Over the past few months, I have found a few recipes over the internet (credited below) and have been putting them to the test, especially in terms of making them gluten and dairy free. A simple one, but quite easy to mess up, is Muesli. There are so many variations of this, each one just a beautiful as the next. (Unless, you put raisins in them. Ew.) As there are so many recipes out there, it can be difficult to find out which one is right for you, so I will show you how I make my gluten-free muesli from a combination of two lovely recipes. While also explaining the pitfalls to watch out for!
A Food Guide to Calming Anxiety Symptoms
The foods that are mentioned in this post are snacks and small meals that one can quickly grab in a supermarket to fill up. They are quick, with few ingredients, and have provided me with the rare pleasure of eating without anxiety. To me, eating these foods is a form of self-care, they help me calm down, and not obsess about what I am putting in my body. There is so little that can go wrong, even at my most anxious, I cannot panic about these foods.
How can someone be scared of food? It is essential for survival. Being scared of a murderer makes sense, if he finds you, he is going to kill you. Being scared of falling makes sense, if you fall, it’s going to hurt. Food, however, has no emotions, it is not a malicious being ,intent on killing me. The chances of dying from food poisoning are literally, 3,000,000 to 1. You have a higher chance of dying via falling out of bed, than eating food.
