Eat Well to Feel Better…..or you can get a great massage! :-)

I remember the phrase on my elementary school cafeteria walls “You are what you eat.” It turns out, what you eat also affects how you feel.  “Eating regularly is a key factor in boosting mood,” says Jeannie Gazzaniga-Moloo, PhD, RD, of Roseville, Calif., a registered dietitian and spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. “Anyone who skips a meal realizes that after a while they start to get edgy. It’s most likely because their blood sugar is dipping.”
Much of what you eat is converted to blood sugar, says Gazzaniga-Moloo,  Your cells use blood sugar for energy. “To keep a stable mood, you want to maintain your blood sugar levels. Eating foods that are slow to digest will help you do that,” says Gazzaniga-Moloo. “Foods that are high in fiber such as beans, oats, brown rice, apples, and other fruits and vegetables are good examples.”
Like fiber, protein can help you to avoid blood sugar crashes. Some good sources of protein are chicken, fish, eggs, seeds and nuts, low-fat yogurt, low-fat cheese and milk, tofu, and peanut butter. Ideally, you should combine protein and carbohydrates at meals, Gazzaniga-Moloo says. “Often, it’s how we put foods together that makes a difference. Combining protein and carbohydrates can help slow digestion and help you maintain a healthy blood sugar level.”
