    I know I use to deal with a lot of depression and winters were always the worst, but I have notices since my conscious effort to eat healthier and avoid the bad carbs and fats , my mood is more stable. It doesn't take away all depression , but certainly helps you to cope. Sometimes our depression is linked to how bad we feel physically; so eat healthier feel better mentally

    Great post and comments for those who are not able to eat for whatever reasons all those delicious foods you mentioned Sunshine. I fine Metamucil a wonderful and very convenient product. For my own use...which is also to help lower Cholesterol and increase my fibre intake. I went from maybe getting like most people less than 15mg a day to about 18mg a day with the fibre on top of my diet. I feel WONDERFUL. emoticon

    i've just started this week sprouting my own sunflower seeds - the sprouts are DELICIOUS and contain so many more digestable "goodnesses"....look it up - it's awesome - even my kids eat the sprouts like candy! emoticon

    This is new information to me. Thanks for the input.
It feels good to know I eat many of these things already. I understand sunflower seeds have more benes than we realized. Glad to see that on the list!
