8 Stress Reducing Foods



What’s your go-to snack when you’re stressed?


We talked recently on how stress eating is such an easy habit to fall into. The key here is to find foods that you actually like that can also lower stress levels to counter this effect.


We regularly eat the foods listed below daily, and ensure we have them readily available when things get overwhelming before we get too fatigued.


  1. Spinach: the folate in dark leafy greens will leave you feeling great

  2. Blueberries: the antioxidants will boost your immune system to keep your body strong through major stressors

  3. Strawberries: vitamin C lowers cortisol which is the body's primary stress hormone

  4. Sunflower Seeds & Cashews: loaded with magnesium and zinc to balance your mood

  5. Seaweed: iodine helps fight fatigue

  6. Avocados: B vitamins and omega 3 fatty acids can provide stress relief

  7. Turmeric: enhances your mood

We hope at least one of these is available for you the next time you need it.
