Eggs

 
 

Eggs – they have lots of protein and moderate amounts of Zinc, Vitamin B, Iodine, Omega-3 Fatty acids. They keep you fuller longer and a study showed that people who ate eggs for breakfast lost more weight than people who ate bagels and donuts for breakfast.

Asparagus

 
 

Asparagus – high in folate and tryptophan. Low levels of folate in the body are linked to depression. Tryptophan helps the body produce serotonin – a mood stabilizer.

Greek Yogurt

 
 

Greek yogurt – has lots of calcium – more than milk and calcium is good for your brain. The way it’s described is it releases neurotransmitters that’ll make you happy. And Greek yogurt has more protein than regular yogurt.
