Power Up with Power Foods

Did you know that what you eat affects your mood? Load up on too many twinkies, and you might enjoy the indulgence but I promise you'll feel miserable after!

When you're facing challenges, from breastfeeding to fatigue, sickness to depression, reach for foods that will boost your mood and fill your body with good fuel. Have these foods on hand, ready to eat, so when you need to snack, they are very easy to grab and munch. They are actually proven to combat disease and help you lose weight:

  • Blueberries/Strawberries/Any berries
  • Whole grain bread
  • Apples
  • Watermelon
  • Avocado
  • Eggs
  • Broccoli
  • Salmon
  • Peanut butter/nuts (small portions)

Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and
the fruit tree....And God saw that it was good." - Genesis 1:11-12
