Nuts for the NUT!


Negativity
Depression
Worry
Anxiety
Low Self Esteem
Obsessive thoughts
Winter blues
PMS
Irritability / rage
Heat intolerance
Panic / phobias
Afternoon / evening cravings
Fibromyalgia, Night Owl
Insomnia / disturbed sleep
Suicidal thoughts

All the above symptoms can be the result of a deficiency in an Amino Acid called L-Tryptophan


If you can identify with a bunch of these symptoms then its most likely you are deficient in this Amino Acid.



L-Tryptophan = Melatonin = good sleep
L-Tryptophan = Serotonin = emotional stability / self confidence



MUNCH YOUR WAY TO BETTER HEALTH!

By eating foods highest in L-Tryptophan on a regular basis you can help your brain become happier!



Turkey
Seafood: shrimp / raw salmon / tuna / cod
Dairy: Cows milk / cheese / yogurt
Nuts & Seeds: Cashews / walnuts / pumpkin seeds / almonds / sunflower seeds
Legumes: beans / split peas / peanuts / lentils



This is my favourite snack, whenever I go hunting in my pantry for something to much on, out comes the ultimate snack of walnuts, almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, raisins, cranberries, goji berries, hazelnuts with a little pink himalayan salt. 
Satisfies the belly and the brain..YUM!
