The saying, 'good food equals good mood', has more meaning than we may realise.

Processing refers to changing food from its natural state, as Harvard Health explains. Typically, salt, oil, sugar, or other substances are added to processed foods. Canned foods, such as canned fish or canned vegetables, and fruits in syrup, are all examples of processed foods.
