They say food is the key to the heart, well if that is true then smoothies are definitely the key to the mind. Not only do smoothies help deal with hunger, the smoothie recipes that follow bellow will help you deal with the stress and anxiety that amass throughout the day thanks to their one secret ingredient.

How Stress Works

Stress and anxiety are tribal feelings, aren’t they? Not only do they leave you feeling sick and woozy they also seem to drain almost all your energy instantaneously. Stress is might seem like an obstacle that is imposable to overcome, but with the right tools you can cut down your stress and begin enjoying a more relaxed lifestyle.

While stress and anxiety might appear to be caused by outside forces, in reality, stress and anxiety are results of your brain being saturated in the stress hormone known as cortisol. Cortisol is usually secreted when in situations of danger, however, many non-life threatening situations can cause the chemical to overflow as well.

Unfortunately, when cortisol levels are chronically high, excess glucose is pumped into the body and this results in more fat storage and weight gain, especially around the midsection!

The Secret Ingredient

Now you might not immediately think of walnuts when you think of foods that help reduce stress, but walnuts are actually an excellent source of the stress-fighting mineral potassium. Potassium works by decreasing blood pressure, which helps to slow the spread of the stress hormone cortisol.
