Talk to your doctor about folate supplementation. I have a digestive condition that severely limits my food choices as well and I went to my psychiatrist about a lingering depression I just couldn't shake. Given that I can no longer eat most raw vegetables or red meat, we decided to try a prescription supplement to up my folic acid intake. It actually worked like a charm.
The name of the supplement I take is Deplin, it's prescription only, but has a lot of research around it for it's effectiveness with depression. You could also try increasing your folic acid intake with OTC supplements, but they really don't have the same effect.
