We’ve all woken up on the wrong side of the bed. But did you consider your breakfast selection might be making matters much, much worse? A new study, published in the journal PNAS, suggests that what you put on your plate in the morning may dictate your mood.

Chowing down on protein first-thing in the day may help you be more accepting of those around you, better manage stress, and enjoy a better disposition overall.
