Nutrition for Anxiety by Anna Crawford MS, RDN, LDN, cPT, Joyfully Nourished, LLC
Let’s talk about “Diets” before jumping in to specific nutrition recommendations for Anxiety!
Diets can feel restrictive and the goal of kind, compassionate nutrition choices is to meet your nutrition needs in a way that creates relaxation and joy.
The goal of an eating plan for anxiety is to make food choices, in conjunction with other mental health care, that support the optimal functioning of your body and help you to feel well.
If you feel yourself becoming tense by the idea of putting an Anxiety “Diet” in place; first notice this, take a few deep breaths, and know that added tension around following an eating plan perfectly is not going to lead to less anxiety.
