There are foods to help you when you're feeling off, tired, stressed, angry, bloated, hungover, and more...

If You're Feeling Bloated...

reach for foods like pineapple and mint. A meal that’s both light and hydrating will help last night’s meal move through your gastrointestinal tract and will also help flush out excess water. Fruit hydrates more efficiently than water!

If You're Feeling Stressed and Cranky...

popcorn and almonds are great. Almonds are full of fiber and protein, which will help you feel full, while popcorn is a whole grain carbohydrate. Believe it or not, popcorn will help your brain release more of the feel-good, stress-less brain chemical serotonin.

If You Have an Upset Stomach...

ginger is the trick to settling an upset stomach. It’s thought to lower levels of vasopressin, a hormone that causes the digestive tract to spasm, resulting in queasiness.

If You Had a Few Too Many Cocktails...

water to help you rehydrate, and a filling meal that will balance your blood sugar. A healthy breakfast sandwich with eggs (protein), toast (fiber), avocado (healthy fat and potassium), lettuce (extra water), and tomato (extra water) will definitely help you recover.

If You Didn't Get Enough Sleep...

combining healthy carbs like fruit or whole grains with protein helps provide steady, long-lasting energy. Tart cherries and walnuts, added to yogurt are sources of melatonin, which helps regulate your sleep cycle.
