The world famous gastronome, Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, was not kidding when he wrote, “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.” (We translated the French for easy reading.) After all, food and health have long shared an intimate relationship: It not only fuels us to perform tasks efficiently but impacts the way we think and feel as well.

So, it should come as little to no surprise that the foods we do (or don’t) choose to indulge in can have an impact on our mental health and play a role in issues such as depression, anxiety and moodiness. To help keep your brain smiling, we’ve rounded up those ingredients that have been shown to bring on the happy. Bon appétit!

It’s time we started talking openly about our mental health. Join the conversation on Bell Let’s Talk Day, January 27, and help end the stigma around mental illness. For every text message sent and mobile or long-distance call made by Bell Canada and Bell Aliant customers, Bell will donate five cents to Canadian mental health programs. The same goes for anyone sending a tweet using #BellLetsTalk or sharing the Bell Let’s Talk image on Facebook. But talking about it is just the first step: Visit letstalk.bell.ca for more ways you can effect change and build awareness around mental health.
