Don’t Let Stress Ruin Your Big Day – Eat Healthy!

Eating healthy to have a great wedding day

We know you’ve heard this a thousand times before – but you really are what you eat. Everything you put in your body affects you (for better or for worse), and not just from a physical point of view.

For example, did you know certain foods can actually fight off anxiety and stress? We have gathered some examples right below – so read on if you want to be healthier, eat better food, and feel better about the entire wedding planning process.

·       Spinach. This green goodie is very high in magnesium, which helps you keep the blood pressure at a low minimum. Consequently, this will also improve your body’s reaction to stress and anxiety, especially before the Big Day. Plus, let’s admit it: spinach is the best green leaf to add to a salad, so why not include it in your regular meals?

·       Walnuts. If you thought walnuts are just plain and simple delicious, think again. Yes, they’re great as snacks, they work marvelously in salads, and they can be even added to smoothies. Beyond that though, walnuts are super-high in excellent nutrients and healthy fats (which, yes, you guessed it, can keep your blood pressure, stress, and anxiety at their lowest).

·       Cocoa. Who thought the main ingredient in chocolate would someday land on a healthy foods list? Due to the flavonoids and phenethylamine found in it, cocoa makes you plain and simply happy – so add a spoonful to your next smoothie if you want to start your wedding planning day in a high-energy pitch.
