Why Are Fish So Happy?

Eating a diet that is high in seafood can help keep your mood stable.  The EPA and DHA levels in seafood increase your levels of dopamine and serotonin which are linked to mood stabilization.  Researchers have linked low levels of these neurotransmitters to the increased risk of being depressed, anxious, and irritable.  

What type of fish are high in EPA and DHA?  Cold-water fish like salmon or mackerel are high in these two healthy omega-3 fatty acids. So try and get in two to three servings of seafood each week to keep your mood light….in addition to your CrossFit Verve WOD's, of course!


  1. JimmyC :

    is anybody else excited at this WOD- IT LOOK’S AWESOME!

  2. robyn :

    I think it looks fun too, but i probably should take a rest day this week.

  3. Mother of God.

  4. Sarah Lev :

    THANK GOD it was only half….that was BRUTAL and would have taken me like 2 hours to do the full bull…

  5. Slaughter :

    Hey does anybody know of local farms that have grass fed milk?

  6. Leslie :

    Slaughter- have you tried In Season Local Market? They have lots of yummy stuff. I don’t know if their milk is grass fed…

  7. Ali Nichols :

    Chris – Good grass fed milk is hard to come by in Northern Colorado. I know of a couple really nice local farmers in southern colorado that do sell raw grass fed milk, however there milk is not sold up here (yet). Try Windsor Dairy. They are good people! Here is there website:

  8. And Ali should know!
    Any news on HP yet?

  9. Oh OH OH. Leet gets his milk from Denver Urban Homesteading (just remembered) and it looks like Windsor Dairy brings (grassfed raw) milk (from their website) but I’m not sure if you have to buy the shares first:
    Drop-Site for the Greater Denver Area:
    Denver Urban Homesteading – Year Round Indoor Market @ 2nd & Santa Fe
    Drop-site Hours:
    Friday 3pm-6pm notice: these hours are different than the Market hours
    Saturdays 9am-2pm
    I’m heading down there on April 2 to buy some adolescent chickens if someone wants to tag along.

    The other day I went to sign up for the tough mudder by clicking on the link Mas posted, and it took me to the main tough mudder site. I found team crossfit verve, but it asked me for our team password?

  11. Cess :

    Bill – team password “fo sho” – all lowercase
