Are you ready to boost your mood?

Eating the right foods can help maintain a healthy weight and activate physical and mental energy. The foods we eat significantly impact our mood and energy levels.


Carbohydrates often get a bad rap for being unhealthy, but they play a crucial role in maintaining a positive attitude. The brain synthesizes serotonin by synthesizing the amino acid tryptophan in most dietary proteins. Carbohydrates displace other amino acids, allowing more tryptophan to reach the brain and produce more serotonin. Fruits and vegetables are excellent sources of carbohydrates that are slowly digested and absorbed into the bloodstream.


Fats are also essential and shouldn't be eliminated. They make foods enjoyable and satisfying while keeping brain cell membranes supple and functioning. Foods such as omega-3 fatty acids, olives, nuts, seeds, avocados, and extra virgin olive oil can improve mood.


Proteins are essential for maintaining a high metabolism and providing the raw materials for neurotransmitters, including serotonin. Lean organic meats, poultry, fish, low-fat or fat-free dairy products, eggs, and legumes are all excellent protein sources.


Frozen options without added sauce are efficient and convenient when your favorite fruits and vegetables are out of season.
