Beauty @ Bedtime – Good Mood Foods.

Good Mood Foods

Omega 3s

This can be anything from salmon to mackerel. Omega 3s are really good for brain health, which is where mood stability comes from. You can find them in anything that boasts ‘healthy fat,’ like nuts, avocados, eggs, and oatmeal.

Vitamin D
This is a big one, especially if you’re not getting outside enough. This is  my number one when it comes to mood. You can find these in non-dairy milks; almond, soy, and coconut milks are all fortified with vitamin D.  Supplement it with calcium and protein for proper absorption.

Anti-Inflammatories

Ginger, turmeric, and cinnamon are all going to protect the body from inflammation—which can, in turn, increase circulation and immune health. Incorporating the seasonings into your cooking is easy! Get a spice rack, and start getting adventurous in your recipe selection. Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cooking are especially high in anti-inflammatory ingredients.

Probiotics
Anything that’s going to help with digestion is going to help your mind-body balance. If you have poor digestion or undiagnosed food sensitivity, that really impacts your mood. The more that you have whole foods that are naturally higher in fiber, it’s going to help digestion and provide you with all those nutrients.  It’s best to get them from your food, from yogurt,  or fermented food, but if you don’t have access to that, having a good probiotic pill would be great.

Chocolate
Dark chocolate has compounds to elevate your serotonin levels, in addition to being a good source of antioxidants. Also it just tastes really good so there’s a level of emotional and mental elevation there because it’s comforting.
