http://positivetranceformations.com.au/blog/foods-for-moods/ The body–mind link is undeniable, and what we eat can affect our moods. Eating to make ourselves feel better can become a problem when it becomes comfort eating or food addiction, but eating to restore low blood sugar levels can be a simple solution for beating stress and feeling better. So can eating foods that are rich in tryptophan, the amino acid needed to build serotonin, the brain chemical that makes us relax and feel peaceful. Chocolate (in moderation – 50 g of dark chocolate daily) is an excellent source of tryptophan but there are many other common and delicious foods that are also good sources of tryptophan.
