Eating Healthy While Stressed

I have been under a lot of stress lately, and that means that I have been craving sugars and comfort foods. Here's how I try to get my sugar fix without eating unhealthfully.
  • Whole wheat crepes with cranberry compote
  • fresh mozzerella cheese and garden tomato salad
  • dried fruit such as dates
  • fruits such as bananas, pears, and apples
  • the promise of cooking a healthy meal
  • whole wheat bread
  • comfortaing whole grain starch meals such as oatmeal for breakfast

Exercise also helps because it helps release cortisol and mitigates my need for carbohydrates.
