Foods That Make You Happy

(Townsquare Media)

Came across an article that lists the top foods that will make you happier.  For some people – fast food makes them happy, mainly because it’s so easy.  But a steady diet of it is not a good thing. 

So how do these particular foods make you happy?  They contain natural anti-depressants and they’re considered healthy.

Dark chocolate – it improves the flow of blood to the brain.  Just a small amount each day gives you a boost in concentration and mood.

Asparagus

 
 

It’s high in folate and tryptophan.  In most cases of depression, the patient has been found to be low in folate.  Asparagus corrects that.  And tryptophan triggers the production of serotonin in the brain – a mood stabilizer.
