Did a search of those foods best for alleviating depression. (Not sure Lexapro counts as a "food" but privately think it might be most effective.)
The top five foods for beating depression
3.Brewer's Yeast (Ed: No.-SS)
Also recommended: raw cacao,dark molasses and brazil nuts.
(Cannot imagine that the depression induced by eating molasses and brewer's yeast wouldn't far outweigh hereditary mental imbalance.)
Other non-food things to do
* Get plenty of sunshine. Natural sunlight is a proven cure for depression.
(Note: walked to Cafe Grumpy. Is reasonably sunny.)
* Engage in regular exercise at least three times per week. Exercise lifts and mood and alters brain chemistry in a positive way.
(Note: walking IN SUNNY WEATHER to Greenpoint YMCA to sign up for Step Aroebics.)
* Experience laughter. It's good medicine.
(Note: not receiving good medicine. But then, no one in Cafe Grumpy is terribly amusing. And I'm not quite reduced to guffawing at my own wit.)
Macaroni and cheese with cubed ham and peas; stewed tomatoes; homemade chocolate pudding (which contains 'cocao.')
