A Chicken Skillet
This dish was born from my research of foods and scents with stress reducing effects. I found that chicken is a great source of tryptophan, which can help you sleep better and dark leafy greens as well as whole grains are rich in B-vitamins with the ability to calm your nerves. Berries are a good side dish and support your cortisol level and I think I will add some chopped almonds next time as they are rich in vitamin E, that helps to fight some of the damage caused by stress.
Lavender, scent of apples and red wine with your meal
Lighting a lavender scented candle, decorating your table with a bowl of beautiful apples and adding a small glass of red wine wraps it all in a nice, warm and cozy stress reducing package, requiring minimal effort and time.
One small glass
Yes, red wine in moderation has stress reducing effects, so do include one small glass with your stress reducing one pot meal.
