Next time you are feeling stressed, skip the ice cream and instead enjoy a colourful yogurt parfait. Nuts Stress runs you down, which leaves you open to sickness. Almonds, pistachios and walnuts can boost your immune system with vitamins and zinc. Chocolate Research indicates that dark chocolate may lower levels of stress hormones. Chocolate also contains sugar (a carbohydrate), so it releases mood-improving serotonin. It's all right to indulge; just keep the portions in check.
This amazing alternative to sugary sweet snacks is a great way to incorporate some healthiness (is that a word?) into your life.... without feeling guilty about it.
Pair this with the old favourites, apples, pears etc, or switch it up and add some strawberries, or pretzel sticks.
This recipe can be easily altered to accommodate to your tastes. Add nuts. Forget about the chocolate and add some vanilla bean. Use semi sweet chocolates, or milk. Add a caramel swirl, if that floats your boat. Add peanut butter and bananas instead of the chocolate.
There are a gazillion ways to enjoy this. All without the guilt.
