Leah Borski is a work-at-home mom, family nutrition enthusiast, fitness & wellness coach, and TheFamilyTableCookbook.com author/blogger. In Eat to Beat Stress, she lays out a simple and direct guide for using food to defeat five major symptoms of stress.
Research shows that when people feel stressed, they reach for food. The trouble lies in the types of food sought out during these times. Studies have found a tendency toward fatty, high-sugar foods, which throw off the body’s ability to function effectively and essentially drive people into a vicious cycle of compounded stress and poor eating habits.
Eat to Beat Stress demonstrates simply the mechanics of such a pattern and provides a fast-track to breaking it with 10 nutrient rich foods - including protein foods, grains, and fruits & veggies – that specifically target 5 major symptoms of stress.
In this booklet, readers will find an easy-to-use list of superfoods with a brief description of each food’s stress-fighting benefits, photos, serving ideas, shopping tips, cooking instructions, make-ahead tips, recipes from The Family Table Cookbook website, and a sneak preview section of family-friendly recipes from the upcoming publication The Family Table Cookbook: Cook Smart, Stress Less, Eat Better...Together. Each delicious recipe is quick to prepare and includes specific serving tips and instructions for babies and kids (8 months of age and older) so that everyone in the family can easily benefit from the powerful nutrition and stress-busting qualities of these foods.
