Nutritionist Rob Hobson says you can eat your way to a better mood in the morning if you have the right food and drinks first thing.  

Published on Daily Mail, he lists his top 6 foods and drinks to eat in the morning to boost your mood.

1. Raw Cacao

 

Nutritionist Rob Hobson told Daily Mail you can eat your way to a better mood in the morning if you have the right food and drinks - including raw cacao, the purest form of cocoa (pictured)

Yes, you can eat chocolate for breakfast! Only chocolate in its purest forms.

Raw cacao is the purest form of cocoa and is a very rich source of magnesium, which is required for many different functions in the body, including converting food into energy and blood glucose control. Studies also suggest this mineral may be useful for women who suffer with PMS symptoms associated with mood.

Raw cacao is also a source of the mild mood enhancer phenethylamine (PEA). Just one tablespoon provides 18 per cent of the recommended daily intake, and can be added to smoothies, porridge or homemade energy balls.

2. Eggs

 

Try starting your day with an egg. They not only high in protein, which can help to maintain fullness through to lunch, but also contain significant levels of 13 other key vitamins and minerals.

3. Oats

 

These whole grains are loaded with fibre that helps promote good digestion, as well as aiding long term health by reducing the risk of heart disease, diabetes and high cholesterol.

4. Melons

 

Eating watery fruits such as melons is a good way to hydrate and add vitamin C to the diet. Try for breakfast or as a hydrating mid-morning snack.

5. Live Yoghurt

 

Yoghurt is great for breakfast and can be topped with lots of healthy ingredients including fruit, nuts and seeds.

6. Orange Juice

 

A glass of juice is a great start to the day and provides a lovely dose of vitamin C, which is essential to help maintain a healthy immune system.
