When some of us are stressed, we reach for the powdered doughnut or the chocolate bar, and technically that could be stress eating. But that doesn’t help you stay out of stress, except for a few moments. And the after effects are horrendous. You know what they say:
“A moment on the lips, an eternity on the hips!”
So that kind of stress eating doesn’t help you. On the other hand, you can eat for stress–that is, change your diet so that you eat food for stress relief. Certain foods replenish and renew our bodies when we are stressed. Food for stress relief includes anything that contains:
- B vitamins, especially B-12
- coenzyme Q10
Not sure which foods have these vitamins and minerals? Try these:
- nuts and seeds
- blue-green algae
- spinach and leafy greens
Enjoy the taste and enjoy being free of stress!
Tip: Eating for stress works better if you start before you get way stressed out!
