya know, #momlife. 


But since diving into the health and wellness world, I’ve discovered so much about how FOOD is FUEL and MEDICINE. Seriously, every single day I continue to learn about amazing ways to use food to help myself and you FEEL better.


It’s funny because before I really got into learning about nutrition, I didn’t even realize how terrible I felt eating the Standard American Diet that I grew up on. I was so used to feeling the way that I did that I didn’t really know any different. 


Now that I am much more in tune with my body and how it feels, I choose to eat foods that actually make me feel good AND energized.

10 Tips for Overwhelmed Moms to Cope Better With Anxiety

Ever feel light headed, sick to your stomach, chest tightened and like you might just pass out or die?

Or have irrational fears like you’re kids going to die in their sleep or you might drive off the road and crash?

I’m assuming if you are reading this then you most likely have experienced some or all of those feelings or thoughts and perhaps, you are quite close friends with anxiety. I know, I am.

I’ve struggled with anxiety for my entire life and while there can be a lot of shame or hesitation to talk about it in today’s world, I am quite comfortable being open and honest about my struggle.

As I’ve gotten older I’ve learned that there are so many people that actually struggle with anxiety that I would have never expected. These people often seem extremely outgoing, confident, and like they really have their shit together, but once I really get to know them I realize we are more alike than I could have ever imagined. I find that it can be so comforting to share and connect with others about our struggles so we can feel a little less alone on this journey.

10 Foods to Help Ease Anxiety & Stress

Overcoming anxiety and managing stress can be accomplished by simple lifestyle changes. 

One of the most important, and often most overlooked, ways to reduce anxiety and stress is by maintaining a healthy diet. 

The food that you put inside of your body can not only worsen your anxiety and stress levels, but it can also dramatically improve your mood and overall health when choosing the right foods.

If you are looking for a natural way to reduce your stress and anxiety levels then I highly recommend adding some of the following foods to your diet immediately. 

Oatmeal - A delicious warm bowl of oatmeal is a great way to start your day off right. Oats increase the production of the calm inducing serotonin in the brain. Oatmeal is also comforting, filling, and will not spike your blood sugar the way refined carbohydrates and sugars do. Make sure to choose organic steel-cut or rolled oats when possible.
