YOu are responsible for what you put in your mouth
I recently heard a friend say "my mother makes me eat rich food." Well, unless she had a gun to her head(she didn't) Mom didn't make her eat. Mom may have pressured my friend, but my friend ultimately made the decision to eat the rich food, instead of standing her ground and saying "no." No matter what pressure, or coercion someone uses, you are ultimately responsible for what you choose to eat.
Restaurant food is often very rich. If you go there while being totally starved, you'll eat the whole plate, would you? But if you eat a little bit BEFORE, you'll eat less and could even bring back some food home for another meal! :)
I believe...potassium rich foods make you happy. Bananas always make me feel better....I also really enjoy lentils, raisins, and sweet potatoes! If you are feeling a little blue...your potassium might be low...so stay happy and eat potassium rich foods.
