Stress Eating...or lack there of

Some people eat their feelings, while others use stress to fuel them and to not eat. Both have extremely negative results on the body. Over eating puts stress on the liver to process all the food that is coming in, as most of it isn't healthy. The liver can't handle all that food in one go so it pushes it into other places in our body, like the skin as acne and rashes, into our joints creating aches and pains, into our brains creating fog and exhaustion. Not eating puts stress on the entire body, but extreme amounts on the adrenal glands, which work to keep the body in homeostasis, or happily balanced. When the body is relying on them totally they eventually burnout creating intense exhaustion. When your adrenals burn out your Thyroid takes over, creating weight issues and thyroid problems. So please no matter what kind of stress you are under, listen to your body, it will tell you what it needs.

Oatmeal is very grounding and keeps your body naturally in homeostasis, add some cinnamon and coconut oil and you have yourself a blood sugar balancing full protein, carb and fat meal that will keep you satiated for a fair amount of time.
