Food and Well Being


We all love food… who doesn’t? What is so neat about food these days is that research has enabled us to understand the overall capabilities that food has to fuel our body for the better of our physical and mental wellbeing. Being a food-lover myself, I wanted to compile a list of important foods that will help keep your body healthy and intact, and will help fuel your body for the day! Here you go, and don’t get too hungry! :)

Dark Chocolate

  • Protects you against heart attacks and strokes

  • Reduces inflammation

  • Lowers blood pressure

  • Contains hormone-releasing receptors which make you happy and revitalized!

Spicy Food

  • Release endorphins to promote overall happiness and well-being

  • Aid in killing pathogens so you do not get sick!

  • Promote sweating as a coolant for the body, particularly in warmer locations

Bananas

  • The potassium in them aids in nerve functions.

  • Natural sugars within the banana give energy and sustains your good mood for a long period of time

Grapes

  • High in vitamin C and full of natural sugar for energy.

  • Helps to produce endorphins

  • Natural energy promotes wellbeing and enhances the use of these endorphins!

Eggs

  • Contain a chemical called tyrosine and tryptophan to help boost positive mentality and thinking

  • Plenty of vitamins to boost physical and mental wellbeing!

Eating your FAVORITE FOOD

  • Helps to bring about pleasure

  • Makes your brain release endorphins to elevate your mood while you enjoy that tasty burger or that flavorful ice cream!
