I’ll have a pan of brownies, a Bud light and a book on the side please–I’m a little bit stressed

musings from the trenches

Everybody has heard of the “Stress Eater.” Lots of people fall into this category. When they get stressed, they go buy a chocolate bar or, better yet, they eat a whole pan of brownies. Pretty typical. Pretty normal.

Or the stress drinker. When you’ve hit that stress point where you feel like you’re going to break, do you grab a Bud Light from the fridge? Or maybe you’re more a merlot kind of gal. Again. Normal.

If you’re not giving yourself the proper nutrients to survive you are easily doing yourself a disservice. Keep your head up the next time you get sad about something! Do NOT take it out on cheesecake!
