           Well, why cornflakes? According to research, “Your breakfast cereal is the easiest way to get 100 percent of the daily amount of folic acid (the synthetic form of the B vitamin folate). “Replenishing folate in people who are deficient can reverse depressive symptoms,” says David Mischoulon, MD, associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.”

               Our everyday breakfast cereals aren’t only met as a breakfast cereal or a substitute for heavy breakfast meals because you’re on a diet; it can also boost your dead Oh God it’s Monday again mood. The different vitamins and minerals you get from it especially folic acid aids with uplifting one’s depression or stress. Amazing,right? Now for cinnamon.

               According to one study, “cinnamon’s scent alone can reduce irritability in drivers. Its antibacterial properties can also remove harmful strains of gut bacteria that may also cause depression.” That, I believe is enough to explain my reason for choosing the ingredients. For the recipe, well, when you’re not in the mood, you wouldn’t want to be bothered to much to cook complicated dishes so I decided to use this recipe.
