Ever feel like your moods are out of whack?
According to Woman's Day magazine, there are certain foods you can eat to tame your wild moods. Being a college student means you get your fair, or unfair, share of stress. In order to combat this stress, studies  show that eating just a small piece of dark chocolate a day helps to reduce stress hormones like Cortisol and Catecholamine from flaring up, which helps to decrease overall stress.  I'm sure you've woken up early for your 8 AM feeling super cranky because you only got four hours of sleep the night before; we've all been there. If that's the case, grab an apple and some peanut butter before class! The combination of carbohydrate and protein work together to give you extra energy and make you feel better throughout the day. Another effort to help you feel better and happier throughout the day is to nosh on some whole grain cereal and low fat milk. Studies show if you are feeling sad, this meal helps to produce serotonin in your body. Serotonin helps to release that happy, calm feeling throughout your body. In addition to regulating serotonin, eating this quick meal will also help to boost your amounts of vitamin D, which in turn can help regulate your mood as well.
