I have a tendency toward depression and I am learning to not follow the thought pathway that moves me there. I was eating too much to help fight depression. Now I am trying to walk, meditate everyday and not give in to the thinking of depression. This is a hard time of year for me, but I'm not going there this year, instead I'm working to focus on what is right and everyday count what I am grateful for in my life.41
Lack of folic acid can be the major cause of depression, but junk food & processed foods are also the culprit. Heavily processed foods are laden with sodium & always lead to depression. To avoid depression eat spinach, asparagus, avocados, sweet potatoes, navy beans, bananas, black beans, watermelon, whole-wheat breads, apples, legumes, uinoa, kale and other green leafy vegetables. Take B-12 & B complex vitamins & indulge in seafood, like salmon, tuna or mackerel fish, along with nut oils.
