A diet consisting largely of junk foods can cause one to be moody and irritable, and conversely, there are certain foods that act as anti-depressants, boost your mood, and reduce stress.

Leafy greens such as Swiss chard, kale and spinach

Be sure to incorporate these foods into your diet, aiming to maintain a healthy, balanced diet of whole foods. For recipe ideas, check out our Healthy Recipes category.

The good news is there is no need to go to extremes and completely cut out 'unhealthy' foods, it's more important that you have a healthy attitude towards food. Life, and food, are meant to be enjoyed. If you can't resist the siren call of a piece of decadent chocolate mud cake, then don't. Eat it, enjoy the hell out of it, do not feel guilty, then go back to the healthy whole foods. Perhaps try the 90/10 rule in your daily diet (90% healthy and 10% indulgence).

Food plays a major role in health and happiness, or a lack thereof, so it is imperative to address your eating habits, and review on a regular basis.
