While many of us have heard the saying, “you are what you eat”, we hardly stop to think about it for more than a few seconds. As 2023 begins, we must be more mindful of the food we consume and how those foods directly impact our mood.

Including the right foods in your diet in 2023 to help boost your mood is necessary, it’s a must, and we’re here to help you do just that with our tasty recipes and these five mood-boosting foods!

Five Mood-Boosting Foods For 2023!

  1. Oats -A cup of oats a day keeps your mood at bay. Oats are known to stabilise blood sugar levels which are vital for controlling irritability and mood swings. Stabilise your blood sugar levels with the Granola Bars recipe by Flora for breakfast and boost your mood for the day ahead!
  2. Nuts and Seeds – Seeds and nuts are high in healthy fats, plant-based proteins and fibre. They also provide tryptophan – an amino acid that produces mood-boosting serotonin. The Seeded Rusks recipe is power packed with excellent sources of serotonin, such as cashews, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and Flora Regular.
  3. Bananas – This mood-boosting food is high in Vitamin B6, which assists in synthesising feel-good neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine, stabilising blood sugar levels for better mood control. The Banana and Almond Muffins recipe is sure to turn your frown upside down with delicious ingredients, such as ripe banana, almond flakes, self-raising flour, and Flora Gold, to name a few.
  4. Berries – Such as raspberries, are high in fibre, vitamin C, and antioxidant polyphenols. Berries can help manage stress levels and may help to lower your risk of depression. The Beetroot, Orange, and Raspberry Smoothie Popsicle recipe is deliciously made with ingredients such as yoghurt, honey and frozen raspberries.
  5. Salmon – Salmon is high in Omega 3. Some benefits of Omega 3 include improving one’s heart health. The Grilled Salmon On A Bed Of Sautéed Greens recipe is made from succulent ingredients such as sautéed greens, Salmon, chopped garlic cloves, zucchini and Flora Light.
