Fighting Off Seasonal Depression from Rainy Seattle Weather
Keep your seasonal depression low by eating more fish!
As we know well that rainy and cloudy sky is tropical weather in Seattle. What comes with these conditions, dark and rainy is Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). This type of depression is related to changes in seasons. The lack of sunlight is the main cause of this type of depression. The expert suggests that spending more time outside will help, but the rain is a massive barrier that stops people in the West Seattle area from doing activities outside.
However, there is another way that we can prevent SAD during the dark and rainy times, which is eating food that contains high Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce the symptoms of depression and increase the effectiveness of some anti-depressant medications. So, how can we get the Omega-3 fatty acids from? What kind of food contain Omega-3 fatty acids? The answer to these quires is fish. All fish is the best resource for Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin D. Also, fish is a high protein. It is a low-fat food that provides a wide range of health benefits. Hence, adding more fish into your meal instead of other kinds of meat to benefit you to have better both physical and mental health.
Don’t know how to create your dishes with fish?
No problem at all! There are many ways to make your fish dish delicious. You can bake it with the seasoning or make a spicy pot and put some herbs, but we recommended deep-fried. Why? Because deep-fried can help reduce fishy smell and build up the firm texture. At Bai Tong Thai Stress Café, we proudly present our fish menu that we make a crispy deep-fried catfish that serve with spicy mango salad as a side sauce. Crispy deep-fried helps make the fish meat become an easy texture to eat, and the mango salad will bring the favors for the dish. The sour from mango and hot from Thai chili will make you blow the fishy smell away. Try it out anytime!
