Food to Eat to Beat the Wedding Stress

Florist? Check. Venue? Check. Stress? Double-check.

Planning one's nuptials is *super* exciting but what a lot of Brides-to-Be are left reeling with is the stress that accompanies you on your path to saying 'I do'.

We're here with the best solution: food!

1. Avocados

Avocadoes are loaded with vitamins that leave your skin bright and dewy. Additionally, the heart-healthy fat and B vitamins are known to combat anxiety. Pick up a healthy avocado smoothie layered with cashew nuts from Juiceez as a mid-day snack.

2. Herbal Tea

[Spolier Alert] Sheldon Cooper was very right in offering a soothing hot beverage for the distressed. Chamomile is synonymous with calm; Sleep with gotukola / Sleep with Chamomile tea is ideal to catch up on a few relaxed zzzs closer to your nuptials.

3. Salmon

Order a juicy salmon steak at London Grill (Cinnamon Grand) filled with omega-3s that combat cortisol to reduce stress, and anxiety.

4. Dark Chocolate

Gather around, dark chocolate lovers! Your constant chunks of cacao are not illegal. It's known to lower your stress hormones so that your blood pressure remains at its equilibrium. Our favourite? Ritzbury sugar-free dark chocolate.

5. Kale

Wash, dry, and drizzle olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Pop it in the oven at 107C for 15 minutes and voila! - you have a delicious snack.

6. Nuts

As high-source of magnesium, nuts are a natural relaxant to your brain. Head over to Powerup365 to order delightful combos like chocolate cherry almond with hazelnuts, or breakfast seed mix available in 100g packs starting from Rs. 450.

7. Strawberries

Jagro has some of the finest fresh strawberries on the market. For a bride to be, this fruit comes loaded with vitamin C to fend off unwarranted stress! You can add them into yoghurt, a berry salad, or have a vitamin-packed smoothie.
