Forget the junk food, these healthy foods fight stress and bring the calm in a more fundamental way
When most of us think about comfort foods, our mind’s eye visualizes unhealthy foods to get us out of a funk. Depressed? Well, that tub of ice cream looks really good. Stressed? Nothing quite like chomping down on a burger and fries.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are healthy foods that can help you mellow out, de-stress, and maintain a good mood. Healthy foods provide good general nutrition for your brain so it can function at its best, but some foods contain specific nutrients that have a direct impact on stress and mood. These are some of my favorites.
