Anxiety and stress relief can be yours by just changing a few simple items in your lifestyle.

Can eating a healthy diet reduce your stress and anxiety?

Eating a healthy diet can relieve stress and anxiety. Instead of going for comfort foods that will give you temporary relief from stress anxiety, try eating healthy snacks.

So what would happen if you added some fresh fruit and vegetables to your life style?

Fresh fruits and vegetables can be easily exchanged for sugary treats high in sugar and low in anything that is healthy.

Plan your diet around foods high in fiber, and low in salt and transfats. Eating a balanced diet can help you even out your emotions and moods and help you reduce any stress and anxiety you have in your life.

When is a good time to eat healthy?

Eat healthy meals at the same time every day. Many of us are used to having a big meal in the evening, but it would be healthier to eat a good breakfast, a smaller meal at lunch time, and a small dinner.

I know this goes against everything we were taught when we were growing, but will make us healthier as we begin to age.

How often do you skip breakfast?

So here’s the thing..
