Surprising Feel-Good Food

Pork

Keep it lean, including roasts, pork chops and pulled pork for barbecue sandwiches. Pork is bursting with B vitamins to fight stress. Plus you get a healthy dose of the neurotransmitter choline, which fuels your brain power. A 2006 study from the federal Human Nutrition Research Center at Tufts University in Boston links adequate choline intake with lower buildup of homocysteine in your blood. Homocysteine is linked to increased risk for heart attack, stroke, dementia and cancer. Lean ham works for the choline boost, but split those orders of bacon or sausage with a breakfast companion to get your choline without too much saturated fat.
