We’re big fans of the Mediterranean-style eating pattern, so it’s not surprising to see it recommended in this this article from the Cleveland Clinic to help people fight stress.
Vegetables, legumes, nuts, fruit, whole grains, fish, lean protein, and healthy fats are foods that can help lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
Why not offer some nutrition education to help your clients, students, or employees manage their stress? An added bonus of teaching the Mediterranean eating pattern is its positive impact on heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and overall health.
We have all the materials you need to spread the word about the anti-stress Mediterranean way of eating:
- Start with our Mediterranean Diet PowerPoint show. With 100+ slides, handouts, and a leader guide, this has everything you need to put on a webinar series or a lunch-and-learn session. It’s also useful for individual consultations.
- Create a bulletin board display about ways to relieve stress, centered on our Mediterranean Diet poster. Also include information on sleep, exercise, meditation, and other stress-fighters.
- Add an anti-stress look to your office or classroom with our Mediterranean Diet 9 Photo Montage Print. It’s a beautiful way to advertise stress-relieving, Mediterranean-inspired foods.
