4. Still have childhood nightmares about Brussels sprouts? Return to old favorites like celery or asparagus.
If you typically discard the celery from your Bloody Mary or chicken wing order, Farrell says you’re missing out. Celery has a bad reputation for being nutritionally weak, but it actually can help with blood pressure and cancer prevention.
Asparagus is a summer, grill-friendly replacement. Again, Farrell says it’s great for heart health. It’s also a great source of folic acid—a nutrient we typically associate with pregnant women, but one that can also help ward off depression in men by preventing a buildup of the amino acid homocysteine. Excess homocysteine is linked to moodiness, lack of sleep, and increased rates of heart disease.
