Food has an impact on your overall physical health AND your state of mind. Carbohydrates release serotonin, a “feel good” hormone. High sugar food gives an energy rush and then a crash. Complex carbs, such as vegetables, beans, and whole grains, can help you avoid the crash. Lean meat, poultry, legumes, and dairy are high in protein which will release dopamine which boost energy and concentration. Fatty fish has anti-inflammatory effects.
