Modern life can be extremely stressful. Work, money and family can all be stressful, but you might not be helping yourself either. Rubbish in, rubbish out as ye old saying goes.
What you are eating might be causing you higher levels of stress so we have compiled a list of foods to avoid and a list of foods that are rumored to reduce stress.
Foods For Instant Stress Relief
Some foods are better than others are reducing stress. All of this is based on rumors, we provide no scientific evidence at all, but its probably worth a try.
- Dark Chocolate
- Green Tea
- Chamomile tea
- Anything with turmeric in
- Whole grains
- Peanut butter
- Wholegrain crackers
- Veggie sticks
- Slow release carbohydrates
- Plant foods, veg and fruit of any kind

As i said above, I offer absolutely no scientific evidence whatsoever for these claims but people have said that they make you feel better.

But lets not stop there, if some foods are good for stress, there are probably loads that cause stress…….Probably all the nice ones. Prepare to wipe all your favorite foods out of your diet.
