    SAD is a type of depression that sets in from fall to winter, and can make you feel like you’re trapped in the beginning of a Nicholas Sparks novel. The reduced level of sunlight we get after Daylight Savings Time creates a drop in the mood-boosting brain chemical serotonin and an imbalance in melatonin, another brain chemical regulating sleep and mood.

    Fortunately, Eat This, Not That! has uncovered a handful of food swaps that hack your brain’s chemicals and reset your mood from foul to fair.


    1. Best Get-Happy Vegetable Swap

    EAT THIS

    Red Bell Peppers

    3 calories, 0 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 0.1 g protein, 0.5 g sugar

    1 tbsp

    NOT THAT!

    Green Bell Pepper

    3 calories, 0 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 0.1 g protein, 0.4 g sugar

    1 tbsp

    Why red? Aren’t all peppers the same? In fact, red bell peppers—which have been allowed to ripen on the vine and not picked when still green—have considerably higher nutrient scores than their underdeveloped brethren—more than double the vitamin C and up to 8 times as much vitamin A.
