Your energy is depleting, the mind is obsessing over food, and you are becoming more short-tempered by the minute. All signs point to feeling “hangry”.

Hangry: When you are so hungry that your lack of food causes you to become angry, frustrated or both. (An amalgam of hungry and angry.)

Here are 3 easy ways you can avoid hunger-induced crankiness:

1. Eat More Often.   This doesn’t mean consume more food through out the day. It means that you should eat smaller meals more frequently. This is especially true for busy people; you get lost in the commotion of the day and realize you haven’t had anything to eat in the last 5 hours.
Low blood sugar= headaches, anxiety, and agitation.

2. Protein.   Protein helps you feel satisfied for longer periods of time. When you eat something made of simple carbs (candy, bagels, soda pop) you most likely notice your hunger comes back pretty quick. Healthy fats are also a great option (avocados, nuts, seeds, yogurt, etc.)

3. Eat happy foods.   Some of the most amazing research going on right now is testing the effects certain foods have on your mood. For example, cinnamon has been shown to improve concentration and for positivity, produce is on the top of the list.

I hope this helps!
