Stress Reducing Foods

“The most important thing to do from a nutrition standpoint when stressed is to manage your food environment,” says Fran Johnson, RDN, LD, behavioral health nutritionist at Saint Luke Institute.

She recommends six super-foods to diminish stress:

  • Nuts
  • Salmon (can be thinly sliced, smoked pieces)
  • Raw vegetables, such as red pepper strips or broccoli, and dip
  • Whole grains, such as cereal, oatmeal or an English muffin
  • Dark chocolate
  • Black or green tea
