Stress eating can be detrimental when the food of choice is a candy bar or bag of chips. Heed these tips and try these healthy foods that are proven to lower stress levels.
Snack on nuts. They’re rich in magnesium that helps keep cortisol levels low. Nuts tend to be high in calories, so see to it that you don’t eat more than a dozen a day if you’re watching your weight.
Go for broccoli and low-fat ranch dip. Broccoli is known to be packed with folic acid, which aids stress reduction.
Snack on a whole grain English muffin and put some jam or honey. Complex carbohydrate-rich foods boost serotonin levels, enhancing your mood and helping you feel calm.
