When you’re stressed, you may start to hear the siren call of ice cream, French fries, and potato chips. But tempting as it may be to reach for these foods, there are better choices that will actually help relieve anxiety—and won’t have a detrimental effect on your waistline.
In the mood for something sweet? Go for this childhood favorite. “Chocolate milk has potassium, which helps relieve muscle spasms if you’re dealing with physical stressors. Just make sure to stick with the low-fat version.
Oatmeal This fiber-packed food will keep you full and give you an instant lift to overcome stress. “Oatmeal helps with the production of serotonin, which is the feel-good chemical in our bodies. Use nonfat milk to make it (you’ll get extra protein and calcium), and mix in almond butter for added fiber and protein.
Raspberries Low-calorie fruit is a great, healthful way to get your sugar fix. Raspberries in particular are full of stress-busting antioxidants and immune system-boosting vitamin C. If you want a more substantial snack or breakfast I suggests tossing the fruit in nonfat or low-fat Greek yogurt.
