Why this recipe is good when anxiety strikes:
- Calcium rich foods are sometimes recommended in the prevention of anxiety attacks. Foods naturally high in calcium include almonds, Brazil nuts, broccoli, oysters, salmon, sardines, sesame seeds, dark green leafy vegetables, raw milk, egg yolks and molasses.*
- In the case of fluctuating blood sugar levels, foods high in vitamin B5 are usually recommended. Foods high in vitamin B5 are avocados, bean sprouts, eggs, free range beef, lentils, mushrooms, mackerel, watermelons and pineapples.*
- Kale is a good source of iron. Nutritional Yeast is an excellent source of B vitamins. “Upon evaluation, researchers noted that both vitamin B6 and iron were lacking in the subjects with anxiety and hyperventilation issues, while those in the healthy group had adequate levels of these important nutrients. B vitamins and iron are particularly important for the synthesis of tryptophan into serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates not only mood and mental stability, but also sleep and cardiovascular function.”
