These foods improve your mood!

Food definitely affects your mood, mostly in a good way. These foods ensure that you feel good about yourself and that your body stays healthy!

  1. Wild salmon

Many people who suffer from a low mood are said to get too little Omega 3 fatty acids. So, it never hurts to supplement these fatty acids. For example, by eating a piece of wild salmon every now and then, inflammation will decrease and your brain can function better. This also reduces the risk of depression.

2. Walnuts

Nuts are full of healthy fats. A handful of walnuts is therefore an excellent filling and healthy snack.

3. Spinach

Dark green leafy vegetables, including spinach, are high in folic acid. This vitamin naturally works well against stress. Avocados, beets, and broccoli also contain sufficient folic acid.

4. Blueberries

Blueberries are packed with antioxidants, which are necessary for your body to function properly. Research shows that eating enough antioxidants can reduce depression and anxiety symptoms. Blueberries are easy to put in your yogurt or oatmeal in the morning.

5. Coconut oil

You may already be aware of it, but healthy fats are very good for improving your mood. Your energy level rises as a result and there’s also a smaller chance that you develop depressive symptoms. Coconut oil contains healthy fats and is very suitable for frying and/or using as a substitute for (cream) butter.

6. Lentils

You need proteins to balance your hormones and to keep your nervous system working properly. If you don’t get enough protein, you’ll notice that your immune system works less well and you’re more likely to suffer from mood swings. Lentils are low in fat, but they do contain a lot of fiber and protein.

7. Kefir

Kefir is a fermented drink made from water or (vegetable) milk. Kefir is rich in probiotics and therefore also ensures a healthy intestinal flora. You may have heard it before, but there’s a strong relationship between your gut health and the health of your brain. If your intestines function properly, you’ll be less likely to suffer from mood swings and fatigue. If you don’t like kefir, you can also choose to take a probiotic supplement daily.

  1. I would add all the fermented foods like sauerkraut, apple cider vinegar and kombucha – they make a huge difference in digestion. And less digestion issues – better mood πŸ˜‰
