Food Cures to Relieve Stress

Wild Salmon

Salmon is one of the best sources of omega-3s, those wonder fats that nourish your body from head to toe. It probably comes as no surprise, then, that these powerful fats also boost psychological health. Studies have found that supplementing the diet with omega-3s from fish oil decreases levels of adrenaline and other hormones associated with anxiety during stressful situations like test-taking. To get more of these healthy fats from food, aim to eat fatty fish like wild salmon at least twice a week. For a comforting (and filling) lunch, enjoy an open-face Cheesy Salmon Melt. Top toasted whole grain bread with salmon salad (made with canned salmon) and a slice of reduced-fat cheese, and broil until the cheese is hot and bubbly.
