Stressed all the time that you have not kept track of your diet? We came up with a list of foods that will help you ease anxiety and reduce stress!

 

Salmon

  • Start pushing fish as a main protein for your dish! This fish contains omega-3 fats that may help reduce anxiety and stress. Salmon may also promote heart health.

Blueberries

  • Blueberries contain a great amount of antioxidants. Antioxidants aid the production of dopamine which help the chemicals in the brain regulate stress levels, and coordination.

Almonds

  • Almonds are rich in Vitamin B2 and E. They contain nutrients that help the immune system during stress levels. Grab a handful of almonds and you will be good to go!

Dark Chocolate

  • Cocoa powder is known for increasing endorphin levels and serotonin in the brain which contributes to stress reduction. It is also packed with antioxidants, more than regular chocolate.

Green Vegetables

  • Green veggies such as spinach, are not only great in freshness but also contain magnesium and folate. Magnesium and folate may help with feelings of well-being and regulate cortisol levels.

Turkey

  • May not be the ideal protein everyone eat, but turkey is loaded tryptophan, an amino acid that helps your body convert into serotonin.
