Outsmart the Winter Blues with Foods!!

Potatoes contain a balanced blend of amino acids and minerals that prompts the brain to produce mood elevating serotonin. Feel happiness increase by up to 54% 30 minutes after eating.

Tuna cuts irritability by 42%. Tuna has generous portions of Omega-3 fatty acids that increase activity in the areas of the brain associated with emotional regulation and mood. Other smart fish are salmon, sardines, mackerel and trout.

Vanilla produces calming brain waves, even just breathing the aroma!! It helps reduce stress and induce relaxation in as little as 3 minutes.

Salsa contains capsaicin which can reverse gloomy moods by stimulating a rush of feel-good endorphins. Arriba!!!

Hot Cider reduces anxiety for about 76% of women within 5 minutes!! It triggers the trigeminal nerve and sends signals to the brain to lower blood pressure, slow the heart rate and release built –up muscle tension.

So for supper tonight I’m having tuna with some salsa and potatoes, for dessert hot cider with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!!
