Stress-busting Food…

What’s good for the body is good for the soul, right? Exercise helps you stay fit while clearing your mind, a good night’s sleep rejuvenates your body and sharpens your senses, and food… ah, food. A good diet is important to keep you healthy, being well fed makes you happy, and there are also certain foods that can help you combat stress. For example:

Asparagus: High in folic acid, which can help stabilize your mood.

Beef: High in zinc, iron, and vitamin B. All three can also help soften your mood.

Milk: High in antioxidants as well as vitamins B2 and B12, plus protein and calcium; perfect for a stress-preventing breakfast.

Cottage cheese: This one is also high in protein and calcium. For an even better stress-busting effect, cottage cheese is best paired with fruits that are rich in vitamin C (such as oranges) which is an antioxidant that can fight the free radicals that are released when you’re stressed.

Almonds: Munching almonds can be quite satisfying when you’re in a nasty mood. And the vitamins (B2 and E), magnesium, and zinc contained in these nuts are also helpful.

Blueberries: Very, very rich in antioxidants and vitamin C. This one might be a better partner for your cottage cheese.

Tuna: This low-fat protein source has high levels of vitamins B6 and B12. A portion of tuna for lunch on a hectic workday can do wonders.

Cornflakes: While high in sugar, cornflakes are usually fortified with stress-busting vitamin B and folic acid. And since you usually eat these with milk, it gets even better. Crispy rice cereal is just as good, by the way.
