As a busy teacher, you may not always have time to cook a healthy meal from scratch. But when you’re under constant stress, fueling your body with the proper nutrients is more important than ever. A study by the University of Utah found that people who eat healthy, home cooked meals are less likely to experience anxiety and depression. If you’re skipping meals or not eating nutrient dense foods, you’re more likely to feel tired, sluggish, and stressed. Alternatively, prioritizing putting quality food in our bodies does wonders for our mental health. For example, the mood-boosting omega-3 fatty acids found in chia seeds are known to help improve depressive symptoms and eating leafy greens every day has been linked with lower rates of anxiety! So, how can you make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need, even when you’re short on time? Check out these quick and healthy dinner ideas from our team of chef-nutritionists!
