Eating Your Way Out of Depression with B-12

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

We’ve all heard of overeaters binging themselves into a state of depression- a vicious circle which is difficult to get out of. But eating for happiness?

Vitamin B-12 deficiency is linked with depression

Vitamin B12 is essential for many aspects of brain development, such as myelination (the production of a protective layer around the brain) and the distributing of neurotransmitters to and from the brain. So it comes as no surprise that the Mayo Clinic suggests eating foods rich in vitamin B-12 as a means of preventing the onset of clinical depression.

“Eat to live, don’t live to eat.”

That’s a great motto if you happen to be an android. The fact is, eating is a sensual experience which we were meant to enjoy. (Why else would we have taste buds?) The key to good nutrition is finding foods you love that will love you right back.

Male depression is on the rise. Is it the recession or “Manpression?

Here are some yummy appetizers and entrées which are naturally high in vitamin B-12:

  • Fish tacos- Made popular by Rubio’s, the fish tacos is a tasty fusion of Cal-Mex and seafood cuisine.  Take a soft flour tortilla, add some fiery mango salsa, a dab of sour cream and a grilled fish fillet (hint: salmon is high in B-12).  It’s a wrap!
  • Are you a Sushi lover? Then you’re going to love this- sushi and sashimi recipes typically include such high-in-B12 ingredients as roe (fish eggs), octopus, crab, shrimp, and mackerel. Pass the soy sauce!
  • New England clam chowder- just the name elicits images of salty sea breezes, sailboats and clam bakes. Don’t have any recipes handy? Here is a list of variations on this classic soup recipe.
  • Lean cuts of lamb are high in vitamin B-12 and a popular staple of many Middle Eastern cuisines. Here is a flavorful Lamb Moussaka recipe, as featured in epicurious.
  • Tuna casserole is one of America’s fave comfort foods and it’s simple to make- combine canned tuna, cooked broad noodles, and a can of concentrated mushroom soup. Top it with some fried onions and pop it in the oven for 30 minutes. Tuna is high in B-12 and omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Hamburgers barbecued with low-fat ground beef chuck are a great source of vitamin B-12. Serve it up on whole-grain buns with a side of oven roasted root veggies for a healthy upgrade from the typical artery-clogging burgers ‘n fries.




Fast Food Felonies, Part II: Top 10 Fatty Offenders

Monday, January 31st, 2011

From the small-time offenders to the major heavyweights, here is a top ten list of the fattiest fast food meals that you should avoid, rated from the least to worst:

Blimpie BLT 12-Inch Super Stacked- 640 calories

At a mere 640 calories, the Blimpie BLT weighs in as the lightest of the fattiest, although you might wonder why anybody would name their restaurant Blimpie if they’re trying to attract customers…


Steak ‘n Shake Chili Mac, Supreme- 1067 calories

The vanilla milkshake won’t be the only thing that’s jiggling if you make this fat-filled orgy a part of your regular diet.


Quiznos Large Tuna Melt Sandwich with Cheese and Dressing- 1220 calories

Oh, yeah. Don’t want to forget that dressing. As if the mayo and the extra cheese were not saturated enough for ya.


Burger King Texas Triple Whopper Sandwich- 1310 calories

The only thing higher than this monstrosity will be your blood pressure and your cholesterol levels.


Hardee’s 2/3 lb. Monster Thickburger- 1320 calories

Who says there’s no truth in advertising? This burger will, indeed, make you thick.  In the middle, that is.


Wendy’s Baconator Triple- 1330 calories

Add some fried eggs and a dollop of chicken gravy and you’ve got a complete quadruple bypass in the making.


Rubio’s Nachos Grande Steak- 1430 calories

We love your fish tacos, Rubio, but what’s up with this? Something is definitely wrong with this picture.


Baja Fresh Quesadilla Charbroiled Steak- 1430 calories

Their motto is, “Eat well. Live fresh.” Whatever happened to live long and prosper?


Dairy Queen Chicken Strip Basket, 6-Piece with Country Gravy- 1640 calories

DQ doesn’t even pretend to be interested in your health, and you gotta love them for that.  This fried feast is no exception.


Baja Fresh Nachos, Charbroiled Steak- 2073 calories

You might want to call your doctor and let him know you’re coming in before you sit down to eat this caloric catastrophe. If the resulting indigestion doesn’t send you to the hospital then the obstructed coronary artery will.
