Craving for mood food? Here’s a recipe of avocado salsa!
Avocado is a great source of folate, which supports the regulation of serotonin – the chemical responsible for mood balance. Salmon is rich in B12, a vitamin that plays an important role in allowing for normal neurological function. Folate and B12 are often used together in tackling depression – giving this healthy meal lots of potential as a mood-booster.
