6 Foods Happy People Put In Grocery Carts

Eat to beat depression by stocking up on these six grocery items, each containing vitamins and nutrients proven to make you less irritable, more alert, and all around happier:

  1. Mushrooms: Contain vitamin D, low levels of which have been linked to depression, chronic pain, headaches and heart disease.
  2. Whipped butter: Butter makes everyone happy, but because the whipped kind is less dense, it contains fewer calories.
  3. Wild salmon, trout or mackerel: They’re the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids, critical for warding off depression.
  4. Chickpeas: A great source of vitamin B6, essential to cognitive development and a healthy brain.
  5. Dark-green leafy vegetables: Contain folate, a B vitamin that may also help reduce symptoms of depression.
  6. Pumpkin seeds: A hugely underrated mood booster, these contain large quantities of magnesium.
