For anyone else fighting the winter blahs, this article has some great tips on what foods to eat and what they contain that helps keep your energy up or keep your mood and feelings less angry, blah, depressed, etc. Then it goes through those minerals etc. and gives a couple different suggestions of how to get your daily dose. Awesome article. Brazil nuts work WONDERS. I've been a cranky witch for most of the winter and FINALLY went in 2 1/2 weeks ago to Good Earth to buy some Brazil nuts (they're currently $4.69/pound last I checked, but a pound lasts you forever). I just eat 2 nuts a day, and it took a couple weeks for it to sorta kick in/build up/whatever, but my mood? Has been completely turned around. With the exception of a few grumpy things here or there about school, I am chipper and cheerful and happy and even silly sometimes and I've missed it. It's awesome and the timing was perfect with exactly 2 weeks after I started taking them. Also, sunflower seeds are a good source of Vitamin D (what we're lacking in the winter cause the sun is gone, which is a reason for getting sick and being affected by SAD), but my dad told me the liver has to break that down into what your body can use, so if you buy Vitamin D-3 capsules specifically, it's even better for you. Anyone else have any ideas or suggestions for fighting the winter blahs?
