Yes, dark chocolate (in moderation)

This sweet treat can definitely give us a mood boost. Chocolate contains caffeine and theobromine, a compound that may affect mood. The popular indulgence may also boost serotonin levels.

What's more, dark chocolate also contains healthful flavanols that have been shown to help lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and improve cognition.

To keep weight in check, limit portions to 1 ounce of dark chocolate daily, or about 150 calories.
