 7 Stress and Anxiety Busting Recipes 

The natural approach to dealing with stress and anxiety includes eating wholesome nourishing and organic (where possible) food. These 7 stress and anxiety busting recipes will help you to feel a little less overwhelmed and relieve tension on days when it is all getting a little too much.

  1. An easy side salad that holds many benefits is this fennel and rocket salad.

Adding seeds to the salad makes it even more nutritionally dense because they are a rich source of Magnesium. Magnesium deficiency is thought to increase food cravings and affect mood.

V:Gd – Delicious vegan and gluten free desserts

V:Gd – Delicious vegan and gluten free desserts

This is a sponsored post for V:Gd.

I imagine that becoming vegan can feel like quite an intimidating task. I mean, there is so much to consider. I think the no meat bit would probably be the easiest part, to be honest. Well it would be for me anyway. The no milk, no eggs and no butter on the other hand would probably be a real challenge! So t’s nice to come across desserts made without any of the above! Desserts that are pretty delicious and vegan friendly. What is even nicer, is that the desserts are Refined sugar free, Dairy free, Wheat free, Soy free and Gluten free! The company behind the desserts are V:Gd.
