Are you particularly stressed and anxious? Then fill up on mushrooms! This food in fact contains tryptophan, a particular amino acid useful for keeping stress under control. In addition, mushrooms are tasty and with very few calories, therefore perfect for preparing many mouth-watering recipes. If you want to make an anti-depression dish, serve them together with chestnuts. Rich in Omega3 and vitamin B6, they are ideal for finding a smile even when it's raining outside.
Do you feel tired at work and cannot concentrate? Bet on vitamin B1, which stimulates brain function. You can find it in cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower, all seasonal vegetables. To prepare your immune system for winter, eat pumpkin at will. Not only is it tasty and perfect for any dish, but it is also rich in fiber, carotenoids and vitamin A. Alternate it with turnips, recommended for pregnant women thanks to their high content of folic acid and vitamin C. Finally do not forget the fruit: wide space for grapes, apples, pears and tangerines, for a quick snack with which to take potassium and mineral salts.
