Have you ever been so stressed that you wake up in the middle of the night and eat half a box of crackers with peanut butter?
Yeah....neither have I. 

Want to know what I have discovered over the past few days?
I am a major stress-eater.
I know I can't be the only one!
The worst part about it is never feeling full. 
I did some research and here are five filling options for when you are feeling stressed.

1. Asparagus: contains folic acid, a mood stabilizer.

2. Almonds: Vitamin E, which helps to fight free radicals (BAD!) that come along with stress.

3.Salmon: contains Omega-3 fatty acids that boost brain function, helping you cope effectively.

4. Dark Chocolate: aids endorphin production

5. Drink water & go for a walk: fresh air and a cool drink can get your blood moving and kick your endorphins into high gear.
Tyra knows what's up!

I don't know about you...but I think I am going to reach for a piece of dark chocolate next time I am stressed.

  1. Yeah i feel with you. I never woke up at night, but i get this sensation mostly in the late afternoon and in the evening, for some reason my strength seems to disappear around this time;) I find it helpfull to stick to fruits and nuts...especially mango, papaya, apple or grapefruit. What i also enjoy is chia-pudding, because it feels sweet when mixed with almond milk and is very filling....
