Tips for an anti-stress diet

Every day make sure you eat:

• An orange, fresh vegetables and dark green leaves for vitamin C, folic acid, selenium and antioxidants.

• Fish, such as tuna and salmon for vitamins A, D and E, essential fatty acids for your brain, zinc and manganese for your immune system.

• Half a pint of skimmed milk or two low-fat yoghurts to get your quota of calcium.

• Unrefined carbohydrates, such as wholemeal bread and brown rice – eat three portions to keep your brain serotonin levels up and to provide mood-regulating B vitamins.

• Onions, broccoli and tomatoes and drink tea for flavonoids. These are potent antioxidants that protect cells and may help prevent cancer.
