  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts

Test Kitchen tips
  • Oatmeal's complex carbohydrates help your body release seratonin and improve your mood.
  • When you're shopping, buy wild-caught salmon if it's available. It has a significantly higher vitamin D content than farm-raised salmon.
  • Salmon is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, which can help reduce your risk of depression.
  • Just 3 ounces of salmon packs more than 100% of the vitamin D you need daily.
