Walnuts or 90% cocoa chocolate

“Once you have been motivated to acquire something or engage in a pleasurable activity, the dopamine that was released by your ancient brain travels to your frontal lobe, where it gives you the ability to plan out strategies to help you reach your goals.[36] During this process, in which the brain turns desire into action, you learn new skills, develop new habits, gain greater control over your emotions, and form belief systems that allow you to better understand the world. Here, in a very small part of your frontal lobe, is where you begin to consciously decide what to do and how to do it.[37]”

-Neurowisdom, pillar2
