MORE ON EATING TO CONTROL STRESS

In yesterday's post I started discussing how what we eat can help us to control stress by supporting our serotonin levels. In that post we discussed eating spinach, avocado, brown rice, green peas, and collard greens. Today's post turns to fish oil and omega-3s. Nutritionists and many doctors recommend eating fish instead of taking supplements to get your fish oil and omega-3 fatty acids. Fish that are high on the list include tuna, salmon, sardines, and shellfish. In addition to being proven serotonin boosters, omega-3 fatty acids help us combat stress by increasing memory and cognitive performance as well.
