Divorce is a very stressful process to go through. And as we all know, when we’re under stress we often reach for foods that offer a fast fix to their hunger or emotional pangs, such as cookies, pretzels, popcorn and candy. All these items travel well when we’re busy, but don’t give us the nutrition our bodies need to function well. And while we might feel temporarily satisfied, those processed foods high in refined sugars and starches can produced wide mood swings — extreme highs and then crashing lows.
A better approach: grab snacks of fresh fruits and vegetables, coupled with hummus, or peanut or almond butter. Other good choices are chicken or veggies in lettuce wraps rather than tortillas. Items like these, if prepared ahead of time, store and travel well and provideyou with many of the nutrients your body needs to handle the stress you face.
I will be sharing my proven tips and solutions with attendees for healthful eating during the process of divorce, and beyond.
