How Do Potatoes Relate to Stress Management?
Stress impacts us all. And the one thing that is always true about stress – it never goes away. At B.Komplete we are passionate about teaching consumers how to manage the stress we all face, in simple ways. Food impacts our mood, and we can choose what we eat to impact how we feel. In times of acute stress our levels of cortisol are UP, which increases are cravings for fat and sugar. However, in that stressful time, the worst things we can eat are fat and sugar. The best things to eat are foods that help to promote the release of serotonin, the hormone that relates to our good mood; feelings of wellness and calm. Complex carbohydrates help to promote the release of serotonin. Potatoes are an excellent source of complex carbohydrates.
