It can be easier than you think to get a little boost to your mood, NATURALLY...
Look to whole foods rich in Vitamin B6, Vitamin E, Iron, Magnesium, Fiber to balance blood sugar, and amino acids. These nutrients are known to soothe stress, support neurotransmitters, fuel the brain, and mitigate anxiety. A few delicious and accessible whole foods to consider:
- Dark Leafy Greens
- Sweet Potatoes
- Nuts like Almond & Walnuts
- Sunflower Seeds
- Chia Seeds
- Fermented Foods
- Bell Peppers
And our absolute favorite: DARK CHOCOLATE.
Dark chocolate is derived from the cacao bean. Cacao (as compared to Cocoa) is minimally processed to retain its nutritionally dense properties, such as the natural component, phenylethylamine, which is known as the "bliss chemical," boosting our endorphins. Opt for chocolate higher in Cacao % to reap the most mood-boosting benefits.
We get our mood boost from our Mint Chocolate Cookie Mix, thanks to the Raw Cacao Powder, and our 70% Dark Chocolate Chips (sweetened only by coconut sugar)!
