Food Affects Mood...

For the past week or so, I have finally been cooking my own meals instead of eating out (we have been moving). I have noticed my moods have been stable during this time as well. Yesterday we brought Krispy Kreme donuts into the house as a treat for the kids...yea...for "the kids." Anyways, today I ate leftover donuts for a snack and then proceeded through my afternoon without anymore nourishment. I left the house to do some work this evening at my office without eating dinner. And then when I was waiting to pick up one of the kids from an activity I had 20 minutes to spare and drove through McDonald's because I was starving! Now I am grumpy...just plain grumpy. And I know why.

When you eat healthy foods, you feel good. When you eat unhealthy food, you don't feel good. It's as simple as that.

Isn't that the truth. So why do we keep indulging anyway? LOL

i hear you on this one! i find i crash harder now after eating sweets on an empty stomach (and knowing FULL WELL before putting my hand to mouth that i'm going to feel it in half an hour). sure enough. it's soooo yummy, but so not good, but SO YUMMY!! and always the so not good wins in the end after digesting the so yummy... :)

My husband and I have recently reached the same conclusion. Amazing, isn't it?
