Feeling Anxious? Don’t turn to pills, turn to basic skills and enjoy combining foods in your pantry into amazing, healing treats. This is part of my #foodasmedecine way to eat!
Here’s what you need to know:
1. Walnuts have been shown to lower blood pressure and decrease inflammation.
2. Sunflower seeds are rich in magnesium, which promotes a healthy mood, safely and effectively as a homeopathic therapy.
3. Cacao is a great source of four scientifically proven bliss chemicals – serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine. These neurotransmitters are associated with cosy feelings of wellbeing, happiness, and can even alleviate depression.
4. Cherries, known to improve sleep, a critical component of keeping your immune system at it’s best!
Mix all this together and make chocolate bark, and the goodness goes way beyond amazing deliciousness! Have a piece in the afternoon, with a cup of green tea, and be happy knowing your afternoon pick-me up is completely therapeutic.
Note, the linked recipe does NOT include sunflower seeds, but go ahead and play with your food, walk on the wild side and add what you want… I highly recommend that you liberally sprinkle your chocolate slab with the seeds.
