help you, how about just eat some foods that will boost your mood?!?! Win/Win :)

Tracy's Treat: 5 Foods to Get Happy
1. Dark Leafy Greens and Algae
Greens: Swiss Chard, Spinach, Kale, Arugula, Broccoli Rabe, Beet Greens, and Bok Choy
Algae: Chlorella and Spirulina
How To Eat More: Have everyday! If you don't want to eat this many greens just buy a greens powder and put in a smoothie. I recommend putting Cholerella and Spirulina in a Smoothie.
How To Eat More: Buy lightly salted dry roasted OR buy raw and roast 200-250 degrees with olive oil and sea salt for about 20-40 minutes. Have a handful a day. Or Try some almond milk in your smoothie.
3. Organic Eggs
How To Eat More: Please get organic or you are eating antibiotics and hormones that will wreck havoc on your health and mood. One Starbucks latte costs as much as a dozen organic eggs that will feed you for 1-2 weeks! Try eggs in the morning or hard boil and have for a mid-morning protein boost.
4. Raw Local Honey
How To Eat More: This is natures vaccine and helps balance blood sugar and heal your gut. Go get some local honey that is raw (i/e not liquid but more solid form)
5. Coconut Oil
How To Eat More: Boosts Metabolism and Adrenals! Try to cook with this or put a spoonful in your smoothie. Try to get organic unrefined.
