Fruits and Veggies Good for Emotional Health

March 7th, 2013 Comments Off on Fruits and Veggies Good for Emotional Health

When it comes to feeding our families, it is easy to become overwhelmed with so much focus on gluten-free foods, food allergies, organic food choices, etc. Separating the chaff from the wheat (pun intended) can be quite a challenge. What a relief to know that sticking to a healthy, clean, and green regimen is still supported by scientific research as noted in Many apples a day keep the blues at bay.

As this report shows, there is a strong day-to-day relationship between more positive mood and higher fruit and vegetable consumption, but not other foods. That makes it easy to shop for your family, easy to plan meals, and easy to cook! In the early days of processed foods, they were seen as a convenience. Now that we understand the harmful effects of eating a diet heavy in processed foods, they don’t seem so convenient anymore.  Thank goodness for natural foods! After all, what could be more convenient than fresh fruits and vegetables?

However, some people don’t like fruits and vegetables. In the past four years, I have had the pleasure of working with more than a few clients whose desired behavior change was to learn to like fruits and vegetables. As adults we usually eat and enjoy more foods than we did as children, but that early childhood programing can often keep us from enjoying a wide variety of foods. Hypnosis can help by re-programming your mind, and your taste buds!

As parents, and grandparents, it’s important to remember to feed our children fresh fruits and veggies at a young age,  allowing them to develop a taste for what is healthy. Be a good role model for your children. Keep a fresh supply of fruits and vegetables on hand at all times, and eat them yourself. Children imitate what they learn at home. Eat fresh, clean, and green!
