Don't Worry, Eat Happy!

It's common for people to eat when they feel stressed. Most often, the foods of choice are high in carbs, sweet, and fall into the junk-food category. When you feel stressed out, try eating foods that can help you de-stress! Crunch away stress with celery. This vegetable contains pthalides which work to block stress hormones and lower blood pressure. Celery is also and excellent source of vitamin C and fiber, which are important in protecting you against cancer.

When life gets nuts, add almonds! Full of nutrition, almonds contain heart-healthy fats, B vitamins and vitamin E to help support your immune system and nervous system during times of stress. Remember, nuts are high in calories, so limit your portion size to 1 ounce or about 24 almonds. When stress levels rise, so does blood pressure. Try unsalted sunflower seeds which contain magnesium and folate that help reduce blood pressure.

And when things get out of control, it's okay to slip over to the "Dark" side. Grab a piece of dark chocolate to help melt away stress with powerful antioxidants and flavonoids. Choose 60% cacao or higher for the benefits of reducing stress hormones and protecting against heart disease. Try adding some of these de-stressing foods to your diet and you'll be on your way to "Feel Better and Live Longer!".
