Carbohydrate-rich foods help your brain produce the neurotransmitter serotonin, which can have a calming effect to your body. You might get a quick "high" from foods with simple sugars or processed carbohydrates like white bread, white sugar, ect. Instead of reaching for processed carbohydrates, reach for fruits, veggies and foods containing whole grains. These foods are filling and high in fiber, so their mood-enhancing effects last longer. Some good carbs are whole grains, beans, leafy greens, squash, apples, pears and berries.
