Good food translates to good nutrition. It reduces high blood pressure, lowers bad cholesterol and improves immunity, including your ability to recover from an injury or illness. It also improves your energy levels, reduces the risk of certain diseases such as diabetes and enhances your general wellbeing.
Sticking to a healthy diet is bound to give you a general happier outlook, reduce cases of mood changes, and enhance your ability to focus. Studies have linked healthy eating to reduced anxiety and symptoms of depression.
Whatever you eat has a direct effect on your brain’s structure and function, eventually impacting your mood. Your brain, just like a car, functions optimally when it gets high quality fuel. In this case, the fuel is healthy food.
The healthiest foods include fruits and vegetables. They include broccoli (rich in calcium, fiber, folate, potassium, and phytonutrients), kales, apples (rich in antioxidants), avocados, blueberries, sweet potatoes, and leafy green veggies.
Healthy eating, according to Harvard’s Healthy Eating Plate, includes fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, whole grains, and healthy proteins in your diet. It also factors intake of sodium, salt, alcohol, and vitamins. And, water replaces sugar beverages.
