4.      Watching a tension-filled sporting event - Puffed brown rice or whole grains as a crispy snack and oranges. They bring down the tension and keep you calm.

5.      In-laws  for dinner - Garden salad with fresh beets; it has folate that deals with mental fatigue, forgetfulness, confusion and insomnia.  

6.      Increasing holiday bills - Mushrooms in fajitas or burgers, they are rich in selenium and Vitamin D that helps you get rid of depression and that enhances your mood.

According to Sass, these foods make up an important part of a stress-relieving diet.
