Take a Chill-Pepita
More and more studies show that plant-based diets can significantly improve our moods. Pepitas, in particular, can naturally boost serotonin levels in your brain, the hormone associated with well-being and happiness. They’re also rich in zinc, a mineral that’s essential for our immune systems to fully function. Try them as a snack, or if available, as a spread!

Nutrition Fast Fact
The Berry Best Antioxidants
From early childhood, our eyes are quickly drawn to bright, vivid colors in real food (watch out for those artificial dyes trying to fool you!) — especially in berries, as we know instinctively that rich and rare colors (blues, reds) mean rich nutrition. Only herbs & spices beat berries for phytonutrients and antioxidants, which boost your immunity to infections, cancers, heart disease, cognitive decline, and much more.
