FOODS THAT BOOST YOUR MOODS

Take foods that keep you in good mood
FOOD is the basic need for every living organism in the creation. Among human beings, some eat just to live and some live just to eat. People do dieting so that they don't take more. This gives an impression as if food's role is only at physical level. Rarely, we plan to take food to get or modulate our behavior or moods. In fact, instead of taking drugs which are proved to cause very dangerous side effects, taking foods which can bring the same effect can give you great taste, pleasure, energy and save you from the side effects of so many drugs.

So, take good food instead of drugs. There are various tasty good foods to bring the effect you want. What foods to take for what effect?

Just Need To Feel Good All Over?


Try Making Dancing Endorphins!

Endorphins are neurotransmitters that you need to feel the thrill and deep satisfaction of living. A nice serving of endorphins gives you an overall warm fuzzy feeling. Think of it as nature%u2019s natural analgesic.

Complex carbs like pasta, breads, and foods with natural glucose, like grapes combined with plenty of water or sports drinks make the perfect mixture for creating endorphins. When you combine a complex carb diet with a routine of aerobic activity such as brisk walking, biking, or swimming your body will experience a warm sensation comparable to a soothing therapeutic massage.

Once the feeling gets started it's like being on a natural high. I like to think of endorphins as these little happy dolphins swimming, dancing and diving throughout your bloodstream, and having so much fun that you can't help but want to get up and dance yourself!

CHOCOLATE IS VERY GOOD (not too much eating, always)

Evidence is mounting that some kinds of chocolate are actually good for you. Here's the latest about the healthy side of your chocolate habit and taste-tested advice on what to try. Merry munching.


A happier heart

Scientists at the Harvard University School of Public Health recently examined 136 studies on coco -- the foundation for chocolate -- and found it does seem to boost heart health, according to an article in the European journal Nutrition and Metabolism.

"Studies have shown heart benefits from increased blood flow, less platelet stickiness and clotting, and improved bad cholesterol," says Mary B. Engler, Ph.D., a chocolate researcher and director of the Cardiovascular and Genomics Graduate Program at the University of California, San Francisco, School of Nursing. These benefits are the result of cocoa's antioxidant chemicals known as flavonoids, which seem to prevent both cell damage and inflammation.

Better blood pressure

If yours is high, chocolate may help. Jeffrey Blumberg, Ph.D., director of the Antioxidants Research Laboratory at Tufts University, recently found that hypertensive people who ate 3.5 ounces of dark chocolate per day for two weeks saw their blood pressure drop significantly, according to an article in the journal Hypertension. Their bad cholesterol dropped, too.

People who ate the same amount of white chocolate? Nothing. (It doesn't have any cocoa -- or flavonoids.) Word to the wise: 3.5 ounces is roughly equal to a big bar of baking chocolate, so the participants had to cut about 400 calories out of their daily diets to make room. But you probably don't have to go to those lengths. Just a bite may do you good, Blumberg says.

Muscle magic

Chocolate milk may help you recover after a hard workout. In a small study at Indiana University, elite cyclists who drank chocolate milk between workouts scored better on fatigue and endurance tests than those who had some sports drinks. Yoo-hoo!

TLC for your skin

German researchers gave 24 women a half-cup of special extra-flavonoid-enriched cocoa every day. After three months, the women's skin was moister, smoother, and less scaly and red when exposed to ultraviolet light. The researchers think the flavonoids, which absorb UV light, help protect and increase blood flow to the skin, improving its appearance.

Brain gains

It sounds almost too good to be true, but preliminary research at West Virginia's Wheeling Jesuit University suggests chocolate may boost your memory, attention span, reaction time, and problem-solving skills by increasing blood flow to the brain. Chocolate companies found comparable gains in similar research on healthy young women and on elderly people.

Good loving (maybe)

Finally, Italian researchers wanted to know whether chocolate truly is an aphrodisiac. In a survey of 143 women published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, those who ate chocolate every day seemed to have more sex drive, better lubrication, and an easier time reaching orgasm. Pass the Godiva, right?

Not so fast. The women who ate chocolate were all younger than the ones who didn't; it was age and not chocolate that made the difference. Still, if a double-chocolate raspberry truffle puts you in the mood, why let science get in the way?

There is a place for you to have chocolates with all these qualities and that is:

Gourmet recipes

Alaska Smokehouse Smoked Salmon features gourmet products which are produced in Alaska within an industry rich in scenery, history, and seafood. An abundance of delicacies are available from these waters, including wild Alaskan salmon, which makes a truly wonderful Smoked Salmon product, as well as herring, halibut, crab, prawns, pink shrimp, and sablefish. Most wild Alaskan fish stocks are at their healthiest levels in years, and we have shore-based processing plants in several Alaskan locations from which to source this delicious seafood.

All of our Smoked Salmon Smoking is done in Ketchikan, Alaska located in southeast Alaska (about 700 miles north of Seattle) among some of the richest salmon grounds in the world and "smoker-central" to our business. The smokers are integrated into our general production plant, which gives us unusually tight control and management of products, from the time the fish are hoisted on board the fishing boats in nearby waters, to when they ship from our warehouse.

Alaska Smokehouse is unique within the industry, in that its products are smoked in an Alaskan facility, located right on the docks where salmon are delivered directly from the fishing fleet.
