Naturally gluten free and low calorie, tofu is a fantastic source of protein, calcium and iron. (Since tofu is made from soybeans, a highly popular crop, it’s important to make sure to buy organic and non-GMO soy products.) Besides their delightfully sweet flavor, pecans have been shown to lower bad cholesterol, and are the most antioxidant-rich tree nut out there. Oats are another cholesterol-lowering food, and are packed with fiber, as are bananas and raisins. Round everything out with…

Beta-blockers stop adrenaline from binding to beta receptors, keeping anxiety at bay. Coconut contains magnesium, which helps relax both muscles and the nervous system. Vitamin C in both the sweet TDE tangerine (a hybrid of a Temple tangor, a Dancy mandarin, and an Encore mandarin – exotic!) and camu camu help ease any stress-induced germs that might be trying to…
