Ever heard of folate? If you’re struggling with anxiety, it’s definitely something you should keep an eye on. There are decades of studies linking anxiety and depression to a folate deficiency. The good news? Asparagus is packed with it. Just one cup will give you two thirds of your recommended daily dose.

Sauté, steam, or grill some asparagus to serve as a side dish. If you tend to snack on fries, consider this substitute: dip cooked asparagus into salsa, hummus, or a bean dip.
