Foods To Help You Beat the Autumn Blues

With autumn here and the days getting shorter, it’s easy to “Fall” into a case of the blues. With the colder weather upon us, we have some inexpensive and unexpected ways to beat the blahs, with foods that contain ingredients to help relieve anxiety and depression.

EAT HUMMUS: A NATURAL HAPPY FOOD (REALLY!)

FACT: Studies show that chickpeas and tahini, the major ingredients in hummus, contain tryptophan, an amino acid building block of the neurotransmitter serotonin. Low serotonin levels are strongly connected with “mood disorders” like anxiety and minor depression. Chick peas and tahini also contain Vitamin B6 and Omega, both of which have a strong positive effect on mood. So…it’s no myth: hummus is a feel-good food. While your supermarket carries hummus, the best hummus is FRESH, preservative-free, organic hummus – easily found around the city at Nanoosh Mediterranean Bars and Counters , a health quick service restaurant chain in New York City.

MUNCH ON MANGOES

The nutritional benefits of a mango are sweeter than its taste. Exhaustion is one of the many culprits of depression. If you feel low in energy and are constantly tired, mangoes can help. Since this fruit is rich in vitamin content, it provides the body with strength and stamina. Mangoes can also improve appetite and build resistance against diseases that ravage the body during flu season.

ENERGIZE WHILE HYDRATING: FEVER

FEVER-BOTTLES
Energy drinks can be a helpful hydration supplement and help alleviate the blues by decreasing fatigue and revving up the metabolism. Some newer choices are actually healthy and based in herbal formulas. For instance, FEVER is rich in anti-oxidants, is heart-healthy, works to detoxify, contains lots of green tea, and has also even been shown to promote healthy bones!
