7 Foods That Fight Depression

1. Grass-fed beef

Grass-fed beef has less fat and more heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids than grain-fed cattle.

2. Greek Yogurt

Calcium deficiency can cause anxiety, melancholy, irritability, memory loss, and poor thinking. Greek yogurt has more protein than plain yogurt, making it a great slimming snack.

3. Tomatoes

Lycopene, an antioxidant that protects the brain and fights depression-causing inflammation, is abundant in tomatoes.

4. Coconut

Coconut is rich in medium-chain triglycerides, which boost mood and cognitive health. 

Coconut is often found in high-calorie pastries, but you don't have to eat macaroons to get your dose.

5. Red Peppers

Red bell peppers, which are allowed to ripen on the vine and not harvested green, have more than double the vitamin C and up to 8 times the vitamin A of their undeveloped counterparts.

6. Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds resemble crisp Prozac Helper nuggets. They're one of the best suppliers of tryptophan, which helps your brain make serotonin.

7. Blueberry Juice

Dark-colored berries reduce fat cell development by up to 73%, which boosts mood. Berries also have high vitamin C content.
