My latest recipe over on Life Around Home – Pineapple Avocado Salsa. Not only is this a healthy snack alternative that is full of nutrients, it also has stress reducing properties with the addition of the pineapple and avocado. Avocados are high in magnesium and when you increase the magnesium in your diet, you are significantly helping to keep stress levels at a minimum and improving mental balance. Pineapples are great sources of histidine, an amino acid that helps minimize stress. So, after a long day when all you want to do is veg out on the couch – veg out on something that is low calorie, full of vital nutrients, and kick the stress!
