Hey, we’re all under stress. Good stress, bad stress… stress. It’s called life. If you’re busy, you can be sure stuff happens that can turn a merely busy day into a day of stress.
So what do we do to lower our stress? We grab as much time as possible to do relaxing things we enjoy, we walk, we run, we exercise, we visit with friends, we give hugs and we get hugs, we meditate, we pray, we sleep… and we eat.
And that, my friends brings us to the topic of foods that help us combat stress. You can only eat so much, so when making food choices when steam is coming from your ears, pick foods that can help neutralize some of those aging chemicals released by stress, do your body good, and lower your stress levels as well.
You can cook these foods into delicious recipes or you can eat them raw. Either way, here is a small but mighty list.
12 Foods to eat when you want to lower your stress levels:
- Pistachio Nuts
This is not a complete list… you can find many other foods that are also good for stress. This is my list of foods that fall in the anti-aging, stress busting food category that I would actually eat. Nothing weird here.
No muss or fuss to grab a handful of blueberries and pistachios, an apple or squeeze a lemon on an avocado. The rest you can cook into delicious, nutritious stress busting, anti-aging meals for yourself and your family. Choose to make (or order out) some things on this list and call tonight, a stress night off!
Eat well and bust that stress!
