Can the Mediterranean Diet Make Us Happier? On the health and fitness website The Greatist, research suggests that the Mediterranean diet can help us to get and stay healthy. It includes foods such as:
- Fresh fruits
- Fresh vegetables,
- Whole grains
- Nuts and seeds
- Herbs and spices
- Olive oil
- With dairy, poultry, fish and red wine all in moderation
A daily diet high in plant-based foods and lower in animal foods has been touted by many reputable organizations such as the Mayo Clinic and the American Heart Association. Healthy fats that are present in the Mediterranean diet could put you in a really good mood. Eat healthy food that boosts your mood.
While in Leavenworth Washington I enjoy visiting Good Mood Food for:
- A tasty egg breakfast with a side salad
- Medicinal chicken soup
- An antioxidant filled juice drink with turmeric root
- A mixed berry filled scone
Single ingredient, whole foods are one of the important pieces to a well healthy lifestyle. These foods along with this view give me an immediate mood boost!
