boost your mood with your food!

FIGHT DEPRESSION!

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

Walnuts: full of heart healthy fat & protein
They contain omega 3s, are the leading component in brain health
making you smile from the inside out

Salmon: super high in beneficial fats,
stimulates brain power when you need a boost of positivity

Believe it or not LOW FAT DAIRY can lift your spirits too!
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!

Green Tea: an antioxidant dense beverage that will leave you mellow & perky.
This tea contains an amino acid known to trigger anti-stress reactions!
Why not start your day with a #antibitchmode


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.

I FIND THAT THE TRICK IS TO TREAT YOURSELF RIGHT
NOTICE WHEN YOU ARE FEELING A BIT DOWN
TEND TO YOUR MOOD WITHOUT JUDGEMENT
ALLOW YOURSELF THE TIME TO NURTURE WHAT IT IS THAT YOU ARE FEELING

ADD THESE STIMULATING FOODS TO YOUR MENU ON THOSE DAYS

AND REMEMBER
ALWAYS BE GENTLE WITH YOURSELF
BECAUSE IF YOU ARE NOT
WHO IS GOING TO BE?
