Eat balanced meals
Aim to eat balanced meals regularly as this will help maintain blood sugar levels and prevent irritability and fatigue
Look to include more of these in your diet, so opt for wholemeal bread, pasta, rice and include a variation of grains into your diet such as quinoa, buckwheat or freekeh. They release energy slowly which prevents peaks in blood sugar levels.
Fruit & Veg
Eating a variety of different coloured fruit and vegetables every day helps to provide our bodies with a range of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and antioxidants which can help protect our brain cells. They also provide useful amounts of fibre- essential for a healthy gut!
Include more plant-based sources of protein in your diet, as it contains tryptophan an amino acid that may be linked with healthy brain function.
Aim to include 2 portions of fish a week, one of which is oily as they are full of omega 3 fatty acids that can help support healthy brain function and mood.
Drink plenty of fluids to help prevent dehydration which can also affect your mood.
