Fortified Cereals

Cure your crankiness in the morning with fortified cereals, specifically those fortified with vitamin B6. It’s been shown to reduce crankiness, irritability, and mood swings thanks to its neurological effects. Start your day with just 1 cup of fortified cereal, such as wheat bran, to give your mood the boost it needs.

Macadamia Nuts

Macadamia nuts are a perfect remedy for when you’re feeling anxious throughout the day. They’re rich in omega-3s, which can help reduce anxiety by keeping stress-causing hormones cortisol and adrenaline in check. Macadamia nuts make a great snack when you need a lift at work or when you have kids in the car. They’re so big and filling, you only need to eat 8 nuts a day!

Bananas

Bananas aren’t only a nice addition to your smoothie, they’re also a tasty way to drive your blues away. Low levels of serotonin are associated with sadness and depression. Eating one banana a day allows your body to produce more serotonin, leaving both your brain and your taste buds happy.
