Okay, not really… But, let’s be honest here - are you really angry when you’re eating a delicious meal? Of course not! Especially when it comes to meals that are scientifically proven mood boosters. Ever heard of them?

While most foods tend to make you smile, depending on the taste and quality, there are certain foods that physically make you feel lighter and happier. Curious to know what foods you should be adding to your cart to get those extra added endorphins?

Here are some foods that guarantee to boost your mood:

Canned Fish

Canned fish are rich in omega-3s which are a key ingredient in preventing cancer, reducing acne, and improving your overall mood.


Zinc can be found in cashew nuts, which plays a major role in our body’s response to stress and anxiety.


To make sure you start your day off on the right foot, have a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast! The carbs found in oatmeal help to increase your blood sugar levels, which also helps increase your serotonin levels too.

Green Tea

Green tea is a powerful tool that helps level out your mental health. Given that it is a powerful source of antioxidants, this helps fight anxiety and depression. Having a cup a day can go a long way!


Turmeric has many amazing benefits, but with one being its anti inflammatory qualities. This alone can help ease anxiety in the body. Try having a turmeric latte in the morning to help start your day on a brighter note.

…And so much more!

Who would have thought the cure to your blues can be found in the fridge and pantry!
