There are some foods that are very healthy and that also have antidepressant power, these foods have properties that make you happier. In case you are wondering what these wonderful foods are, read on, we will see foods that make you happy .

Although the taste in food is subjective, since everyone is happy to taste their favorite food and it is almost always different in each one, some foods will make us all happier, regardless of your tastes for food.

# 10 Bitter Chocolate

Well, who is not happy with chocolate? Honestly, I can’t think of too many people who aren’t happy with a chocolate bar. But in addition to being delicious, it has great benefits for us, one of the most important is that it helps regulate blood flow in the brain, which improves our mood and our ability to concentrate. A little bit of chocolate will make you feel more energetic and vibrant.

# 9 Mussels

It is incredible how many benefits mussels have for us. They provide large amounts of vitamins, which helps strengthen brain cells and keep us active. They also provide protein and iodine, which helps regulate the thyroid , this keeps us in a good mood and at a healthy weight for our body, as well as zinc and selenium provided by mussels. And if to all this we add that they are low in calories and fat, you will surely want me to give you a recipe for them, because a delicious recipe is mussels in white wine , try it.

# 8 Blue potatoes

The blue potatoes are excellent fighters against depression. Not only do they need antioxidants that help reduce brain inflammation directly linked to depression, but they also increase STM and help regulate the thyroid . Although they are somewhat difficult to find, but there search is worth it.

# 7 Asparagus

Low levels of folate (folic acid) and tryptophan (an essential aminoalkanoic acid in human nutrition) are directly associated with depression.Fortunately, asparagus provides both of these in large quantities, which makes us feel calm and collected. Have you tried the asparagus soup ? It is very tasty,

# 6 Chard

This vegetable contains a lot of magnesium, this property is vital for our biochemical reactions as well as to increase the energy level in our body. Studies conducted a few years ago show that low magnesium levels are directly related to depression. So try recipes like spinach and chard tart , you will surely feel very good after savoring it.

# 5 Coconut

Coconut promotes good mood and takes care of brain health, how? Well, through the triglycerides that it contributes to our body. A very healthy food that makes us all happy.

# 4 Tomatoes

Tomatoes have an antioxidant called lycopene, lycopene helps eliminate inflammation within the brain and protects it. Consuming tomato with olive oil we ensure a greater absorption of this antioxidant that does us so well.

#3 eggs

Eggs help us to have energy, the sum of their characteristics gives us enough energy to have a full day. The egg contains zinc, vitamin B, iodine, omega 3, protein and fatty acid, all this makes them a necessary food for our diet. Do not forget to incorporate it into your recipes.

# 2 Honey

This golden nectar is a superb food for our health. Honey contains kaempferol and quercetin, which help us avoid depression and keep our brain healthy. In addition, by substituting sugar for honey, you can also avoid being overweight.

# 1 Greek yogurt

Greek yogurt provides calcium, even more calcium than milk provides, this helps us to stimulate neurotransmitters in the brain that make us feel happy. It also provides a lot of protein and this helps us with the loss of excess weight.
