For starters, protein is a great way to fight those low points, or monthly hormonal lulls,
while you are at it trypophan works wonders!
I KNOW, I KNOW, I DONT EXPECT YOU TO BE SITTING IN A PILE OF TISSUES, CRYING, RIPING THE MEAT OFF OF A TURKEY LEG.....BUT IT MIGHT HELP.
HERE IS A LIST OF ALL THE MOOD BOOSTING FOODS THAT YOU CAN ADD INTO YOUR DAILY LIFE TO KEEP YOU MELLOW & HEALTHY

They contain omega 3s, are the leading component in brain health
making you smile from the inside out

NO that doesn't mean Ben & Jerry's...though you might think it is helping in the moment.
Dairy: contains calcium & vit D that aid simulate relaxation & well being
Complex Carbohydrates: cause the release of serotonin that will elevate a depression session.
Remember to limit your intake, we all know that a carb load can lead anyone into a dietary rant!

FINALLY my favorite, and one that I feel the need to defend regularly
Dark Chocolate: another food that will release serotonin to help lift your spirits.
one small piece at a time, since it tends to be high on the calorie scale.

ADD THESE STIMULATING FOODS TO YOUR MENU ON THOSE DAYS
