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!
