    Default 10 Foods to Perk Up Your Moods

    Pumpkin and Pumkin Seeds. Your favorite snack foods, because they contain tryptophan, may boost your spirits as you munch 'em. (Note: Tryptophan also helps to regulate your appetite and helps you sleep better.) To get the most nutritional value, it's best to eat them raw. Toss them in salads or add them to soups, baked goods and casseroles.
