Our diet is extremely important to our bodies, as it can influence and control our physical and mental wellbeing and can also affect how we look and feel, or how if we have acne or bloating. It can even control our emotional state.
Foods like spinach, blueberries, and avocados are especially good for us and also give us a renewed awareness and an energized feeling. Skipping meals or snacking on junk food due to stress or a hectic schedule is a surefire way to send your insulin levels out of control, can put unnecessary pressure on your liver, and ultimately change your mood.
