Walnut crusted salmon recipe

If the winter blues have grabbed hold of you, you’ll be happy to know that eating omega-3-rich foods like salmon, sardines, anchovies, flaxseed, walnuts and algae have been found to decrease depression.

Eating fish rich in omega-3 or tossing a tablespoon of sunflower seeds or walnuts into a cup of unsweetened yogurt will offer a mega mood boost when you need it most.
