Many people mis-understand that stress relief food is NOT ice cream, potato chips, cookies, candies or chocolate.
In fact stress relief food has absolutely nothing to do with comforting you. Comfort food is all about emotional eating, and we all know that emotional eating is simply a replacement for a deeper underlying challenge.
Emotional eating may feel good during the fleeting moments it takes you to down that container of ice cream, but we all know that you feel worse afterwards.
So why do so many of us make bad choices when it comes to stress relief food?
Roger Gould, from his book "Shrink Yourself", says this:
"Food was transformed from a simple source of nutrition to a reward, a diversion, a punishment, a love object, a friend. Once that happened, food became a way to control your emotions and to deal with your feelings of powerlessness."
My goal in this article is to help you understand that stress relief food, unlike emotional or comfort food, is food that nourishes you from the inside out; it balances what your body needs in a healthy and natural way.
And in doing so, it empowers you.
Is this a new concept? Did you know that you can specifically choose your food in order to satisfy the core bio-chemistry of your body needs and help yourself to move out of stress mode and into relief mode?
Take a look below and learn more about stress relief food.
Hope this helps.
Next time you want comfort, try some carrot sticks dipped in chickpea hummus and a cup of chamomile and lavender tea...and if you have to keep your diet of chocolate, reach for a small square of dark chocolate instead (I know, Rome wasn't built in a day!)
