Stressful Foods

Foods higher in nutrients, vitamins, and minerals will fuel you more effectively lessening your stress hormones. And we know that there is a monster list of foods that heighten stress, such as:

  • FLUNC foods – Frozen, Left-overs, Unnatural, Nuked, or Canned
  • Dairy
  • Sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Soft drinks
  • Salt
  • Caffeinated coffee and tea – Caffeine stays in the body for up to six hours before it starts to break down triggering long-term infusions of cortisol.

Replace them with these stress-busters:

  • Fresh vegetables
  • Water
  • Omega fatty acids
  • Chamomile and herbal teas
  • Chewing on ice rather than junk foods
