The doctors at Harvard figured this out. I'm guessing they took some cranky people and fed them different food to see who cheered up faster.

These foods trigger a chemical in your brain to make you feel better instantly. It's worth a try.

1. Pumpkin seeds

2. Dark, leafy greens

3. Eggs

4. Carrots and celery (with or without cheese whiz?)

5. Salmon

6. Flaxseed

7. Whole grains, like oatmeal or brown rice

8. Red peppers, kiwi and other foods with high vitamin C.

9. Tea

10. Dark chocolate.

Pete and Jim agree that beer makes them feel better immediately. I chose red velvet cake. Works every time.
