Fight Stress with Delicious Super Foods (Stress Awareness Month)
1. Add Avocado. Adding B-rich avocados to your diet can help elevate your mood. Avocados also contain mono-saturated fat and potassium, which can help lower blood pressure. This creamy, delicious fruit also has shown to ward off hunger, making you less likely to grab a sugar-filled, unhealthy treat when you start feeling the pressure. For an afternoon delight, make a tasty turkey sandwich or salad for lunch and top it off with some avocado slices!
2. Bring Blueberries. These tiny berries pack a powerful punch with their high levels of phytonutrients and an antioxidant called anthocyanin that has been linked to improved thinking. They’re also rich in vitamin C – another natural stress buster. Toss a few in your morning yogurt or pack in your lunch for dessert for that daily boost!
3. Nosh on Nuts. Many nuts, like almonds, walnuts and pistachios, may boost your immune system because of their concentration of vitamin E and zinc. Nuts also contain B-vitamins that help your body combat stress. If you’re an almond lover and want a great breakfast idea, try spreading almond butter on a piece of whole wheat toast for a morning treat! Or simply package up a serving size of your favorite and bring with you for an afternoon snack.
4. Feed on Fatty Fish. A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids helps keep your cortisol and adrenaline levels from rising when you’re feeling tense or anxious. To keep stress at bay, include fish like salmon, herring and albacore tuna into your food choices. Pair a grilled or baked fillet with your favorite green vegetable, and you’ll have a simple, stress-fighting, nutritious meal.
5. Fill Up on Oatmeal. This complex carbohydrate helps your brain produce serotonin, a feel-good chemical that can help you overcome stress. Go with thick-cut instead of instant oatmeal to enjoy more beta-glucan, a soluble fiber that keeps you fuller and makes you less likely to grab a sugary treat that could cause a greater spike in your blood sugar. Make a big batch on the weekends, then heat it up during the week for a quick and easy meal or snack.
