Over the coming weeks, we will be at home a lot more and with that come all the added stresses along with all that is going is going on in the world – we really should try and keep our healthy eating on track as best we can.

As people stock up and panic buy all sorts of groceries, from tinned food to toilet paper, you also might be wondering how you will handle healthy eating during the next 21 days (or more.)

Please note that we are not saying now is the ideal time to focus on weight-loss or completely changing your eating habits for the better – for most of us, these times are uncertain and scary. But focusing on food as a pillar of energy and health and not as a crutch for emotions, is a good idea.

Without a vaccine, none of us can entirely eliminate our risk of contracting coronavirus, with experts saying that’s still 18 to 24 months away.

But eating as healthily as possible is important not only for our physical health but our psychological well-being, too. A healthy diet has been shown to reduce our risk of chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity, as well as depression and anxiety.

You don’t have to follow a particular diet, just avoid processed foods as they tend to be high in sugar.

The best foods for our mental health are generally the healthiest foods.

Complex carbohydrates, found in fruit, vegetables and whole grains, provide important nourishment for our brains as they slowly release energy, which also stabilizes our moods.

it’s also vital to look after our gut health, which a growing body of research shows has a remarkable impact on our mood and behaviour. Prebiotics and probiotics, found in fermented foods like kefir, tempeh, sauerkraut, kimchi and yoghurt can reduce inflammation, boost our moods and cognitive function.
