Food to Lift Your Mood – Tips

by Trace on August 11, 2010

Here are some very simple tips to build into your every day diet…

ANGRY?


Eat a grapefruit! It’s rich in pectin, a soluble fibre that lowers blood cholesterol and reverses the negative effects anger has on the body. Grapefruit also contains vitamin C, potassium, calcium and iron.

DEPRESSED?


Try a bowl of plain rice, a low-fat, no-cholesterol complex carbohydrate full of selenium, which may ward off depression.

MENTAL ALERTNESS!


Need to be more MENTALLY ALERT? Reach for an apple. It contains lots of boron, which helps boost mental alertness.

CHOCOLATE ANYONE?


Cocoa contains phenylethylkamine — a compound that is released in the brain when emotionally aroused (many say the effects resemble the feeling of falling in love). Chocolate also contains phenols, antioxidants that reduce heart disease.

TIRED AND DEPRESSED?


Grab a handful of raisins, rich in iron.

FEELING OLD?


Fill up on carrots, an excellent source of beta-carotene, which is not only famous for promoting healthy eyesight, but decelerates the aging process.

How about making some Peppermint Chia Balls?

What you will need is:

~ 450gm tahina

~ Either  1 cup organic cocoa with ¾ cup Agave          ChiaSeeds

~ Or  1 cup Carob with ¾ cup honey

~ ½ – ¾ cup coconut flour

~ 100gm chia seeds – ground to a flour

What you will need to do:

Mix well and roll into small balls and refrigerate.

How Many?

100 balls = 10gm/ball              50 balls = 20gm/ball

Enjoy!
