29 Foods and Herbs to Boost Creativity

What we eat can affect our creative energies. Processed foods high in trans fats, excessive sodium and sugar, as well as artificial ingredients, can drain us of creativity. Those foods can leave us feeling foggy, uninspired and downright bored, not to mention lethargic, sick and disease-prone.

In the short amount of time we have here on earth, "I'm bored" seems to be one of the harshest ways to spend a precious, fleeting moment. While mustering the energy to redecorate the house, finally take wakeboarding lessons or write that novel might be too daunting for a short holiday weekend, that doesn't mean our creative urges have to go unexplored.

In fact, we don't need to undertake major projects to live truly creative lives. It's actually fairly simple to infuse some originality and flare into otherwise mundane tasks. It's all about getting in—and staying in—the creative mood. From washing the dishes to making lunch—every moment is an opportunity for a twist of… awesome.  Whether that's singing and dancing while we clean the house or something much more permanent like creating a piece of art, thinking outside of the box is a fulfilling and healthy part of the human experience.

Give some of these healthy creativity-boosting foods a try and see if they don't inspire you to make every moment a living art project infused with inspiration, clarity and masterful ingenuity.
