When the days get shorter and the temperatures drop, many of us start to experience the winter blues. The lack of sunshine can put a real damper on your mood, especially if you’re a beach bum or outdoor adventurer in the warmer months. And while an expertly-made libation can work to temporarily lift our spirits, we know it’s only a quick fix for a bigger problem. But if the cocktail is made with mood-boosting ingredients, now that’s a different story.
Nutrient-rich foods are going to make you feel better than the processed stuff (even though we like those things, too). So we turned to three ingredients—eggs, yogurt and kimchi—that are known to lift your spirits. Shake up one of these satisfying cocktails, and prepare to walk on the sunny side of life.
