Top 10 Foods to Fight Stress and Anxiety
This hearty and healthy vegetable makes for the perfect dinner side dish – and it can also boost your mood thanks to the high folate content. I like this one either steamed or roasted, and a bit of lemon juice goes really well.
I’ve talked up avocados a lot lately because of their high protein and healthy fat content, but they’re high in a lot of other vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins, that will totally ease your stressful days.
A classic superfood, blueberries contain a ton of antioxidants to boost health and help you fight stress. Some of those antioxidants have even been linked to better mental performance.
All nuts offer health benefits of some kind, but thanks to their high zinc content, cashews are especially great for fighting anxiety and depression. Plus the healthy fats will boost brain function.
