Just as they say, you are what you eat then we feel what we eat. According to this article, your feeling of joy or even depression can be affected (or could be an effect) of what you eat. I, for myself, find delight in chocolates and coffee. But, I also love caffeinated soda drinks – too much for my own benefit. I am a migraine warrior and through the years, I have learned what foods or drinks to stay away from. I never drink (alcoholic drinks) so it’s not a problem for me. But what I find interesting is that when I consume oranges as “freshly-squeezed juice” it’s all fine but when I eat it as fresh, peeled and eaten directly, I immediately sense a migraine episode coming in.
Whenever I feel like my energy is plummeting and I am really in need of some energy booster, my first choice had always been a can of caffeinated soda drink. Yes, it does give me the caffeine boost especially if it’s too hot to drink coffee but a few hours after, I am back to my old “dragging due to lack of energy” self. I am slowly cutting back on the soda though, ever since my gastric juices started pressuring me for a little more self control.
We definitely are what we eat. If you want to be healthy, then avoid junk food. I personally find it difficult to take out all of the junk food in my diet all at once but slowly cutting back on it would be an easier route. Are you in a similar situation as mine? It’s really hard to eat “100% healthy food” sometimes. So, when I found this article about food and depression, I just felt the need to share it with you. Now, I definitely have more reasons to “bake” with butter ^^)
