Food, it’s a necessary ingredient to life. Everyone knows it can affect your waistline but can it also affect how you think, act, and feel?  So is something you’re eating causing your bad moods? Many foods or food additives can cause chaos on our nervous system, giving you a case of the blues, feeling overly tired, anxious, or irritable. Even very small amounts of these foods can completely hijack your good mood, leaving you feeling down and out. Check out this list of 7 food ingredients that are ruining your mood.

1. White Flour

Everyone knows that white flour isn’t healthy, that’s nothing new. But did you know that avoiding white bread isn’t enough? Bleached white flour has found its way into other foods such as soups and salad dressings.  It’s used as a thickening agent.

Besides being nutritionally devoid of any substantive nutritional value, it causes you blood to make a high glucose content,  so that even a small amount can cause mood swings and make you feel irritable with hunger, even though you might have just eaten.
