Foods naturally rich in magnesium, zinc, omega-3 are perfect when feeling stressed and anxious
You may find yourself a tad anxious during our new new norm. A safe first step in helping to alleviate those feelings of anxiety is by eating "[a] diet rich in whole grains, vegetables, and fruits is a healthier option than eating a lot of simple carbohydrates found in processed foods. When you eat is also important. Don’t skip meals. Doing so may result in drops in blood sugar that cause you to feel jittery, which may worsen underlying anxiety."
Eat foods that are naturally rich in magnesium (leafy greens, such as spinach, beans, nuts, seeds, and whole grains), zinc (cashews, seeds, beef, egg yolks, whole grains, dairy, and chocolate), omega-3 fatty acids (salmon, chia seed, flax seed, edamame), B vitamins (avocado and almonds), and antioxidants (beans, fruits, berries, nuts, vegetables, spices e.g., turmeric and ginger.) Recent research suggests a link between probiotic foods (pickles, sauerkraut) and the lowering of social anxiety.
