Are you stressed? Maybe you find there aren't enough hours in the day, you have too many commitments, you don't like to ask for help, you try and do too many things at once, or you try and take on other people's problems . Sometimes you have no time to call your own.
If this is the case one of the things that helps is to be well nourished. So as well as tackle the issues that cause the stress you need to eat regularly and not skip meals. Keep your blood sugar levels nice and even. concentrate on slow fuel food and fill up with foods rich in nutrients. i.e. low fat protein. e.g. chicken, turkey, fish and pulses like beans and lentils.

Vitamin C (our bodies use it up when we are stressed) e.g. citrus fruits, kiwi, strawberrie, blackberries, peppers and lightly cooked vegetables. B vitamins e.g. wholegrains, meat, poultry, nuts and bananas/
