It’s no secret that what you eat affects how you feel, not to mention how you feel affects how you eat. The problem, though, is that oftentimes, the snacks you might be apt to reach for to make yourself feel better when you’re anxious or stressed, might actually be foods that make anxiety worse. But listen: It’s not impossible to find comfort foods that taste amazing and settle your nerves. You just have to get a little creative when you put together your plate.
However, it’s important to note that, while there are definitely foods that are generally worse for your anxiety levels than others, Lindsey Smith, aka the Food Mood Girl, a nationally recognized author, speaker, and health coach, says it’s just as crucial to remember that everybody (and every body) is different, and therefore, the foods that make you feel better during a bout of anxiety may change from person to person. “Every body is different and bio-individual, so what feels good to some person, might not jive with another,” she tells Elite Daily. “Since we live in a world that labels food as ‘good’ and ‘bad,’ I think it’s crucial to start tapping into what works for you.”
