    Great post. I find that bananas, blueberries and chocolate improves my mood. I am also an emotional eater so I like this post so I can focus on foods that improve my mental health

    Tiana 🙂

  2. This is so true. While I have not found specific food triggers I know when I’m eating better more whole foods, rather than processed foods I feel so much better.

  3. I’m always surprised at how much my health and mood is effected by what I eat. It’s so important to avoid processed foods and non-organic produce. The chemicals that go into those things are shocking.

    • You’re right! It can be really hard to always choose the right foods, but it’s so important. I don’t even want to know about some of the chemicals that go into what I eat! Thanks for your comment!

  4. I’m with you on the gluten, I’m not coeliac but I feel like crap after eating it. I definitely feel better mentally with a good dose of fruit and vegetables every day

    • My roommate was the same way! She’s not celiac either but she won’t go near gluten because it makes her feel like crap. Thanks for your comment, we appreciate it!

    • Thanks, we were really lucky to have Bri this week! If you want more of her content, be sure to sign up for her newsletter on the form up in the post. Thanks for your comment!

  5. It’s amazing how important diet can be to our overall health and happiness. I have celiac disease, so I definitely know that food (AKA gluten) can make my life horrible. And taking a probiotic has definitely helped me feel better all-around!

    • Probiotics are so helpful! I started taking one recently, too. And yeah, gluten is on a whole other level of horrible for you if you have celiac! Thanks for your comment, we appreciate it.

  6. Love the idea of these types of posts! Definitely believe food and emotions go hand in hand. When I eat junk food I tend to be more “moody” than usual.

    • Thanks for your comment Olivia! I always wondered if it was a vicious circle. Like, we eat junk food because we feel like crap, but then we feel like crap because we ate a ton of junk food!

  7. Very interesting read. I have found at least for myself there are certain foods I associate with certain feelings or moods. I suspect when I eat them I gain that call back. Certainly can help some deeper moods.

    • Right?! I didn’t either until Bri approached me with this post idea. We were lucky to have her visit Uninspired! Thanks so much for your comment!

    • Glad you liked it! I’m definitely going to be on the lookout for how I feel after I eat certain things now. Thanks for your comment!

  8. Thank you so much for this post. I really think I needed to know that I am in control of my body and that I could possible prevent myself from developing mental illnesses. For the past month, I have been dealing with what I self-diagnosed as mild depression and anxiety. I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t eat and I basically want to just disappear from the world. I do feel slightly better now, but I believe I have a long way to go in dealing with my own stress levels. Art is currently my way out and I’m hoping it will help me in the long run.
