When I'm feeling low, I crave sweet foods. I eat chocolate, ice cream, cookies or cakes. But due to their high calorie and sugar content, they cannot be consumed frequently. Recent research revealed that there are some healthy foods which may improve overall brain health and boost a person's mood - Fatty fish like salmon; Fermented foods like kimchi, yogurt; Bananas; Oats; Berries; Nuts & Seeds; Coffee; Beans & Lentils; Dark chocolate. What food do you eat when you're feeling low?

@Beestring I suppose it's close to the way some online games- or other entertainment-lifts your spirits---by triggering little dopamine-boosts in your brain (when you taste the sweet, your brain tells you it's a "reward" and lights up some "Good Job!" brain-cells).
