1. Fuel Your Brain With Salmon

Oily fish is one of the best foods for physical and mental health. Recent studies have found evidence to support using omega-3 fatty acids — found in fish like salmon — to treat depression and other mental health conditions. Salmon also contains vitamin B12 and vitamin D, which both play a role in brain function.

Aim for three servings of oily fish per week. People who don’t eat fish can get their omega-3s from tofu or ground flax seeds, and vegetarian supplements are becoming more widely available, too.
