Help Fight Stress With Healthy Eating
You already voted for this post!

Being a healthy eater requires you to become both educated and smart about what healthy eating actually is.  Being food smart is not simply about learning to calculate grams of fat, nor is it about studying labels and counting calories.

Healthy eating is all about balanced and moderate eating, consisting of healthy meals at least three times per day.  Healthy eaters consume many different types of foods, not limiting themselves to one specific food type or food group.

Eating healthy requires quite a bit of leeway.  You might eat too much or not consume enough foods that are sometimes more or less nutritious. However, you should always fuel your body and your brain regularly with enough food to keep both your mind and body strong and alert.

A healthy eater is a good problem solver.  Healthy eaters have learned to take care of themselves and their eating with sound judgment and making wise decisions.  Healthy eaters are always aware of what they eat, and know the effect that it will have on their bodies.

Whenever we get too busy or stressed, we all tend to make poor food choices that will actually increase stress and cause other problems.  To get the most of your healthy eating and avoid stress, follow these simple tips.

Always eat breakfast. Even though you may think you aren't hungry, you need to eat something. When you skip breakfast it can be harder to maintain the proper blood and sugar levels during the day, so you should always eat something.

Keep snacks close at hand. Keeping some protein rich snacks in your car, office, or pocket book will help you avoid blood sugar level dips, along with the accompanying mood swings, and feelings of fatigue.  Trail mix, granola bars, and energy bars all have the nutrients you need.

Make provision for a healthy munchies moment. If you like to munch when you are stressed out, you can replace chips or other non-healthy foods with carrot sticks, celery sticks, or even sunflower seeds.

Bring your own prepared lunch to work. Although a lot of people prefer to eat fast food for lunch, you can save a lot of money and actually eat healthier if you take a few minutes and pack a lunch from home.  Even if you only do this a few times a week, you'll see a much better improvement over eating out.

Stock your home with proper nutritious food. As important as it is to get the bad food out of your house, it is even more important to get the good food in!  The best way to do this is to plan a menu of healthy meals and snacks at the beginning of the week, list the ingredients you need, and then go shop for them.  This way, you will know what you want when you need it and you will not have to stress over what to eat.

Eating healthy requires quite a bit of flexibility.  You might eat too much or not consume enough foods that are sometimes more or less nutritious. However, you should always fuel your body and your brain regularly with enough food to keep both your mind and body strong and alert.

A healthy eater is a good problem solver.  Healthy eaters have learned to take care of themselves and their eating with sound judgment and making wise decisions.  Healthy eaters are always aware of what they eat, and know the effect that
it will have on their bodies.
