What is better than food to fight unhappiness and that light sense of depression typical mondays and winter? Apparentley this coming Monday the 19th January is supposed to be the most depressing day of the year. Either you belive in this or not we have to acknoledge that Monday is always the least favourite day of the week and in winter time everything is much more difficult. The best and fun way to fight this is definitely with food. So here are 5 ingredients you might add to your diet in the next 2 days and boost your Monday for a change.
TURKEY stimulates serotonine production and helps you to feel better. Here's a recipe for you
WALNUTS are rich in omega 3 and for this reason they lessen the symptoms of depression
WHOLEWEAT PASTA will increase your serotonine level and if you combine it with walnut sauce it's even yummy. Check the recipe here.
Fatty fish like SALMON, MAKEREL and TUNA are the highest source of omega 3. Here in Scotland the salmon is the best ever, so why not to indulge in this old fashioned but very tasty and fun recipe?
Last but not least LOW FAT DAIRY products are rich in vitamin D, calcium and peptides that have the power to induce relaxation and well being. Instead of giving you a recipe I'd rahter reccomend to produce your own yogurth. I've been doing it since my daughter started eating and never stopped. it's healthy, cheap and you can make it in every way you like it
