It contains magnesium, which is great for calming and controlling blood pressure. It also helps curb depression and prevent mood swings by balancing out your sugar levels. Have it twice a week in salads or as a juice.

 

2. TOMATOES

They help your body produce mood-enhancing chemicals, like serotonin and dopamine, which help to make you feel happier. Snack on cherry tomatoes or have roma tomatoes with your salad a few times a week. If you have them three times a week, eat at least ¾ of a cup each time. Have about ⅓ of a cup each time if you eat them daily.
