Good Mood Food to Beat the Blues

If you’re struggling with the winter blues, then take a look at our list of good mood food to bring a smile back to your face and a spring to your step.

The food you eat can have a direct impact on your mood. If you’re feeling low, it might be because your levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin are low, as this “good mood” chemical contributes to feelings of well-being.

Here’s a list of some of the top foods to boost serotonin levels:

Turkey
Sunflower seeds
Cottage cheese
Asparagus
Pineapple
Tofu
Spinach
Bananas
Raw nuts

So next time you’re feeling a bit down, why not have a turkey sandwich, as turkey is way ahead of the others in terms of boosting serotonin levels or try a handful of sunflower seeds or almonds as a pick-me-up?
