Does anyone have a list of foods that would be beneficial in trying to beat depression/anxiety?

I have read in many places that a simple change in diet can have huge effects on your depression etc but am having a hard time finding what foods they are. Everwhere I have read it has said eat foods high in this or that but it's just not helping I would like to know what foods exactly are going to be beneficial or even recipes that I could incorporate into a meal plan. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Using food to beat depression/anxiety?

Hi Ashory,

Well I know a couple of foods that help beat depression. Foods high in Omega-3 such as fish. Sardines, salmon... and the list goes on.

The other I know of is turkey. Not great if your vegetarian but if not, these should help.
