9 Healthy Foods That Lift Your Mood

Sofrito Lovers,

Ever wish you could get rid of everyone in your life?  Not everyone, just the people that irritate you or stress you out, so yeah, everyone.  I can't help you snap them out of existence Thanos-style, but I can suggest some foods that will help you love humanity again.

When family, friends, co-workers, children, or random strangers drain the patience and happiness from your life, then turn to the Healthline article below.  Some Dark Chocolate can brighten your mood (because its full of feel-good compounds) or bananas, which helps to flood your brain with dopamine.  Slow digesting Oats will provide you an all-day sugar high, and anti-oxidant-rich berries will do the same.

Many people say that food is medicine, and I agree.  I'd like to add that food is also uplifting, emotionally freeing, and a delicious coping mechanism-just don't go crazy!  So while people, work, life, or random bad luck may get you down, that bowl of oatmeal with berries will make life tolerable and survivable.  That calming and joy-inducing dark chocolate candy bar will give you a moment of respite from an annoying and taxing world.

Read the article below and embrace the foods that will help you make it one meal at a time.  Go taste for yourself!  ¡Buen Provecho!
