May is a great month to be mindful of food and your mood.
Is sugar making you crabby?
Whether or not you’ve got a sweet tooth, you may be taking in a lot of sugar on a daily basis. Other than the obvious places like desserts, there can also be loads of sugar in beverages and condiments. The best thing you can do to keep your sugar intake at a reasonable level is to pay attention to nutrition labels. A good guideline is no more than 5 grams of sugar per serving.
Take note of your mood after eating a sugary food. Once the sugar high wears off, how do you feel? Tired, irritable, unmotivated? You may notice a connection between your sugar intake and your mood. Try cutting down on sugar and see if that helps stabilize your mood.
