How to avoid winter overcoming our mood thanks to a balanced diet

Between all the periods of the year, winter is probably the least expected by anyone.

So much cold and little light can be the main causes, but it is also the period in which any worker is harassed by workloads, in which possible diversions are reduced to the minimum terms and that in which one is less in the open air.

In short, winter is certainly not a source of good humor. Now, however, we have indications on how to deal with this delicate phase of the year without falling into sadness. In a study conducted by Dr. Kellow, a well-known expert in the food sector, and reported in her publication "Life and energy", conducted by Astra Ricerche, she identified the perfect foods to counteract the pout and live these three months full of energy .

  • Almonds
    Almonds are one of the essential foods to face the coldest months of the year. A portion of about 28 grams supports the body giving it the amount of fiber needed to reach the end of the day, as well as giving a feeling of strong satiety. They also help keep blood sugar levels under control, limiting the Winter Blues phenomenon and its consequences, such as irritability, fatigue and poor concentration.
  • The eggs
    Eggs are a fundamental part of our diet, because they allow the body to take vitamin D. Usually, our body produces it autonomously thanks to the rays of the sun, but during the winter these are not powerful enough to trigger this mechanism. Moreover, even vitamin B12, contained in eggs, is essential, since it allows us to maintain an adequate psychic balance.
  • Whole grains
    Whole grains are another great food to fight bad mood. Starchy foods, in fact, stimulate the release of insulin, which has incredible humoral effects on the brain.
  • Spinaches
    Spinach is an incredible source of iron, an essential mineral for maintaining a constant energy level within the body. The absence of this, in fact, is one of the main causes that make us feel constantly tired even when we sleep enough. Furthermore, folates and vitamin C also help fight energy loss.
  • The water
    Finally, water is another of the foods that, in winter, are more undervalued, leading us to a more severe dehydration than we can accuse in the summer. In fact, not taking an adequate quantity of liquids can lead to tiredness and poor concentration.
