Feeling stressed? Eat this!

“A nutrient-dense diet may help amp down stress” – writes a blogger at National Public Radio today, in collaboration with Harvard School of Public Health, and I am loving what I am reading.

Feeling stressed and need to eat to feel better? No problem! Just, instead turning to unhealthy fats and carbohydrates, turn to these amazing foods to help ease your stress:

1. Eggs
2. Dark, leafy greens
3. Pumpkin seeds
4. Fish rich in omega-3
5. Flax seeds
6. Dark chocolate

A nutrient-dense diet may help tamp down stress. And these foods may help boost our moods (clockwise from left): pumpkin seeds, sardines, eggs, salmon, flax seeds, Swiss chard and dark chocolate.
Image from the post by NPR sums it up quite well.

The article is called Food-Mood Connection: how you can amp up or tamp down stress, you can find it on the NPR website.
