It's true that chocolate can make us feel happy, but check out 4 other mood-lifting foods. 

 

 

  1. Oatmeal

    With soluble fiber, oats slow down carbohydrate absorption. This is especially important for someone trying to stabilize their blood sugar—which can affect your mood throughout the day.

  2. Fresh Fruit

    Most fresh fruits are full of fiber and complex carbohydrates, offering a steady source of energy. That's why eating a variety of fruits with breakfast can help power you through the morning—even on a Monday.

  3. Fish & Seafood

    The omega-3s found in fish like salmon and trout help your brain produce serotonin, a chemical linked to good moods.

  4. Milk

    It does a mood good. Both dairy and nondairy milks are fortified with vitamin D, which acts as a natural antidepressant. Cheers to that.
