If you've ever gone through a bad breakup or career stall, only to end up a few pounds heavier, then you know as well as anyone that our mood and our eating habits are inextricably intertwined. When we feel down, we often try to give ourselves a boost with refined carbs, sugar, and fried foods. And it works, for a while — until we're left feeling bloated, unhappy, and worse than before.
Fortunately, there are just as many healthy foods that can make you feel better and fend of the blues, too. From fatty fish to your favorite fruits, make sure you're starting every day with your best, happiest, and most optimistic foot forward with these mood-boosting foods.
