Feeling down in the dumps? Your diet may be having a negative effect on your mood.

According to Good Housekeeping, what we eat – or rather don’t eat – can cause our mood to fluctuate. They spoke with nutritionist Jaclyn London, MS, RD, CDN, to find out which foods can help us feel our best.

Cereal – Love to start your morning off with a bowl of cereal? According to Good Housekeeping, London reveals it’s a great choice for boosting our mood – as long as what you’re eating is 100 percent whole grain – so ditch the sugary cereal and opt for something healthier.

Bananas – Not only are they perfect for grabbing on the go, bananas are chock full of vitamin B6, which London says may help prevent cognitive decline and reduce the mood-related symptoms of PMS.

Nut Butter – Packed full of energy boosting protein and healthy fats, Good Housekeeping reports eating nut butter will help stave off those pesky cravings for sugary, carb-loaded snacks.

Salmon – According to Good Housekeeping, salmon is a complete brainfood thanks to the DHA found in the fish. It’s also great for your heart and metabolism.

Cottage Cheese – London told Good Housekeeping, cottage cheese provides tons of protein and tryptophan, which can help improve mood and cognition.

Spinach – London shares she is a fan of spinach because it contains nitrate, which helps lower cholesterol and lower your risk of heart disease.

Pistachios -Fancy an after-dinner snack? Reach for a handful of pistachios, which contain protein, B6 and magnesium, which could help you get a better night’s sleep.
