Take a Chill-Pepita

An increasing number of 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. ⁵ 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!
