Don’t stress this holiday season! We know that’s near impossible, so do yourself a favor and eat well. Over time your body and brain will reward you with better physical and mental health. We hope the following lists will help guide you in making the best choices to incorporate into your diet and what you should eliminate.

Foods to stick to:
Dark Purple fruits and veggies - Dark berries, pomegranates, red grapes, beets, red cabbage.
Dark Chocolate - full of serotonin, a chemical that acts as an antidepressant. Look for 70% dark chocolate or higher.
Dark leafy greens - Kale, Spinach, and other dark leafy greens are high in folate. Folate deficiency has been linked to the development of depression and dementia
Omega - 3 Fat - Salmon, tuna, walnuts, flaxseeds
Tea & Coffee - one or two cups of tea or coffee can boost your mood!

Foods to eliminate:
Artificial sweeteners - studies have shown these sweeteners can block the body’s cell receptors from serotonin, leading to irritability and frequent headaches.
Sugar - can have an immediate feel-good effect, but too much of it over the long run can mess with the bodies hormone balance and mood regulation.
Processed Food - There’s evidence that preservatives within processed foods can overstimulate the brain, causing feelings of moodiness and restlessness. #FitnessFridays
