Here's the short article:
Here's the tl;dr version:
1. Smart carbohydrates
2. Vitamin C
3. Vitamin B6 for selenium (beans, peas, fish,eggs)
4. Vitamin E (nuts, chickpeas, eggs with yolk)
5. Vitamin D (eggs, dairy)
6. Omega 3 (flaxseeds, chia seeds, nuts, dark green leafy veggies)
8. Antioxidants (berries, tomato. broccoli, peppers)
9. Whole grains
That's one more great reason to nourish our bodies with the best healthy fare rather than junk food. Sometimes I think I want a greasy cheeseburger or a load of bad chocolate to make myself feel better. Turns out quality food is better for depression.

Thought I'd share my go-to song that ALWAYS gets me out of my funk. Yes, I ate too much chocolate on Valentine's Day. Yes, I skipped the gym and didn't give it my all when I was there. Yes ...mistakes I've made a few. But we learn from these things and we bounce right back. Stronger, even.
So here's the song I love. And I do mean love. By the way...please don't click the link if you don't want to see a chunky man in his underpants jump into a pool.
But I think you probably DO want to see that. Because they haven't yet built the man that'll keep any of us down.

Here is a new study that show a reduced risk of developing ALS for people who eat their brightly colored fruits and vegetables.
Since brain-wasting diseases run in my family, I will do ANYTHING to reduce my risk. So I play mind-teaser games, exercise and eat my veggies. I have been working on increasing to nine servings of fruits and vegetables on the strength of Dr. Terry Wahls' remarkable progress with her MS.
Of all the things I do to be healthy, eating a dish of berries each evening is definitely the most enjoyable!
