MOOD FOOD

Perfect Wedding Magazine - - Nutrition -

If you’re feel­ing a lit­tle down in the dumps, it’s tempt­ing to reach for the crisps and choco­late, but go­ing for pro­cessed prod­ucts and re­fined sugar will only cause even more mood swings from the sugar spike and in­evitable slump. Bear with us – we’re not to­tally suck­ing all fun out of treat night. Carbs may be the an­swer! How­ever, it’s all about the type of carbs you choose to eat and how you eat them. A low-fat, low-pro­tein, high-car­bo­hy­drate snack (think a toasted English muf­fin with a dol­lop of home­made jam) will cre­ate sero­tonin in the body, a neu­ro­trans­mit­ter that boosts mood and curbs crav­ings. Score!
