Surprising Feel-Good Food


Boost your mood the most by air-popping. Using low-fat microwave varieties will work too. Skip the butter, or at least keep it to a drizzle. Popcorn is also one of the best convenience store snacks; it is easy to find a bag with no trans fat and little or no saturated fat. It boosts your energy and is even better for your mood if you add a protein nibble (handful of almonds, string cheese) to go with it.

Try this: Shake four to five ounces of finely chopped bittersweet chocolate into your bag of microwave popcorn while it’s still hot. Add a half-cup of sliced almonds for a feel-great treat.
