Happy Time Chicken

Eating chicken can elevate your mood and help you have a good night's sleep.

Four ounces of skinless chicken breast – about the size of a deck of playing cards – delivers a whopping 121 percent of your daily value of tryptophan, an essential amino acid important to your well-being. Tryptophan elevates the feel-good brain chemical serotonin and sleep-aid chemical melatonin. And, as research shows, improved mood and quality rest are two of the hallmarks for staying lean and healthy.
