Playing The Feel-Good Foods You Should Be Eating

What you eat can influence your mental health, and The Doctors are joined by nutritionist Keri Glassman to share what you should be eating to feel better.

Fatty fish - Keri explains fish like salmon and sardines provide omega-3 essential fatty acids, which are linked to brain development, cell signaling, and fish oil from these types of fish may help reduce depression.

Fermented foods - Kimchi, sauerkraut, yogurt, and pickles help produce good gut bacteria, which is linked to a reduction in stress, anxiety, and depression. She also says eating prebiotic foods like onions, garlic and oats are essential for good gut bacteria. 

Berries - The nutritionist says fruits like blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries can help reduce inflammation (which is linked to the risk for major depressive disorder) due to their high levels of antioxidants.

Nuts and seeds - Most nuts and seeds (almonds, pistachios, and walnuts) are high in protein, healthy fat, fiber are great for brain health and help to produce the feel-good hormone serotonin.
