Surprising Feel-Good Food

Turkey

This is a feel-great staple because of its tryptophan content. Tryptophan, an amino acid, leads to serotonin production and improved mood. Better yet, it enhances cognitive performance during times of stress. You are more alert and less frazzled. A mood-lifting strategy for your lunchtime turkey sandwich is adding a tablespoon or two of olive oil rather than mayonnaise. But don’t skip the oil altogether; you will feel more satisfied and energized with it.
