Foodtastic Friday: Happy Meals

pathmedical Health and Wellness

If you need a little pick-me-up after a rough day, there are some foods that could help you out of your emotional rut. Therefore, without much ado, we’ll give you some foodtastic ideas that could boost your mood back into “happy” territory.

 

Dark Chocolate

Satisfy your sweet tooth if you’re feeling a bit down in the dumps. This sweet treat produces endorphins and pleasure chemicals within the brain. Serotonin is also released upon consumption of dark chocolate. A little bit of chocolate never hurt, as long as it’s consumed in moderation.

Greek Yogurt

Not only does Greek yogurt give you a kick of calcium, it also sends signals to the neurotransmitters within your brain. Once these neurotransmitters are triggered, it allows for happier emotions. Also, the boost of calcium results in less anxiety, depression and impaired memory.

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile has properties that help to calm the mind to put it into rest or sleep mode. For years this herb has been used in traditional medicine. It helps to calm anxiety issues and once the mind develops a calm rhythm, then it encourages positive energy.
