7 ways to boost your mood with food

Happy taste buds, happy tummy, happy you!

1. Have a leisurely breakfast

Set your alarm a little earlier to enjoy a delicious, leisurely breakfast that will put a smile on your face from the moment you wake up.

2. Snack happy (and healthy)

Avoid a mid-morning slump by pre-preparing a tasty, Budget-friendly snack.

3. Enjoy a lovely lunch

Make lunch an occasion with these colourful meals that will tide you over 'til dinnertime. Whether you up your sandwich game with a Vietnamese banh mi or eat the rainbow with a veggie sushi bowl, banish soggy sandwiches and give yourself a reason to smile!

4. Try something new

Cook yourself out of a rut! Enjoy the process of cooking and trying something new, like an exotic fusion dish or a plant-based meal.

5. Get nostalgic

Bring back happy childhood memories with a healthy twist on classic puds. Rice pudding and bread & butter pudding are easy to make, and use ingredients you'll probably already have at home.

6. Get your bake on

Baking is a feel-good activity the whole family can enjoy. And what better way to put a smile on everyone's face than the aroma of freshly baked cookies or brownies?

7. Enjoy a bedtime treat

Slip into a blissful sleep with a mug of something warm before bed. Why not team a hot drink with a meditation in the WW app?
