Besides being a beautiful color, beets are mood stabilizers because they have a lot of magnesium. They also contain a vitamin called betaine, which helps produce serotonin (a chemical in the body that regulates mood, appetite, and sleep). Dress up a salad with some colorful beets or even try beet lemonade
