You’ve probably heard me say this before: What we eat has a big impact on our mood. If you eat garbage, you’re more likely going to feel like garbage and may have a harder time dealing with the cortisol curveballs life has a way of throwing when we most want to not be dealing with cherry-on-top stress with that hot mess sundae.
I recently wrote an article for health website Now Cure Me about the importance of omega-3 intake in relation to managing depression—aka why I make fish, ground flax, and chia seeds a regular part of my diet.
I hope this goes without saying, but I just want to add that nutrition is just one (if a key) part of the picture. It’s important to check in with your doctor about your depression to determine the best treatment for you.
