The foods you put in your body reflect and affect your mood, so if you’re feeling stressed, anxious, or cranky, dig into foods that will help create a healthier, happier you.

No more feeding into your problems.

Incorporating foods that have all different vitamins, antioxidants, and Omega-3 fatty acids will help improve your mood.

Instead of going for those comfort foods when feeling upset or even excited, go for a daily dosage of healthy foods that will make you feel better and boost the excitement.

Turn that frown upside down and incorporate those foods to make a happier you!

1. Nuts

Nuts help with stress relief, heart health, and brain health.

For example, walnuts are rich in serotonin.

Serotonin is a chemical in the brain that is related to and creates happiness and calmness.2

Nuts in general have a significant amount of this feel-good substance than non-nut products.

Eating a handful of almonds will also boost your mood.

Almonds are high in tyrosine, one of the building blocks for the making of dopamine so it could help your mood.

A serving of nuts a day will keep the sadness a way and is a food to make a happier you.

2. Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt will help improve your state of mind as well as your immune system.

It is truly a wonder food.

The probiotics in Greek yogurt are what helps to boost that mood of yours.2

Whether it be making an onion dip for your vegetables or mixing berries into the yogurt for breakfast, it is loaded with calcium and has a lot more protein than your average yogurt.

This will help the brain release neurotransmitters that can aid your mood and happiness.

3. Dark Chocolate

If you’re a chocolate lover, you’ll be just as happy as I was to hear that dark chocolate, in moderation, is healthy and will lift your spirits.2

I must admit this is one of my personal favorites.

Chocolate is not only full of antioxidants it can also reduce anxiety.

Satisfy that sweet tooth with some dark chocolate so that way you’re fulfilling the want for sweets as well as boosting that frame of mind.
