Instead of a “chill pill” try a grape slushy. It is a well-known fact that we don’t make great food choices when stressed. The grape slushy is a good alternative to sugary drinks and it uses a widely-undervalued fruit (ok, unless you’re a wine connoisseur).

A study conducted at the University of Houston found “a protective role of grapes on stress-induced anxiety-like behaviours, and learning and memory deficits in an animal model of posttraumatic stress.”

Making consistent healthy choices based on awareness of how you feel before and after eating/drinking will show you how much what we eat affects our quality of health. Consistent choices can make or break your day.

Try this yummy sweet drink option. Mix one cup frozen grapes to 1-2 cups coconut water. Blend. Enjoy!
