The 10 Foods That Immediately Improve Your Mood
It being Monday, you're probably in a gross mood. It happens. Well, I'm trying to find a solution and be proactive. Doctors at Harvard have figured out the best foods to instantly improve your mood. It's because they trigger the right chemicals in your brain. So maybe I need to reassess how I'm looking at snacking, or something.
When I think of "comfort food" it's usually things like fried chicken or gallon jugs of ice cream . . . but I shouldn't. I KNOW. In fact, foods like that spike your blood sugar and usually just make you feel WORSE.
Doctors at Harvard have figured out the 10 best foods to instantly improve your mood. It's because they trigger the right chemicals in your brain. Check 'em out . . .
1. Pumpkin seeds.
2. Dark, leafy greens.
4. Carrots and celery.
7. Whole grains, like oatmeal or brown rice.
8. Red peppers, kiwi fruit, and other foods with high vitamin C.
10. Dark chocolate.
Okay, I'm on board with most of those. Flaxseed, though? Maybe if it was covered in dark chocolate. There you go - a double whammy! I can't see myself snacking on Kale or whatever, though.
