    Asparagus

    Foods That Make You Happy-5.jpg
    This vegetable contains high level of tryptophan and folate which is usually linked to depression. The decrease in the level of these chemicals indicates the depression level. Tryptophan contains serotonin which is a neurotransmitter that helps you stabilize your mood. Thus consuming asparagus can reduce your depression and stabilize your mood.

    Greek Yogurt

    Calcium allows the brain to transmit neurotransmitter that induces happiness. Greek yogurt has more calcium and protein than any usual yogurt and helps you release stress or depression. It also is a good diet to make your weight loss easier since it contains more protein.
