What does nutrition have to do with grief? … a LOT!
Nutrition is an important part of self-care. When grieving, we tend not to eat well.

1. Green Leafy Vegetables
Dark leafy greens like spinach are rich in folate, which helps your body produce mood-regulating neurotransmitters, including serotonin and dopamine. One 2012 study found people who consumed the most folate had a lower risk of depression than those who ate the least.5
Not to mention, research from the University of Otago found eating fruits and vegetables of any sort (except fruit juice and dried fruit) helped young adults calm their nerves.6 Department of Psychology researcher Dr. Tamlin Conner said:7
“On days when people ate more fruits and vegetables, they reported feeling calmer, happier, and more energetic than they normally did.”
