1. Food and Mood

While studying the way Israeli judges pass their sentences, Jonathan Levav found that the favorableness of judicial rulings were high after breakfast, then decreased in leniency as the day progressed, only to spike back up after lunch (Corbin, 2011). Serotonin is the neurotransmitter involved in the positive boost of mood after a meal. Being both catalyzed and synthesized from the proteins in your meal, and secreted by the brainIt’s interesting to note what is written in Scripture, that after Christ fed the multitude, their mood changed.

They came to Him for food, and once their bellies were filled, their tongues made haste to proclaim Him King, even by force.

If you think that what you eat doesn’t affect how you think, think again.
