Good mood food: tasty foods to lift your spirits

Chocolate that makes you happy. It sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t. In fact, there’s plenty of other foods packed with mood-boosting ingredients, too. To help you out, we've listed some below (but only the ones you'd actually want to eat – no one wants to eat a sad, lonely almond when they could be eating chocolate). 

Berries 🫐

Berries are bursting with antioxidants, which may help manage inflammation and mood disorders. They also contain fancy-sounding anthocyanins (we can’t pronounce it either), which are what give berries their bright, pretty colours – and also happen to be linked with lower levels of depression.

Chocolate 🍫

But only dark chocolate (sorry, guys). Dark chocolate is packed with over 300 naturally occurring chemicals, several of which help release mood-enhancing neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. Luckily for you, our signature chocolate brownie (the base used across all our brownies) is made from 70% dark chocolate – which means we’re sparking joy with every bite!

Coffee ☕

We know you can’t function without your morning coffee, but do you actually know why that is? Well, your daily brew is more than just an energiser and a reason to get out of bed – it also helps with the release of neurotransmitters like dopamine and norepinephrine, which make you feel extra peppy and perky.

Avocado 🥑

When in doubt, reach for the millennial food of choice: the avocado. There's probably a reason we eat these little knobbly-skinned fruits so much, and it's because they're positively brimming with the good stuff. As well as containing folate, which can help with anxiety, avocados contain tons of omega-3 which is a fantastic all-rounder fatty acid for the brain.
