According to, the blahs can bring you down, but  there are some things you can do with your diet that might help.

According to “The Prescription for Nutritional Healing, 4th edition”:

1. Eat a diet that includes plenty of raw vegetables and fruits, with soybeans and soy products, whole grains, seeds, nuts, brown rice, millet, and legumes.

2. If you’re anxious, eat more complex carbohydrates. If you’d like more energy, eat protein meals containing essential fatty acids. Try more omega-3‘s, like eggs, fish and flax, at least twice a week.

3. Omit wheat products as gluten has been linked to depression.

4. Avoid all products with aspartame which blocks the formation of serotonin, our feel-good neurotransmitters.

5. Avoid foods high in saturated fats as they interfere with blood flow and lowers circulation in the brain.

6. Avoid all forms of sugar, including natural sweeteners like honey, molasses and fruit juice.

7. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and processed foods.

8. Keep your mind active, get plenty of rest and regular exercise.”
