Sweet Potatoes Drizzled with Coconut Oil
Lee recommends reaching for root vegetables because "they contain a ton of antioxidants that help fjght harmful free radicals and toxins, which form because stress causes inflammation and can weaken our immune system." Not to mention the natural sweetness of the potato, coupled with the coconut oil, can reduce your craving for refined sugar—you know, that urge you feel to grab a cookie (or five) when things start to go haywire at work. Choose the cookie and you'll likely feel even more depleted, and eventually more stressed, later in the day. But opting for this sweet side dish will leave you feeling satisfied. If sweet potatoes aren't really your style, feel free to swap sweet potatoes for yams, beets or parsnips if that's more your jam.
