Think volume when eating. Fill your plate with colorful food that includes whole grains, lean protein, vegetables, fruits, and complex carbs. Eating a balanced diet benefits your weight, strengthens the immune system, increases energy levels, slows the effects of aging, reduces doctor visits, improves mental and well-being, increases your life-span, sharpens focus, and reduces the risk of chronic diseases.
Food can even help you reduce your anxiety. Salmon, camomille, turmeric, dark chocolate, yogurt, and green tea have properties may support your mental health, but should not prevent you from consulting an expert. Other foods like chia seeds, bananas, oats, almonds, berries, citrus fruits, and bell peppers are rich in nutrients that may ease symptoms of anxiety.
