Eggs are a good source of vitamin D and vitamin B, both of which are thought to boost your mood.

Asparagus contains the essential amino acid tryptophan. This is an amino acid that the body cannot produce, which means you need to consume foods that contain it. Tryptophan boosts serotonin levels and can even help to prevent anxiety and depression.
